    A special “thank you” to all for the hospitality that was extended to me on my first meet and greet event.

    Many thanks to riders that posted pics.
    Next year will be a different bike

    Nate, Glad you made it home to Cedar City ok. Would love to see a pic of that tire.

    SFcootz, what can I say except THANK YOU for organizing a great event

    I'd already made a trip to Texas last month on this tire, that's what did in the center. Miles and miles of straight roads, yuck.

    For what it's worth, not the worst tire I've ridden on. Same brand/model tire from a few years ago.......

    Very glad to be back in the saddle, even if it was on an easy route. We need to get together around a camp fire.

    you too, Toney ... loved my Fat Toney $0.99 mini-bungee KLR cruise-control on my loooong ride home! :thumb

    Hi Carlos! No, the water is actually cooler than the Eagleville hot springs ... had a nice easy soak on Thursday in the Pyramid Ranch hot spring ...

    looking for “portrait” focus apps for my iPhone 6, thanks to your pics ... :lol3

    The "portrait" mode was introduced with the iPhone 7 Plus. I think here are some apps that give the "Bokeh Effect" that people like, but my pics where taken on the iPhone XsMax.
