    The diner in Oakley is still here and thankfully under new ownership and management. I haven't personally had a chance to try it yet but have heard good things. Planning on hitting ere this weekend. They are only open weekends right now, there is even talk of them trying to open a bar in the down stairs.....

    Thanks for the heads up on the trails up there. I have ridden the five mile area on dirt bikes a lot. New to this adventure bike stuff, unsure about how the tires handle off road situations.

    Have never done much "off" road, I'm more of a gravel/dirt road to nowhere guy than the goat path up the side of the rockies :D, but am impressed with most dual sport tires, though they will never do well in mud or sand

    Ran out to dance between rain clouds yesterday for couple hrs

    Nothing special other than stopped at the Hill AFB museum for a few pics, and a chance to purchase a couple models (they are getting tough to find)

    Name that nose :lol3

    An elderly man (really nice guy) asked if I were, given my attire, getting ready to "take her up for a spin" - sorry for the crappy pic

    Thanks for the ride!
    Someday when I'm trying to get out of the big "City" I'll have to check out the museum.
    Oh and P-38

    Well played, you must have built models as a youth as well- whilst dreaming of serving with Major Boyington

    Yep!

    The "noses" are (in order):

    P47 Thunderbolt (nicknamed "The Jug")

    P51 Mustang

    P38 Lightning

    I haven't been up to the Hill AFB Museum for a lot of years. Maybe I'll have to go up that way sometime this spring...

    Signal, your rides / pics from around Utah have kept me entertained during night shifts. Thank you! :clap:clap:clap

    Greetings-
    Sorry for the slow summer posting, or rather lack thereof :lol3

    Crazy busy summer, as Iv'e said before, I am convinced every lap around the sun is faster than the last. To be honest, also have been bicycling much more than motorcycling this year (I do tend to do things in streaks :dunno)- have logged nearly 4000 pedal miles.


    However- from a few evenings ago- a run between rainshowers up a local canyon- Monte Cristo

    And- from today, my first day off work in 7 days- blue sky and 70 deg. Perfect

    East Canyon Res- low, like 20 feet below spillway low :huh

    Over toward imigration canyon, park city area- some colors turning but leaves looked really dry.

    The road down was clogged by 2 sub-par cruiser riders :dog, 15 mph in the switchbacks- shold have stopped for more pics :lol3
