    I find it hard to believe 3 years have passed since I last rode my dream trip!

    @larryboy and I completed the Grand Canyon Backcountry Adventure Route in 2016!
    After that ride, I completed my best RR -
    Wanna ride the GCBAR with me?

    Larryboy was too busy building bikes to go for a ride with me this time...

    ...so I brought along another Ride Reporter...

    ...someone you probably already know.

    We endure traffic jams and an over-exposure to color.

    [​IMG]


    Billions of stars light our camps...

    [​IMG]


    ...and color lines our paths.

    [​IMG]



    So hang onto your handlebars...

    ...and prepare for trails to Heaven!

    The photography in your reports is always super. Looking forward to the reveal of the other guy! Is he a youtuber, by chance?
