    the bike although i like a low seat this one sorta seems to low or maybe it's the floor boards are to high, also the seat gives her plenty of room but seems to slide me to far forward

    maybe a seat with that allows me to slide back some might fix all of this, not sure

    but i've been 10 days in the saddle now and have grown used to the position

    other than that bike runs good and strong, lobes along at turtle pace better than the first water cooled i rode

    90 is as high as you can set the cruse control, although you can trick it up to 93 with the acell button

    but if ya get to carried away it drops off :lol3

    wednesday morning we got up still wondering about the missing gear

    ya know every year i tell her we need to pack lighter

    this year i guess she showed me :rofl

    thanks to covid 19 no continental breakfast

    i was ready to go she'd said she was hungary

    i pulled her into goodwill, she was all smiles till we realized we were there before they opened

    oh well, going out of town saw a kountry corner

    we pulled in and slipped around the bears out front

    bellies full we were on our way took a short break by the river

    in and out of construction

    stuck in traffic out side of big sky, the screen showed us we had a phone call then a text from larry at grizzely hd where we'd picked the bike up


    we stopped at the intersection to big sky, enjoying the veiw, checked text and vm


    [​IMG]



    we'd shipped 3 boxes, one had arrived :clap

    we talked it over and he had em sent to the antler inn in jackson where we were headed

    we talked about checking out big sky, i talked to a kid you lived there he told me if we were going to jackson yellowstone and cody it was gonna be more of the same & lots more construction traffic to get there

    so we skipped it


    we got a break from some of the construction

    some of our borrowed helmets and savealot hoodies

    and a big brown spot i still think was a moose, but we'll never know now

    i took a right, going by hebgen lake


    [​IMG]



    we pulled into the happy hour bar right on the lake


    [​IMG]


    could have been the prefect stop

    if it had been open

    2 guys doing odd jobs told us they opened at 4 and it was crabby wednesday

    back the way we came still looking for animals

    we came into west yellowstone gassed up

    back in town went by the hotel


    by the way i'd booked us at Al's westward Ho,

    it was cheap for the area & i just loved the name

    i kept calling it the westward whore :lol3


    we went down to the wolf and grizzly discovery center

    bought a ticket for 3:30

    dropped robin off at hotel where she found a chair & sat and read


    while i walked around town

    they had the coolest looking thrash cans

    [​IMG]

    she called a little after 3 and said did u book a room

    i said yes talked to the guy, told him i was on the way & we'd look at the email

    after i couldn't find a email i showed up sounding a lot less confindent


    thinking we might be sleeping in the woods :lol3

    it was all good he had room and put us in it in time to make the wolf & grizzly thing

    id already lost our ticket, but the dude let us in anyway, opps


    which was cool too

    i walked out on the deck, tru the bar down stairs not a empty table (every other table closed of course (thank u covid)


    they had a real live working pay phone

    [​IMG]


    they had one bartender and 2 waiters

    i leaned up on the bar she said no sitting at the bar & i'll get to ya when i can :lol3


    so i just stayed there and watched the chaos

    the crab legs looked good big clusters in buckets

    she got me a beer and i walked around some more

    i came back waiting for another beer bullshiting with her (when she had a chance) & some other folks waiting

    at one point the phone rang, she answered it & talked to someone about thier order while she tried to make drinks

    she finally told who ever was on the phone theres only 3 of us here and we're getting our asses kicked i don't have time for this and hung up on em :rofl

    i took a leak and felt like some body was watching me


    [​IMG]



    there were hats, tshirts and bras hanging off the ceiling pictures every where

    including topless ones of the gals who had took their bras off


    at one point i'm leaned up on the bar talking to a pretty drunk dude & a couple of gals

    he told us he'd been at a bar a few miles down the road & the tv was on a politial station he didn't like

    after the bartender had sit his drink in front of him, he said can you change that channel. she said why, he said i don't like that shit

    she picked up his drink poured it in a plastic cup & said that's a to go drink:imaposer


    still no where to sit, more boats and trucks showing up

    as good as the crab legs looked & as much fun as i was having i decided i better go check on the wife



    ok i did take some side roads on the way back
