    A few bonus pics, sadly not of motos, but still very good times . . .

    Mrs. RRR at the Pololu Valley lookout on the Big Island of Hawaii a few months ago. Married 23 years and no limits on motorcycle purchases by me = WINNER! :raabia

    RRR Junior, now 16, in foggy conditions on the summit of Mauna Kea. He's turning out to be a photographer, just like Dad and Grandpa. https://www.flickr.com/photos/runemaker/

    Overnight trip in Zion with Dad a week ago. Campsite #2 on the West Rim Trail near Cabin Spring. Dad hasn't been riding motos quite as much the last year, but still getting out on the trails and with his bicycle bike. Age 80 and going strong! :lift

    At some point, I'll start posting up lots more moto pics. Still out on the bikes every week. Life is good. Thanks for checking in. Appreciate all the friends saying hello. Try to keep random shit out of this thread. I'm sure there's a good place to post it in Jo Momma. :super

    Heading out with some guys june1 on Rimrocker from CO to UT. Then we all split from there. I was thinking of continuing on UT BDR and heading to Torroweap and then up to Capitol Reef/Burro etc. Then possibly up to Dinosaur area. Trying to weigh the heat factor and may just head up and go to Idaho BDR. Thoughts about the Temps that first week of June and camping?

    First week of June in Southern Utah is already hot, especially at lower elevations. I'd head for Idaho. :ricky

    Funny how a website has created such good friends among us four. Sharing each other's company, swapping 'fish' stories, sharing personal family experiences. I been very fortunate to have the pirates come into my life. Thank you RRR, Imu & Tae. You guys have been the best, been there when I went through some real medical crap, thanks fella's!!!! :thumb:thumb

    Glad to see you're doing well RRR !!! I was thinking of sending you a PM in the last couple of weeks, asking how you were liking the Versys since you have had it a while now. I guess, buying another one says it all. Congrats on the new bike. I'll have to stop in and say hi to Jason and sit on some of the new ones they have in stock.

    Hello ROK:wave

    As we know, RRR never rest's! The dude is always on the move, I know he and the family has plenty of travel plans this summer, but he may lurk once in a while, so hello RRR.:super

    I had a great time with him in Moab back in May. This was on the Delicate Arch hike early one morning, the punk is a serious hiker, he kept turning around, "Sam, you still with me?". That was a great and long awaited day for me to finally complete the hike up to Delicate(heart attack survivor).

    Greetings all! I have fixed the video in post 1879. Sorry for the lengthy delay, but alas it now should work.

    And now it's post 2000 in the epic thread! Do I get a piece of pie or something?
