Well here we are packed loaded down and ready to roll.
The first day we road 535 miles!! WOOOO I sure was ready for a rest and a snack or 5.. I think the body part that gets the most tired is the throttle hand it stays in one postion while all the other body parts can be shifted around…. like… You can stand up on the foot pegs or put your feet on the back pegs so you are almost laying down and you can take your left hand off the handle grip. We road on pavement and dirt roads the bikes balanced real well for such a load…

Hey we made it to the Border of Colorado and Wyoming!! WOOO HOOO

Either the sign was crooked or I was not awake yet? Our 1st Hotel we checked in at 11 pm.. uuuf I was a little tired to say the least. After 535 miles I was afraid my legs had forgotten how to straighten out???

There is my dearest loading up the bikes for our next leg of the journey!
To the Tetons and fast!!!

Loaded and ready to go.. Oh where is the Mountain Dew?? I am slugging it down to wake up!!

AHH The Tetons and a tree.. I really liked this tree it was so cool!!

AAHH Elegance in no motion!! This was in Jackson Hole Wyoming.

A Chipmunk Hey I couldn't post all motorcycles and no animals it just wouldn't be me!!! Enlarge this to see his hairy toes… to cute.. I wanted to pet him.. gee what a surprise… ha ha

      what a neat trip that must have been. so close to nature. Speaking of close, you were up close and personal with that chipmunk! I'm telling you that photo could be in a magazine! The lighting is superb!

      A long trip like that would be a great experience, but I'm tired from just looking at the pics. I must be getting old. :-)

      I can't believe you rode so many miles on a bike that's not a cruiser.

      You are brave! I think I'm carrying a lot on my bicycle and it's just a backpack or messenger bag full!

      Your shots are amazing! Well, worth the tiredness I'm sure. The tree is beautiful with the tetons in the background. The swan is very elegant. And that chipmunk! Woo! That is a fantastic shot! :)

      We did have alot on our bikes but they balanced out pretty good even at 75 mph.. Not hard to ride at all..
