Re: My Ride to the Spring 2008 Pashnit Gathering

You stole that odometer off an old, worn out bike, right? It CAN"T be original to that gorgeous, pristine Wing!

What a great trip and beautiful pix. Here's to the next 100,000 miles!



He's thinkin', "Hmmmmm - where'm I gonna ride? I didn't see a kid seat on that Wing ..."

Re: My Ride to the Spring 2008 Pashnit Gathering

Wednesday morning I left Moab and took a very scenic ride to I-70 on Utah Highway 128 through the Sorrell River Canyon. This is a do not miss road if you’re ever in the area.

For that matter, Interstate 70 across Utah and Colorado is beautiful compared to other interstates.

Crossing Vail Pass on Interstate 70 – Still LOTS of Snow!












Longview Pass









Buffalo Herd Overlook on I-70


Once I was east of the Rockies I put the camera away and concentrated on the ride. I arrived home mid-afternoon on Thursday, and left for work on Sunday, arriving in Alabama on Sunday night. The only problem I had on the entire trip was one blown headlight!

Arriving in Decatur, Alabama on Sunday night, May 18th


THE END

FINALLY! The report I have been waiting for since Mother's Day!!!
Well worth the wait, Mark. But then your reports always are
I love Arches National Park...your pics of it were fantastic.
I also saw a few winter calendar submissions among your photos


P.S. Your new grandbaby is a handsome little guy! Congrats!

Bruce,

Yes that is the original odometer! Quite a few cans of Honda Spray Polish involved in those miles!

This is the only "kid seat" that mom will allow for now;

Thanks Kelly! We will have to wait and see about the calendar, but one thing is for sure, the kid is truly a handsome little guy!

Re: My Ride to the Spring 2008 Pashnit Gathering

Once again Mark your ride report is amazing-- great pictures and engaging narrative. I've been looking forward to reading about your next ride adventure so thanks for sharing. That is no doubt the cleanest 100k 'wing on the planet although I'm looking forward to some ride reports with your 'busa . I love how you can knock off a 1000 mile day and mention it in passing in a single sentence .

Those of you that haven't read Mark's previous articles on his cross continent-rides, you owe it to yourself to do so:

Scenes like this are what keep me riding...
