Going for a ride in the sun seems to make you forget about all the crappy weather we've been having, doesn't it ??

At least you were warmer than I was a couple of weeks back....

Thanks, Booie T!!! Yep, the warm sun sure does wonders to ones riding soul!!
I hope your weather up there will warm up soon! I'm anxious to see some more of your great photos and reports, y'know!

Funny those caverns with the mummified animals. I have to keep that in mind and visit, when I'm in that area
Thanks Ralph! The ride is really fun especially 169.
Hope you can get out that way soon! The caverns are something a bit different to see!

Dave....Here is a link to where Thruxton is. I accidently put an "H" in there
and there isnt one. It is supposed to be TRUXTON. D'oh!
If you go to the street view on the link, you can actually see that gas station!

Re: Sorens First Big Adventure!

Wonderful RR, Suzi! Fun to read and to see the sights. The mummified animals crack me up as every place has at least one. Sort of like the ubiquitous Jackalope!

The roads looked wonderful and it didn't look that cold so the appearance is misleading! Love the desert for that reason, as at least there is usually some sunshine.

You and the bike look great together. Get that handlebar situation ironed out and it sound like you'll have it made!

See u soon!

Ohya, and i agree on the helmet hair...heck yours looks good compared to some!!

Re: Sorens First Big Adventure!

Great pics and story!! Enjoyed the pics of the cave and then when I saw Bob and the Sloth I realized I'd been in that cave.... I think it was when the wife and I traveled down to the Grand Canyon and took a side road just to see it???

Thanks D!!! Gee..and here I thought I was going somewhere unique!! I guess
not!!

It was warm on the way home when we stopped! It was the wind mainly
that made it so chilly! But the sunshine was awesome and felt nice by the middle of the afternoon.

Going to get those handlebars before I come up there for a week long ride.
If I don't, I'll look like a crippled old lady bent over in a permenent curve!!

See you soon too! August can't come soon enough!!

I may just load the bike into a trailer and drive south, east . . . We're thinking Nevada.

It's good to know that it dries out, clears, warms up if you head south, east. Helmet hair don't scare me none, lady . . .
Hope your weather warms up soon, Allison. Helmet hair may not scare you, but alot of us ladies don't like it at all!!

Thanks Jack! You probably were at the same place! If you went down Route 66 past Peach Springs, then you were there!

Re: Sorens First Big Adventure!

Suzi,
As usual, excellent RR! The weather this week is looking good, I went to Mesquite yesterday, and plan to go somewhere today. I have a conference to attend next month in Laughlin, and it is at the Aquarius. It seems as if you liked it OK? I've stayed in some Laughlin motels in years past that were not nice places to stay.

Hopefully see you guys on the road soon!
