    Yep. Plan on going back out west on the new Harley when I get the mods finished. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks.

    Planned? Yes and no. ;)

    I take a multi-week trip every summer -- but I don't do much planning. I'll head to the Rockies (again :D ) in July, but other than that, my "plan" is pretty wide open.

    This is in Wyoming a few years ago.

    IMG_4205.JPG Adventure comes in many different forms and at this time of year it means adventures with retiring college students. Time to ride, to have lunch, to sit and drink tea, to catch up and maintain your part in their lives. Good stuff.

    Here's my woods bike. Enough umph for the highway to get to the hills but light enough to handle fire roads and trails. Just wish it had a bigger gas tank.

    I convinced a buddy of mine to buy a dual sport and he ended up buying a newer version of the same bike I have. A DRZ400S. We just got back from a trip out to the Black Hills outside of Nemo and Pilot Knob. That is a great area to ride. We really loved it, but my poor friend was frazzled from some of the more difficult off road sections. It was a blast though. We went down one really rocky section that actually kind of sucked at the time, but when the day was over it was epic. :D

    My bike is the blue and white DRZed

    You will notice in some of the pictures I only have one mirror. That is because on a steep descent I almost went off a several hundred foot cliff / drop off when going over a boulder field of rocks that were all bowling ball sized. Instead of going off the cliff I decided to jump off and ditch the bike while going fairly fast. I never touched the ground with my body and landed upright on my feet though. It was a Perfect 10 dismount for sure. :D

    image.jpeg Took the little stallion over an incredibly scenic river. Drove over rail road trestles, and old rail tunnels thru mountains and landed on Idaho's St. Joe river.

    I didn't take pics or the river or tunnels because all I have is an I phone. Needless to say the pics wouldn't do it justice, it's just an amazing ride and along the river it's nice and twisty. Being that there were few vehicles on it I was able to make it my personal Isle of Man and took advantage of it. Yeah.

    Here's from the top of a pass before heading into to gravel road and into Montana.

    image.jpeg Drove thru Heyburn state park and onto the Palouse highway into Washington state.

    Heyburn park was 18 miles of twisties and it was easy to max out the little Stallion on the road with its small horsepower.

    image.jpeg image.jpeg Took a ride this afternoon in the southern part of the county. It looked like there was some snow up higher and I thought it would be no issue getting to where I needed to go.

    I got up to around '4500 ft and I started getting into snow. It was hard to see but under all the timber it was still solidly filled in with snow.

    Pushed the bike a ways thru some of it and it just got worse and lots deeper. Bummer. Turned around and went back home.

    Soon I'll fire up the Suzuki and Harley road machines and we're taking an road trip thru Montana.
