Back home

Back from trip. Wife and I loaded up 4 weeks ago and headed west. Petrified Forest, Painted Desert. Kingman standing on the corner, Rt. 66, The Grand Canyon, to Oatman, Death Valley, PCH from north of LA to Crescent City Ca. through the Redwoods, Crater Lake, Oregon coast, Olympic Nat Park, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota to Mt. Rushmore, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, and back home. 7760 miles. Rolled over 100k at the 20 mile marker in Missouri. Bike ran flawlessly the whole time. Glad to get back home though!

The wife took over 6,000 pic so I have to go through them to upload some of the best.

I was. My dream to ride the PCH since I was a teenager drooling over the Triumph Trident in Cycleworld mags. My wife was to go to Mt. Rushmore.
