Moved to the east coast

Said good bye to Prescott, Az on August 23 and rolled into Florence, SC today (Sep 15). In between I rode to the north rim of the Grand Canyon, Zion NP, Utah Hwy 12, Arches NP, Glacier NP, Yellowstone & Grand Teton NPs, Rocky Mountain NP, Cumberland Gap, NP Smokey Mountain NP, and even rode the "Dragon" today. Over 6000 miles. Only issue the bike had was a loose exhaust bracket (fixed by Greeley HD in Greeley, CO - GREAT CUSTOMER Service and top notch technician - Shay) Now that's my idea of a road trip.

2019 Wicked Cherry RGU. And an even bigger smile than before.

I'm a bit Jealous ~ I did a ride to Utah recently about 5k on the clock ~ only issue was Hot Starts at High Altitude. This issue was intermittent and resolved itself when I got down below 5000 feet

Looks like you got out of Colorado at the right time before the flooding hit. Welcome to the East Coast. Sounds like a great trip.

I love Prescott and plan to retire in AZ in a couple years. Sounds like a great trip. Just a bit different in SC, Eh?
