You are bypassing HWY 12 in southern Utah, a National Scenic Byway and an absolute awesome ride I did last August. You won't want to miss it if you haven't ridden it yet. I rode from Grand Canyon up around to St George and then up 12 northeast to Moab and then down to Durango and on East.
I'm probably going to refigure most of this. I'm doing this ride with my dad who is 73. After 40 years I've finally gotten him to start riding again and I'm just concerned that this may be too much for him to do. I don't mind putting these kind of miles in but I'm just not sure he's up to that level of riding every day.
Man, you are so close, take the time and drop down into Prescott Arizona and take 89A I think up to Jerome and experience a cool little town with a great view of the valley below. Eat you a burger at the Haunted Hamburger and sit on the outdoor balcony. Cold beer and great burgers. Then you can drop down into Sedona and work your way back up to Flagstaff. Also, look up the town of Seligmon, Az. It will throw you back in time of the good ole days on Route 66. It's just east of Kingman. Enjoy.
On your SE Washington leg, stop by Palouse falls, it's a gravel road in but a great spot to see (and the roads around Starbuck, WA have some decent twisties. And drop me a message a couple days out. I'm in the Tri-Cities area and if I am off work I'll meet you for a beer or lunch on your travels.
What I'm looking at now is just getting my dad's RG to Portland and using that as a base as I have friends there. We'll probably do an out and back to Glacier and then another one down the PCH and maybe Yosemite before going back to Portland. As I said before I think the original plan is just too much for dad to handle. He started riding again at Bike Week in Daytona after a 40 year layoff. He's 73 and I don't want to push him too hard.
No...not on Hester. I'm renting a 411cc Royal Enfield Himalayan. I expect to spend 14-15 days riding from Kathmandu, Nepal to the first Mt Everest base camp near the Rogok glacier and meandering back to Nepal. I fly from Texas May 2nd, land May 4th, and hit the trail on May 5th. Tons of...
Howdy again friends of the wind!!
In my previous post about my trip through Idaho and Montana, I had mentioned that I had a bad habit of spending time on google maps creating different routes through some country that looks like it is worth riding. We here is another trip. Haven't completed...
My girlfriend and I woke up Friday morning and decided to go for a ride for breakfast. We stopped at the Astoria diner in York, PA. Then decided to hop on PA 234 West which is a nice 2 lane road that parallels US 30 until they meet outside of Arendtsville, PA. I'm a big fan of historic roads...
Today I took the scoot out for a little ride. It was 39 degrees when I left and it never got above 41. I rode for 250 miles and it felt great. I have heated gear and it makes me feel so loose. After 120 miles I stopped for fuel and wasn't stiff at all. The bike loves that cold air too...
