Day 10 - September 1, 2014

I awoke at home for the first time in a week and a half. Immediately my mind went to where I could go next and how soon. One of the questions I had before starting this trip was would I like this...

Day 9 - August 31, 2014

Day 8 - August 30, 2014

The sun rose behind the clouds this morning. So it never did warm up from the 39* starting point before leaving. I am still surprised at how little time it is taking to make and eat breakfast and...

When I wake in West Yellowstone I am told it is 39*. But the day warmed up so quickly that by the time I finished breakfast it was a perfect day for riding. Little did I know, but this would be the...

Half-way equipment thoughts

Like everyone else, whatever I buy and use is the best and nothing can possibly be better. Or can it?

Day 5 - August 27, 2014

45* last night, that is more like it for August. I decided to run down to Colter Bay for breakfast. Still a little chilly in the morning but so much better than what I had been doing. I even removed...

So the previous night I had made a drastic change to my trip. Based on forecasts for the next few days it was time to turn north. This meant I would not be doing the Lander Cut-off or Grey's River...

Day 3 - August 25, 2014

The day breaks somewhat clear and cold. How cold? Try 34* inside the tent in August. Geez, not really ready for that. I was warm in my 35* rated sleeping bag but barely.

So I get packed up and...

You guys did better than I did going to Sinks Canyon. I could not see much more than 100 ft. and it was snowing. What a difference a day or maybe less makes.

What happened to Jackson WY? At one time maybe 33 years ago that was one of my favorites places. Now I couldn't get through there fast enough. What an absolute shithole! So very sad.

Heading around the west side of the Tetons in Idaho. Then into Montana. The weather earlier this week sure changed the trajectory of the trip. But that is one of the advantages of a loose itinerary.

Well in my defense I did have a Honda XR650L when I first got back into riding. After riding that around for a while then I got the 950. The XR650L does not really compare to the 950 though.
