Later in the day I bailed to the interstate to make sure I didn't run out of gas, but not before I bent the ever-loving shit out of my bash plate on an innocent looking downhill ledge.

So who wants to do the western TAT this year?

My momma never said I was smart.

Honestly, after doing Colorado and about 60% of Utah on my 800, next time I'll be taking my 450. It was nice to have the smooth twin for the east and midwest portions where it's long and flat (and for the trip back)... out here it gets rugged. It would be worth the discomfort if it improved my chances of self rescue, even if it meant shipping the bike back home at the end. I got damn lucky several times the first go around.
