Day 11. Played in the deserts of northern Nevada, before getting caught in a rain and snow storm going over to Idaho.

Let's get this finished ....!

Saturday. Tried to get over the Front Range from Idaho into Oregon. Friendly Sheriff told me no, still snowed in and he didn't want to come and rescue me.

Sometimes, my GPS forgets we're on the GS.


The Front Range.


Looped around to the Owyhee Dam, and took some Oregon back roads.


My final camp fire for the trip.

And finally, Sunday. From the John Day area to home.



And to finish with a flurry, I got snowed on again coming over Stevens Pass. Third time I rode in snow this trip!

Day 12. Reviewing the aftermath.

4200 miles, no tickets. Result. Not sure where I went 800 feet below the surface of the ocean, though.


Going to need a new tyre, this one has a squashed worm on it.

Top speed 101

I see you were holding back then.

Looks like you had fun, now go take some more pictures of great places for all of us still chained to our desks.

It was struggling, with all my camping gear on the back, 100 took a while to get to! I guess Jesse's don't help with the aero!

Day 14 and I met up with Pete for a ride.

Well, I failed to keep this thread up to date, but all too soon, my life of leisure has come to an end ... start my new job tomorrow. Very excited about it too, but I know one guy that isn't going to be happy to see me leave in the morning ....

Poor Bruce,

Lost his riding partner.

But on the up side, you can now afford to keep feeding him; he will like that.
