Looks like my daughter has Saturday off, and so do I. Think I'll point the Bandit east to the land of the Sleeping Giant Friday after work, or Saturday morning. Don't have to be back till Monday night, so I might head down through Duluth Sunday for dinner at the Texas Road House in Duluth Sunday night. Must remember my Passport.

It actually looked like this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOhP1HTZQwY

I thought the picture I posted was photoshopped...

Glad it all ended well for both of you Kari .

Bloody mouth means internal injuries...it's done for! I killed an armidillo last night in the dark with my truck, scared the hell out of me fortunately no damage to the vehicle.

I'm in Moab now gonna try some of those trails from your book Hekto, Thanks!

White Rim is a great run, it does take all day but it is pretty easy riding. Great scenery though.
