Monkey see.......

Monkey do.......









Riding CA and staying in hotels is cheaper than riding in Canada and setting up your tent at the campground

Great photo's Hekto. Looks nice and warm.
Now we just need spring to get going here. I was riding this time last year but today it's going down to -25C.

We will return

Everyday is a winding road........

I'll tell ya. It's been a lot simpler than I thought to do this ride. The truly hardest thing is leaving, freeing yourself up to actually go.

Fantastic photos Hekto

Gonna be minus 26c tonight and minus 30c tomorrow night...I'm really hating this winter!

Got out on the sled today...and clipped a big tree Bent the left trailing arm but looks like it will still hold for the rest of the season...no kinks or cracks in it! Wild day of sledding

Just thought I would post a photo or two to take our minds off the weather and remember what summer riding is all about.

Took this photo near the top of the Bear Tooth Pass last August.



I thing of beauty.... curves and grades. And Posted Speed of 70mph.


Warm weather riding (hotter than warm)

Greg did you see the sign up there? It points to the far ridge where a sharp rock juts up " the Bears Tooth"

Nice shots BackRoader! Only two more months to go and we can ride again

My bikes are ready to ride and I hope it's soon cause the sled is taking a beating!
