Travel Update

The story with pics will come.

Quick hot items before some needed rest.

Saturday TAT took a toll on Motoguy and Makosun, both worked on the bikes well into the night to keep going. One blown piston and one fatigued old bike.

Sunday - Two of the DT400's blew motors and Motoguys 360 went down

My Dt400C is still going and Jjres's RT1 360 is still on the fly, Dman lost his motor today but is on the Backup Honda 650L

Ride for the day, sum it up, MUD MUD MUD and then some MUD. 4 hours we made on mile with all the bikes and riders on our arses at once.

I had to ride thru a Wheat Field for about a half mile to get out of the mud road and back to a place where we could stand up.


Will post pics and report later, just wanted to check in.

Wish we could have met up when you came through Salida. Now I know why I didn't hear from you.

I just rode through north-eastern Colorado, and Western Nebraska on dirt to the Black Hills- lots of mud out there too. It's been a wet year for the plains.

Day 1 Continued

Day one finished with all getting ready for the upcoming ride. I can tell you watching these guys who I had never met, was like watching a cross between Animal House and Mechanics 101.

Boss (Mrs Vinnie the Snake) is an unbelievable chick. Last year with about 2 minutes notice the RoadLessTraveledMovie.Com group showed up and camped out in her pad for about 3 days. By the way check out the www.RoadLessTraveledMovie.com and check the new trailer.

Back to the story, anyway she allowed me to put these motocycle riders and one wife (Joe's) up at the house and cook for all of us. Thanks babe, you rock.

The night ended with a great meal of all the participants, and the final pic before our Road Less Traveled adventure started. If we only knew what the hell was coming.

Left to Right - Dman (Dave), Vinnie (Vance), Makotosun (Gary), Motoguy (Mark) and Jgres (Joe "the I rode my RT1 360 from Seattle to Flordia")
