San Francisco to Arches N.P. Utah via The North Rim of The Grand Canyon.
Included Yosemite, Zion, and Bryce Canyon. I had to hike 12 miles or so to
see the actual Grand Canyon as the National park sits above a side canyon,
one of the most beautiful sights I've ever seen in and of itself.
I rode back through central Nevada and several smaller mountain ranges.
Is it possible to fall in love with a landscape? I think I did.
Got home, rested a couple days and rode the coast up to Glacier Lake in
Oregon and back through the Sierra Nevada mountains. Appro. miles as I
used the string on a map technique (seriously) was about 3700 miles.
The first day I worked a graveyard shift and set my personal record by
riding 404 miles to Tonopah. It's closer but I got lost on the freeway.

I don't keep accurate stats when I travel. My longest ride was about 7000mi over 7 weeks. My longest day was about 500mi on a 63 Sportster. One of my best iron butt runs was 200 mi on an early 70's SL90.
The gate guard glares at me. "It's after curfew." He looks me up and down, "What do you think you are, some kind of ****** tourist?" ..Phu Loi 1969
