Cool report, did you notice an old cabin with newer stuff around it on beautful road? The water dripping is bluff spring IIRC.
Double dipper was where I first met Zecatfish last year and he rode with us back to SLAP rally @ white rock. I'm thinking of heading down that way pretty quick, you got over a foot of snow since friday?

Ya know we did see some old cabins but I can't remember where. Always like to see the old buildings and explore them when ever I can. This was a long ride but a lot of fun too. Good info on last year thanks.

When I lived in Florida I drove a Mercury Grand Marquis. Great to own when you work in Mtn. Home, AR but live in Florida.

The problem was finding the car in the parking lot at Sams Club in FL. Only about 50% of the parking lot was Mercury Grand Marrquis(es?) 50% of those had scooter mounts on a receiver hitch so that narrowed it down a bit.

I kid you not the parking lot at Sams had about 30 hindicapped parking spots and they were all full.

After about a month there my wife aks, "have you noticed all the wheelchair sales and rapairs stores here?" I had never seen one before that.

having any hair at my age is a real plus 2wheels I see you are working on getting a little more grey yourself...by the way are you going to grow your mustache out like your German, or is it Austrian friend.... Love your ride report, beautiful country. I used to own a BMW F800 myself, found it not to my liking for the riding I do around here so sold it and bought the best dual sport bike made, the Yamaha WR250R......about a hundred times better for dual sport riding. The F800 was a rocket on the highway but too much power and weight for anything very technical off road. I'm sure some like the bike for that kind of riding but I didn't. The seat that came on it should be banned by human rights organizations too.........ride it for a day and you could not sit down for two days after ............worst bike seat I have ever set on......I looked for my shorts for about two hours and finally found them up my ass...........hope your 650 is more comfortable.
