I literally just looked at the map on my phone and it looks like there is more roads then what I thought I was told. Hmmmmm I think ill head into town and get better directions and also some gas. Then its off on an adventure.
I got a DRIOD also. Don't know if you know you can 'check' the 'Satellite' "Layer" while in Google Maps. It'll then also automatically show you a street view when you arrive at your destination. Pretty cool. Oh, and don't submerge it - don't ask me how I know that one.

Well I'm here in Richfield Utah. I stopped by the Jorgensen Honda. Man is this place cool. They are really nice people. This place is a man dream. They not only have bikes both off road and street, but they have guns, archery, paintball, and all sorts of things. This is my one stop shop. One could definitely live here being that there is a food store right across the street. If ever in Richfield I definately recommend stopping by.

Well today ill be heading up the 89 north. Not really sure where ill sleep tonight, but I'm sure ill find something. Stayed in the mountains last night. Almost next to the snow. Reminded me of my Yosemite trip. It was cold.

+1 on Jorgensen Honda. I've stopped in there on two different trips through central Utah and had bike problems repaired while I waited. Once on my bike and once on a friends. Fun to explore through all the bikes, sporting goods, guns, etc. on the floor too!

When I was visiting colleges out west we drove from SLC to Bozeman through Yellowstone then down through Jackson Hole and Park City back to SLC. What an awesome drive that was. That was in June and it was about 35.

I've also been to Arizona and driven all over from Scottsdale to Flagstaff the the Grand Canyon. Also a great drive.

Hey dude, if you make it to Pittsburgh, give me a shout. I can show you some kick ass stuff in West Virginia and there are about two Honda dealers within 5 miles, about 4 within 10..., so you can gather some pictures..

You can stay here and we can go out on the town...

Dave, If you come through Lafayette Louisiana - I'm good for Beer and a Bike Lift - and maybe a couple hundred miles of riding, Louisiana coast to Texas.
Look forward to following your adventure, Happy Trails....

Victory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yay I finally made it to Jackson WY. Its been a long cold last few days getting here. For the last two days I have been riding with snow along the roads. I've past over a few high and cold passes. All with spectacular views. I can't wait to upload pics later today. O did I mention I don't have any heated anything too. I'm kinda wishing I installed those heated grips before I left. O well this is an adventure is it not? Hopefully it will get warmer as I head south. Funny how one doesn't notice the time zone change when on a bike. O well back to sleep for now. Then later today ill post pics and stories.
