Day 4. Ass, gas or grass, no one rides for free. Two out of three ain't bad.















Craig got an up close look at these rocks on this steep down hill.












Weird little mushroom looking moss growth in the hot springs.





We are headed up into those mountains.

No, I don't use a GPS. If you hurry, you might be able to follow my tire tracks.

Time to wrap up this report. The rest of day 4.









We were a little early for the best fall colors.

















Mark is loving this.









The last day we loaded up and headed home. We stopped by the round barn. I haven't seen this since about 1992. They have done a lot of restoration since I have been here. Lot's of new wood and new shakes on the roof. And even a visitors center.











That's all folks. If anyone has more pics let's see them.

We didn't have any problems with the Suzuki's and the only flat we had was my rear tire in camp the morning of day 3 I think. That was handy. I got to change it on a piece of carpet in the shade of my trailer with an air tank.
See ya out there.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. You should have seen it. I probably would have had to give you guys oxygen or something if you would have seen it from all the laughing and hyperventilating.

For those of you not there, it went something like this: Mark let me borrow his stand and it was like a booby trap. It was one of those with a handle that goes to the rear. You put it under the engine and push down and the handle ends up on the ground by the rear tire. It's suppose to go over center far enough that it puts enough weight on the handle to stay upright. As I was putting the rear wheel back in the swingarm it started to teeter and I tried to save it. As the handle was coming off the ground it got caught in my pants and took me and drug me over the top of the bike as it went to the ground. Good thing I was ATGATT.
