pulling in sometime Friday afternoon probably with the truck and trailer.

I'll be there for fish fry but there's a Fudruckers down the street and I might go there. I love their ribeye steak sandwich.

Redeye, When are you getting your worn-out part's replaced? I'll stop by to bench race when you are recouperating and cant ride.

Sweet, thanks for taking us on the virtual trip, Mil.

Did you guys get to do the loop through Monument Valley park? I assume since you have been to Moab many times the answer is yes, but if not and if your Cali crew, hadn't been, you guys missed out. They have a small fee, but its worth EVERY cent, even if you don't stop in the gift store or anything.

Its like sensory overload, you cant have enough eyes in your head, there is something to see around every corner and the view changes so radically every 50 yards or so. Hillsamer and I did it this July with the sun setting. We were headed through with the bikes in the back of the truck trying to get home before midnight and he had never seen it. We unloaded the bikes and fired up the helmet cams and blasted it out in an hour. Fast for sight seeing, but not to fast to see most of it or be disrespectful to others. It was kinda funny, it seemed like we got lots of reactions. We weren't going too fast, and we certainly weren't being disrespectful to others and their experience, trying to be a quiet as possible. There were many people in busses, rental cars and Jeeps, and almost NO ONE on a bike. I noticed mixed looks from all the other tourists, some people had scowls and other had smiles and gave thumbs up and even shouted cheers and even "Pop a wheelie!".

It didn't dawn on me until loading the bikes back at the truck that the dirty looks probably came from (what I would have guessed) Americans, and nearly all of the cheers and thumbs-up's came from (I would assume to be) European tourists. Just an observation and really, since usually when I'm on the bike, I try to get AWAY from the tourist attractions, so maybe I was hypersensitive about it.

It did make me think about the way Americans revere motorcycles, especially in town. I think all kids should be required to ride a bicycle or a motorcycle in traffic as their main transportation for a year. This would give EVERYONE (except snowbirds) a feel for how vulnerable you are as a cyclist, and hopefully a healthy respect for others on the road. Snowbirds are another issue all together, don't get me started on that one. LOL

I was not aware that you could ride a motorcycle through Monument Valley. I thought it had to be 4 wheel only.
Yes I have been through it and we lucked out with some awesome weather when we went. Snow and sun. Both aspects.

Yeah, when we went out there for RMAR we spent 3 days in Moab before heading out to CO. We took a quick detour to MV and when we passed through the booth the lady asked us if we were going to be riding the bikes though the park.

We didn't know or else we would've planned for that. unfortunately, the bikes were mounted on the trailer and it was late in the day so we had to pass on that.

Moab is incredible.
