Thumb Nice trip on a PC

Just found your thread, and enjoyed the trip you went on. Imagine my surprise to find a fellow Coaster (PC rider) traveling in N. AZ. I live in Page, and have toured through several areas in Utah, and North Rim of Grand Canyon, but haven't ventured south. I have camped in Oak Creek Canyon-in an rv, but need to ride it this year.

If you need more stamps in your passport, you could make a great trip into Southern Utah and loop around to Southern Colorado.

Good luck on your Pacific Coast Highway ride. I'm envious.

After reading of your journey, I might get brave enough to post my backroad mountain journey the length of Utah.

Thanks Phil,

It's always fun to meet up with another PC rider...I'm happy that you enjoyed my sort of clumsy attempt.....

Greg,

It looks like you must have a couple of neat bikes? Thanks much for your comments. I never expected anyone to even write in! That's really great!

Thanks again,

Gary

Woodshed,

I've planned a ride up to Zion, Bryce, and on over through the Canyonlands several times, but something always came up. Hopefully some day?? I
sure hope you get the time to write up a RR on your back-road trip? Good luck. Thanks for commenting and for the good luck wishes.

Gary

Very cool! I've been to most of the places you mentioned; at my trip to Wupatki last Spring, I was amazed to see an original, 800-year-old wooden beam! Not an easy thing to find in the Americas.

Wow! 800 years? We were in the wood-working business for 35 years, so things like that really interest me. That's a great place to visit.

Snowy Superstition Mountains

The Superstition Mountains in the background after a bit of snow last winter. The elevation there at the highest level is near
6,000 feet. Many books and other news materials have been written about this area with all of it's gold mining past history.

Nicely done. We will have to get together once you get back up Itasca way. My '89 PC is waiting for the snow to melt.

Thanks, that sounds like a good plan.....Some nice riding country there too, once the snow melts. I have a friend here who just sold her two '89's....

Please bear with me if you can.

The best ride reports at those that someone takes the time to post for others to see.

Good job & enjoying it
