Thanks, Skidding. It's nice having an extra bike along....especially a dualsport.

A great RR Ratman

I love the loaded V65 Saber...

We had an V45 for a few yrs...

We had been to just about all the places you went to .. So for me it was a great memory lane report

Thanks I totally enjoyed that...

This is excellent!

Sorry I'm so late to the party...With so many wonderful reports, it is easy to miss some of them. This was an excellent read for a relaxing/recuperating Sunday February morning.

You sir, are a genius with your trailer rig with disk brakes. Love your style of working with what you have.

Really enjoyed your prose and pictures. You gave me some wonderful ideas to add to my adventures out west.

Where are you conjuring up for this summer's ride?

Back to the top for others to enjoy.

Thanks and take care.
Dave

Honda's early V4s ore good old work horses. I don't expect to ever get rid of mine.

Thanks so much, aDave. My big ride this summer will be the CDR starting in Antelope Wells. I don't know if I'll take the Honda and tow the DR350...or just ride the DR the whole way.

Thank you for sharing! I may be moving out to Indian Country soon, so your report gets me excited for the experience.

No. Thank you, J.J.

About your move to Indian Country....you couldn't make a better one, ADV Riding wise. I hope to be reading one of your TRs soon.

Thanks, Hobo. The trouble with being in my position is that you are usually old. Being old isn't all bad, but times running out for riding like this.

don't rush retirement.

Sorry my friend, but you're wrong. Retire sooner = more time to ride, or whatever (fill in the blanks). Getting old isn't all that great, but it beats the alternatives.

I'm a year behind on reading ride reports. I just finished this one and wanted to say thanks! I used to live and work in some of the areas you rode through and took pictures of. Made me miss them.

Thanks for reading along, Bullspit. You've lived in some great places.

.. and thought i'd check in and say how impressed i am of your journaling! what a way to "remember that one time..". very cool! keep it up, it's greatly entertaining to read on a day like today. it's was nice to forget about the t.v. when i came across your adventures!

made this mornings drive seem pretty boring!

take care and i look forward to reading more!! (hopefully!)

Finding my RR

Thanks, Arekay34. I see you've only been an ADV member for a few days. I have to ask how did you find my out of the past RR among all the 100s of reports on the ADV site?
