May See You A Long The Way!

We are going to start this ride on July 30th! We are going to start in Anteleope Wells to get the heat out of the way early in the trip. I to am going to try to do a live ride report as long as cell phone and Intenet hot spots permit. As I said we are leaving for New Mexico on July 30th. That's approx 1300 miles there, then around 2700 up the divide and then about 1500 back home from Montana. I'm sure I won't have a butt left by the time I get home. I can't think of a better way to loose it though!

Have an awesome trip and keep the rubber down! Hope to see you along the way. When you see us you will know, cause I will be traveling with a gaint. He's 6' 8" or 5' 20" as he puts it. The group of guys I'm going with are all from Iowa, but I don't hold that against them. Anyway hope to meet up with you!

Hope to see you along the way but you might want to check on the NM section as of yesterday a lot of it was closed due to fires. If they still are when we get there were going to do the CO section of the TAT.

Picked this up today for the way up there don't have time to ride up like I did last time.

We made it to Butte MT from Houston Tx in 28 hours. Putting the bikes in a u-haul made it's easy but were off to get dinner, beer and then some sleep.
