it was great, we still don't know what bit her, but it left behind a nice stinger. We picked up some bendriol in boulder.

We were sitting here a couple of hours later, watching the sun set.




And she said OH, I just realized I took my pants off in the middle of the road.

Thrusday woke up to 41 degrees. First morning we sorta slept in.

We rolled out packed up, got some breakfast. Watched one of the locals scrounge for food while we ate.

She didn't really look homeless, but who knows.









All week my side bag has been hard to get on and off , this morning it poped on just like it should.

I went to put robins bag on, thinking, now this ones not gonna go on good. As I pushed it on, I pushed the old purple people eater right over on it's side.


Now if anybody else had done that i'd been right there taking a picture, I'm afraid I didn't think of the camera till after robin picked it up.


ok I helped alittle.


Last night while we were talking about staying in boulder, I was thinking I could roll out while she slept. Ride the devils backbone & the burr trail. But really I think we were close to the border line of packing to much into the week. Maybe a short loop.

We pulled on our longjohns, zipped our liners in. I rode up to bricknell while robin took a quick nap.

We didn't stay long at capital reef national park, we got our stamp, talked to a couple of other beemer riders, took our liners out. And away we went.

time for alittle break,



robins clawing at her inside jacket pocket fussing (that's a polite word for cussing)

one of the last things she said was, shit I guess my malboros blew out.

I reached over and squeezed her liner on the back of the bike and said check here.

now shes a happy camper

well we got to monument valley as they were closing, it was a Navajo park not a national park, so our pass won't work. Also they'res a 17 mile road tru the monuments, but they won't let motorcycles or rv's go around it.

Come on, if you can drive a mini van tru there, I can ride the old airhead tru there.




losts a long straights after this

We looked for the place forest gump stopped running, but we never found it.

We made it to keynote, supper at the blue coffee pot, & decided to roll onto tuba city.

Which after the sun dropped down. We took a break went to put our liners back in. No liners well remember that little smoke break this morning, apparently neither one of us refastened cargo net till we got to hanksville.

a man can't have nutn


well, I guess i'd rather lose the liner than the jacket


anybody know anyone who wants to sell a xxl liner for a rainier jacket or L monarch

let me know
