Three Flags Classic - Oldmedic style

Currently sitting in El Paso,TX awaiting registration for this years TFC.

I started a blog a few days ago,, to chronicle the trip for friends and family, feel free to lurk :)

Riding a 2003 Suzuki DL1000, thus far no major problems.

the blog is at: http://oldmedic2012tfc.blogspot.ca

The TFC goes from El Paso through to Nelson, BC.

I participated in the 1982 TFC at the age of 17 and rode my 1981 RD350LC, it was a great trip. So I thought it had been 30 years, time to do it again....

enjoy....OldMedic

Hi Carl,
The ride home was great - my rear tire only lasted to Gunnison, Co (3700 miles on a BT023 Bridgestone), but other than that no problems. If I end up in your area, I'll let you know!!

Thanks,
Jim

Yup got home yesterday. Ride through to Rocky was fabulous, Had never drove that route before. Stayed on that road through Stettler then down to Oyen and east Kindersley/Outlook then down to Regina trying to keep the wind at least at our sides. Got beat up by the wind from Regina to Winnipeg but all ended well.
