Great report and amazing photos, thanks for taking us along!

With the single digit temps were currently enjoying in the Central Oregon area the warmth of NV and AZ sound pretty enticing right now.

Yeah, it's really not fair of them to do this to us, is it?
Freezing rain in the Hood this morning.

I remember staying at the pyramid shaped Luxor in 2003, and it was snowing HUGE snowflakes on that steep sloping glass. Just rain and 50 degrees 12-something floors lower, at street level.

Woke up this morning and it's 5 degrees so I thought I'd get a bit of sunshine through your RR, but sadly, you've decided to rejoin us here in the gloom of PNW winter. Anyway welcome home and thanks for the pictures it was most refreshing.

I must admit living in the PNW has been such a joy and still is, but it seems the older I get the more these winters hurt. I use to ski, snowmobile and all the other fun stuff, even worked outside in the harsh environment without complaint for many many years, but....... as one who use to laugh and make fun of those old farts going to Arizona at the first signs of winter, well now I understand.

Again thanks you two always a pleasure to follow along. Hope to see you guys sometime soon.

Thanks for sharing your ride with us. I always enjoy seeing what the two of you are up to and those steep and rocky spots you find. Thanks for the flowers you had to work hard to find them.

Try to stay warm now that you are back home.

Thanks!

Thanks again for posting up! I would have written that area off as useless but you've showed us that there are lots of riding opportunities near Las Vegas. dd

Most excellent adventure.
Nice job of documenting your ride yet not giving it all away to everyone in the world.
Brings back memories in the Vegas area.

All routes were planned using Nev & Arizona Benchmark Maps. This was an exploratory trip, we hope to go back and ride more, lots more out there!

Thank you

Everyone for your words of encouragement, we normally have more time to plan, as well as more time to spend while on our annual winter trip,but it was nice to get away and very hard to come back to the dreary weather.

But then again while you guys are playing your providing visions of happier times ahead. So thank's for bringing us (me) along.

I'm not sure you guys want to come back up here just yet. It's cooold and gray here. This must be payback for my last winter excursion to sunny Mexico.



Fixed
I'm a little disappointed we didn't get a from you! It was very hard to come home!
We Love you as well and have enjoyed living vicariously through your adventures. Looking forward to your Death Valley RR.

Well, I guess I missed my opportunity on the as I was more in line of envy, that and I am slipping into an apathetic state due to the weather of late. This is the first actual winter I've stayed home for in a couple of years now You two brought some sunshine into my life and a smile on my face via internet, thanks for the ride guys.

I do Liv2rydktms, I wish KTM had made a comparable replacement for the LC4-640, but alas they did not, I do miss my KTM suspension, however the DRZ is a good bike.

Now I know why they call you Effensteve, Mr. smarty pants!

Soon you will have all your bikes serviced, and we will be the envious ones. Glad the RR lifted your spirits!
