Yep it's 10 Wheels now! (Does anyone know how to edit the title of a thread?). When we planned it we weren't going to get a trailer, but too much gear. Glad we did though, it makes hauling the chair easier, as well as being easier to get on and off than when it was on my bike.

We've been so busy, it's hard to find time to get the photos uploaded to the laptop, let alone to photobucket so we can put them up on the forums. Sometimes it's just easier to put them straight up on Facebook (if we have taken pics with the phone, at least). You can find our Facebook page if you search for "Keepin' It Wheel".
Eventually we will get around to putting up some pics here too though.

So far we've been to Bryce Canyon which was breathtakingly beautiful and we could have spent 2 or 3 days there, then the same thing with Zion National Park, that was stunning too.

Luckily the ride through Death Valley was unforgettable because we didn't take any pictures there :-(

We did get quite a few pics from criss-crossing Yosemite though. We are loving the roads over here!!!



It's our last day in San Francisco today and we will be down around pier 39 again for dinner tonight, then heading up hwy 1 maybe 50/80 miles to find somewhere to camp for the night... If you wanna join us for a feed or ride let us know... We'll be leaving approx. 7.30 tonight.

Well crap. Sorry I missed you guys. I don't get on here often enough.

It was a little surreal to look up while at work today and see you guys cruise by.

Dang, and I wasn't doing much of anything this weekend either.

Awesome!

This is one that I'm going to read a little closer since it's about as unique as you can get. Thanks for sharing.....

So what was the final determination of your problems with the 690 you never updated that part.

Hi dave, bearing flogging around on spline, loctited it in place and seems ok, bearing has a bit of play so might still swap it out before the trip is over

Your July 10th Route (Gillette, WY - Deadwood, SD)

My brother & I rode through SD and into WY through Deadwood and Lead, SD then onto Spearfish and Gillette, WY on the 14A (alternate/scenic) route. It is an amazing road, lots of long sweepers, no tight technical corners, beautiful scenery along a river.

Please take a look at routing that way off the 90 at Spearfish or whatever other route you're taking from Gillette, WY. It may look a little "off the course" but it's worth every single minute.

short video of 14A from my RR: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNzmmKAciCs


and i'm late but subscribed, have a great ride!
