Day #23 cont....

Fun ride through Yellowstone except when the traffic log jams or when there is road work and it becomes 1 lane only. But the views and peaceful scenery hit you on every turn. I just love being in the wilderness.

Mama got a little artsy fartsy on the back:



We get to the mammoth springs lodge and our room has a private jacuzzi so I'm stoked to be able to soak the bones a bit.

We got here early so not much to do but go check out the hot springs which are similar to the ones by the Old Faithful Inn but they are a different temp and different minerals/bacteria.

Pretty cool cascading event with white milky pools:



Another one:



It was nice being at the last few destinations early so we had time to relax and get some down time. I'm not a huge fan of having reservations on motorcycle trips since so many things can change your course/time frame.

Whether it be break downs, meeting cool people you want to go somewhere else with, you partied too hard and shouldn't be riding a motorcycle since you'd still blow a DUI etc.... Having non stop reservations makes it much more stressful as you HAVE to be at the next destination so you can make the next days reservation etc... etc...

After the next stop we are reservation free minus one night at the Buffalo Chip. Can't wait! Freedom!!

Just an FYI.... There is going to be a LOOONG delay on updates to this ride report as I am leaving for a 33 day/9000 mile ride in Africa in a couple days.

I'll finish it up when I get back on Nov 14th. I'll also do a ride report on the Africa trip.

Yeah I was following him too as I'm a lifelong surfer and have been all over the world chasing waves. That board on the back looks like a nightmare waiting to happen. One fall to the left and sianara skegs and the amount of fiberglass damage might be un-fixable.

I'll keep an eye out for him!

Whew!!!

Made it back from Africa and finally got my life back in order.

I'll get back to updating this ride report and then I'll start the ride report for mennleo's and my 9,000 mile/35 day ride through 9 countries in Southern Africa!

What a blast that was!!!



Here's a hint on how that trip went:

FINALLY getting around to the Africa report and one day I'll get this ride report done too as there is lots of naked Sturgis women/pics and other crazy stuff that happened (fights etc...)

Here is the Africa link:
