Hey Rudi

Yeah...it's only when it's all lumped together into one lot that it shows all the places and things seen through the years.
There's at least as many "other" trips again, usually by car/ camper etc.
and lots of shorter day-trips of some sort or another where no pic was ever taken.

Yo, a bagfull of memories in that lot here...

Default 2011...Western US

September

Jimbo had sweet-talked us into another 3 weeks, this time for more dirt, more out of the way places, brilliant weather, lots of laughs, lots of backroads, some wild'n whacky places and some smooth cruising wrapped in the STUMPING!! ~7000km loop.


As all good things...it started with a BANG.
Of Jimbo's brandnew TKC80 rear hoop, that is.





We skimmed the South Oregon border through the Klamath Mtns






Trusted some shady characters






Checked out the "Painted Hills" of John Day Fossil Beds








Cruised one of the endless South Fork, or was it a North Fork?, roads, this one in the Malheur National Forest





Had the most bizarre overnight stay EVER...at the (now in receivership) BearCat lodge in Seneca





The "Little Dragon" produced tears of joy ...and one HELL of a DR650 v. KLR650 paint-swapper.





Frequented classy neighbourhoods




Met Wyatt Earp in the tiny hamlet of Ola, loaded 6-shooter in the waitband, Stetson and all.

Folks enjoying Hot Springs at the side of the road





From Idaho, into Montana and quickly through Yellowstone into Wyoming
....ohhh man, LOVE that place!

Jackson Lake, Grand Tetons N.P. in the late afternoon





The backroads into Capitol Reef N.P....bloody speechless, what nature can come up with.












Bryce Canyon




...and the red roads of Zion N.P.





No ride around here without some mystery









Fixed this 'n that





Back into California, Bear Gully and Sonora Pass, Ebbett's Pass....and into the Sierra Nevada proper.










Lost our hearts at Lassen Volcanic Park






Had enough bends??
For a while!! Wore the glove to shreds, bugga!







For another tour-de-force ride report and around 800 pics (oh yeah, it's a blockbuster) :

T'was a bloody good day!
