New rear "shoe" for upcoming trip

Put a new Bridgestone "up front" a few weeks ago. Rear Alpin had 13,877 miles and still has some good tread but we leave for Banff Alberta a week from this coming Thursday and that could easily turn into a 6,000 + mile trip and I don't usually get 20,000 miles out of an Alpin. New shoe time

Shhhhhh.... she's napping!

Banff is beautiful! Wish I was going with you...

Earthquakes in Yellowstone today... hope you don't have to ride through volcanic ash on the way north!

Enjoy.

Wife is riding with me going. Little over 1,800 miles up there. Should make 150-200 Thursday evening after work and the remainder has to happen in 3 days. She should be ok. 4 nights camping in Johnstone Canyon CG again ( I did this trip solo last year), then 1 night in Whistler CG in Jasper... then I drop her off in Spokane, Washington to fly home. I get another week before I have to be home. Hope to make the big circle around Mt Ranier

Sounds like a fun trip. Don't be like Duckster and run off into the corn patch.

An Old Irish Blessing

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.




GL1800...that's how I roll!

No need to turn around just because the road runs into a cornfield, but that last video didn't show the river that road ran into!
