Yeah, I stole this from ADV, but I like the folks here and what prospective they might have with a camera..

So, what cool pics did you take this week???

To celebrate my new toy, and the 2200 miles of rain free riding to get it home...

I'm admitting a slight cheat here.. I took the following photos a touch over a week ago.
First.. Our very own Sleddog's Long Distance Goldwing in full rally mode.. I have to give him props since he gave me some excellent info on my ride back this last weekend.. The man knows the roads..



And a couple more from the rally....

Flying Breadpan.. The sidecar was fabricated out of breadpan aluminum from a bread factory..



And the best looking KLR at the Bonzia Rally??

Lol! Looks like your giving the Orkin man a run for his money! :)

Nothing cool to take pics of here, but I'll keep my eyes peeled!

Cap'n V, Oldstove, SLO-KLR and Red Burrito, standing on a Musselman Bridge; I was too scared to venture out.



Long Canyon; we'll be down on that road in a bit...



And almost home...

I think the rules are no posts without a picture.....

This is one order of fries & 1/2 of a hamburger (the other 1/2 is across the table in front of my wife) Bob's Bar in Martinsburg, NE



This weekend is going to be nice. I have mapped a 760 mile Trans South Dakota trail 95% on Gravel. It follows along the James & Missouri Rivers before heading across the National Grasslands, where there's mucho ponds filled with Bass & Bull Bluegills, just waiting for someone to toss them a Pheasant Tail Nymph! The route will head back south skirting along the Southern Badlands, finally ending in Southern Black Hills. I'm going to ride & camp along a segment of it. Hopefully I'll get some cool pics along the way to post to this thread!

Nice Post Paper

Ok Dan, here it is.

The ride was great! Better than expected. I took off about 2:00 PM Friday afternoon & rode the first 1/2 of a gravel road route that ended in Pierre, SD. (pronounced Peer)

The Bike loaded & ready to head out.



Shortly after arriving on the james River Gravel, I ran into a Grandfather & his Granddaughter fishing the flooded waters.



Shelby with her catch



Stone Church along the James



Livestock on the open Range



Camp near Ft Randall



I like Murals so never pass up an opportunity



Some of the roads are long & straight



A few more on the next post

The 1806 road commemorates Lewis & Clark's journey South after exploring the Pacific Northwest.



It's hard to believe this was in use a year before I got out of High School.



This was a house on the National Grasslands. Land that was Homesteaded, then given back to the Government because it was too hard to farm. Someone had money to build a house like this.



It will be fun to continue the route West across the Prairie, Badlands & finally the Black Hills.

As always, the photos are excellent, Jack!!

My week was less eventfull.. First, we had a nasty storm and the tree across the street blew down.. No damage, but it sounded like a shotgun!!



And I went to Peoria for a windshield for my GS and I managed to leave my Blackberry at the dealership that I met the guy at.. :( They're mailing it to me, though...:49:

Got a few Affair with Water Grand tour photos.. One was a town in IL that I'd never heard of..

Where is this road?
Just outside of Guelph..

:character00271:

Just kidding.. It's East of Lewiston, Idaho on highway 12, which takes you to the Lolo Pass.. I went through there to bring my bike home a couple weeks ago.

I really do like Guelph, though.. :) The locals always found it funny that I actually knew how to pronounce the name.. Gwelf..

Hey Paper,

You had me all excited. Did you live in Guelph at one time?
No.. Been through there on vacation a few times while wandering ON, and I'd been there a bunch of times with a former employer, setting up equipment at a steel shop..
Put it this way, the first time I went through there, there wasn't a bypass..:)

Just a really nice smaller city..

And because Jack said I can't post here without tossing a photo up..
