few pics from summer trip


started off here in deming nm, made it to durango colorado the first night, weather was good until i hit the colorado border then it was pissy rain. next morning i got up and rode 550 over to ouray this pic was taken up at molas pass.


next day was from silverton co to cushing iowa where i stayed with a buddy then over to moiline illinois to my sisters then to eagle river wisconsin to my uncles house. this is a picture i took of his pond from my canoe.


while i was there i changed out my tires that i had previously shipped up there. this is all i could find to use to change the front tire, worked like a charm


i left my uncles house and headed north to gods country, unfortunately had to ride through this for a few hundred miles and my speedo cable wore out.


on the way back down i stopped at agate falls, was a little chilly to take a swim but about halfway up these falls thereis a shelf with about a 6 foot deep hole you can jump in.

had to rush back home because of an emergency so i rode to my sisters house the first day 400 miles the next day i rode 800 miles and the final day was 600 miles. this was the view i got in new mexico. could be a screen saver.
