Last week's ride

Post  Earache on Mon May 15, 2017 11:18 pm

A few piccies of my ride in Utah a couple of weeks ago with my friend, Neil (Beta 390-something).
Did a 200 mile loop one day and my ass is still sore.

Loading up the bikes at my house. Weather is a bit different here at 10,000' than it is in Utah....

Saddled up and off for an afternoon cruise. Passed a few holes in the ground...

Fairly barren out here and not a lot going on. But the scenery is hard to beat.....

I've never been to Mars, of course, but I'll bet riding there isn't a whole lot different than here. Shit loads of rocks, deep sand and cliffs....

Once we were down in the canyon, the trail followed the river for a bit....

It'd be fairly easy to be blasting along and fall over a cliff into a hole if you weren't paying attention to what you were doing.......

Back home now and waiting for the snow to clear on the mountain passes. Should be good to go in another couple of weeks - if it doesn't snow any more. I'll post pics from those rides as well.

Until then, take care all...........
