I agree, but there's no way to format text with the images in this forum if the images are uploaded here.  :dunno

Well, that depends. Looks like about 250 characters including spaces will work for me.

I'll post and resurrect this fine thread of the culprits/outlaws that made this ride! First of all these are great photos and interesting places to visit, many of which I have journeyed to aboard various BMW's, so I can relate. But, I am somewhat jealous as I would have liked to be along for the ride. However, I feel as if I were sort of along due to the photos and tales posted here by Johnny. Johnny extended an invite to Motobrickers but I didn't view it, otherwise I would have joined in for a day or two as the bunch were in my neck of the woods for awhile.

That's too bad that we missed out on meeting up with you when we went through Western Colorado headed to Utah. You sure have awesome roads and scenery out there. Maybe you should start a K-Mountain Man Redevous in Colorado as an.annual meet! I would ride up for that.

the way i see it... if you wanna ride on f-ed up tiors... do it solo... if you are gonna ride as part of a group... you oughtta ride on good tiors so the others donts have to call for medivac when you cartwheel off... period...

I suppose you're right, but I regret you giving me shit for that on the ride. I left Olympia with one-month-old Shinko 230's that had 3k miles on them. All that heavily loaded hauling ass on the UT hot-skillet super-slab because someone was in a hurry wore my tires and morale down pretty fast. In the end it was one bike's fuel injection problem that lost us a day, and another bike's fried stator that lost us a second day.  Ultimately my tires rolled all the way back to Olympia without issue or visible chords. In fact, now that I think of it, I've never had even a flat tire in the 90,000 miles I've ridden the K75.

I think long group rides are tough to pull off. Weekends are easy, but a multi-week Debauchery can't possibly make everybody happy all the time. I didn't recognize that until this ride. I wish I'd know that when we started planning the ride last winter. I said "Glacier" you said "yeah, then Utah" and I said "Invite anybody" which was the effed-up icing on the cake. Every single rider on that trip was awesome  :2thumbup: but as a large group we did not mesh well. Live and learn.

I am firmly convinced that any group ride of more than 2 riders who aren't Hardley Ferguson lifestylers is going to be like herding cats.  Kudos to Johnny for giving it his best shot dealing with a bunch of hot and cranky riders. 

I am pretty sure it would have been a lot better had it not been for the record breaking heat we were riding in.  45C at 11:00 in the morning was not the nicest way to have fun on a bike when you are wearing all your gear.  There was no place to escape it.

The highest I recorded was 117 (47c) which was right at the time where you, then I, decided we need to get air flowing and find shade (something severely lacking out that way - it is very obvious why people die in that area so often from exposure).  I was loving get Tim to take our pictures, but I was dying and had finally hit a wall in my heat tolerance.

 You kids stop it right now!

 I had a great time despite the heat, nearly running out of fuel, and the electrical issues. (my 130K mile VFR had zero issues) Thank you Tim for hanging' with us in the rain waiting for the tow. Thanks also to JO, and Crash for going for help. I know it's what friends do, but it's still much appreciated.

 The whole debacle with sheep herds, and dead-end roads in Utah with Al was pretty hilarious too. You never know what's gonna happen on a motorcycle ride.

 BTW JO the bikes didn't move an inch on the 8 hour bonsai run home in the U-Haul. Just saying'....

 I'd do it all again.
