Motorcycle

Over the past few months I have made a few comments about our motorcycle so I thought I should post some shots of it. Please excuse the messy garage, cleaning it is one of many projects on the never ending list of things to do. To me one of our most memorable trips was when we went to Jackson Hole Wyoming with another couple, about a 2,000 mile round trip, about, six days. On that trip we went through Yellowstone National Park. If you have ever been to Yellowstone you know that the animals roam free, which when you are in a car is interesting enough, but when you are on a motorcycle, stuck in a traffic jam, and you have Buffalo walking along side the road about three feet from you and they turn that massive head and look at you, you can't help wondering what they are thinking. We are hoping to go on a nice long trip this coming year, maybe down through the Redwoods, if time permitted we would love to go to Brice and Zion, but we will have to see what the next year brings. Hope you enjoy the shots and hope you have a nice day.

Very neat bike, Lloyd. The garage doesn't look too messy to me, well, maybe just a tad ;).

Never (yet) been to Yellowstone, but since I don't think I'd enjoy having a massive buffalo head looking at me from just three feet away, I think ours will most certainly be a car tour.

Any monkeys on the loose there? I still remember what those cute little spider monkeys did to our car when we visited the African Lion Safari in Hamilton, Ontario, back in the '90s... Oh, and the giraffes, too, lovely windshield washing technique they use... A nice day to you, and the sweet doggies, too! :)

Lloyd, nice bike, if ever in Bend be sure to stop here at the motel, and the Harley Place is right behind us. Nice shop.....
Yeh i can't imagine riding a bike thru Yellowstone, were the buffalo roam. Have you ever stopped at the National Bison Range? We did that trip last yr.
If you never been to Zion it is one of my favorite places.

Great shots. So does Ranger have a side car that he can ride in or does he keep watch at the house with friends?

I haven't been to Yellowstone or Brice, but I have been to Zion and I recommend that you go, it's spectacular! I was blown away by the wonderful scenery, I will definitely be visiting again when I am in that part of the USA.
BTW, does Ranger fit on the pillion of the bike?
