Day 8 Continued-

Doing it old school. Yeah, I finally started using GPS on the TG a few years ago...but on the Sporty and the Softail it is still done the old way. lol








Ok, this way looks like more fun!








Pulled over for a battery change, and to let the slow-pokes get way ahead of me so I can proceed at my preferred pace.









Back rolling...








...and thoroughly enjoying it...









...but all good roads eventually come to an end.









Time to head back to camp. We had a bit of a hold up at some road construction near Hill City...15-20 minutes...








...but soon we are back rolling.









At 60, I've tried numerous times to figure out what the allure of the open road is, especially curving ones...








...I've not figured it out, but it has been in my blood for over half a century, and it does not get old! I'm just happy Mary likes it almost as much as I do.





Day 8 will be concluded soon.

Kevin

It is a unique and beautiful place. I have ridden through the area twice. Seeing your pics stirs memories and lets me know I must return!

Great write up. I wish I had the presence of mind to document the great rides. I know it must take a LOT of time. Thanks!
