  1. Yeah, no one likes Bean.
  2. There's always room for : Some sight-seeing on the way to the party: The dugway Looking out over the Valley of the Gods Day 1 on the BDR: Starting to get a little muddy Guy in Telluride said that Ophir would be easy, except for one little part: had to be talking about this one. Road was paved with rocks the size of softballs. No one died.
  3. Just to generate some interest, i'll start off with some pics from Bean:

    2011 Pacific Northwest Trip

    Our yearly trips generally take place first couple weeks of June, due to schedules. I do know that the dates Bryan gives probably work out better. We just try and stay away from crowds.

    Mexico - 2013

  6. In 2006, my brother got me interested in touring by motorcycle. I've been obsessive about it ever since. Now, I have ridden motorcycles for almost 42 years. But, until he said let's go ride around Yellowstone, I had never thought about travelling by bike. In 2007, I met his friend from Tennessee - Jim Bean (goes by Frijole on several forums. you can guess why). Jim joined our merry band of bike travelers, often instigating the trip by suggesting a destination or three. Fast forward to 2011 and the three of us, plus two other vagabonds we adopted over the years (crazy stories behind each of those. Alaska was at fault), thought we would spend two weeks on the west side of the country. I wanted to hit up most of the great roads in Calif, plus see the Oregon Coast, Idaho, and on and on. Jim is the group photog. Mostly because I rarely see anyone take better pics than he can. We can stand side by side and take pics of the same subject and mine will look like crap, and his could sell for $$$. He also started, with our first trip, producing videos to remember them by. At first, they were slide shows to music, then gopro footage was added. The man is an artist. Here is a link to said 2011 trip. It may affect me more than it will you, because I did that trip. But, it is a great video anyways.
  7. Damn fine video!! One of my favorite areas ,once having discovered Hwy 12 and 24!

    Bought used in 2010 and haven't regretted it for a minute. Took it on White Rim Trail (not sure what I was thinking) as my first off road experience since being a kid. This is my go-to, long mileage bike. Aftermarket Corbin allows me to easily do 700-900 mile days.
