Home safe and sound.   And for the record, I did sit on a motorcycle this weekend.

Traffic was hell.  We got home at midnight.  The boys got a final ride in from Torrey to the 15 freeway.  Josh'es permit doesn't allow him to ride the freeways until he is 21.

Any way, great week end.  Really good seeing you all.

We had a commitment on Thursday, so we didn't leave for Torrey until Friday.  And since it's Colorado (and Utah), the weather forecast from just 24 hours ago proved a waste of time.  A couple of hours of heavy-to-torrential rain greeted us from Grand Junction, CO to Green River, UT.  Normally it would take 90 minutes to go those 100 miles, but with 18-wheeler spray and kamikaze drivers, well, discretion ya know. Then when that stopped, up came the wind.  The BLOODY wind!  Hit me in the side of the helmet so hard that even with my super-tight Shoei fit, it was closing my left eye.  By the time we got to Capitol Reef, we were beat.  And it showed.  I was missing my apexes on pretty much every turn, so we stopped, took a break and regrouped just 20 miles from our destination.  Still we got into Torrey around 2PM, spent time with friends chatting and getting caught up, enjoyed some fine meals, a couple of pretty cold rides on Sat and Sun, and left for home today, Monday.  

 

Nice weather and light winds on the way home.  Back in beautiful Montrose, CO, after just 4 hours, rolling in at 2PM.  That gave us enough time for lunch, unpacking, clean up, and then this evening's dance class.  Joints are probably going to be a bit creaky(er) tomorrow (almost 70), but that's the way it goes.  A great time, even if we spent a couple of hours wondering what the hell we had gotten ourselves into back on Friday morning.  But that's part of what makes great rides and great adventures.  That, and great friends.

 

Can't wait for Fall.
