After Ya'll left Torrey it was a little lonely...

But I had plans...I had to take Louise to the airport in Salt Lake......then meet up with Chris Olson and FLyingGreg in the metropolis of Fairview.....On to Moab and Arches N.P.

 

 

Chris brought his new GT

The Arches were cool....

We didn't have any specific plans so I had to think about it....

Then I remember something about a road in Colorado...141...

 

The road to 141 wasn't too bad either...no Mrs. Whip this time...I had to do a Foerster and takem while riding...later on this would prove to be fatal for the camera...

as it went flying off my bike at about 80mph....Greg went back to get it I didn't notice...my hat did the same thing on the way to Durango between Silverton and Ouray...Chris stopped to get it that time.....It's great to have friends to look after ya......A great time was had by all.....I don't I'll ever forget.............

I think you have now officially dropped and broken more things from a moving vehicle than anybody else I know! Nice pics until the fateful mile though.

All in all, it was a fabulous way to extend Torrey with super trip with great roads, great motorcycles and great friends.

Every picture I scrolled through I was saying "oh my gawd", then then next was "OH my GAWD!" and then the next was "OH MY GAWD!!"!. These are postcard quality!! I got to share these with my 10 year old daughter and she said "Oh my Gawd!! When are we leaving?". You have captured what motorcycling is all about!!

 

Thanks so much for sharing. Did I already say those are some great pics? smile.gifthumbsup.gifclap.gifwave.gif

Whip, et al, great shots. Hope to get some o' my own when we head to Denver (and hopefully Gunney) next month. Whip, I was checking out your shots on your Smugmug page. GREAT stuff! Your shots of Durango have pretty much made that town a must-see on our trip. Jeez, when you can hold onto the camera, you get some really nice shots! wink.gif

(Truth be told, that's why I've always been hesitant to do shots on the run myself. I'm too cheap to risk having to buy another camera. I've already had a cell phone go bouncy bouncy at 70MPH. blush.gif)

Thanks for posting.

These pics are a reminder of WHY we ride.

 

Thanks for posting!

P.S. We did Quray and Telluride and CO 145 on the way TO Torrey. I'm surprised more folks didn't recognize the grins on our faces.

So my 14 year old daughter wants to know: if he peed there, would it end up in both oceans?

 

Can't believe I was there a year ago already. Eatin' my heart out since I couldn't make it this year! I love riding with Greg, too. That pic was hard to look at...
