My buddy was going to use my V-rod and go with... cancelled out at the last minute... so I took the FLSTFB out on my own!
I will take you on my recent 1486 mile road trip and the parking lot grilling that had the guests out of their rooms and speaking with a strange guy drinking Coors light and grilling in the parking lot in front of his room at 9 pm.
The wife went to Moab, UT with her girl friends for the weekend starting Friday, I had just got back from the Mining Engineering conference where I was presenting my paper on orphan mine water reclamation. She asked what I was planning, I had a couple hundred in my pocket and told her I was going to load the motorbike up with some stuff and head out on a road trip. And so the 1486 mile odyssey started.
I left Grand Junction Colorado at 12 noon on Friday and headed east. I decided I did not want a lot of high speed super slab time, I wanted the older Route 66 experience for this ride, so the back roads and by-ways would be the travel lanes of choice.
Also made a deal with myself that I would eat a private establishments, no fast food chains. Since lunch on the road is required when you are planning 10 hours in the saddle.
First place a small barbeque joint in Gunnison Colorado..... excellent food and a wonderful owner, she kept wanting to give me more food..
After lunch and some fuel it was on the road again!!!!!! Came across this art deco era sign that I am sure is an original Holiday Inn sign... for those that remember the green center striped towel of that era.
