I sitting here waiting on my wife to get home from work so we can cover a few miles this evening to shorten our ride tomorrow to get out of Texas.

The bike is serviced and packed and just sitting there waiting. Even though it's pretty hot this afternoon, I don't care, I just want to get going. We're headed for Ouray where we will stay several days and do day rides from there.

I'll post our routes and pictures when I return so those of you that want can see our trip.

I'm envious Robert! Ride safe. Nothing like the anticipation of an upcoming ride with your sweetie strapped on the back. We're there in spirit.

Hey, that worked. Thanks, Mark for the tip. I'll have to remember that for future use.

We left home around 5:30 PM and rode 160 miles to Vernon, TX and retired for the night. It's 6:00AM now. I'll go out for a 4 mile run (have to burn the extra vacation calories) and then we'll head out for Las Vegas, NM for tonight. I'll try to take several pictures and post them on my website when we return.

I'll make sure to post to let everyone whose is interested know of my trip report.

Thanks for all the well wishes, guys.

Well, here we are in Las Vegas, NM. It was a long hot ride today. The temp was in the upper 90's most of the way here. About 20 miles before Las Vegas, after we ascended the escarpment, the temp dropped to 82 which was nice.

We are at the Days Inn and walked across the street for dinner. A futile attempt at quesadillas. It was passable however, so we survived. Being from Texas, we have to have a Tex-Mex fix at least every other day.:)

Tomorrow will have some nice scenery. We'll go through Taos and then up to Pagosa Springs, over to Durango and then up to Ouray for 5 days.

I'll keep you posted.

robert, A suggestion if I may? If you have time squeeze in a trip to Mesa Verde Nat Park. Do a web search to check it out to see if it interests you or your wife. I know we enjoyed it. Great Scenery & History.

Robert, check out the North Rim of Black Canyon near Gunnison. I rode through there the first week of May and had snow most of the way. The windshield on my 08 Goldwing was iced over by the time I got down off the rim. It was still a fantastic ride.

Lived a few years in Briar just North of Azle on FM730.
