Wife and I rode about 400 miles today, working on the TOH Ride. Left Austin at 10 this morning, headed North West to Appleton, then North east to Belgrade, before ending in Little Falls! All back roads. I am pulling the trailer, and still getting 40 mph!! Tomorrow we are heading straight North to Bemidji before going to Duluth. Will be staying in Duluth until Friday, when head South to Austin!!

Now, that's what I'm talking about! Sounds like a fun ride and interesting to see where you're riding. Thanks for sharing.

We went on a 180 mile round trip north of Del Rio, TX this morning and the most exciting thing about the whole trip was stopping for gas. The 1st pic is the wife. The second pic is the kids.

got back from hebron, ky. thursday evening. 1207 miles round trip. the ride thru the moutains was everything I hoped it would be. little bit of rain on the way back, but it was light and short lived. 11 hours in the saddle caused some monkey butt, but the overall ride was easy and a lot of fun. ironhorse purred all the way there and back. planning on doing it again in august.

Rode the scooter to work, my mobile office as I ended up at Brady's for coffee, some planning time, phone calls and even a visit on the GWOF. Something about being on 2 wheels that makes me happy as I am happy today. The scooter is my Checker Cab, a work horse and tough as nails build and dependability. Ought to get a fender sticker; My other bike is a Scooter. :popcorn:

WingRat call to let me know that they were letting traffic through the Oso Slide area and if I want to ride down and have a look. Met and rode down Hwy 9 to Sedro Wooley then Hwy 20ty east to Rockport for lunch then 530 south through Darrington to the slide area. Had to wait for the Pilot Car to escort us through the slide area. No stopping for pictures. Imagine riding a road with mud walls up to 20ft high that were full of rocks, logs, parts of houses all kinds of debris. When we got to Arlington we took hwy 9 north through Big Lake, Clear Lake, Sedro Wooley and home.

That was quite a ride and no, can't imagine riding that stretch on a regular basis. But, what a beautiful area to ride in.
