That's an awesome video JT, thanks for sharing that. I hope everyone is doing as awesome and happy as I am! I'm still working here in the tropics in Turks & Caicos Islands, but I head home on Saturday. I'll be happy to be home, I have been home for 10 hours in the last five weeks! Hopefully some sunny days too so we can get some rides in.
Thanks Al ,
I'd love to have one of them Go Pro cameras for my motorcycle so I can record some rides of my own.
Wow , 10 hours in 5 weeks ? Doesn't your sweetheart get lonely ? I'd miss my wife so much if I were gone that long.
Hope the sun is shinning bright and it's nice warm weather when you return so you can go for a well deserved putt.
Blessing my friend.
The first pictures in this video are of the Bighorn Canyon , I had the pleasure of riding with Phil and Stacy Tolliver ( and their friends ) and this is one of the places I took them. Sadly , it cost a couple dollars to get into the Bighorn Canyon ( I believe it's under $5.00 a person ) and some of Phil's friends didn't want to pay the fee and left , so they missed these views. I was willing to pay the fee for them , but they declined .
The second half of the video is on top of the Bighorn Mountains and also inside the Elk View Lodge on top of the mountain , I also took Phil and Stacy there.
This is part of the old Wagon Train road ( Red Grade Rd. ) over the Bighorn Mountain I was telling you about . This guy drives about half way up Red Grade Rd to Park Reservoir on the Bighorn mountain. The video isn't the whole drive from the start of Red Grade to Park Reservoir , it's a lot longer than a 6.32 minute drive. It takes a few hours to get all the way across. But it gives you an idea of what it's like.
Good morning everyone ,
We had a nice Tuesday night ride with the CMA last night and they also did a bike blessing and blessed my bike.
We rode from Sheridan, WY to Buffalo , WY for supper at The Cantina ( food was awesome ) , had fellowship and then rode back to Sheridan.
I got your Prayerbiker cards and was able to hand some out last night. There seemed to be some interest in the site , so we'll see what happens. I will continue passing them out.
Well, I got back on the bike for the first time since the accident. No fear, just wasn't sure the knee would be able to handle it. It did ok. On Saturday I went to test drive a couple of choices for a replacement for the Super T. Liked them both, but the knee comfort won out. One had mid controls and it just hurt the knee too much after riding it for 20 minutes. The other has forward controls and is much easier on the knees. So that's what I went with. Here it is... my Victory Highball.
Awesome LW ,
Hope your new Victory gives you hundreds of hours of fun riding , enjoy.
We got 8 inches of snow over night , but this afternoon it's been warm enough to melt a lot of it. Should be gone by the weekend.
Saturday May 4th my wife and I along with friends will be joining our local CMA ( Cross Road Riders ) for the Run for the Son. Should be a great time.
You know I LOVE Gadgets and Gizmo’s. Here’s a Great Christmas Gift / Stocking Stuffer for the Motorcyclist in your life. It’s called “The Moto Hanger”. I can’t count the number of time I wish I had a place to put my helmet when we stop to eat. ( will also post this in my gadgets and gizmos section )
That looks very handy. I really never thought about using the handheld gps but that's a nice idea.
Your setup wouldn't work for me, though, for I use a tankbag almost constantly and it would block it. I usa a ramline mounting system that uses ball and socket design to manipulate the location of the device.
My wife and I use our Handheld's mostly for playing the Geocache game. We love using the motorcycle to go Geocaching. But we've also used it to get us where we're going. If we're traveling we put the coordinates of all the places we plan on visiting into the Garmin etrex Venture and it's always taken us exactly where we want to go.
I had a tank bag on one of my bikes but didn't care of it. I am going to get the Top Case and panniers for my new Yamaha Super Tenere through.
Have fun and ride safe Brother.
Howdy Folks ,
Today I got my second accessory for my YST. ( my first was a battery pigtail ).
I purchased a Garmin Rail Mount ( Handlebar Mount ) for my Garmin eTrex Venture HC handheld GPS. Although I don’t have it plugged into the 12v outlet right now , these pictures will give you an idea of how it looks all mounted up.
