    Bravo Missy! I miss taking moto trips. But the road will always be there when my free time becomes my own again.

    I might even consider motocamping...especially if there is a hotel room thrown in the middle somewhere.

    Charlie and I did about 400 miles that day, with the stint on 191 being the last part of it ... so nothing like doing technical twisties for nearly 70 miles after already riding 330 miles ... while the girl's bikes were getting washed, Charlie and I were doing 191 in the rain .. oh yay us lol

    Gives you something (more) to whine about.

    I never thought I would enjoy it but with the right equipment...

    Of course, getting to the right equipment means spending just as much as the hotel rate.

    I do enjoy it, though. I am REALLY looking forward to Cam getting his permit and doing some overnight or weekend motocamps with them both and hubby if he wants to truck to Mt Lemmon or such. He can get his permit in April.

    I see an R3 in my granddaughter's future. Got to see if they make a Givi rack for the R3 ...
    The best thing you can buy for your motorcycle is gas.

    So ... next time we trailer to Springerville. That way Cam doesn't have to do endurance riding on the KLR Then we can do the loop one day clockwise and one day counter clockwise. A nice four day weekend with two travel days.

    Nice pics, Missy! Cam on a 250? That should be good.
