    Very nice 👍. You got the anniversary model and youíre using it.
     
    I love riding through the desert. Where Iím from we have loads of trees, the desert is beautiful. Especially southern Utah.

    Utah was a revelation. Can't wait to go back. The 191 from Vernal to Rock Springs WY was one of the rides of my life.

    I entered Utah at Moab then headed to Bryce and Zion. I took rts 24 to 12 to 89 to 9 or thereabouts. I was stunned at the beauty. It took a few days and I had some hiking to do but I never wanted to leave southern Utah. I had the roads to myself, too.

    Just pm me when the time comes. Iíll give you greater detail.
    I stopped at this place for a cup of coffee. I believe itís on Rt 12. Itís in the middle of nowhere. Just me and the owner. It was the nicest coffee house Iíve ever been in. Highly recommend.

    Would love to learn to ride a dirt bike. No garage room at the moment but someday!
