bolt with a new 49 cent one from Napa Auto Parts in Moab).

The open road does strange things, Harleyboy's new look.

scrc
Okay maybe not the price at this one.
last station for 100 miles. $5.49? Talk about gouging.

scrc
Just when you think you are getting somewhere, you're nowhere.

Because the Grand Canyon was closed and we rode 4 days to get here
we decided to take the hawgs on the mule path and see the damn Canyon anyway :)

"Free range" beef.

scrc
36 miles on a gravel path will make a mess of your bike
(now we have to go 36 miles back).

scrc
...not to mention it will wear you out.
It's like riding on a flat tire for 72 miles.

scrc
Digg's thinking "did we really just do this?"
