My summer vaction

After leaving The Colorado Rally in Durango I went to Denver to visit my sis and bum a bed for the night. I'm now in Billings, Montana. Headed to Great Falls tomorrow. Clocked a little over 2000 miles so far. Okie is running great, especially since coming down from those high elevations.

A pic of my bike on the rimrocks overlooking Billings.

Thumbs up Trip

Hi Greg, That is a lot of seat time. I know you are enjoying it. Glad Okie is hanging in there. I have been a lot of places, but not your area - yet. Maybe one day. Stay safe.

Mike

Hi Greg,
Good to hear you are having a good trip. Wish I could have made Durango. We like pictures

Great Trip ..

Nice to get away from the heat and nasty humidity at TUL

Keep the ride reports coming since it is always great to know about XS11's on those LD rides.

Enjoy your time in Great Falls

Jeff

Dang, Greg!

I kept clicking the little arrow on the pictures and it kept taking me back further and further with all the pictures you have like Joe and El Toro at the campground and a bunch of other places I remember.. and some I don't.

Man, it's almost midnight and time to shut down!

Went to the In-laws yesterday, cooking our turkey today. Cut it apart and freeze it for use down the line.

I'm doing well, what have you been up to?
