Crater Lake, OR
An obstacle to negotiate...
Single track or no track through forest in OR
My old and new bike, Denio Jtn, NV
Uphill McDarmitt to Battle Mountain, NV
This "bridge" is on my TAT gps track! I didn't try it. Spend ages trying to find a work-round, and failed...
This "bridge" too. Easy work round through dry river bed.
Near Eureka, NV. If this is the loneliest ***paved*** road, then I didn't expect much traffic on the dirt that ran parallel to it. The deputy sherrif did pull me over on bit of paved road near Eureka.
Excerpt from dialogue:
DS: Do you know why I've pulled you over?
DS: You have no mirror,tail-light or registration tag.
Randy: Here's my mirror (pointing at mirror underneath handlebar)
DS. I see it now
Randy: Sure my tail light works (shows officer, removing dirt...)
DS: Yes it does
Randy: Here's my tag (cleans dirt off photocopy that's duct-taped to rear fender). Would you like to see original (paper 3 month temporary tag)?
DS: Yes please.
Randy: Here you go.
The cnutstable runs Randy's driving licence through the polis computah and sends him on his way with a pleasant "Have a nice day". Obviously no mention of his alleged run in with the OFAC Baja California TBSdotCom
Randy (thinks): Blind P!g, now go and catch some real criminals.
There really is nothing out here
2004 drz400e with 15/44 gearing for easier highway/easy dirt riding (not good when you failed to spot some sand and need to blip the throttle
4 gallon IMS tank
Ali skid plate
Luggage: Now sporting a rather dusty (but was shiney last week) Great Basin soft bag by GiantLoop. Works great. The red bag looks a bit full, but I've got a tent in there as well as a gallon of water if needed. The black thing on top of that is my "sweet cheeks" with two 2 litre (1 gallon) Coke bottles full of gas/petrol: So am carrying 5 gallons of gas in total.
Not just the Romans built straight roads...
I wish I hadn't turned left here, Between Richfield and Green River, UT
It got a bit rougher, but not too bad
Nice parking job...It got even worse. Sandy dried river bed. Not too bad. Liason bits in between bits of riverbed were very bad. I desperately need to get fitter (and younger). With nobody to help if I got stuck, it was getting a little worrying
Best Wishes from HOT "who turned the heat on" Moab, Utah
Still sincerely Randy
