So I planned a trip.....

And took one. I ride a 2011 Vaquero, my wife a 2011 Victory Vision 8 ball. The plan was to ride from Las Vegas to Page Az, Page to Durango Co, Durango to Pueblo Co via the million dollar highway, Pueblo Co to Ft Dodge Ia thru Kansas and Nebraska using county roads as much as possible. Home was Ft Dodge to Sioux City to see a friend, to Kearney Neb, to Denver Co to see my cousin, to Grand Junction Co and then home. When I left home it was 121 degrees, bike went up to the last white line on gauge but never over. Had rain in different areas, lost my cruise control once until it dried out. Had a blast!!!!!!!!!! Neither bike gave us a problem. Went from Arvada Co to Grand Junction Co on 1 tank of gas, 240 miles thru the mountains. Couldn't believe it. Took 4.97 gals to fill it. Oh, and the total mileage, 3,468 miles. Did it over a period of 17 days with a 8 day stay in Iowa. And we are both 52....
