Uneasy Rider

Hiking along the Stillwater river in the Beartooth Range. Tubing down the Yellowstone River near Columbus, MT. Crossing Beartooth pass at over 10,000 feet and shivering. Eating a buffalo burger in Cody, WY. Gorge-watching on the Chief Joseph Highway. Rolling along I-90 towards Gillette, WY in strong crosswinds. Arriving in Deadwood, SD the day after Sturgis (you can get a table in any restaurant you want). Eating an elk burger at Old No 10 Saloon in Deadwood. Rolling up the Iron Mountain highway in the Black Hills – switchback city and hairpin county. Crossing the Missouri river near Chamberlain, SD in a torrential downpour and vicious crosswinds...

These are some of my experiences on a 3 day, 1200 mile motorcycle trip taken this summer with my cuz, Steve. He on his 2012 Harley Road Glide, me on my 1990 Honda Pacific Coast (aka “the Tupperwaremobile”), which never missed a beat.

Luckily we never had the problems that Wyatt and Billy had - only nice people on our trip and no rednecks!

Thanks and keep on rockin'

Pickin' and Grinnin'

Constant readers may remember a post from a couple of years ago entitled "Jammin' at Merkle's". Let's just call this one "Merkle's II" and leave it at that = thanks to Greg for the good shootin', and keep on rockin!
