    A Brief Photo Journey of My Rally Experience

    Finally have a little time to post a few more photographical memories of my trip.

    Packed up and leaving the house


    First night in Winnemucca and a healthy breakfast...my last one for many days...


    NOT a Starbucks but really good coffee!


    Welcome to 80mph speed limits!


    Pulled into West Yellowstone for breakfast and saw these 3 gentlemen and invited myself to eat with them. Bill, Mitch, and Rueben (aka The Kid).


    Bill and his R100/7. Where to next?


    Apparently, he has ridden few roads. This should impress any rider.


    Said see you later to the fellows and headed into Yellowstone Park. My baby posing by the Madison River.

    Ridiculous fun coupled with amazing beauty.


    Made it! Home sweet tent.


    My baby posing with the Jesses


    Looking good with her new Jesse luggage installed!


    More to come...

    Teach is incredible.





    Love these early bikes!






    Roy Eastwood, Mike Kneebone, yours truly, and Ross Copas. Four old school Iron Butts, I had the pleasure of riding the '87 rally with Mike and Ross, and my dad had ridden with all 3 in either 1985, 86, or 87. Great time.



    Packed up and ready to head home, with new Jesses, Altrider engine guards, skid plate, and headlight guard, and Seat Concepts seat.



    Bear watching at the Pahaska Teepee Resort just outside of East Yellowstone. Stopped there for breakfast, great food and atmosphere.

    Tetons!

    Lawman in Jackson Hole



    Moonrise through the pines (or firs, pines just sounded more romantic) from my campsite at the Jackson Hole/Snake River KOA



    And on that note I'll wrap this little journey up. Spent a lot more time in the saddle the rest of the way home and not taking pictures. Hope you enjoyed these.

    Excellent trip report. Thanks for posting.

    In the first part, I was wondering if your luggage was on order....
