That B&B looks lovely. Hope you are enjoying Denver while you wait to get the bike.

 Glad to see you so well situated, Richard, but you are expected in Cody on Monday, remember. Don't get too comfortable  :2: .

Well picked the T800 XRX up from EagleRider. They were a bit late handing it over to me as the one that was allocated to me was totaled by the previous hirer 3 days previously and this one had to be rushed up from New Mexico serviced an new tyres put on. They were still changing the oil at 10:30 😳
Anyway got away from the B&B at 12:30 after loading it up.



Went via this route

The temp in Denver was a hot +32C and then i hit torrential rain all the way from Granby to Walden and the temp dropped to 8C 😳

Let's hope it improves 😎

Now drying out in the Antlers Inn 🤗

Late start, but you are finally on the road, so that's good.  How's the Tiger doing?

 I'll be interested in that too.

 Red, blue, and green. Isn't that someone's national flag? Maybe we get honorary citizenship with free chain lube for life?  :2:

Now at Cody with Gus and Rob.
Bit of a wet journey up but stunning canyon scenery in places and very long straights before you get to a corner in others.

Now in the Big BeaRichard Motel for 3 days and hopefully Beartooth Highway tomorrow 😎



And those hills are bigger than they look. 😎

Is that it????
After all the bitching and whining you do to us about pictures.
You travel thousands and thousands of miles and ride hundreds of miles and tell us about the amazing scenery and we get one lousy pissing picture off you.

1 out of 10, must do better.

Glad you are there and safe though.

Well 2 is better than 1 but more more more.
Gus seems to be able to take enough decent pictures.

Maybe change your signature otherwise we are going to think that most of this didn't happen.
