 They only ride who do not stand or sit  :015: :015:  .....  or talk   :015: :015: :015: :015:  ......  or fiddle with their gear  :180: :180:.

 Never mind, the Lad's coming  along nicely. His Southern (U.K.) twang is the envy of the locals   :008: :008: .

Gus and Rob don't stop that much as they are accomplished mile munchers 😎

Richard 😁

Ahhh, ......the joys of group riding.

Keep in mind that it may be the only time you pass that way but 2 or 3 mins spent for a picy will last a lifetime.

Sometimes less can be more, especially with mileage.......imho of course.

 If we stopped every 10 minutes on some of the straightaways the pics would get very repetitive, and in the canyons Gustavo and I can't get T.M to even draw breathe, All he wants to do is twist his right wrist  :027: :027: .

 Unfair, very unfair  :whistle: :whistle:

 Besides, I'm sure this is a Fake T.M., not the one you all know and love. Haven't seen or heard a hint of an ice cream. Dead giveaway.

 Yellowstone and Chief Joseph Highway today before returning to Cody tonight.

I am wondering if he is not getting along with our colonial cousins and is waiting to get home before he pours forth his vitriol.

I look forward to his scathing missive on arrival back on these green and pleasant shores.

Stewie, that's hardly the case.  We are getting along just fine.  As long as he keeps buying ice cream, we are all great friends...   :whistle:

I may be wrong, but I think this is TM's first trip abroad and suspect the riding is very very different from the narrow single track roads that (unfortunately imho)  often frequent the NVM routes.
Couple this with riding on the wrong side of the road, a strange bike, higher temps than Scotland, riding with new riders and stress/fatigue levels could well be higher than normal. There will be a lot to take in......and a lot to report on....in time.....hopefully.
