Back home on Monday. Ken Webb & I rode from Salida over Million Dollar Highway, down US 191 through Hannagan Meadow and the Devils Highway, then back to Houston. Here are some iPhone snaps of our rides.

Got in late last night. Colette and I hung around until Monday afternoon and got in a few more days of exploring, on the gurly bike. Will get some photos, eventually...

We had a great time, riding, making some new friends, and seeing old ones. Big kudos to Randy and Deb, they made it all look easy, I'm sure it wasn't.

Thanks to Keith for burning the midnight oil the weeks prior, getting the routes out and translating into directions. Also thanks to Tewks for following me 15 or 20 miles back over Monarch Pass w/flashers going while I nursed a rear flat at 20mph back to camp, one cowboy trucker gave us a fairly big wake up call : )

Thanks to Bob and Eddd for moving and storage, and thanks to Kathy for driving Nigel and her paper butt 4000 miles to give everybody a big hug, wouldn't have been the same otherwise.

The B.C. crew checking in.

Other than one new tire needed in Salt lake, one with a patched flat on Independence Pass that made it home by adding air every 100 miles and my rear tire on the cords at 5k miles arriving home all is good and all is well. Yeah Russ, the Bridgestone 023GT rear only goes 5,000 miles!!!!

Good to see and meet the new, meet the familiars and others in Colorado. Hugs to Cathy and Raaan.
Gosh darn now I'm getting gushy, time to sign off....

Thanks to Randy (FB)et al for all the work involved. Great job, great location .......
Cheers

Just arrived home at 6 pm, chased by T'storms about noon for the past 10 days. Left CO via La Sal and Paradox, beautiful ride, then through Monument Valley today.

Thanks Randy and Deb for all the work.

Great Rally. Susan and I are home in Michigan, and Glen checked in from Quebec. Dogs are happy to have us back, and Susan is resting her ankle. See you all again.

Still home without my RT. Thought I was going to fly back to Denver this weekend, but the bike is not ready. Maybe in a couple of weeks.

I know. It's not every day we get to ride in 113 degree heat in Arizona. By the time I get my bike, it may be up to 115. Now that's hot.

Good news! Kudos to both Foothills BMW in Lakewood, CO, and to Western Service Contract (McGraw Group), which is my extended warranty company. Western found what they believed were very low mileage, like new, parts to use on my bike, which is what is stated in my contract that they can use. When the parts arrived at Foothills, the service department guys were concerned about the way the parts looked, and did not want to put them on my bike. After sending Western photos and a description, and having a couple of phone conversations, Western agreed they were not of the quality that they were told, and they didn't want them put on my bike, either. After considering various options, Western decided that the best thing was to order and install new parts. If everything is in-country, they should have all the parts next week, and my RT should be ready the week after.

Again, thanks to Western and to Foothills BMW for working together to get this resolved. I'd recommend both of them.
