An additional flat, large rock step ups, and sandy hill climbs with buried rocks and steep drop offs made for some of our toughest riding yet. But it’s okay because we’re getting to see more and more of Utah’s beauty!
After leaving Moab, we made our way through the Utah desert including the narrow Black Dragon Canyon. It was beautiful! But it also kicked off a string of flats with a rusty nail :/
We made it through the Colorado mountains and into beautiful Moab for a day of rest and some new tires. And a return to much hotter weather!
Colorado sure has some pretty incredible passes! Also Caleb thought it would be a good idea to tie his jacket near his motorcycle’s rear sprocket…
We crossed the continental divide! I guess if we get tired of motorcycles floating to the Pacific is now an option ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Oklahoma sure was hot and flat! Thankfully New Mexico and Colorado are much cooler. And more mountainous. And they have trees. And the roads have curves. We appreciate all these things.
Oklahoma roads continue on and on. And on. And on. Also, we hit some gnarly mud.
We made it to Oklahoma! Which, it turns out, is pretty much just never-ending straight farm roads. Also, more kitten!
We leave Little Rock, AR and make our way through some rain in the Ozarks. And we find a kitten!
We’ve made our way into Arkansas (which is filled with lots of very dusty dirt farm roads!) from Mississippi. The Africa Twin needed a new tire so we headed about 40 miles off course to pick one up from Cycle Gear in Little Rock.
