Well, we won't be to far behind you. After attending the Region 9 Rally in Bellville we will start our 3 month trip on the 28th of April to the NW. Right now we plan on stopping in El Paso for a couple of days. Our next over night will be at the casino in Globe, AZ. From there we are just playing it by ear. Just doing our part in stimulating the economy with our diesel fuel purchases.

Lumatic, thank you very much for the offer, but i think we are going to head up to petrified forest tomorrow. We just visited white sands, the winds were about 40 mph, we got sand blasted, lol. They were also filming a comedy with Jack Black. White sands is very beautiful.

Does anyone know how to make the pics smaller so i can post? I am using a 10 mp camera and the files are to big.

gaylejoe, enjoy your travels, maybe we will run into each other.

Nice bike Michelle,

Yes a lot cheaper than the plane and the truck. I do have a radar detector but I am not speeding. Really. 75 MPH is fast enough inches from the payment. Yeah those are our speed limits up here. HARD? What is that? I no they love red but red is also a high visibility color. That is why I am wearing a matching red jacket.
So red it is.

Nice bike Michelle,
Thanks,
What camera do you have? Do you have to shoot in full resolution or can you dial it down. I use iPhoto on my mac to reduce the size of my photos before posting. I also have Photoshop CS if necessary. Mac or PC?

The sands are actually gypsum. It stuck to my trailer for weeks!

Hi, Michelle. My last bike was red too and you do need to be seen. More importantly, you need to watch everyone else. As for flying, I know that bike is faster than mine was [1976 Honda Gold Wing 1000] and mine would do 75+ in second gear, with a five speed trans. [top speed 120 MPH and my friend's BMW was a little faster] Your's will fly, figueratively speaking. Does your Beemer have ABS? Maybe they all do now.

Michelle,

H.A.R.D. is a neat little gizmo that attaches to your radar detector and transmits a wireless signal to a tiny red LED that you put at the edge of your field of vision inside your helmet. It lights up when your detector goes off.

It works especially well if your wear ear plugs (you should) or listen to music thru earphones and would not otherwise be able to hear/see your radar detector.

Yep watching for everyone else that can be tiring in town.
Not sure how fast she goes in second gear but she is hardly breathing at 75 in 6th. The Speedometer goes up to 150! My R1200 does have ABS and linked brakes.

Ear plugs are not that big an issue. I can raise and lower the wind screen which cut the wind noise at my head significantly. I am not listening to music yet. The bike is still too new to me and requires too much of my attention.
Like i said I do onw a Radar Detector but I do not have it on the bike since the speed limits in Montana are senseable. Go fast when not in town!

George sorry for the Hijack. I think it is time to get back on subject....
Where are you now?

A thread would get boring if we didn't get sidetracked along the way. We are at Enchanted Trails RV park in Albuquerque, we wanted to go to Costco and do a little shopping. We are heading west today towards Canyon De Chelly NM and Petrified Forest.

We stayed at the Edgington RV Park near White Sands, Very very nice owner i would stay there again. 13 dollars with PA, with wifi. So far all 3 of the places we stayed have been ok.
