Sent from my SM-G920V using TapatalkIn hiding out in a motel 6 in kingman, AZ because the temp outside is 106F.
I couldn't face sleeping out in the heat.
Tomorrow, I will be home and recap then.
Thanks for following along.

Another thought might be I-15 to I-70. 70 takes you through some pretty country and cooler once in Colorado. Then 76 up to 80. Or go through RMNP and head out on U.S. 34 and two lane it almost to Omaha.Looking back over the photos (and you've seen the best ones), I realize what a free feeling this gives. Some folks don't like giving over their lives to a GPS device, but I don't mind. It's thrilling to follow the directions and not know where I'm going... as long as I don't go off a cliff I suppose!
Two meals a day, gas, free camping (mostly) yielded an avg. expense of $53 a day. Not cheap. I was hoping to do better.
Things I'd change:
I'd be more prepared for rain. I didn't expect that in the heat of July.
Next year (April or May), I'd like to go up Interstate 5 to I-80 then over to Omaha on that. Much more northerly passage so maybe less heat? More rain too! Might take the other bike (FJR-1300) and stay in RV-Camps. The FJR wasn't made for dirt roads, but I admit there wasn't a dirt road on this trip the FJR would have failed on.
My NC700X remains my sentimental favorite of all time. It gave me no trouble on this 12-day long ride... not a moment's worry.
Thank you, for taking the time to look in now and then. I hope you enjoyed the show.
