More likely it'd be a Dodge Power Wagon. I don't think there are any Ford dealers in San Pete County. I seen a Chevy dealer once, though.

We know it wasn't a Concours!

It'll be the new Concours. 200+ easy! Plus it'll be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Why here in the big city there's one on every corner, and some of the buildings even have TWO stories..

I'll bet you could get a new ZX14 based Concours up to 200 with a little work.

Unfortunately I think Dante's overlook and Artist's circle (or whatever it's called) are still both closed. The roads were washed away in the rains this past Spring.



I'd love to do another Death Valley ride but it's not the same if you can't take those two roads.

My favorite town in Sanpete is Mountainview.. pop 8. One guy's farm.



Could be worse. There are 3 counties in Nevada with no population at all. If you've been through there you'd know why.

What are you talking about MOfo?! We all know my Concours will do 250mph in 4th gear.

That's whats funny about Washington and Oregon, the evergreens, rivers and lakes etc are all in a narrow strip between the Cascades and the Pacific. The 75% of the state that's east of the mountains is sage brush, tumbleweeds and rattlesnakes.



Pretty good riding though, all rolling hills and loopy curves with the Columbia cutting through the middle....smell of sagebrush in the air... Just like a damn cowboy movie!
