Last Weekend, Rode the Tiger to Paris...
 
IDAHO, Suckaz!!





Paris scenery!



Paris Emu!



Do any of you big city dwellers know what these are?



My kind of town!



Also went to Soda Springs and saw the geyser between periods of rain and hail.



BTW, The Tiger continues to run like a champ averaging around 48mpg in 80mph interstate cruising and riding on our horrible local roads. The only problem is the ****ty Triumph luggage. All of the little internal straps that are supposed to keep the lids from opening all the way have broken and been replaced by boot laces. Also, one of the plastic tabs that the straps connect to broke. Avoid the Triumph luggage.

Finally. No one should ride to Utah/Idaho, etc. Our roads are all entirely straight and flat. I hear Washington State is where it's at.

Oh. Cool.



I thought "Rode the Tiger to Paris..." was a Buffet tune. I got a bit excited there, fer a minute.





Seriously, great photos. I'd love to get a bike out there one day. Heck, I'd like to get myself on any number of tires out there someday.

Those photos look just like 75% of Washington State, except with out the grass, nothing but sage brush and tumbleweeds around here....

I hear Utah's the place for empty roads and beautiful scenery, not to mention them cute farmers daughters.....

I broke the tabs off my BMW cases by having my military spec binocs in them. When I opened I didnt have a Knee out to stop the bag, having a 10lb weight swing them to the stops. "POP" TG for super glue...

Dude, I can snap those same photos in Escondido.

It would have been more impressive if you were riding the Emu.

Idaho sounds great
 
I have thought about buying a retreat property there and from your pictures it looks wonderful. (I have never been there).The Tiger updates are great. It looks like Givi luggage on the next bike however. Anyone have any experience with Givi? Thanks for the update.

Except that it's a geyser of illegals down there. And nothing is green. And there's no Paris. And the roads are jammed with cars 24/7.

Aside from that it's exactly the same!

Perhaps you've never been to Perris, CA.

Lots of gorgeous meth labs.

Hey, Perris has the oldest MX track in the whole state of Kalipornia. Opened in 1938, when it was still called "scrambles."

Now about that meth lab business, can I put you down for a quarter? Real good stuff, PH level is right around 68, so your teeth won't fall out or get big meth pimples all over your back.

Oops! Too late!

Pop pop pop.
