I live in Chicago. I eat the fake Mexican food and love it too.

LOL. Yep. you guys have convinced me. I'll be rising to Seattle to get that "real" Mexican food. I'm sure it's more authentic than the place I was at yesterday where the menu was in Spanish. LOL!

Here are some photos of our 1,500 mile 5 day trip. These are of me and the bike at Foy Lake which is at about 9000 feet and is about 50 miles north of Monument Valley. This is proof that the Wing did more "Adventure Touring" than any dedicated AT bike I saw in 5 days. Well, actually I saw not one AT bike on any dirt or out of the way road. Did see some KLR's though. Good for them.

After all, who wants to get dust on a $20K AT bike, eh?

Other photos are from the overlook of the Colorado river at the north tip of Lake Powell.

If anyone is interested in cruising this part of the USA you need to be careful of your fuel requirements because there are stretches of over 100 miles with no fuel stops.

Looking at those photos makes you realize how it's a shame that Honda f**ked up the Gold Wing and decided to turned it into a boat.

...And, Doctor, you look NOTHING like I thought you would. I was picturing something closer to an angry Ralph Steadman illustration.

You could have at least had a shotgun in your hand.

Here's a few from Valley of the Gods.

We tried to do the 17 mile dirt road tour but the washboard was so bad that it literally vibrated the handlebars out of my hands at any speed over 5 mph. So we gave up after about a mile.

Here's some from the overlook of the San Juan River goosenecks just before it dumps into the Colorado. There's also a picture of the "Live Long and Prosper" rock.

Here's a view of the LaSals from the bottom. Then there's one from the LaSal's looking back down from about 8000 feet. That's after 30 miles of one of the most fantastic roads I've ever found.

I also threw in one of the Colorado River which is running about 8 feet higher than normal right now.

You are correct. I'm positive the Mexicans in Seattle couldn't print their menus in Spanish.
