Big Trip 2015 - Back in the Saddle

Finally got around to editing the first day of our 2015 trip. A quick and easy run through the Canadian prairies and down into MT and WY. It was great to get Hammy back in action (even if it wasn't on a Versys)! I hope to get an episode done every month or so, but sometimes life gets in the way. Hope you enjoy!

Nice looking Beemer! That has to make the longer mileage days alot easier on you. Looks like you boys are settling into a great ride and good memories. Thanks again for posting.

Finally got around to Episode 2. This was a good day. It was GREAT riding with Hammy again. He cracks me up a few times in this episode. Pretty much a day of getting in place to tackle the Beartooth Pass.

No Video

It's been a busy couple of months, but I finally got around to finishing Day 3. This started as a great day! Beautiful weather, amazing roads (Beartooth Pass), and some amazing riding. Weather turned on us in the afternoon, but we still managed to make some KMs. Hope you like it!

Whitey - GREAT watching "day 3", and looking forward to more. We REALLY enjoyed riding thru Beartooth back in August...!

A couple of days ago I was trying to send you an e-mail to ask WHEN you'd continue the report, but I couldn't find your e-mail address, down here in AZ. Would you mind sending me a PM w/ it...?

Thanks.

Eddie, great to hear from you man. Hope you're staying warm in AZ, although I saw a few bikes out in Edmonton a few days ago (was a balmy +6). PM sent.

Finally got around to finishing up Day 4. Pretty straight-forward highway riding on this day, nothing too exciting. Just a nice sunny day riding some beautiful parts of MT and ID. Enjoy!

Try to do Day 5 while the memories are still hot...!

Ya the goal is to have episode 5 out soon....of course that's always the goal Not sure about the Okanagan yet, but it is looking like we'll be in BC this summer (likely The Island). Nothing in stone yet....just starting to discuss possible dates.

Looked like a relaxing/good time ride on day 4. Which is what riding should be. Thanks for keeping the video memories coming. Sure enjoy your efforts.

Thanks Whitey,

When you and Hammy were riding UP the Beartooth Pass, did you look over to the OTHER side, that dirt road that seems like it 'mirrors' the paved road, and... WONDER - WHAT IF...?

Not 100% sure where we'll end up yet, but come July 8, we'll be rolling west. Maybe out to the Island again, maybe a little further north, maybe back to the San Juans again. We'll figure it out when the time comes
