Hill Country, and Big Bend, was on my list last year but Alaska got in the way.

Another Cross thread..... I will be doing this a bit so no one misses anything of interest (and I dont have to repost crap)..... but it will only be on riding and performance issues.... so nothing from POD or Off Topic, I promise....LOL.

Something I posted about the Lolo pass on the M8 thread....in case you dont go to that thread....

You come off the top heading west after you have stopped at the Forestry building.... and you see the 99 mile sign, but you have already ridden quit a few miles of twisty road to get to it. You stop and take the obligatory picture and start off.... its downhill for a bit, then not so steep, but you start to understand that it is sweeper after sweeper after sweeper..... and the river is beside you on the left, the trees on the right and the mountains come off the valley floor and seem to tower over you.

And you get into this thing with the road, the river, the mountains.... and all time seems to have stopped....and the road seems to never end.... and time seems to slow down, even stop....and you begin to wonder when it will end, or even will it ever end, and you don't want it to end.... then you see another sign, and it says "Winding Road, next 77 miles" and you realize you have only be riding for 22 miles and maybe half an hour.....and it has seemed like you have been going for hours.

Then it hits you, Einstein was right.... time is relative, and it no longer has any meaning to you and what lays out in front of you, is not 77 miles, or an hour and a half of riding..... but a new understanding of time itself..... and a life time of memories of when you rode the Lolo.

The Western Regional HOG Rally is in Kelowna this summer. July 13 to 15. It will be a good test on the Pan for my Sturgis run.
