Today we went for a road ride.
I told Dave I wanted to ride for 6 hours on the gas with no stops. Alrighty he said! Let's go to the Strip.
Roads go forever down in the Strip
Our planned route was up the Water Haul road. This gate made us stop! Spiked road! We had to check that out.
I got a fancy new set of bags sewn up by Carousel Designs. I like them. Now I don't have to carry so much on my back anymore on big rides.
Somebody loves this road. I've seen these huge steel monsters out here and figured they were part of Arizona Strip history but they were being used to grade the road. We were out on Sunday and no one was working them.
This is serious vintage live and working.
Ha, ha so much for ride non-stop. I always have to take pics of this stuff!
...and up and up
The road was soft with no traffic. Mine were the first tracks of the year on this section
This is the sign on the top end of the Water Haul road. OK this cracked me up for a long time and caused lots of idle time
Our destination Cedar Pockets Overlook. It is like riding to the edge of the world
Overlooks always require idle time
Downward and homeward
