We got an early start and more good weather today but with a deadline today the ride was all business.
Real early today 12:15am I looked out the window and saw a drunk staggering toward the Sportsters, he climbed on mine and I yelled something about a bullet in his head. As he scrambled off he tripped over Lori's, got up and walked into the sprinklers as he moved on down the road. I called 911 (the PD is 150 yards from the Hotel) they said I had the wrong number and would transfer me. It rings awhile and a guy says "hello?" I say is this the police? He says "no", I say "I'm sorry" by then the guy was out of sight.
Anyway we had a good breakfast at the Plaza and got going on time. 25 north out of Las Vegas NM is one of those perfectly paved roads with infinite beautiful scenery. Green grass, farms, rocky hills, mountains and plateaus. You are passively and consciously aware of your surroundings the entire ride. I don't have the skills to capture these scenes, you owe it to yourself to find the time if you haven't.
But we did stop for gas!
From Pueblo north to Denver is kind of like Southern California or area around Phoenix just at a higher elevation. Same type of development, restaurants, and stores repeated every 5-10 miles. The buildings are styled differently to reflect the communities devoured to create room for the big box stores and "Town Center Cross Roads Pointe (with an E)" malls.
We'll be in Denver a couple days then back on the road. Got to go do what pays for the trip so probably won't post much 'til Thursday except Instagram #66MotorPalace. Thanks for checking in!
