While stopped for fuel in Blairmore, we met some south bound riders that warned us of bad weather ahead on the #22, near the Nanton turn off. They said there was 6" of hail on the road, and a Harley had hit the ditch (ouch).
As we made our way north, you could smell the rain. The clouds were dark and just looked nasty, so we suited on the side of the road. It was a good thing too, as we ran into heavy rain, but thank god, no hail. Luckily it only lasted a few km, then cleared up. We finished the last leg with out incident and arrived home around 6:30. I can't think of a better way to spend a week. If you own a bike, you really need to do this at least once, you won't regret it. Watch for the re-cap of the entire ride, complete with pictures and product reviews. Part of enjoying an adventure such as this is knowing how to prepare, and with over 25 years on the seat, I still learn something new ever trip.
It was great ride and had a lot of laughs. I really did enjoy myself, and know Rick also had a great time (it was his first Hes ride, and also the longest). I've only been back a few hours and I'm already starting to look forward to next years run, maybe we'll do a 9 day ride instead. To all the boys on the ride, thanks, and I hope you enjoy the Blog and the memories. Feel free to leave your comments.
