I saw this on ADV rider and Tom was kind enough to give me permission to post this. It’s one of those picture of a lifetime shots that I don’t have enough of myself. What a Shot!

This was taken moments after arriving at Monument Valley for the night after the Labor Day weekend of 2010. This was my first serious motorcycle trip out of my home state of Virginia. I went with a co-worker that had done the cross country trip a few times, this was his first long trip on his 2003 BMW R1150GS.. The goal was to travel some of Utah’s scenic roads and see some sights. We saw and photographed some incredible scenes on the trip. I have been riding sense 2004 and bought the BMW R1100RT April 2010. The bike is perfect for such a trip and it ran flawlessly.
We rode Routes 24 and 12 and stayed with a couple (Ken and Shirley) in Kanab Utah for Labor Day weekend that is on a motorcycle guest hosting web site. They were top rate hosts that showed us some areas that we probably wouldn’t have seen. Monument Vally was very unreal. I really need to get back out there.
