Just for fun, I would've stolen the rope. Cool

Day #8;

Not so cold leaving Las Vegas. Needing to make some higher mileage today did not leave much time for out of the way excursions. Except for a few miles into and out of Las Vegas, I had not ridden on an interstate at all during this return home. My long distance riding friend Ron would be impressed. I did stop at an over look just south of the Hoover Damn that gave a view of the Colorado River on it's way to Bull Head City/Laughlin. I make my way into Kingman, Arizona and pick up I-40 to blaze back to Kansas. I did make 2 interesting stops on my way. Just outside of Wilson, Arizona was a road sign and having served in the United States Marine Corps, I had to get a photo. Devil Dog the English translation of the German word Teufelshunde is a name that the German Soldiers gave the U. S. Marines at the Battle of Belleau Wood during World War I and the name has stuck. Back under way, another stop was in Winslow, Arizona. For those of us that grew up in the 70's and 80's, and listened to the rock band The Eagles, will know why I stopped in Winslow. This also happens to be on the famous US Route 66. On my way out of Winslow and back to I-40, I came across a 9/11 memorial that was an added surprise. I had to stop. Back up on the Interstate it was time to get some miles and get into New Mexico for the night. The previous 2 days were less than 300 miles each day. Today I ended up with 500 miles when I called it a day. Grant's, New Mexico would be the stopping point.

Hmmph! Albuquerque is only seventy miles from Grants. Dinner would have been on me. And a real nice guest room.

Day #9

The final day of my trip. I needed to be back in Wichita and had to bust out some miles. Today was a time where staying in the saddle was needed, so I took the most direct route back and didn't do any photo stops. Just a long 670 mile day. I can attest to how well the auxiliary lights and high powered LED headlight perform in the dark. As Hwy 54 joins Hwy 400, I was able to spot 2 deer standing just off the road and had enough time to be ready if they decided to bound out in front of me. I made it home safe with no incidents and no performance awards.

3908 miles over 9 days. An average of 434 miles per day.

Longest day was 873 miles, Day 2 of the trip.

Shortest day was 143 miles, Day 4 of the trip


Back in Kansas for the last sunset of this trip.



Not a single issue with the bike during the 9 day trip.
