Am I Insane?

Leaving tomorrow morning on this trip.

Forecast calling for rain and snow at Zion National Park our first day there.

Sunday morning we'll be climbing elevation to Bryce Canyon with air temperatures in the 20s during the AM.

Sleeping outdoors in sub-freezing temperatures.

I'm expecting water, sand, snow and ice all over the road.

And we'll be doing it on fully packed Ultra Classics and Gold Wings.

Seven of us are going.

It's going to be the coldest 1,500 miles of my life.

And the most memorable.


  1. yes, you are insane. certifiable. but I bet it will be worth it.

  2. Definitely insane, but it will be a blast! Ride safe!

  3. Insane? Hell no! You’re not looking for the same result over and over again. You’re looking for a new adventure. Have a good trip.

  4. The only thing that would concern me is the snow and ice on the road while riding a motorcycle. They don't go so well together. The rest? No problem if you have the right gear. Sounds like one hell of a good time to me!
