Nice pics!!!!!!! That's got to be some kind of record with how much crap you can pack on a Warrior. The only thing missingare the saddle bags and a kitchen sink.

Re: Just wanted to share some pics

This is just a few of about 2000 pics taken on my vacation last August. I rode from Seattle to north Idaho. Thats where I met up with my father. From there we went south threw Vegas over the Hoover dam and onto the Grand Canyon. From there we went threw Roswell and the Petrified forest to Lubbock TX to see my grandpa. Then to St. Louis to see my nephew and brother. Loved the caves there. Then started heading home, going threwthe bad lands in SD seeing Rushmore and crazy horse on the way. Stayed a few nights in Yellowstone. Everyone should see Yellowstone be for they die.Then finally back toSeattle. Best vacation I ever took. The first leg of the trip was none stop for 1500 miles. The whole trip if I remember right was about 5000 miles.

Wow thats awsome. Thats the kind of trip I would like to plan on my new warrior. maybe go with the old man or some friends. about how much did it cost and how many days was it? Looks like it was an unforgetable trip.

Not that it really matters, but what kind of gas milage do you get with all that gear strapped to your bike? It looks like all that stuff on the back would create a **** of a drag.

I have done alot of the trip you took, but in different vacations. That must have been the time of your life. Not only taking that trip, which is a grand one indeed. But taking that trip and seeing what you saw, and doing it with your Dad. KUDOS!!!!!!!!!!!

5000 Miles? How long did it take? I'll be doing a 2600 mile trip up to Colorado & back in June. Hoping to be back in 7 or 8 days.

Outstanding. I'd love to do that kind of ride someday. How many days did you take to make all that happen? Did you stay in hotels, or camp, or?

Good pic of the bike in front of the Grand Canyon.

Re: Just wanted to share some pics

The trip took 17 days. I did not calculate the gas mileage, but I only seen the gas light once. We made sure to really top off the tank, because we did not know if the next town would have gas. There was a point in Nevada that we went 135 miles and the light still did not come on. That was going 50 to 55 mph. being very easy on the throttle. The trip cost $2,000. We camped out at state parks. Stayed a night in a cabin. Couple nights in hotels. Couple nights sleeping on picnic tables (would not recommend the tables) and with family. I will post more pics later. It is unforgettable trip. My dad and I talked about going on the trip for two years, always wondering if we would be able to do it. Trip of a life time. Thanks for all the comments
