    4 corners, Monument Valley & Grand Canyon in one day

    Staying over in Farmington NM made it easy to access these landmarks. BTW, the Chinese lady wanted a pic with me and had her male companion/husband take the pic. She said something in Chinese, he said yes so I think I'm engaged. Hopefully, she's Catholic

    108 degrees feels so much better from where you're at. Apparently, when it drops down to 90 degrees they run out for milk and bread. I'll have large videos I'll link to Youtube when I get back, didn't bring my laptop because the drive to Monument Valley and the Canyon are spectacular in themselves. Tried to get Valley of the Gods in but Valley of the Gods Rd turns sharp right off a paved road onto a pitched gravel entry, then onto a dirt road, that wasn't happening.

    I missed 4 corners on my trip last year by about 200 miles. Glad you both got to see it!

    It's okay, it's a plate in the ground, it was close to the 2 big ones, Monument and the Canyon. We went from Flagstaff AZ to Blythe, Ca mostly in 110-115 degree heat in 60 West and that bike just glided with the temp gauge just sitting there, didn't even break a sweat, unlike me.

    100% confidence in that bike. I was in 90-100 degree heat last July without a hiccup. She’s awesome.
