Well, as promised here is the ride report from the above trip. A friend of mine (Bob) came over from California on his Gold Wing, on Sunday we met up with another friend (Matt) on his KLR650 and headed up Interstate 17 to the north country.

Monument Valley, Zion National Park the actual ride! Cameron

We stopped at the Cameron Trading Post. They make one of the best Navajo tacos around! Bob (Gold Wing) had never tried one!

Monument Valley, Zion National Park the actual ride! 4corners

The next morning we headed over to the Four Corners Monument. The only place in the US where four states border each other.

Here I am on the Monument, two of us drove our bikes around the area so we could say we had hit all 4 states!!!

Monument Valley, Zion National Park the actual ride! Ontour

Tuesday we took an all-day tour around Mystery Valley and Monument Valley! Spendy but worth it as the guide takes you places you are not allowed to see otherwise. The next pictures are from the tour.

Monument Valley, Zion National Park the actual ride! Laughlin

Thursday we headed to Laughlin, NV for the night. The temperatures were climbing!

Monument Valley, Zion National Park the actual ride! Laughlin1

View from our room at the Tropicana Express.

The trip was fantastic. The temperatures went from 30-91 degrees during the trip. Quite a swing for sure! Absolutely no mechanical problems for any of us! My fuel mileage went from a low of 48 to a high of 62 with the average being around 54 MPG. Can't complain too much about that. I put 1253 miles total on my SWing during this trip the others varied a bit from that but were in the ballpark. Bob on the Gold Wing would be higher as he started from Southern California. A good time was had by all and we all made it home safe and sound!!!

Nice Glenn, thanks for the ride report and pictures. I have been to Zion NP, years ago but with the family and in cages. I hope to get there on the Swing one day.

Glenn,
Thanks much for generating some very fond memories. I well remember (a long time ago) when someone suggested having a pee in all four states....

It's too bad that you were forced to stay in Nevada, at least not in Lost Wages.

Goulding's is one of my favorite motels.

Glad you and your buddies had such a great ride, Glenn. Great pics too. I especially love that one of the mitten.
