For the third time in the past ten years, I made the hike down the Virgin River and through the entirety of The Narrows in Zion National Park.
Including a day hike up Kolob Canyon, my friend and I traveled about 20 miles in and along the river. Hiking in the 51 degree water for that distance can be a real challenge, but the levels aren’t overly high this time of year and November in Zion always promises the beauty of glorious autumnal colors.
For the second year in a row, I decided to ride a naked bike from Los Angeles to the Tetons and back again. I cunningly waited for my wife to go to work before stealing her new Yamaha SR400 for the trip, and was safely in Ridgecrest before she’d found out.
I managed to secure an invite for the “Bonneville Reborn” event in Los Angeles last night, so I fueled up my T100 and rode to the Ace Theater/Hotel in downtown L.A. Skip to the bottom for all the photos.
First off, if you’re looking for specs on weight, hp, pricing etc. you’ve come to the wrong place. I have zero concrete information to pass along. I spoke to three different dealers who were in attendance, and all three had the same uncertain data (“specs in early December” “specs on December 7” “specs the first week of December”). Two of them stood in line in front of me as we waited to get into the theatre/hotel, so I eavesdropped as they spoke to each other. I became convinced that they don’t know much more than the public.
