Fly, Buy and Ride....Houston to Colorado

As you can see from a previous post, Bryce had sold his Honda in hopes of finding a VStrom. Thanks to ADV Flea Market, we found the bike he was looking for in Houston, Texas.

After a couple of weeks of waiting, I had business in Texas and did a fly and ride to pick up the bike and conduct business. Houston in the rear view mirror.

Upon arriving at Mom's, she was more than excellent in preparing a Country Fried Steak dinner, and cobler!!!!Brownwood, TX

Hill Country Roads. Leaving Mom's, hustling the bike up to the Panhandle where I would do business for a couple of days, I enjoyed some twisties.

One of the biggest ranches in America is the Four Sixes.

Texas does the best Road Side Parks. This one was amazing.

Trains along the highway.

Texas has a corner on the market of the modern Wind Generator. These things are all over the place.

Grain Silos.

822 miles on the odometer from Houston. It is a long way across Texas!!!

Entering Colorado.

Kim, CO

Kim is a tiny little place with a single store, kitchen and gas pump... Yeah, one gas pump.

There was a good Elk Hunt Story with this one.

Heading in to Colorado Springs.

And the final odometer read....
