    That ST's working out for you, I see.

    As usual, terrific photos, Mike. Is Cisco an abandoned town or something?

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Good for you. Life's too short to spend time being berated. Of course, RR fans will be expecting frequent reporting. 3 bikes, no job.........

    Life is to short to be unhappy.

    Good for you and your decision to rid yourself of a poisonous work environment. Opportunity abounds for folks like you and I'm sure you will only be unemployed for as long as you want to be.

    Congrats on the pending arrival.

    Thanks for taking the time to share your ride. Need to get back to Western Colorado soon for a fix. Went to Ouray three years in a row and loved every minute of it.

    You will recognize this location (even though you couldn't ride there for a few more months).

    I used to post here, but now I don't.

Makes you think about a lot of thinks when riding when you hear/see an intense moment in two others' lives in a corner of a Wendy's/ gas station eating area....
    You've posted some great pictures and I hope you don't get a job for awhile because I'm enjoying these reports........., but I must say, this narrative of the Dad and the son is something I'll remember for some time. This is the true definition of "tough love". You've got some writing skills that compliment that photo eye.
