800km today from 8:30 to 6:30, through rain, cold and crazy sideways wind….we are now beside the Kansas City Racetrack and there is a Nascar race this Saturday night…it’s already crazy here!
Yay more rain!!!!!!!!
Following the Colorado River – Moab Utah to Frisco Colorado. 22c at 4,000′ and raining – not too bad as the wind was reasonable – except for the gusts in Arches National Park.
The climb up along the Colorado River was amazing.
The temperature dropped with the climb and at 10,000ft and just 2.5c,
with our dashes flashing ice warnings, it was time for a boutique hotel The Frisco Inn.
Today we rode on part of Route 66 where we drove through a classic car rally and had a great lunch watching the cars drive up and down the old strip…..
then on to the New Hoover Dam Bridge and the Dam itself,…..
and then on to Las Vegas and the last AMA Supercross race of the season. The Hotel that we are staying at just happens to be where a lot of the teams are staying too!!
We rode from Tucson to Sedona today – deserts to pine trees…..wonderful elevation changes / temperatures / vegetation and geologic diversity! Riding some great roads in Arizona, what a beautiful State!
Tonight in Sedona we feel like we are in Whistler, with all the hikers and the fancy cars…..lots on money in Sedona.

M&M’s “Go’n Home Tour, 2017” – Day 6: Tombstone, AZ. Michele lectures Wyatt Earp on a Canadian’s point of view on Gun Control LOL!! Doc Holiday does some window shopping while Virgil & Morgan Earp chill. We loved Tombstone!!!
We had a blast in Tombstone & at the O.K. Corral… so we have progressed about… 0km further home!!
Michele gets stopped by the Earp brothers & Doc Holiday in Tombstone! Had to take a selfie of the Harley shop for our buddy Bronte Nowicki back home… – just for fun I took a swing at Wyatt – good thing he didn’t care much – but I knew he was empty after the shootout at the O.K. Corral. Way too much fun!
Things are looking a lot more familiar today……we are now in Tucson Arizona USA!
We had only one car in line in front of us for our vehicle exit process…
and nobody at immigration where we surrendered our Mexican Tourist Visas…
The American border was just 15 cars deep and that gave us time to get our Motos washed!
The street venders were very friendly and entertaining. A very professional border crossing – we were very impressed, even that was fun!
Michele checks out a huge-ass saguaro cactus on our way to Tucson.
Oh yeah…..only 1 time today did we drive down the wrong side of a Divided Mexican Highway following transport trucks as we all diverted around a huge accident…no police cars, guide trucks or flags….Yikes glad we were behind the trucks!! Here we are coming back onto the proper side of the road…
