Las Vegas to Moab via Punching Through the Storm

Did the first leg of the home coming trip to bring my new cruiser bike back.  Started in Las Vegas early this morning and then made it up to Moab, Utah.  The problem was, however, that there was a storm...which had just dumped snow in Zion National Park...and hail south of Moab...and was the storm we had to punch through.  Because it's now or never to bring the bike back.

Unfortunately the shoddy rain poncho/gear I bought was torn to shreds by cross winds and the ole Captain got drenched and a tad bit hypothermic, but it did provide for some great post-storm pictures (though Monument Valley was "rained out")


















Remember everybody,  buy ALL of my books so when I get home I can retire.

Get better riding gear.

Gear rules. Good gear keeps you dry, and prevents serious road rash.

Cap,

Camera/lens combo are you using? Some of the wide shots are quite stunning.

I have been caught in many storms but don't get wet while moving....riding my GL1800 Goldwing with a custom windshield and air wings to deflect air & water over and around. Yes it's a beast but amazing to stay dry while riding. Observers are stunned to see dry rider in the middle of a downpour.

Ah mate! If it weren't for those plateaus in the back ground it would almost look as if you were standing on the side of some Australian highways.
