Day One and Two
|Started out the night before. 98 easy boring miles into Laramie. Good thing I did too because
I discovered that I had an oil leak. Got my riding pants covered.
My left cylinder head cover was leaking. I will have to fix it in the morning.
This is also my first trip with a GPS. All miles will be GPS miles.
|Fixed the oil leak. I found that the rubber gasket around the spark plug hole was cocked.
I could not get it to seat right if I put it on the cover and tried to seat it that way.
So I seated it in the recess on the head with an allen wrench and put the cover back on.
No leaks for the rest of the trip.|
Stopped in Howell for gas, got their last 5.8 gallons. It took 20 minutes to get it. It was my own fault. I did not fill up in Laramie, and now was worried about the next stop.
|I saw these signs for the Sand Creek Massacre Trail. I kept watching for a sign for the site,
but never saw one.
I googled it when I got home and it occurred in Colorado. No wonder I didn't see the site in Wyoming.
|Just a stop for a picture.|
|Stopped in Shoshoni for lunch. Then on to Yellowstone.|
|Entrance to Yellowstone|
|Most of my pictures in Yellowstone did not come out very well, poor lighting. But I put a few up anyway.|
|Interesting rock formations.|
|Out on the other side. This is where I stopped for the night.|
|I met a couple of people out on their Honda Valkuries, and learned some tricks for my GPS from them.|
643 miles for the two days
