R&R at Palo Duro Canyon

After riding up to Illinois to pick up my ZZ trailer, we headed south through Kansas, Oklahoma, and visited Palo Duro Canyon, SE of Amarillo. We ate at the Big Texan where they offer a free 72 oz. steak if you can eat the whole thing. I knew better, so picked a tasty ribeye w/ fried okra and a microbrew.

Looks like you may need a mud flap for that rear wheel.

Yes, you might be right. they had some heavy rains and flash flooding the day before, which had several of the water crossings either closed and/or packed with mud from the rains. Luckily, by the time we visited, the water levels have receded, and the mud had already be plowed away.

R&R continued in New Mexico

After Palo Duro, we headed for Albuquerque, NM for the H.O.G. state rally. I think we had the only BMW there, though there were a couple of other brands not HD. Here's a couple of pics of the morning sky day after the rally was over.

Pics are only so-so. camera I used has some kind of stains on the lens.
