Live EVERY Day Story & Photos: Jo Ellen Roberts

I’ve been riding since 2007. Once I passed the safety class, my dad put me on his Street Glide and he rode his Springer. Fast forward 12 years, my dad bought a new Road Glide and shipped the SG to me in Florida three years ago. Last year my 64yr old dad passed away unexpectedly from a massive heart attack the day after my birthday. It’s been a tough 14 months, but I’m finding my smile again. This past weekend I did something fun and had these pictures taken with my dad’s favorite motorcycle. Live every day like it was your last. Ride It Like You Stole It!!! BB Life

Out Riding Again BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY I spent the last 4 days on my motorcycle riding with Cheryl Avery. We rode the Blue Ridge Parkway, 421 The Snake, The Devil’s Whip, The Python, and The Diamondback Rattler. It was the first time I’ve been able to ride this much in a few years. It was awesome and the most alive I’ve felt since losing Thanks Cheryl for daring to ride my parents. with this crazy redhead!

Raleigh Clayton Area Riders - RCA Butt SaddleSore 1000

1000 miles in 24 hours or less. That is what it takes to earn the certification for the Iron Butt SaddleSore 1000. Lee Chamblee of Zebulon, NC made the decision he was going to accept this challenge once again. This would be his third SaddleSore, but his first time setting one up and taking the lead. Initially there were going to be close to a dozen bikes total, but unfortunately for reasons beyond their control some just couldn’t join. In addition to Lee the others that joined on this ride were Jay & Michelle Honeycutt (Linden, NC), Joseph Jones (Garner, NC), Justine Homiak (Knightdale, NC), Denise Southerland (Garner, NC), Robert ‘BobCat’ Spurgeon & Chris Perry (Clayton , NC). On Friday July 9th at 7 pm the group of eight (six bikes, 2 passengers) met at Redneck BBQ Lab in McGee’s Crossroads. Reaching the meet up spot proved to be a challenge in itself for some of us with torrential downpouring rain complete with thunder and lightening.

Raleigh Clayton Area Riders is a 1000 plus member Facebook page founded by Greg Toback and Dan McCormick to provide a page where local riders can come to look for and post rides. We have day rides all the way to multi day rides that include trips to the mountains, bike fests across the united states and everything in between.


Leaving promptly at 8pm a rainbow was the first thing to grab our attention as we started in route to Daytona, Florida. The weather cleared and leaving at night proved to be the best decision ever. The ride down was absoutey flawless with only a couple of stops to fuel, stretch our legs and of course grab a cup of coffee. We reached the Bruce Rossmeyer’s Daytona HD dealership just before 5:45 am Saturday morning. We had made great time and were able to relax for a while and even searched out some quick breakfast in Flagler Beach, Fl., before heading back. Coming back there was congestion on I-95 between Florida and Savannah, Ga so we detoured around using I-17 for a stretch. Even with that we were still able to stop in at the Savannah Harley-Davidson dealership. Pulling back into the Redneck BBQ Lab parking lot at approximately 5pm on Saturday evening all six bikes and eight riders had safely completed the SaddleSore 1000 in approximately 21 hours. Upon completing and submitting the required paperwork and fuel receipts we will receive certificates showing we are now part of the “Iron Butt Association World’s Toughest Riders’. The best part... we had a blast doing it!

LIFE NORFOLK TO KILL DEVIL HILLS My girlfriend was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple of months ago and her one request was to go for a ride before she started her treatments. Well, with my work schedule working on a tug I was unable to take her before she started treatments because she started them before I got home from work. (We thought she would start after I got home but the doctors started her earlier than expected) We were fortunate enough Tuesday that she was having a good day and feeling well and we were able to take that ride she wanted to go on. We went from Norfolk down to Kill Devil Hills for lunch and even stopped for ice cream on the way back at Southland. She had a blast and so did I.

We Say Good Bye Joyce Dawn Ruffin Joyce Dawn Ruffin passed away July 17th, 2021, at the age of 51. She was born September 29th, 1969 in Nash County to the late Milton and Barbera Bryant Joyner. Joyce is survived by her fiance Daniel “Red” Bass; sons, Michael Allen Ruffin and Tyler Shane Cobb; stepmother Lydia Foster; brother Milton Timothy Jr.; sisters, Shari Adams (Jerry) and Crystal Joyner; several nieces and nephews.

Joyce loving it and living it somewhere out on the road behind her baaaaby! Left: Joyce and Red. Joyce always had a smile on her face.

Joyce could always be found beside her man, Daniel Bass. He was always “Red” to me so that is how I will refer to him here. They were like a twin engine on a Harley-Davidson...always side by side, connected at the hip, making that beautiful rumble together! She loved riding shotgun with Red, (while he worked), on his big truck all across this great country! And did they ever see a lot of it together! They made lots of friends everywhere they went and folks never forgot either one of them wherever they stopped! Joyce was an amazing cook and always had an awesome meal waiting for Red when he returned home from his job on the road. Many of her friends and some family called her, “Ma.” She treated everyone how she wanted to be treated and had the kindest of hearts! Joyce loved riding motorcycles. She loved riding motorcycles with her friends. But most of all she loved riding behind her “baaaaaby” on the back of his bike! They rode everywhere together, for all kinds of charities, weekend rides, and of course, they always rode to the taco truck. Joyce loved tacos! So much that Red and her friends had a taco truck at her celebration of life! At Joyce’s celebration of life were many close friends, family, and the guys from the 13th NC Latham Battery saluting her by firing their Civil War era cannon!

Above: Joyce on Red’s bike.

Many are mourning the loss of Joyce and they will feel empty for some time, especially Red. Joyce touched so many during her time here and gave everyone wonderful memories to charish. ~Doobie She will be terribly missed. We love you, Red!

The Bullw Chron

By: Bob Seymour “It’s hard to believe but summer is almost over already and fall is knocking at the door. The daylight hours are fading and cool evening and morning temperatures are a very welcome change from the sweltering heat of the dog days of August. Fall is one of my favorite times of year, the colors that the shortened daylight hours produce are breathtaking and the cooler temperatures make for some great riding that is easier on Bullwinkle and on me. There are still a lot of good riding days left before the season ends for much of the country and I hope to get many more miles under my belt in the more northern parts of the country before I’m forced to go somewhere south. I spent a little over a month in Belle Fourche South Dakota this summer, it was a trip I will never forget. I had no idea why I was supposed to go up there so early but I felt it so strongly in my spirit that I had to go. I went up several weeks before the Sturgis Rally began to stay with a good friend I met in 2016 in Henderson Nevada when I was doing a 48 state ride. He came to meet me in a hotel I was staying at and we have stayed in contact for more than 5 years now.

“Sharing T

Fourche he and my friend there connected in a very powerful way, in fact the brother from Indiana said he arrived there as a total stranger but left with a new brother. Connecting these two brothers is only one of several people I have felt needed to meet and in each case the relationship has resulted in strong bonds of brotherhood. I have been living on the road for 6+ years and during that time I have been blessed to have met thousands of people that I would not have met if not for a couple of things. The first and most important thing that led me to meet so many people is my faith in God to provide a way for me to get all over the country. The second and equally as important thing is my love for people and always being available for God to use to minister to them. My faith and willingness to go wherever the Spirit leads has led me to some incredible Divine encounters that changed my life and the lives of numerous people across the nation.

While I was there I helped him build some fence in the early morning while it was cool enough for two old men to be out in the sun and then he and I would ride the Hills together or I would just relax in his camper. He and his sweetheart other half were amazing hosts to me, they fed me more home cooked meals than I’ve had in years and they provided me with my own camper/toy hauler so I could have all the privacy I wanted, they were and are a real blessing.

In 6 years as a homeless scooter tramp it has been Bullwinkle that attracted all the attention in the biker community and opened doors for me to build a network of like minded people all over the country. As of yesterday he and I have logged 151,000 miles together and just since I left Atlanta 4 months ago we have logged close to 12,000 miles and 1,500 of them were pulling a pop up camper. He has been the most powerful tool for sharing the gospel without religion being involved I’ve ever dreamed of having and I thank God for him every day.

About 6 months ago I was praying for my friends in Belle Fourche and a very good friend from Indiana came to my mind and I knew that the two of them needed to meet so I contacted them both to see if I could arrange a meeting between them. When both brothers said they were very open to meeting it confirmed in my mind that the Spirit was behind their meeting and when my friend from Indiana arrived in Belle

I was riding the Black Hills in South Dakota with my friend from Indiana and one from Colorado when Bullwinkle’s odometer hit 150,000. We had just left Mt. Rushmore heading into Keystone when I saw it roll over from 149,999 to 150,000 so I pulled into the first parking lot I saw to get a picture of the milestone number on his odometer. When I put the kickstand down and grabbed


Livin ' The Life



The Gospel”

my phone to get the picture I had a momentary emotional breakdown. In my mind I saw the faces of thousands of people I have been blessed to meet and minister to. I saw grieving families and friends at some of the funerals I attended and performed and the pain and hopelessness in the faces of the parents and grandparents I met in children’s hospitals. I saw the joy of people I had the honor of performing weddings for and the thousands I’ve sat across a table in bars sharing the gospel with. It was like I saw my whole life pass in front of my eyes in about 5 seconds… As I have been pondering what transpired during my time at my friends place in South Dakota and during the Sturgis rally I realized how easy it has been for me to do all the things I do when it’s God leading me. I don’t in any way mean it has been easy in the natural realm because I give everything I have every month and I sacrifice my time to stay on the road and connected to people, but in the spiritual realm I have done nothing but be available and willing for the Spirit of God to use. Every morning I make myself available for God to use and every night I thank Him for what He did through me or in me that day. As I was writing this I remembered my friend Gail’s scooter shop’s motto “Feel The Power”, it has nothing to do with the horsepower of a scooter and everything to do with the power we all have to influence our little part of the world. All it takes to change our communities and our nation is a smile or a simple act of kindness to a stranger. I have no doubt that bikers have the biggest and most generous hearts in our society and I am praying that we will all step up and start a change in our respective communities. We all want to see our country change and it’s time for us to realize that the change needed must begin within ourselves first. Use the platform you have to make someone else’s life just a little easier today…..“

the good news! Rodger Duvall ~ Jesus Freak Thee Redeemed House biker Church

”Are You A Night Rider?” Are you a night rider? Not every often do I ride at night especially back roads that I’m not familiar with. I did ride through the night up 95 north from Daytona bike week about 6 years ago, I wanted to get home alittle faster. I know that interstate straight up north, everyone on the same side moving in the same direction. At night I always want more light to illuminate the areas I can’t see well. I try to ride early in the day and not to late in the evening, I know you’re thinking hard core Biker lo I have come up upon objects near me riding at night that have slowed me way down the rest of the ride in preparation for anything of unseen obstacles. Being on a interstate at night with everyone heading in the right direction presents alot of light for all travelers. Darkness presents many obstacles and it takes a continuous faith to maneuver Darkness, definitely riding by Faith and not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7 One can have knowledge of what might be hidden in the Darkness, what if the Darkness had knowledge of you and came for you , a Darkness that knows how to create something you couldn’t see coming! This Darkness can see, but it looks in the wrong direction in the open to blind us. There is a Darkness in this world that is blinding our sight of light, and it is blinding us with and by this question. ...“ what in the world is going on?” Trying to figure out something that we can not find an answer to will make one shake their head in


disbelief, and it often ends there and we stay in the dark of it’s deception thinking it will get better when the truth comes to light. Who is going to bring light to this darkened world ? Jesus.. Also every believer to make a decision for all to move in one direction, the right direction, shinning our light to overcome this darkness. The Apostle Matthew recorded Jesus telling a parable of burning light lamps of oil .Matthew 25. These lamps burn oil to quickly when their wicks are not trimmed correctly, when to much of the wick is exposed black smoke hides the light. Being aware of this in advance prepares one to save oil for light in the Darkness. A properly trimmed wick gives the right light and burns a clearer combustion for the right measure of fuel. Did you know a oil lamp wick will last through 15 gallons of oil. 5 lamps = 75 gallons. 5 lamps of untrimmed wicks will only last to 35 gallons. Who will have light to see through this time of Darkness?, the 5 with 75 or 35 gallons. Don’t allow the Darkness of this world keep you in the dark “ Be sober minded be watchful your adversary the devil prowls around like a lion seeking someone to devour...The devil just like a lion prowling after its prey, couches to be hidden from sight so it can attack unnoticed by blind siding its prey. Let’s Ride together with this direction in mind, don’t allow the deception of being deloustioned, but be sober minded as Peter writes this warning in 1 Peter 5:8,9 Verse 9 says, RESIST the deceiver! STAND firm in the Faith! Because we know all the believers throughout this dark world are questioning what is going on. Where do you want to be found? In the dark at Jesus’ return or in His Light of Him.

LIFE Yuliya Goloskokova Republic of Kazakhstan My name is Yuliya. I’m from the Republic of Kazakhstan riding across South America, currently in Peru on my Benelli TRK502X.

On Another Continent

Been on two wheels about 3 years. Never before thought I’d be a rider. Never ever thought that one day I’d be stuck on another continent amid a tour around it during a pandemic. But here i am. I rode a tiny automatic scooter for couple of years living on the coast of Ecuador until the day that the motor started falling apart from overuse - you don’t do 300miles in one day from 0 to 13000 feet every few days on a city scooter… my mechanic called me Julia La Asesina del Motos, rolled his eyes changing my oil every week. Few times I was towed by passing by trucks, just rolled downhill, got picked up by Andean tribal field workers in their 50 year old ford pickup in the middle of the mountains pushing poor scoot towards the town 20 miles away, its day arrived and so I went shopping for a bigger bike. Pointed my finger at “that one”, 200cc Chinese city bike - three days later it was ready. Upon picking it up, mounting it it hit me that I’ve got no clue how to ride a gear bike. Never did. Didn’t occur to me before to ask someone to teach me. Guys at the shop had no words. But basic explanation and “blessings for the afterlife” Gringa was on her way. 20 stalls later we were friends and the bike did 20k in the next 6 months on work trips around Ecuador. I’m a spinal therapist. It was not long before we were invited to Horizons Unlimited meet in Quito where I met a fellow Belorussian world traveler, Katerina Dubanevich, and a tiny idea of traveling not just to fix backs popped up in front of me. One thing led to another and I’m now 16 months in Peru - making myself useful fixing backs and trying to visit and video document rarely seen by tourists places while waiting for land borders to reopen so I can continue down towards the extreme south of this fantastic continent. You can just never know what life throws at you. I never thought I’d be a moto traveler but I am currently in Cusco, Peru.

beach bound for boston

June 19th was a great day with around 55 bikes, a few cages and lots of love shown for a Brother and Sister of ours (Boston and Danielle). Boston was diagnosed a few months back with ALS. A progressive neurological disorder which results in weakened muscles and deformity. Treatments can help manage the condition, however there is no known cure. Tar River Bikers For Christ did our annual “Run to the Son” which is usually a ride where we gather and ride to fellowship with other chapters and M/M’s with no charge. This year however we called it “Beach Bound For Boston” and asked a donation of $20.00 per bike or cage. Boston was also able to accompany us in a van with Danielle behind the wheel which made the day that much more special. We ran into people who asked for prayer. We ran into people who when they found out what we were doing donated money on the spot and we had people who couldn’t go on the ride but rode over two hours to meet us in Greenville to give donations. We also had members come in from Virginia Beach to ride with us. This is why I love being a Biker and Riding with my Brothers and Sisters from BFC. May God richly Bless everyone that showed up, rode, donated and or Prayed for us and this event. Due to everyone’s generosity and Va. Beach Chapter also taking up money we were able to hopefully ease the financial burden a little for Boston and his family. Much love to you all. Boston, Danielle and Family, you are Loved by many. Much Love, Bikerwolf

From The Mind of Well, that is until some asshole is riding dead on my ass and I can see their cellular phone in front of their face. I can say, my butthole starts to pinch the seat when that happens, Or when you are riding the back country roads and you start to dig into a nice long curve and the road is covered in freshly cut grass. You can say the stress level starts to peak a bit, but you can’t fix stupid so always be prepared.

Big Ed aka 2Timer

Hello My Happy People! You got to have a certain love of nature to be a biker. Wind therapy is great when life has been kinda rough during the work week and we are ready to ride and let the stress go. Nature is also a big part of it, man. You might not go stomping around in the woods looking mushrooms or trying to identify tree leaves. You may not even care to venture into the woods at all. If you don’t, you are really throwing away a benefit of this gift God has given to us. Just stepping out to your bike and taking a moment to breathe. Closing your eyes an just inhale a deep breath and let the air fill your lungs. Hold it in for a few seconds, maybe count the seconds in your mind, one through five. Now let it out. Do it now while you are reading this article. I’m telling you, if you are stressed in life, it’s always good to go back to the basics of life and that is breathing, man. Let’s do this together for a moment. Seriously.. Take a deep breath and hold it. Count one…hold... five…breath out. Now just take a few seconds and lets do it again. Do this about three times of taking a deep breath and holding it and then after the count of five, let it go. If you are doing this right now, I can promise you, that deep down you are feeling better already. Stress is a huge part of our lives. Although it doesn’t have to be, but shit happens right? That’s why riding is a big stress reliever to me.


I know I might sound a bit like a hippie, or a some tree hugging nature loving nut job. Thing is, I know stress and I look for ways to ease my mind and my motorcycle is like some of the best medicine I could ever take. I especially like the evening rides. When the sun starts to hide behind the trees and the air starts to cool. The sky has that palish glow and there’s just this peaceful feeling that overwhelms my senses. I’m not really heading anywhere. It’s just a ride to clear my head. I’ll actually do the speed limit and listen to the pipes sing a mellow tune. I watch the road and focus on nothing. Looking at everything around me, as pass it by. My mind is just in a drift I reckon you can say. I start looking at my top tank and seeing how dirty it is HAHAHA! Everything just seems to fade away and you don’t really give two shits about what’s wrong with the world. I ride an ‘08 Nightster, sure I know. I’m 6’2” and running about 250 pounds. I take that back. I don’t run...but I’m a big ol’ boy on a little bike but time will come around for me soon. My main focus is making sure my family is good and I don’t really worry about things that I really want. Sure, I would LOVE a Street Glide or maybe a Road king. I would LOVE IT, but that time has not arrived for me yet. So, I’m happy with my little 1200. I can keep up with my brothers and I can relieve the every day stress of life in the wind with it, so it works. That’s the things that I think about sometimes on my bike. The present and looking ahead. I know we are not promised tomorrow, but there’s nothing wrong with day dreaming and loving life. The government doesn’t control that yet. I have no doubt it’s in our future. 5G towers are popping up like flees on a stray dog’s ass and nobody is caring to actual do any kind of research to see how dangerous these things are. 5G has the capability of being military grade weapon and is currently. We are completely fine with 4G, but it’s never enough is it? You wonder why we stress the way we do and you will laugh at me when I tell you it’s what we are exposed to. We are killing ourselves so the rich can get richer, and we are ran by Globalist. The agendas are real and so is population control but like I said, nobody is doing any research. We are just a bunch of sheep except those like minded as myself and we are the sheep who get lost from the herd and wonder off in the woods. Eventually the sheep herders are going to want to keep all his sheep in the herd from wondering off.

Big Ed... We the people need to wake up fast because the world is moving in a bad direction. We are getting distracted with the government giving out crumbs in child tax credits and filling our heads with bullshit vaccine propaganda. We are all being lied to and we’ve caught them in their lies time and time again but the sheep are so easy to forget. “Our choices get taken away from us when we are not given the proper options, information, and truth. There’s a saying, “You always have a choice.” Not when all the options aren’t available to you! If the truth is hidden in a vault that you don’t have access to, or lost in the past and forgotten, how can you make the right choice?” Yea, I’m that guy. I believe in a free country of choice and personal freedoms and this country is stressing me the f*** out. We are heading full throttle into socialism but people are more concerned with who’s getting the shot and their hand outs from the Government. Yelp…this is why I LOVE TO RIDE. It helps me chill and not focus on how stupid this is all getting. We are in the center of a shit show and I pray God has mercy on us all. Well , I’m going to stop here. If I go any further I will wake a few people up but also lose a few of y’all who are happy to stay asleep. Being a biker is about freedom and enjoying the freedom we have that was bought in blood by the men and women who serve this great country. I’m pretty sure when they signed up to do that job, they were thinking they were fighting for this country to keep those freedoms. Right now we are seeing nurses who were hero’s last year but are now losing their jobs ‘cause they want the freedom to choose what goes into their bodies. Please wake up soon before we lose it all. Okay...That’s enough from me. I love you guys and thank you for reading what’s on my mind. Let’s get out there and ride and be thankful for that RED WHITE AND BLUE and let’s not forget why it’s there. God Bless America and I’ll be seeing you Behind Barz.

The Sturgis Rally & races is held every year in August in the tiny town of Sturgis, South Dakota. The population count for Sturgis about 7 thousand. This year the 81st Rally brought in over 500,00 bikers to Sturgis and the surrounding Black Hills. We have compiled a few pictures here of some of the amazing sights, bikes, and people Livin’ The Life at the Granddaddy of them all ~ Sturgis!

81st Stur

Especially with its animatronics, the jaw bites, it spits water or air at you, horns go up a foot and a half and they kick out.” MIke, Counting Cars star. If you were curious, Mike says it took 3 years to build this bike and it took 5 and a half months just to print the parts. Some like it hot!

People have asked me many times during this pandemic if I missed the road and performing. Somedays I did and somedays I did not. Once I hit the stage last night to a packed house in Sturgis, there is no question I did. But what I missed most of all was YOU, the fans. I hope veryone had a great time, I felt the love, and thank you for that. There is nothing the mainstream media or internet and social media trolls can do but look at this pic and weep, knowing they will never beat us. F them, love to you all.

South Dakota Governor, Kristi Noem, in Deadwood, S.D. for the Legends Ride. She is pictured here with David Uhl. Thanks to David Uhl, we were able to raise $80,000 for Treasured Lives today before the start of the Legends Ride in Deadwood. His painting of me and Ice Man at the Buffalo Roundup sold for $55,000 and the flag I carried onto the stage this afternoon sold for $25,000. All of that money is going to Treasured Lives to help with their support for victims of human trafficking. This is an issue I have been fighting for and working on as a lawmaker for more than 10 years. Thank you to David and the winning bidders for supporting this amazing charity.


Continued from page 35 Photo Left: Check out the guy in the chair...just scrolling through his phone, minding his own business, while smoking a cigar. Photo Right: Rod and Sal in front of the Field of Flags. This display of nearly 1,000 flags is located at the Buffalo Chip and honors soldiers past and present. It is a tribute to servicemen and women who have sacrificed to protect our freedom. The magnificent display surrounds a solid granite memorial stone honoring all branches of service as well as POWs. The American veterans Traveling Tribute Wall is also located at the back of the flags in front of the majestic Bear Butte laccolith. Photos by: Sally Colhoff STURGIS, SD After 30 days in Face Book jail and over a week in the hospital with Covid then pneumonia, which was no joke, I’m blessed to still be here. I promised Tammie to see Sturgis one day and we finally made it out to Sturgis for the 81st and just like last trips to Sturgis all I can say is, wow! They really welcome the bikers here and in fact all road construction is halted for the 10 days so traffic can flow. Sturgis and all the small towns within a 50 mile radius have no car traffic on Main Street. Daytona you should come out here and take notes and save your event. Anyway, great times at a great place with my love and I am thankful and blessed to see it again. Stay safe my friends!

Monument Valley I’ve always felt a spiritual side to riding and have often referred to my rides as “my Church”. If riding a motorcycle is Church, then Monument Valley is the Cathedral in which communing with nature is at it’s apex. My man, Jeff, and I recently completed a 3,500-mile adventure over two weeks. We started by completing an Iron Butt Challenge, the Saddle Sore 1,000, the first day of our trip. We went on, visiting his parents outside of Phoenix. Then, like all bikers, we took the scenic route home. After a day of heading west to California, then north to Nevada, then back into Arizona, riding Historic Route 66, we spent a night at the Grand Canyon’s south rim. The next day, we rode probably our shortest day, but the best day for photography and relaxing.

Its 10-15 miles to the Utah State Sign, where my rather unwilling photo subject and I stopped to collect another state sign photo with an amazing view in the background.

Heading out of Grand Canyon National Park on Scenic Highway 64, we spent our Memorial Day riding the Navajo Code Talkers Memorial Highway on State Route 264/US Route 160 through Tuba City, the home of the Code Talkers. I rode through the heat of the desert keeping them and their families in my thoughts and prayers. As we approached Kayenta, AZ, the highway curves to the right and all of a sudden, the bluffs and mountains on the left fall away and the first rocky formations of Monument Valley come into view on a vast plain that seemingly stretches forever. We gassed up in Kayenta, had a snack and refilled water bottles. Heading north out of Kayenta, we were able to catch our first photo op. Looking at the map, side roads are not apparent, but there are dirt roads every mile or 2 with asphalt enough to pull over a bike or two.


Continuing north, I never thought in a million years that the highway was so close to these beautiful limestone formations. I rode down the highway feeling the positive energy of the earth, hot wind in my face, thrumming engine in my ears....peace. I forgot completely to signal to my man to pull over at one of the 12 designated scenic stopping

One Woman’s Bucket List Ride points at the side of the road and just thoroughly enjoyed the moment. Wind, Earth, Woman, Machine united in one moment. I’d reached that true “biker”. moment...just enjoying the ride. Life. My man. My bike. My presence in the Universe. Overwhelming gratitude for all of it. Shaking myself out of my moment of mysticism and back into current reality, I did manage to grab a photo of the major monuments from the backside as the road curves around and away from them. At this point, it was 3:00 or 4:00 in the afternoon and Jeff and I were in the mood for a cold beverage a little stronger than water and Gatorade. We rode up to Mexican Hat in search of a frosty, cold one. We forgot that, in Utah, beers are few and far between and bars are even scarcer. However, we did get to see the rock formation that the town is named for.

We did manage to find beers and decent steaks at the Cottonwood Steakhouse in Bluff, UT before seeking accommodations in Monticello for the evening. For a 300-mile day that would have taken 5 hours by car, we managed to stretch it out into an 11-hour day stopping frequently to wonder at the world around us. No matter how many or how few photos I managed to capture, Monument Valley was unforgettable. Just as you think you’ve completed photo ops for the moment, heading north from the valley, you start climbing a long hill, probably one of the most photographed in the nation, as it turns out you’re heading right for Forrest Gump Point. The name of the point comes from the movie, Forrest Gump, where Forrest stops running after 3 years, 2 months, 14 days and 16 hours. Of course, I had to photograph that too!

Pro Tip: Don’t let your Go Pro jump off your bike before the Grand Canyon!
