Hey Redman52, Yeah its an 83 500 with open pipes, I really do need to start my own post somewhere here, but not sure where it would fit best, quick summary, I left Fort Collins, CO five days ago, to move back to NC (my wife already moved there for a job). I first went to the Black Hills in South Dakota (and Strugis) Then headed across Wyoming to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. Now I'm heading south to the grand canyon were I'll turn east and head to the gulf coast and then to North Carolina. I could be a little crazy but having a blast so far!

Yah, interesting to think of peoples reaction to that question.

Yep, am trying to enjoy simple things.

We spent 3 days at grand canyon and just stopped at Zion for a couple hours (on route north to Yellowstone/Tetons). Should have done the opposite.

Not a sunset photo, but i thought you might enjoy it. I may have lost feeling in my hands riding to take this picture, but it was worth one more ride.

I love the look of bikes in the sunset, but I can't do it myself. My eyesight no=t being what it used to, makes it hard to see where I'm going. I can't see thru a face sheild or my glasses worth a darn in the dark. I don't ride or drive anything at night anymore if I can avoid it.

Sorry to hear that. Would be a problem in that is dark after sunset.

So, everybody, post up sunset bike pics for Mr. 1996shadow.

3P,

Yah, is good place for photo. (Note to everybody else: that is about 10 feet from place of some of my pics in original posting).
Yah, nice pic, Sun at real low angle makes interesting shadow of shadow. Look like maybe just an hour before would get color of sunset. And that half hour probably an other 5 degrees colder, and then maybe 5 more before get home

Thanks for posting pics.

Yah, I was going to go for ride Sunday afternoon also, about 40 degrees.
Did go Monday, with sunset at about 5:30. 38 degrees. Chaps, heaviest gloves.
Was going for sunset picture of bike on dock at riverside park on grand river. But found that docks had been removed.

Very nice pics! It's dark out when I leave work so no sunset pics from me. I could try on the weekends though.
