Retirement in 2020 brought about some changes in RHG’s stable of motorcycles. Adding to the desire for changes, was the closure of Heritage Harley-Davidson. The 2017 HD Road Glide was traded for a 2018 BMW K1600 GTL. Off to Colorado to Raw Hyde Training we went. The following year I’d return to New Mexico, Colorado and then on to Wyoming on my BMW R1200 GS. That ended with a 2 1/2-day ride in an U-Haul truck home. My last ride on the BMW K1600 GTL would be in early November to Tennessee. That ride would be the coldest trip ever. Sometime after that as we looked forward to planning a 2022 adventure, both Cheryl and I would land at a decision to go back to our Harley Davidson touring routes. Thanks to Harley Davidson Shop of Rochester that transition materialized. While I miss Heritage H-D and am still bothered by that “corporate outcome” …. all the the folks at Rochester were excellent. They ARE my new H-D “go to” home.
This was not really a planned thing! Returning from my November trip to Tennessee we began to talk about 2022 travels. Truth was we decided we missed the GA touring ride – especially for two up. More of the story to follow.
While I was cataloging videos from my trip, I was amazed by the pre-dawn and sunrise videos from my unplanned trek back across the Trail Ridge Road @ RM NP. This is a snap shot of that amazing early morning ride

We have been going to Nashville for a number of years. Starting when Brett was deployed to Afghanistan and based in Fort Campbell Kentucky. For the past few we have been visited Nashville during the Christmas season. This year we returned to see Vince Gill and Amy Grant’s Christmas show at the Ryman. The Ryman is mystical. This video is a collage of our day and night strolls – it can not do Nashville justice. Sorry for the length and the need to delete the audio – however, copywrite issues must prevail in this case.
