    What is the deal with in and out burger? I tried it when I was in Ventura, CA this past June. Nothing special IMO. Now the fish tacos on the Ventura pier were awesome!
    Skill is what keeps you on two wheels.

    Situational awareness combined with skill is what keeps you out of harm's way.

    ATGATT combined with Situational Awareness and Skill means you might live to ride another day when that deer runs into your bike or that drunk blows through that stop sign.

    I got one word for ya… DUDE!

    That's what I want to do. Good vid. I was expecting some drama at 11:30 with the RV, but to no avail. And I thought magic power was going to be magic carpet ride over the side, but you hung on. And you did all of this solo- that's my kind of trip. Thanks for sharing.

    In and Out Burger. A group out of Denver make the run to Salt Lake City for In and Out. I thought, well heck. If it is worth the ride, over rated or not, I'd give one a try. Put one in Las Vegas as a way point to Death Valley,

    Yeah, the trip is solo. All of mine are. It is just that way. Certainly open to company, or accompanying someone. The cell phone recording the video was in my left hand. When I approached those edges, I simply moved the cell phone over to the side. No drama. Nothing to save. Funny though. During the editing, I kept looking over the edge with the monitor - until I got used to seeing it.

    @daddyflip, when I get my Africa Twin you come out with the Tiger 800 and do some adventuring. Plenty of passes in CO, and then over to Utah. That's my Spring 2016 plan. Alaska in July.

    That's a fine idea, Bubba. Unfortunately, the Tiger will be gone before that could materialize. MAYBE another ADV could replace it, but I doubt it. I'm a lot disenchanted with Triumph and a little with the ADV segment. My next bike will be named Connie if a girl; Harley if a boy.

    I've travelled solo, and with one or more buds. Both have there advantages, and disadvantages.

    Solo, you go when you want, stop when you want.

    Work through traffic without having to consider others keeping up.

    It is easier to have conversations with new and sometimes interesting people.

    Sharing awesome roads and scenery with others, evening conversations over a beer, aide and assistance on the road, safety in numbers, sharing costs are all advantages of riding with others.
