Honda VTX 1800

Also, know as RED or mama's bike. Husband purchased a new bike for the two of us to ride. I like to call it RED, because that way I don't have to know all the special things about it. The girls call it mama's bike because dad has an orange bike. The KTM is in the process of being sold.

This is the first trip with the both of us and another couple. We started early in the morning and the final stop Pinetop-Lakeside, AZ. The first stop was in Payson for breakfast. The second stop was Bison Ranch. The third stop was in Showlow to put on the foul weather gear. From Showlow to Pinetop (about 15 miles) it poured down rain. The rain was a nice break from the hot temperatures.

We stayed at Mt. Haven inn (www.mountainhaveninn.com) in the garden room. It had 2 bedrooms, living area, full kitchen and one bath. It was a cute quaint place to spend the night.

The ride back to PHX start nice in the pines, then dropped to the desert. The hot was enormous as you entered into PHX. I think we may have to wait until November or December to ride again.

Sorry, the pictures are not the best. Our good camera is in the shop.
