This is a 7000 mile trip through the western United States on my 1999 BMW F650 motorcycle. It took me 4 weeks starting on May 7, 2006. It fulfills my long time dream of taking a solo long-distance motorcycle journey. My plan was to ride from the Rio Grande River to the Canadian border and back, exploring the best motorcycle roads and visiting as many national parks as I could. I have flown over the western USA many times on business trips, but only rarely have I seen anything but big cities and ski resorts. This is my journey to see America.
