Dick and I will no longer be looking in the rearview mirrors of our Harley-Davidsons. After 24 years of riding over 120,000 miles, we are hanging up our riding gear. Sad? In many ways, of course. But the flip side is that we have seen plenty of this country from two wheels without one serious mishap.
Back roads give insight into much of the heart and soul of America—the good, the bad and sometimes the ugly. Among our most memorable riding miles, however, were those through our great national parks, especially in Colorado, Idaho, New Mexico, Wyoming and Montana. It has been an experience to be treasured.
