Our last day took us from Show Low to Flagstaff. This area is so rich in American history.

Along the way we passed the Dry Lake Wind Power Project outside of Holbrook, AZ. This is the first and largest wind farm in the state of Arizona, and it's on Navajo land.

We passed by so many of the iconic Rte 66 locations made popular by the Disney movie cars.

I'm surprised at all the little places like this that survived the demise of Rte 66.

Had lunch at this diner, which is decorated with running electric trains, and overlooks the train tracks that run along I-40.

Those blue skies and puffy white clouds gave way to heavy dark grey skies as we rolled out of Flagstaff. The trip down I-40 became wet. By the time we hit Needles it was clear and 88 degrees. That's about the coolest I can recall Needles being when I pass through. John and I spent the night in Barstow, before heading home on Sunday.

I stand corrected,...the most expensive gas was NOT in Needles, but in King City, off the 101.

I made it home at little after 4pm. The bike was filthy, and I wouldn't have had it any other way. All in all another great trip.

Here are some useless stats.

Longest day: Show Low to Barstow, 490 miles.
Shortest Day: Sedona to Grand Canyon and back, 220 miles.

Best fuel consumption: 44mpgs Sedona to Grand Canyon to Cameron. Running at posted speed limits at elevation.
Worst fuel consumption: 31mpgs Needles to Barstow. Running 90/95mph across the desert floor.

Best meal: Dinner at the Elote in Sedona.
Worst meal: Lunch at Hanagan Meadow.

Thanks for letting me share this with you, thanks to all the new friends I made this trip.

Looks like everyone had an awesome time!

Thanks for taking the time to write up the ride report!  I have always found these to be helpful in planning journeys and seeing places under a different set of eyes.
