Learning Curves is Ready to Rumble

Wow, four National Parks and two National Monuments in four days. We are so excited about this new route for the Grand Circle that this ride will be repeated two times next year. We will do this ride as our Smiles for Life benefit ride July 16-20, 2013, with Steve Anderson as our guest clinician. Our second ride, October 8-12, 2013, will be in the peak of the fall colored leaves with Gordon and Rella Christensen as our guest clinicians.

  • Day 1: Flying into Salt Lake City and shuttling to Provo the afternoon or evening of Day 1, you will find a comfortable room at the Hampton Inn reserved and waiting for you for this first night.
  • Day 2: We will pick you up at your hotel for our ride to Timpanogos Harley Davidson where your 2013 Harley will be waiting this morning. We travel south east out of Provo over the Wasatch Mountains and into red rock country of Southern Utah. After lunch we ride through Capital Reef National Park to our hotel for the night at the base of Boulder Mountain.
  • Day 3: Our morning ride takes us across Highway 12 as it crosses Grand Staircase National Monument. This highway is considered one or the most scenic highways in the U.S. We have lunch in Bryce Canyon National Park and then head south to the shore of Lake Powell at Glen Canyon Dam in Page, Arizona, where we spend the night.
  • Day 4: Our early start gives us the thrill of a one hour walk through Antelope Canyon on the Navajo Nation Reservation. This Canyon has been featured in National Geographic and Arizona Highways magazines and people travel from all over the world to photograph the beautiful sandstone formations. After Antelope Canyon, we cross Vermilion Cliffs National Monument on our climb to 8600 feet on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. After lunch on the North Rim, we head back north to Zion National Park where we spend the night.
  • Day 5: We travel again through Zion National Park and then head north again following the back roads of Southern Utah to reach Provo for our final dinner together and our last night before returning home on our flight out of Salt Lake City the next morning.

Your deposit of $1,000 holds your space on this ride and the balance of $3,500 (+ $490 for your passenger) is due 45 days before the ride. The total fee for this ride & dental CE is $4,990, including your passenger. Contact Angel today at info@Learningcurves.net and she will send your registration form..

I can remember the exact moment that I heard about the March 2011 quake and tsunami in Japan which killed more than 15,000 people. I was having breakfast in the Dominican Republic during one of our humanitarian expeditions there. I, of course, had no idea of the future effects on our west coast more than one year later.

I am sure all of you are aware of the tons of debris that are coming ashore on the beaches of our west coast. Did you know that a 2004 Harley Davidson Softail still wearing its Japanese license plate washed up on a remote beach of Graham Island in British Columbia?

The bike’s owner, Ikuo Yokoyama who lost his home and was struggling to rebuild his life, respectfully declined Harley-Davidson’s offer to return his motorcycle and requested to have it preserved in the Harley Davidson Museum in honor of those who had lost their lives in the disaster.

Be safe—

Roy

Bike Tip:
3 Tips for a Stop

On our tour of the Alps of Europe this past summer, one of our riders had the unfortunate experience of having the driver of a van that had stopped in front of him, decide to back up and ran right into his bike popping the tire and knocking him down. I suggest you consider the following three things when you pull to a stop behind another vehicle.

  1. Stop in view of a rear view mirror on the right or left side of the vehicle in front of you and stop toward the side of the stopped vehicle in front of you.
  2. Leave your bike in first gear with the clutch pulled in (of course) so you can make an escape if needed.
  3. Keep an eye in your rear view mirror for any on-coming danger from a vehicle coming up behind you.
