A Brutale kicking ass the way an F4 doesn't

I have a 2010 F4 but my Brutie is the apple of my eye. I just came across these photos from my 4k mile trip in 2009 and thought I'd share.

Little guy warms my heart.

Amen, brother! BTW what lake is that? It looks familiar...somewhere in the Rockies?
Here's me in Utah a year or two ago...

Another trip this fall I hope!

That is Bow lake in Banff National Park, Alberta. If you've never been up there to Banff/Jasper I highly recommend it. Truly awesome.

The color of the lake is from the rock "flour" that the glaciers grind off the rock as they move.

nice to see someone riding a brutale the way it should be riden, good on you - respect.

would be interested in finding out more about that 4k trip, weve done 30+ states in usa and 4k+ road trips around usa but want to explore canada next

any info you have on route and stop overs would be gratefully appreciated
also if anyone has driven - "Fairbanks to Florida" I would be gratefull of info, there was a big write up a few years back in national geographic regarding this road trip but I cannot get a copy of this.

if anyone has the time to PM it would be fully appreciated.

again nice thread and nice pics of the trip.

Here is the first part of the journey

Second is here.

This is pretty much the exact route, minus the side trips around town. I'll add commentary tomorrow about the highlight roads, towns, etc.
