I found a really clean 1992 Yamaha TDM850 on ADVRider in December of 2008.  Since the bike was located in Salt Lake City, and me in Florida, I immediately started dreaming of a fly & ride.  As you can see by the picture below, the weather in December in SLC wasn't conducive to riding, so I was able to work a deal with Glenn, the seller, to keep the bike for me until April when the weather would be better for a ride, and the plan was hatched.  Following is the story of my journey, the places I stayed, and the people I met.
