This weekend in the UK, one of Europes bigger shows is happening. Full on party, with the best bikes from all over Europe, and put on by Andy, who is a great guy to begin with. Support your chopper community!
Hond came by with his wife for a quick visit. They have a HUGE rv that they are driving around California visiting all the cool spots in. They stopped by Sonora for a night and joined us all for Mexican food at our house. A little international biker meeting eating tacos and test driving motor homes!
An hour from home, in the heat of the day, some wires finally wore through the edge of my oil bag and put me in my tool bag for the first time of the trip. In the heat of the day, it was hard to be happy that this was my only break down.
Back on the road and in the heat
The rest of the guys left a couple of hours after I did. Their ride was shorter but much hotter.
Finally we have some new stuff in the store. If you did't get you 10 Year shirt while you were at the party, or you didn't make it, we finally have some for y'all. These are designed by Mitch Cotie, and are a front design, with pocket, and large print on the back.
We also have an updated Addiction shirt. These were done quite awhile ago, but we never got around to getting them printed up. So here you go!
As always, thanks for the support, see you on the road!
It was that time of the year again, when we all headed up to that small town on the feather River Canyon called Belden. This year though, that heat was insanely bad. No break from it, no matter how Highup in elevation you went. All of California had succumbed under this blanket of hot air. Either way, the road called, and we headed north.
Its that time again. One of the last big rides before the winter hits. Our friend Butcher from Germany is putting on his run again, 9-10 September. Check out his blog for more details. http://1000-hills-run.blogspot.com/
Most of you are probably looking at this and thinking, "what the fuck is he talking about?"
So back in 2012, on my first trip to Europe on this bike, while in Holland, Beer and Wicky took me to the Zuiderzee Museum. Basically Holland as it was 100 years ago. They were making their own rope there, and I grabbed some and made a stop for my clutch lever. This piece of rope outlasted a lot of steel parts on this machine!
And when I returned to Europe in 2014 with this bike and rope, both Wicky and Beer laughed at that piece of rope, until I told them that it was authentic Dutch history! Ha. Then of course they thought it was cool.
So who knows how many miles, rainstorms, border crossings and gas stops this thing has seen since it first got attached.
