Friday morning we road out to Tortilla Flats.
Lots of nice bikes!
Lots of good folks!
Some amazing paint jobs!
Some fellow Triumphs around.
Lean and mean lane splitter!
We ate some lunch and had some coffee while checking out all of the bikes.
Lots of bikes with no front brakes. Being a dirt bike and mountain bike guy primarily I use mostly front brake. Not having one looks good, but I know I'd have a hard time with it!
Killer old seat and helmet. Raaaaar!
We decided to cut away from the group to do some more riding before the evening Chopper Wedding. Two choppers make it legal is a beautiful thing!
We road up the Beeline through Fountain Hills, to Rio Verde and over to Greasewood Flat. Then we road up to Cave Creek for some dinner. After dinner we road by my place to meet up with another rider Timmy and then over to the wedding!
Talk about a living room. ALL living rooms should have these features!
That was a long day of riding!
The next day we road downtown for some breakfast and then we checked out the beginnings of the Love Cycles show.
Very cool FXR!
We spent the rest of the day taking our time riding up to Cave Creek and out to Bartlett Lake.
It's amazing how the new rear tire and chain I threw on last week made the bike ride so much better!!!
After a quick stop at America's Taco Shop (Best Carne Asada in Arizona) and headed down to Love Cycles.
Making the AMF era look good!
The last time I dropped into Love Cycles Jeremiah was in a smaller shop, this new one is huge and is a beaut!
Love this air cleaner.
I've always liked the Galloping Goose MC patch. Partly because it's random and awesome and partly because I've always liked the Galloping Goose which was the name of the impromptu rail road in Telluride, Colorado during the mining days.
Not a catalog built or theme bike among them. Thank god.
Great weekend, TONS of riding and just enough exposure to motorcycles that I'm sure that 5 is the new minimum number of motorcycles to have!
A modern cruiser for 2-up riding, a sporty bonneville for the corners, a clap trap death trap leaking old rigid chopper, a lightweight dual sport and a long range dual sport. At least anyway.
