Holy frack, that's 64 MPH average.
That's rollin' you freak.

You gunna make it to San Francisco?
I'll PM you my cell if you are.

Thanks! Time kept me from san fran and the rest of the USA I'd "like" to visit, I bolted from LA to Phoenix tonight and got in at whatever time zone this hour is.  I'm going to visit friends here, run the cave creek twisties, and figure out a back roads way to see friends in Dallas from here and have some mesquite smoked brisket. You're more than welcome to join me on this venture too!

Someone from Phoenix in a thread posted "look me up when you're in town" and i can't find the message in the threads anywhere.  Would like to ride with you this evening if you're into it, can you please send me a PM if you see this?  Thanks!

Let me know when you're coming through the Phoenix area - I'll buy you a cold bevie! Just so you know though, it's HOT here too. Officially 118 yesterday, but my thermometer here at the house saw 120.0 for the high  :o. Be safe - there's a lot of kooks out there!

Thanks Brent - I missed it :(     Finally saw my special friend Tami and spent time with her this afternoon/night. After having some desert fun.

Phoenix is among my favorite places. Sometimes you don't have the right tool.... errrr right bike for the job.  I did the best I could with the Concours14 ADV style.

Finally on the right side of the Mississippi


I know i'm back in the south, missed these out west!

Just read the thread thru...very interesting. Had to laugh at the pic of the Australian chap with "Notes To Self" on his dash:

They must ride/drive leftside  in 'Strilia!!

Dang Steve! I haven't kept up on the thread until today. Looks like I missed you coming through Phoenix. I worked about 70 hrs. last week so time would have been thin in any case. Too bad Joe's BBQ was closed. You must have hit it late in the evening or something. Not much happening in downtown Gilbert after dark! I only live about 4 or 5 miles from that place too.

Still interesting seeing your trip report along the way. I'm thinking a large percentage of us are quite jealous of your adventure - I know I am.

Vicksburg MS River Bridges (my home town).  Wondering if Steve is doing casino buffets after all that I-20 slab.

Dude, sorry i missed you in Phoenix too. I couldn't find the thread while i was there, for some reason I thought it was in PM and then it was too late.  Tami and i killed 'em on the blackjack tables at Talking Sticks indian casino in Scottsdale!

***Returned to Tampa after a 7006 mile bike ride. It was incredible seeing relatives and friends, mountains snow, desert tundra, valleys, plains, canyons, badlands, grasslands, and finally the FL sea again. Thanks again to the folks that met me and Rick Hall and Stavee especially (helped me with the plug).
