Death Valley Run Part 1

Fanch and Laura had dropped off their rental car and traded it in for some bikes here in sonora. After a quick test ride, we packed up the bikes and headed up and over Sonora Pass. A recent storm had
brought some snow, but now enough to keep the pass closed for our trip up and over.

On y va!

Waiting for construction to clear.

Passing the 8000ft marker

Have we been here before?

Came around the last corner of the pass on the east side, and saw these three C-130's dropping off parachuters. Pretty fucking cool

Almost to Marco...

'67 Shovelhead Sissybar Progress

Tapered down some half inch by half inch solid square stock in the little giant power hammer. Stuck it in the Forge to get the shape going for the sissy bar.

Bon Voyage Marco!

Marco's plane was almost air born at the same time as the plane that took Jonathan, Wolf and Brian back to California. He's here to enjoy the open road on one of the loaner bikes from Wolf.
After a couple of days to relax and get into the correct time zone, he was off. Jonathan was able to ride with him for part of the way over Sonora Pass.

Welcome to California, now lets sit in some traffic...

Finally to Sonora, first beer in the states

Getting loaded up

Stuck in traffic in the mountains?! Lots of construction going on before the weather changes

Adios Marco!

Our entire trip we were fairly lucky with the weather. Cold, but dry, we had brought just enough of California with us to make our trip on the bikes perfect. Monday morning though, leaving Luxembourg, our luck had ran out. We left Ed's in the rain, and it didn't stop until we had almost reached Liege. 

Traveling over the Ardennes was almost unbearable in the cold and wet. But we throttled on, and the rest of the trip was quite a bit warmer once we reached the Dutch border, but still just as wet. 

Bastogne, last picture of the day before we split off from Gilles and Angelo

Dinner at the Opmeer clubhouse

Next day sun in Hoorn with Beer and Brian 


Our last meal in Europe with Beer and Els and family. Another great trip in a bag, already can't wait to get back. Hope to see you guys all soon!
