I knew you were in good hands with Sonny. He just has a way of making everything feel so natural and right with the world. I hope you did not get into any bad weather. I took the Explorer to Dallas to get the panniers, top box and driving lights added along with the 500 mile check. It absolutely poured down all the way there and back. At least now I know how it handles in the rain and where all my riding gear leaks. Again, thank you for coming to see us and we will surely be talking about your visit for years to come. Say hello to the wife and kids for us and ride safe. Don't be surprised if Sonny comes up to get your Buell.
Thanks Jim.

The honor was mine. Travelling solo, a guy gets used to his own company,and sometimes tired of it :) Meeting and getting to know people like you and Sandra is, for me, what travel is all about.

When Sonny went back towards home, and I headed west, I got to Seymour and it had started to rain. It was getting quite late, and I was unsure how late the sun stays up around here, so I got a room, having heard from reliable sources that it didn't usually rain for long in that part of Texas. This morning it was still raining, and I rode in some pretty heavy rain for a few hours. I just thought it was normal heavy rain until I saw the news tonight :)

I am curious. Which panniers did you go with?

And, you know, If Sonny comes up for the Buell, it might be a good excuse for all of you to ride up for a visit..........

Day 13 Sept 29 616 kms Seymour TX to Santa Rosa NM

It had rained all night, and it was still raining this morning. I put on my rain gear and went out to check the bike over and tighten the chain.
I packed all my gear, and went out to load the bike, but it had started raining harder so I went back in to wait for it to let up a bit. I continued to check and at one point I met some oil workers who had come back to the motel as their job site had been rained out. By about 9:00 AM, it hadn’t slowed, so I packed the bike and headed down the road.




The original plan was to head towards New Mexico on secondary roads, but, while waiting for the rain to let up, I checked the weather report. Amarillo was reporting overcast but not raining. I asked the motel guy the best way to get to Amarillo, and he told me to take 283 to Vernon and get on the freeway heading west. He then suggested I take the Farm to Market road 1919, as the traffic would be lighter. So away I went, in the rain, visibility just about zero.

He was right about the light traffic on FM 1919. It was about 40 miles to the intersection of hwy 70, and I saw 2 pickups the whole way. I worked my way west, in the rain, and it wasn’t letting up. I headed up hwy 6 towards Quanah, hoping the rain would slow down.

No such luck. I got onto the main hwy at Quanah and rode west, in the rain. I stopped in Childress to eat and pick up a couple of things.I needed a new cord for my iPhone, and went into an elecronics store to see if they had one. It wasn't that kind of store, but the guy said he had a spare one, and gave me a new, official apple product, phone cord, and wouldn't take any money. I like Texas!




Everywhere I stopped, people were commenting on the rain, and telling me to ride carefully in the rain. ( my whole time in Texas, pretty much everybody I talked to, when they said goodbye, told me to “Be Safe” J )



By Amarillo, it was down to just a drizzle. I continued down the road, and when I hit New Mexico, the rain had stopped and it was warming up.

New Mexico


I got into Santa Rosa, got a room, and went for some pretty good Mexican food.

On the way to supper.



I watched the news later on, and the rain was wreaking havoc all over Texas.

Weather Prophets

So much for reliable sources and local weather prophets. You should know better than to trust weather men and especially the ones that ride motorcycles. Sorry about the bad weather but I know how it feels. As for the bags, I went with the Triumph brand and I am already wishing I would have followed my own advice and purchased the Zega Pros or Trax. Too late now, too much money tied up. Surely I will learn to like these. Just suffering a little buyer's remorse right now. I do hope the weather holds for you now. It looks good on TV. Ride safe.

Pretty hard to guess the weather. I have ridden in way worse, and at least, even when its raining, its warm in your part of the world. :)

I took a look online at the stock bags. They look pretty fricken good. I would think they will be great.

Weather going west looked pretty warm, so I headed North into the mountains. Supposed to be warm til I get high up, and then only cold when I am sleeping. Lets see if it works out that way. :)


Thanks, I will.

Day 14 Sept 30 547 kms Santa Rosa NM to Colorado Springs, CO

This morning, after watching Texas getting soaked on the weather channel last night, I figured I should check out the weather on my intended route. I had kind of half figured that I would work my way to Las Vegas NV, then up 93 to Twin Falls Idaho, and work my way back to BC. The internet said hot in Vegas. Real hot, like 100 degree hot for the next few days.

So I loaded up and headed North for Colorado.

I headed up hwy 84 to Las Vegas NM ( not hot) had a bit of breakfast, and headed North on 25. Hwy 25 is mostly freeway and so I took it easy in the slow lane, enjoying the changing scenery.

I pulled into a place for gas, and noticed a bunch of guys, all wearing matching red coveralls and matching handcuffs and leg shackles, standing beside a green prison van, watching me as I got gas. I nodded in their direction….. and they just kept on staring at me and my bike. I needed to go inside the store, so I parked my bike, and had to walk past the van to get to the main door. As I walk by, this good sized fellow in red coveralls asks “What year is that FLH?” So I tell him and we get to talking bikes. Turns out he has a 1969 FLH which he tells me he is really looking forward to getting back on soon, as he is almost “Done with all this.” And holds up his handcuffs and smiles. We talked bikes for a bit more until his security detail told him it was time to get back in the van. (the rest of his group had been in the van and ready to go for a bit.) He seemed like a pretty nice guy, all things considered.

I didn`t ask what he was in for J


Inside was a restaurant and souvenir shop…. and…. old cars







I continued on my way north, stopping here and there for a look around.

At a rest area


I pulled into Walsenburg CO for gas, and took some time to look around.

Cool old courthouse


Cool old buildings


Cool old motorcycle


It was still pretty early when I pulled into Colorado Springs, but I was feeling pretty beat, so I grabbed a room and went down to hose off some of the road grime from riding in the rain.

Day 15 Oct 1 388 kms Colorado Springs, CO to Wheatland WY

I dicked around this morning, got gas and headed North on hwy 25. It wasn’t overly warm and, as I got a late start, the intention was to make a mile, hoping it would warm up down the road. I got about 10 miles, and saw a sign for a mining museum. Colorado and mining? Sounds good, and I took the off ramp to the museum.

The staff was real nice, but when I made a joke about jackleg drills, they didn’t get what I was talking about. I guess you don’t have to be a miner to volunteer in a mining museum J

It was set up pretty nice, and had lots of cool exhibits. Lots of stuff from the “steam engine” era.



Predecessor to the “jackleg”




Engineering office



Assay Lab


I wandered around outside, and checked out some of the bigger equipment

Steam Shovel


You could fit 2 of these into a modern Shovel bucket

While I was outside, I got talking to Tom, a fellow with a long history with the museum, but had only been volunteering for a short while. He was quite interested in my bike and wanted to check it out.

We got talking, and I told him I was from Canada and had worked in underground and surface mines for about 20 years. He was quite excited about that, and we started talking mining. He got the key and opened up the Stamp mill and took me for a look around


Stamp Mill


Water Wheel (they used high pressure water to generate electricity)


He introduced me to Brad, the curator ( I think) of the museum, and we talked mining some more.

When I hit the road, the sun had come out and it was warming up slightly.

The traffic thru Denver was heavy, and moving fast. Denver is a lot bigger than I had thought. Fortunately I all I had to do was stay on the highway and try to avoid slowing traffic down.

I stopped at a rest area just North of Cheyenne, and while I was there, I checked my chain. It was stretching a bit, and I was about out of adjustment. I had robbed the chain off my chopper and for some reason or another, I had an extra masterlink on the chain (probably because my chopper needs a pretty long chain) The plan was that I could remove one masterlink if needed , and I figured this was a good time to do it.
I had quite a few people come to check on me to make sure everything was ok, and one guy even offered me a bottle of water, as it had warmed up to pretty warm by then.

I got it all buttoned up, and got on the road, and not long after that, the bike started missing. I pulled off on a long and lonesome stretch of highway to check the plugs.


Long and lonesome highway


The front plug was carboned up a bit, so I cleaned it up and pulled the rear (I have never actually had the rear out before ) and it was looking the same way. I cleaned it up, planning on buying plugs when I got a chance. I went to install the rear plug, and couldn’t get it started. I took a look and the threads in the head were a bit chewed up.

Crap

This doesn’t look good. I cleaned the threads up, got the plug to start, but it wouldn’t go in all the way. Not wanting to force it and screw the threads more than they were, I snugged it up a bit, veeerrryyyy carefully, put on the lead and it fired up. I asked a trucker who was parked on the other side of the highway how far it was to the next town. Not far, so away I went, slowly, with my left foot on the crashbar, keeping my leg out of the way, just in case. I went at well under the posted speed limit to Wheatland. I got a room and asked if there was an auto parts store nearby. At the store I asked for a thread chaser and plugs, and they were pretty concerned that the thread chaser wouldn’t be enough, and looked to see if they had the right heli coil. I told them, over and over, that the threads should clean up ok, and that I was less than excited about installing a heli coil with the head on ( and not all that crazy about pulling the head)

Finally, when they didn’t have the right heli coil, and after calling all over to try to find one, I told them I would take the thread chaser, plugs and some grease (to lube to thread chaser and catch any filings) and if it didn’t work I would come back and order the heli coil tomorrow. Nice guys, very helpful……. maybe a bit TOO helpful J

The threads cleaned up nicely, I installed the new plugs…. carefully…., and tomorrow I will install a safety wire (these things have blown plugs out before, on “un” messed up heads)

If it makes it home like this, (it’s an adventure, right?) I will pull the head and fix it properly with an insert this winter.


If it doesn’t hold together, well, I have a cell phone and a credit card………….. J

(I might just pick up a heli coil kit and headgasket as well, just in case J )

As before, you show a great attitude toward the "maintenance" of an old bike. Its all part of the adventure.

Thanks RecycledRS

I knew going in that it wouldn't be a "Breakdown free" journey.

When you ride an old bike, this kind of stuff keeps it interesting, But I think you knew that already :)

Hey Bri,
I've been following your RR in silence since your Buell trip. That was back when I sat and waited in envy. Now I'm doin it but still bury myself in other inmates' RRs. The Shovelhead trip? Awesome. I was hoping you were hanging out thru the winter down there so we could hook up. But I see you are prolly on the move north. The weather's crazy. It let up for me yesterday and I enjoyed a sunny ride around Cape Cod. My suggestion to you? Wait it out. I rode the worst crap thu Boston Interstates and I am determined not to do it again. Hope you find the good stuff again and safe riding.

BC Brian,
Thanks for the great RR. I'm a lurker here, I got introduced to this site because I know RTW Doug and I wanted to keep tabs on his adventures.
I saw your link in a post on Doug's Cannonball RR and followed it here. Good Show !! I ride old Harleys and have a real soft spot for those folks who aren't afraid to travel on old iron of any ilk.
It takes a special sort of person to accept the pitfalls and the maintenance rituals of the old bikes and I am having a great time following your adventure.
Thanks again for taking the time to photograph and document this trip.

Hey Toad

I just looked over to your RR. Looks good. I am on page 2 and will catch up when I can.

I am in Wyoming, headed for Montana, and they are calling for cold and wet tomorrow, and cold and white the next day. I guess I will go as far as I can and hole up for a while :)

I have lots of clothes, and can always buy more if I need to.

Day 16 Oct 2 431 kms Wheatland WY to Sheridan WY

The weather was supposed to be cool this morning, so I put my jacket liner back in, put on an extra shirt, went outside to load the bike, and it was quite warm out. Sweet. I kept the gear on anyhow, and headed north. The old bike was running good, no missing, so the new plugs must have solved the problem.

About 10 miles out of town, I could feel a slight miss again. Crap! As I carried on, the miss got worse. I stopped to check the points and timing. It all seemed OK.

Hmmm……. Works good when cold…. Misses when warm…….? Gotta be either a coil or condenser. I got a condenser with the points in Albuquerque, but I have heard of new ones being bad . I pulled into Douglas, WY, found an autoparts store, and asked if there was a place in town that sold Harley parts. Yep, Vinni’s body shop is a bike shop as well.

I head over there, go in, explain that I would like a condenser, and I might need a coil if that doesn’t work. Vinni hands over a condenser and new points, which were a better quality set than the ones I had, and he says he has a new coil……. somewhere, and starts looking around the shop. He can’t find it, so I tell him I will try the points and condenser, and if the bike is still have missing, I will try to find a coil in the next town.

I head out to install the parts, and after a bit, Vinni comes out, checks out my old bike, and we get to talking bikes. We talk as I work on the bike. He gives me a hand, and we talk bikes some more. I explain what it’s doing and he says “Coil.”

“Coil?”

“Coil! If it gets worse when the bike warms up, it’s probably the coil.”

He goes back looking for a coil, can’t find one, and says “I’ll ask my brother if I can borrow the one off his bike”, and away he goes.

He comes back and says he found a used coil beside his brothers bike and I can have if it works. It tests OK, so I pull mine.Sure enough, there is a crack in it. I install his, and the bike fires right up. Sweet!


We talk bikes some more, look at his bikes and some of the projects he is working on. I wash up, ready to make a mile, and we talk some more. I am finally getting ready to go, and as Vinni is walking me to my bike, his friend Brian shows up, and we start talking bikes, and the Buell chopper he is building, and I check out the customised touring bike he is riding (Niiiice). About 2 and a half hours after I met Vinni, I am on the road, with a bike that is not missing anymore. (it took about half an hour to install the parts J )

Vinni pointing out cool stuff on one of his bikes.


His friends cherry Knucklehead


Vinni owns “Vinni’s Body Shop” in Douglas Wyoming and does body work, custom bike work and repairs amongst other things. A great guy who does great work. If you are travelling through, look him up. If you are having problems he can help you out, and he is lots of fun to talk with.


By the time I am on the road, it is getting hot out. I have lots of clothes on still, and am really feeling the heat, even with the wind.

I ride through Casper, heading North towards Buffalo.

Sometimes I find myself delayed, not from meeting people, or not paying enough attention to the needs of an old motorcycle, but from not paying enough attention, period. While riding towards Buffalo, I pulled into the town of KayCee, WY. There was a sign saying no services for 35 miles, and although I had plenty of gas to make it, I thought I would top up anyhow. I pull into the gas station, a small, credit card only station with no store open. I put in my card, grab the nozzle, hit the button, no gas comes out. I am dicking around, push another button , the one far to the right near the nozzle, the most expensive one (I have been running premium) and start pumping. I fill the left tank, go to put the nozzle in the right tank, and get the feeling that something is wrong. You know when it’s not right, but you are not sure why. I stop, look at what I am doing….. why is there another nozzle on the same pump? Why is this nozzle green? Because it’s diesel, you stupid ass!!

Crap.

I push the bike off to the side, walk over to the general store a little ways away for a container to drain the gas/diesel into. They have no containers, but have gallons of water for a dollar. (cheaper than buying a container) not knowing how much fuel I have in the tank, I buy a gallon of water, have a drink and dump the water on the ground. I fill the bottle, go back to the store, buy another gallon of water, have a drink, dump the water, fill the bottle, go back, buy another bottle, drink, dump, fill. The third bottle is half full and the tank is empty. I stash the bottles in a safe place, fill the bike with GAS, and hit the road.



I ride the 35 miles to Buffalo, have a bite to eat and ride to Sheridan for the night.

It was hotter the heck in Sheridan when I got here. It’s supposed to cool off tomorrow and be downright cold in Montana for the next few days. We’ll see how THAT goes J

I am glad you are enjoying my travels. Old bikes are great, and wrenching them on the side of the road is half the adventure.

And everyday is a new adventure ....... LOL

I posted on Dougs RR because I thought it was so funny him joking about the Son's of Anrchy prospect patches. Then I googled it, and he wasn't joking. Go figure. That made it even funnier

Day 17 Oct 3 405 kms Sheridan WY to Livingston MT

The weather man was right. It had cooled off considerably over night. I put on lots of clothes and my rain gear over that, and headed out. The temperature was below 40F when I left Livingston, my knees and fingers were feeling a bit cool, but with all my clothes and being behind that big windshield I was feeling almost uncomfortably warm. Not to worry, though, I knew there was rain in my future.

By the time I hit the Montana border, it was raining pretty good. As I climbed in elevation, it got colder, and wetter. I went through fog. The nice thing about fog is that while your visibility is down to almost nothing, your visor gets all misted up and won’t bead up and roll off. After about 90 miles, just out of Hardin, as I was thinking “ this is stupid!!”, it started to snow.

I pulled into a Micky D’s for breakfast , to warm up and to google U-hauls. I had had enough




There was nothing available in town. I checked out motels to hole up in until the weather warmed up. There were a few, but by the time I had warmed up and had a full belly, I was feeling a bit more positive. It had stopped snowing, and the rain was down to a light mist. It wasn’t very far to Billings, so I thought I would tough it out and ride there, check out u-hauls, and if nothing else, I could stay there for a day or two.

The ride there wasn’t bad. It was only lightly raining in places, then the rain would stop for a while. The road went up and up, to where the fields were all covered in snow, then down and down, and there would be no snow. At the lower, “no snow” elevations it felt downright balmy.

I pulled into Billings, had the biggest hot tea I could get, and checked the weather reports and hwy cams. I figured I would carry on, play it by ear, stop lots to warm up and call it a day when I was too cold to carry on.

I don’t believe the temperature got much above 40F anywhere along the road, but there was very little rain, and when the sun would occasionally poke through, it felt pretty good. I was hoping to get as far as Butte, as they were calling for around 20F in the morning, and there were two mountain passes (both around 6,000 ft) that I needed to go over before Butte. If I didn’t make them this afternoon, I would have to go over them later in the day tomorrow, which meant getting a late start.

As I pulled into Livingston at around 4:00 pm or so, I was figuring if things went well I might be able to make Butte by 6:00 or so, and I came around the corner and saw this.



Hmmmmm

I pulled into town, went into an Arby’s for a large hot tea, and I was cold. Damn cold. I checked the hwy cams for Bozeman Pass, and it was pretty cold and snowy looking.

Right then, Livingston it is.

I got a room, turned the heat up high, got out of my cold, wet clothes and into a hot bath.

When I looked outside, it had cleared up, and if I had waited it out, I could probably have gone a ways further. But I was pretty happy in my warm room. J

A while later I went back to Arby`s for a bite to eat, and met Sebastian, a young German fellow riding his KLR around the US for 6 months or so.

I told him I was riding an old Harley and had come from Wyoming today. He gave me a kind of funny look, then looked at my running shoes and jeans. I smiled and told him I had already packed it in for the day and had a room.

Turns out he had camped in a state park about 100 miles away, and when he woke up at 3:30 PM ( I didn`t ask why he slept to 3:30 PM) his tent, bike and the roads were covered in 3 inches of snow. He told me he was heading over to Bozeman (about 30 miles, over Boseman Pass). It wasn`t raining anymore, and he seemed to have really good cold weather gear ( he said he needed grip warmers J) I told him to be careful and ride safe and away he went.

If you are reading this Sebastian, it was nice to meet you and I hope you have a great (and warmer) journey.
