Hey Fast Ferris, when you get to Vegas again, give me a shout or PM.

This is a nice thread. In a few weeks I should have some pics to contribute. Me and my Sporty are heading out to Pensacola for a few weeks.

I grew up in Wisconsin, and I rode this old '46 Kuncklehead for over 17 years. It was a terrible rat for the first 4 years, then after some much needed improvements, was moved up to being just a rat.
Rode with a heavy mileage 1%er club for a short bit, but life and reality showed it's ugly head, so I had to turn that in. But I did get a few good cross-country rides in on 'er, and had some awesome times along the way.
Unfortunately, almost all the pics I took in those days were with an Instamatic, so they're small, cracked, and grainy. But there were a few that have survived to this day...like this one of me crossing the central plains of SD back in the late 80's...

I was young and anxious and traveled pretty light. Acouplea shirts and jeans, my leathers, my tool kit, tent and bedbag, and I was ready to hit it.
Some years later, I ended up in Oregon, and now I ride ANYTHING I kin get my hands on (why do you think I'm on HERE??)!!!...but I'm still playing with Harley's too.

In late '06 I rode from south-central California to South Carolina to Michigan to Indiana and back home, 8103 miles (13,041 km) over 25 days. I'll break up the adventure into bite-sized chunks.

This is basking in the fluorescent glow of my garage (and impending sunrise) moments before ignition. My friend "Gentleman Jim" Attebery is joining me, on his new FJR. He's just ridden down from northwest Washington State, so has a considerable head start for the highest-mileage trophy.

That's the very northern tip of Isabella Lake you see in the background, and the cozy little postcard town of Kernville (and the southern Sierra Nevadas) is a few minutes to the left of frame.

South Carolina (where my son Wade was stationed in the Army at the time) is about two and a half thousand miles beyond the mountains in the distance...



This is a tasty little piece of Historic Old Route 66 near Seligman, Arizona that escaped the wrath of Interstate 40. This bliss only lasted several miles, but was a welcome relief from the maelstrom that is the 'Slab. I used the word "pleasant" at the time to describe our ride along this portion of 66. Darn shame there's very little of it left:



We spent our first night on the road in this yurt at Fort Tuthill, part of Luke Air Force Base in Flagstaff, Arizona (Gentleman Jim is retired USAF and has "connections"...)

The yurt was huge, with two queen beds, a fridge, microwave, woodstove, and a glass dome through which we could watch the stars from our beds after it got more dark.

All this idyllic goodness, including an icy-cold six-pack of Corona from the campground mess, cost us a mere $16 apiece. Score!



Sunset on day two, at the KOA Kampground in Tucumcari, New Mexico. You can tell by the trees that the wind is absolutely screaming. Had to stake the tents down tight, else we woulda ended up in Minnesota. The upside was the wind kept the mosquitos halfway honest...


We found several more glimpses of Route 66 in Oklahoma. I thought this road sign was hilarious (and curiously arousing). A person would have to be pretty randy to go to all this trouble to sex-up a road sign, I'm thinkin.' Hope Gadget Boy doesn't send me to Jo Momma for this...:

Fast forward a week or so (I've spared you the monotony of a multi-day ride across the United States on Interstate 40), and then a few more days (you're not seeing the partying I did with my son at Fort Jackson (("Dad, I think I'm inebriated!" "Yes, Wade, you most certainly are." :-) ))), and here's me and some of my friends paying tribute to Mr. "Big Jim" Bantz:

Left to right: Fast Ferris (Cali, now Virginia), Oldog (North Carolina), JB2 (Indiana), Reep (Ohio), Henrik (New York), and Gentleman Jim (Washington), photo by Mikey (North Carolina).

Big Jim was killed on his Harley at this spot just outside of Franklin, North Carolina by a reckless kid on the run from the law.

JB2 is Big Jim's son, and was several minutes ahead of his Dad when the tragedy occured. Father and son were best friends, and had ridden many adventures together over the years. They never got to say goodbye to each other.

Mikey didn't know JB2 before that fateful night, but as a fellow rider he knew a brother was in pain and extended his wings and wrapped JB2 up tight, offering him shelter from the swirling storm.

They've since become the very, very best of friends. No, "friend" isn't enough. They are brothers thru and thru.

If y'all are interested, search for "Out of Words" here on ADV. It's an RR I did that means a lot to me, a grand ride around the country with JB2 several years ago wherein we both try to come to grips with suddenly losing our fathers. Thank you.


Patrick46, this ones for you, taken at the Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley, North Carolina:

I've seen a lot of stunning motorcycles in my time, but this is one of my all-time favorites, the Granddaddy of the Harleys we're all riding today. Sorry 'bout the pic quality - I wasn't liking was the flash was doing to my photos, so I went hand-held throughout the museum.


Just your typical cheesy tunnel picture on the Blue Ridge Parkway:



This is Henrik, JB2 and Gentleman Jim, getting all bleary-eyed (along with the photog) on Captain Morgan's at Bluffs Lodge, Doughton Park, Blue Ridge Parkway. You adventurers following along know what a special time of day this is, after a full, fun day on the road:



GMJ and I spent that night in our tents in the campground at Doughton Park, and this is a hasty shot early the next morning as my coffee water was coming to boil on my campstove. It was a little bit nipply, as you can tell by the glass face on the RK's speedometer:
