Alright!! It ain't over!
had one myself....(albiet a bit modifyed...)
Frikken rocket sled on rails, that one!! (and I've got the tickets and mugshots to prove it too!)
Go Doug, GO!!!
Not to interrupt you all singing the CHiPs theme, but The Vintagent has an interesting report on the Cannonball here:
Doug get's mention and a photo...
Well that was embarrassing, obviously I'm not a Belushi fan. But, I am a Doug fan, and appreciate his humor regardless of it's source, and still wishing him a safe ride home.
Pretty cool way to complete the adventure.
This is a great twist to an already excellent story! Ride on, Doug!
Too cool, and very appropriate, Doug. Start out on an ex-cop bike, and ride home on an ex-cop bike.
Why? Oh, I see, easy access to the tappets
Cool, the adventure continues: "Cop Bikes, then and now".
Wow! Doug hit every store in LV! What was ya searchin' for? I thought you would of been in Amarillo by now. I hope you found everything ya was lookin' for????? Ya got to be blowin' this town off soon! The suspense!!!!
those police handlebars were drivin me nuts. they came back too far, and I kept elbowing myself in the gut whenever I turned, so I went to a few bike shops looking for a different set. I ended up installing a set of MX bars. they fit me alot better, much easier to ride now.
Will also be handy if I decide to do some trail riding on the way home.
I needed some tools also, as the only metric toold I had with me was a cresent wrench & a hammer.
and a bag to put all my camping gear in, then I went down to the las vegas bike fest.
it was basically one of those chromosexual jamborees, bunch of stupid bikes you cant ride anywhere, aging hoochie mamas dressed like 20 year old strippers, and guys wearing sons of anarchy prospect patches.
not really my scene.
I was really disappointed tho, when I went to several souvenir shops, as this is sin city, I was hoping to find some funny official looking stickers for the bike, Vegas Vice squad, whorehouse inspector, or something similar to make the bike look more 'cop-ish'
I never did go to a casino. I'll start heading east today I think.
So, got a route in mind? The weather is still great in Colorado and I bet that 'Zed would love a blast up the Million Dollar Highway
It's gonna be like riding on cotton balls all the way home!
If you go 40 home, 93 to 40 watch your speed, California will let you go 78 in the desert, AZ will not let you go over the speed limit and the cops hide in the center divider. NM is pretty strict too. Don't want any f..ing performance awards. Have a safe trip, we will be watching!!!
I don't think Doug will have any issues with speeding.
I-40 across TX OK AR has got to be the most boring route in North America. Maybe a detour to Big Bend and then to Cajun country is in order?
oh - and I love the KZ!
someone is gonna get a speeding ticket ...
Hope ya have fair skys all the way home Doug suppose to piss rain for the next 2 days in north Mississippi
but with that tall windscreen ...you won`t get wet
Yeah, that's why I'm keeping away from smooth and fast.:dllama
