West of Denver, CO in early June.
not so bad, no big deal weather-wise
Made it to Wagontire and got a room for the 1st and only time (so far).
just startin' to snow?
fuked we are! we are supposed to ride 250 miles of dirt to our reservation at a guest ranch in Nevada this day. There is no way to make that trip with snow on the rocks without big lights on the bikes 'cause we'll be riding at night for sure.
hey! I have one like that!! - Same road, too
Just outside Lake Havasu City, AZ about a week ago.
Literally 5 minutes after this pic was taken there was an inch of snow on the ground and it was continuing.:eek1
trying to figure out where the heck we were (some where in eastern Washington)
Central Oregon (Christmas Valley)
Minnesota - 2006
Same storm - I found cover
Blue Ridge Parkway a month ago
Some cool pics in here. These are boring by comparison.
This summer, on I-40 going West, I rode into a nasty storm as I passed outta Flagstaff. It was full of lightning, dark clouds, wind, on again - off again rain, and an accident scene with an overturned semi, a crumpled minivan, and a body under a sheet. :eek1 Poor fella.
Just East of Kingman, I came out from under it, and I was thinking "Ha! Not a single lightning bolt came near me!". I watched this wall of rain consume the hills you can barely make out (couldn't stop in time to get a "before" pic, couldn't stay to get the "after" pic on the hills you can see):
Got almost to Kingman, entered sunlight, and pulled off to get some pics of the mess I had ridden through.
Where I came from (East):
As you can see, the storm was South of me. Unfortunately, I-40 turns south at Kingman, and I rode back into the storm a second time.
east of the lunar crater, this storm started chasing me
more of the same cell, further east, after just crossing hwy 318, on my way to pioche, nv where it finally caught me.......
Adamidaby Australia June 2006 chased me home - it won.
Argentina ,Patagonia route RN 40 just before the hailstorm
Transalp rental bike Buenos Aires
Morocco Feb 2006. When we crossed this we were a bit worried not knowing how deep it was... But we got through and it was as deep as my headlights on the Tiger..Good Fun..
Hard to do on tiny bikes too...
BEST PICS IN THE WHOLE THREAD!!! THANKS FOR YOUR LABOR!
We weren't on bikes, thank goodness! But Andy captured the following two shots from our hotel balcony at Cocoa Beach - we beat the storm by minutes!
The rest of our holiday pictures and movies can be seen at: http://www.torquemonsters.co.uk/usa2006p1.htm
It wasn't a biking holiday, but we did get to do some flying, in a 1928 Waco. I particularly enjoyed looping the loop
OK, so it isn't that impressive to look at, but that's a category three hurricane about 12 hours before the eye passed about 40 miles to the east.

If anyone's interested, I'll post "after" pictures, but there's no bikes stuck in mud or wimmin in bikinis so I don't think anyone cares.
