    Nice to see the Harleys being used for what they are best suited. Sightseeing:thumbup Here's a couple of pics with more to follow of places I've been. Judging by the pics already posted there is much more out there for me to see. Great thread!

    I have 43,000 miles on my 'old friend' and it still looks new. Every time I think about buying a new one I feel guilty about abandoning this one.:D
    I'll post a Mexico report for the Harley guys but it will probably seem mundane to the dual sport guys.
    Here's me and 'OF' in Rock Springs Wyoming last year.

    Stu I think you miss the point, may have something to do with that 'lepoard skin pillbox hat' you wear, or maybe you been riding sewing machines too long. I think I'll belly up and smoke some of what 'round i GO' has!:bubba

    In the past 3 years I have logged just under 70k on my 07 Dyna.
    covered 10 states and as far as Mitchell SD for a car show. (good excuse as any) Many 500 miles "day" trips. Went to Price UT this year for a car show, took the long way back.
    One day, I woke up and had wanted to go to San Diego. could not get anyone to go with me, so I left my house in Glendale, AZ and went to San Diego, never been there before, armed with only a map, off I went. Came home the same day. Had a blast.
    This year, Yellow Stone and Mitchell SD. Yup for a car show.

    on the outs with the german and rice ' we defined it ' crowd... and then gettin the same from the moco crowd too. Now that's really being on the outside lol.
    Took my vrod up to Sturgis earlier this year. It is turbo'd and loud, so definately got the textile crowd scowlin, though they stay outta Sturgis for the most part.
    But the water buffalo 'chick bike', get's the blank stare from the brothers too... until you spool it up that is. Then, the heads spin and the smiles start. Oh Yeah.
    The best part of the ride was being pulled over by Wyoming's finest running about 90 ( a safe 90 ). The SP was so cool, gave me a warning, but talked about the bike for half an hour. I finally had to beg off, as the sun was setting, and the back country had way too many white tails coming down to graze the highway boundaries.
    Great thread!

    Is that a one-hump Harley or a two?
    Do you have a ride report of that ride posted some place?
    Seems like an epic journey.

    Hi guys,

    answering the last question: Yes, it was an epic journey. But the link in my signature is a site about winterriding, when we got to Murmansk in Russia for drinking some wodka. It was in winter, when temperatures where about minus 30 degrees Celsius.
    The Harley-ride is on www.project-yesterdays.de
    The rig is homemade with a rigid frame and a 1200 cc Sportster engine. I was 7 weeks on tour in morocco. First I did some rods that were only open for 4WD-vehicles. Later we went down to the tropic cancer in Westsahara, were the Polisario fight for independance. Sorry I´ve no english text on the journey itsself, but on the page there is an english text of building the bike (http://www.project-yesterdays.de/html/yesterdays-gespann.html scroll down a little bit) and talking about my philosophie for doing this ride.

    [​IMG]


    From this adventure in Germany was published a 144-page book that could be translated like Project Yesterdays - a time journey with motorcycles. The pic shows my friend with is Royal Enfield combo with some problems in the sand. Also we made a 75 minutes film - but it is in european PAL-format.
    Some more pics I´ll post in the near future.

    Salam aleikum

    First of all here is a link to the video-trailer of the "Project Yesterdays" - journey, about 2 minutes. (Sorry, but I think the embedding function doesn´t work or I don´t know how to do.
