On the road again…

We are back… Its time to leave these two little cuties, Charlie and Cory, (a couple of my favorite photos) and head back for LA.           Charlie                                                 […]

A day in San Fransisco, then back to LA

So today we put on our tourist hats – first it’s a boat trip to Alcatraz Then off to Pier 39 on Fisherman’s Wharf for some fresh fish for lunch. There are a number of older Asian people going through the rubbish bins collecting plastic bottles – they get money for them in the States. […]

Bridgeport > San Fransisco, 441km

We backtracked a few km’s to visit the deserted gold mining town of Bodie.  Once the gold ran out the people left and because they were taxed on what goods they were carrying, they only took what they needed and left the rest.  It now has decades of dust over it . Some of the […]

Fresno > Bridgeport, 370km (Yosemite)

Today we visited Yosemite.  First we took a look at the Mariposa Grove and learnt a little of the history of the area. Then off to Glacier Point, such a stunning viewpoint on a perfect day.   Looking straight down… We are being followed 🙂 Yes Emily is there too, just can’t see her. We […]

LA > Fresno, 532km

  We had a bit of a tiki tour around LA taking in some of the sights, then picked up the Harley. And then there were three.. Left LA via the freeway over the mountains then turned off toward the Sequoia National Park. Never seen so many of these in one area before. Came across […]

Hesperia > Thousand Oaks, 212km > LA

We are meeting up with our son Jordan and Emily (his wife – our other daughter!) in LA so we calculated a bit of “just in case” time in our schedule so that if we had a hiccup along the way, we could still meet on time.  Have had no hiccups so that means we […]

Indio > Hesperia CA, 293km

  Today we rode through the Joshua Tree National Park, which is very unique in that it is really a desert. The terrain started like this… …then this “tree” was the main vegetation, then it stopped suddenly and … (Apparently the photos I edit still come out sideways on iphones and ipads – not sure […]

Phoenix > Indio CA, 519kms

Ooops hit the Publish button in error, before I had finished the post. Dwight, Eddie, and the team at Apache Motorcycles in Phoenix are top blokes.  Super friendly and go the extra mile. Charlie had his big 40,000km bike service, and I needed an oil change on my bike, so because they knew we were […]

Flagstaff > Phoenix via Sidona, 253km

Rode through the beautiful Sidona Valley.  Charlie accidentally found interval photos rather than video on his helmet camera, so some pics. It was so lovely being in the shade of trees again – have missed them through the desert canyonlands. Because of the recent heavy rains, which we missed 🙂 all the pull off areas […]

Kayenta > Flagstaff, 240km

  We booked in for a tour to go through Monument Valley – made famous initially from John Wayne cowboy movies and still used as film sets today.  Some pics… This guy does the John Wayne lookout pose at the end of the bluff. This girl was a real sweetie, a local Navajo girl who […]
