Pissed Coffee At Dawn, New Mexico.

So, I'm trying to make the most of my time in New Mexico. I'll be here for a few more months, but since I only have a Triumph Bonneville with me I'm trying to hit up all the tarmac rides I can!

Oh yah, I tend to get a little lazy and put more pics up on my blog than I do on the forums.

Heard about this meetup on Sundays from another rider while up in Angel Fire, NM doing some exploring/camping. Basically, it's a Sunday morning excuse to go ride, shoot the shit, drink too much coffee and stare at bikes. Here:
Given the population of little Albuquerque I'm pretty surprised by the rare bikes I've seen there in the mornings. I'm not surprised, given my experience in this state so far, that everyone there are good people.

So enough talk. Here is a video of cruising up the Sandia Crest near the coffee shop. Up to almost 11,000 feet. Saw deer, turkey and a skunk. They must be freezing their asses off up there because I know I was!

Great looking CB750!

A good looking Trident. He puts some miles on this one. Two-up even.

Gorgeous Norton. Built by a company out of Colorado. It. Was. Just. So. Damn. Clean! Whomever restored it just does amazing work!

Even the odd car is allowed here or there!

More cafe love.

This fella road along with his dog. Best passenger ever. No complaining! I think it was a 51 Panhead with a 48 Side car. All rebuilt, by him. I really respect something about folks who do the work themselves, but even more so it tells me about the type of folks that live in this area.

May we all be well into our 70's and riding insanely fast motorcycles...

This old Honda just reminds me of a time when dirt bikes where about putting along and seeing the sites. Not that I don't love my KTM.

A Vincent White Lightning. Prettier than a black shadow? I think it might be.
Either way, sex on wheels.

Can't get enough of the Vincent.

Parilla race bikes. Wow. I still don't hear quite like I should after hearing these start up.

Here is a video of one of them starting.

A nice rebuilt Indian Scout.
A little modern and a little old. Maybe a good daily rider?!

Nice bumble bee GS.

This nice bolt on hardtail Triumph bobber was also built locally. Nice guy and a great looking bike. Oil tank was an expansion chamber off of I can't remember what. Gold leaf paint was real. Nice bike!

There was even a CBX there. Pretty cool! I really dig this bike! All 6 cylinders of awesome.

Well, being in New Mexico, it's time for the obligatory shots of the Balloon Fiesta which happened a couple weeks ago.
Here we go...
Far away.

Getting closer.


Elvis and Lion are buddies.

Wheel chair moto.

Okay, This is the last one.

Until next time.
