Errr, I think you missed the video and are only making things worse for yourself.

You don't know much about coyotes, do you? The only Photoshopping I know of removed some license plates/holders and poles for aesthetic purposes, and for which the author duly offered full disclosure. From reading his two threads, I 'know' Dennis to be insightful, talented, confident, and maybe even occasionally abrasive. "Intellectually dishonest" is not a description, however, that comes to mind.

The original moniker stands.

I have to stand by Trane on this one: not only do you not have much experience with coyotes, but particularly the ones in Death Valley/eastern California.

I've had them eating out of my hand before too. They're pretty desensitized to people, especially people with food.

You caught him. Thank you for being the smartest cookie in class.
And on behalf of the rest of the Kool Aid drinkers, thank you for not outing AH for really doing this trip on a KLR...and only banging fat chicks.



Though I am still kinda pissed at Dennis, between him & Vice it's next to impossible now to get a good piece of raw horse at what was my favourite charcuterie !
You can't swing a dead horse in there anymore without knocking off somebody's Wayfarer's, ugh.

Dilligaf... a fine name. This forum needs the ability to upvote posts. In the case of yours, multiple times.

It's cool. I'll send Loki by with the paperwork. (It's a stupid nick I've have for a very long time)

Just spent the last few days reading this adventure. Good stuff. Riveted to it to the point of having to be dragged away a couple times by my better half.
I was born in Detroit and it always makes me sad then angry when I see MSC and what's become of it. I'm old enough to have been in it before it was abandoned but it was still well beyond its hay day.
I'm trying to confirm but my cousin may have cooked one of your meals while you were there.
I wish I had caught this before you came through GA. I was actually in Savannah for work when you came through. Next time you make it out this way if your into aviation, the museum in Warner Robins is worth the stop. http://www.museumofaviation.org
It's funny how much bikes were apart of my parents lives till the 70,s and they have some incredible friends that have been wining racers and competed in events at Isle of Mann, held world speed records and even Dot Robinson that I was around as a child but how hard mom fought me getting a bike that it wasn't till this year I did. It took a wake up call that included a jump start and three stents for me to stop living to please others.

I managed to get to the Barber Vintage festival this year and it's hooked me in the same manner as it did you. What an amazing place.

Dreaming of taking off for a few weeks this spring after the read. It will be to my wife's surprise I may be sitting on Key west on New Year's Day if my wheel bearings get here in time. Eventually I'll get her out on it. lol

Dude, that's your mom and dad?



No wonder she didn't want you getting a bike....she herself knows how much adrenaline runs through your blood!

(Speaking of family, I'm guessing your cousin works at Slows?)

Loved this RR and particularly liked the clarity with which you write with when talking about the realities and revelations you found on the road. A little polishing to smooth out the edges we can develop in life.

No that's Joe and Alma at the isle tt.
Mom uses stories about Bob (who now owns the Ducati Triumph dealer in Detroit) crashing at 274 mph on the stream liner triumph. He crashed trying to get the title back from Don Vesco and big red, the stream liner you probably saw at Barber on the top of the wall in the basement. Some how That was relatable to the street. She does have a good high side story where she about ripped the back of her calf off and has some good scars from that. Was a couple other wrecks she and other members of the club were in. Dad managed to total a pickup in Macon ga in 61 on his 58 beemer. Folded the bars around the head light.

I'm trying to get the 61 BMW back that replaced that bike back. Mom sold it in 83 to keep me off it. This is that bike when it was for sale 1.5 years ago. John still hasn't got back to me about it so the current owners must not be ready to sell.

This is another of my dad's old bikes it out near you now. The top pictures my dad took when the day he bought it.

Cousin:

The place you got the salmon after Cranbrook. Cuz has posted pictures where he plated simular. He's now the executive chef at John D Bistro. Hasn't got back to me to tell me if he made that.

You should have hit the Henry ford museum while you were there they have Edison's actual workshop there. It's pretty cool.
Here is a site with a lot of Detroit history in if you get board. Like Detroit, it's in decay and half working and hard to navigate. Lol
