Great post. When I saw the photos I thought it was possible one of your dad's riding friends on a 1950 H-D Panhead was my neighbor Jerry Vincent. He lives alone in a small log home, retiring here years ago from west Denver. I've thumbed through his photo albums looking at his Colorado off road and hill jumping exploits on a H-D. Rode often with friends and often off-road. Tells me of the time he took a Bultaco to the top of Mt. Elbert in the 60's. I'll ask Jerry if he ever rode with the name in the photos share here.

Book in the works
Hey all-

There have been so many requests for a book that we're gonna try to do it. I'll post here when we get some idea of how long it'll take. I'll also post information regarding the book on our website, www.rallytwin.com.
I would take at least two; maybe more. Maybe in time for next Christmas? Great gift idea!

You might consider t-shirts, too. Maybe with the picture on the front, and your web-site info on the back. I'd love to have one of that panhead jump!

If you're thinking about it, and need a resource, I know there's a place called cafepress.com that does on-demand printing for a number of small web-site operators.

Wes and Wayne, if you're going to publish a book, you should also add some of the pictures of your own adventure rides. IMHO, those are some of the most impressive photos that I've ever seen. You guys obviously take after Warren in that respect. Those two generations of photos would make excellent bookends to a fascinating family story of adventure riding exploits. Good luck with the book, and put me down for a copy when it's published. My coffee table needs some fresh material.
I'm in full agrement there,,I will say will be really cool to see the same place being use after many years of history and tecnology change,,of course "Land access" issues and progress will prove difficult but will be nice to try.

for example i love the two pictures of the Snow traverse ..

go at it,,maybe talk to King Baldy and we put it for sell here,,I ear the Baldy is a expert with books

NOTEid you see you have almost 60,000 viewings in about two weeks,that is a new record if you ask me

Hi Wes,

RESPECT about these pictures, what a dad.

I hope, my children will post my thousands of motorcycling pictures of me.

Since 20 years me and my friends spend holiday together, without women but with enduros.....and mountains and snow ( in july!!!)
...and old forts from the 18th century rigtht here in Europe, France in the Alps, on the way to mediterrain sea.

Many greetings to your great father with this history.


(sorry for my english..... ;o))

Greetings from Hamburg/Germany
Wes, I can't thank you enough for taking time to post those pics and share those memories. It was the right medicine to cheer me up during this blizzard we're having. Judging by the view counter, a few more ADV Riders have also enjoyed your post and several new inmates have joined in as a result. That's quite an accomplishment. And cheers to the photographer, too!

Sartene, welcome to the asylum! Your english is way better than my German. I would love to see pictures of some of your tours through Germany someday.

Thumb These are great!

I'm speechless, these are so good!

And this shot is simply awesome. But I can't help laughing when I look at the whole picture again ... there's something absurd and wonderful about having a license plate on this flying motorcycle ...

Wes, Hi, were any/many of these guys WW2 vets?

There's a lot of military-looking footware & headgear being worn . .. . I wondered if this might help explain the 'give it a go & to hell with the downside' attitude they seem to embody.

.. . . . . . reminds me of being surrounded as a kid by lots of such kit that my own da' had brought home with him .. .


Cheers
BrooC ;-))

I just joined after seeing this posting. What terrific pictures. They deserve to be in a gallery somewhere.

Ta CCCO, I guess there was just a heap of disposals-store kit available then .. . . . . . .. these pics also demonstrate how much things have changed in the way of specialised gear, let alone the actual bikes . .. . except for the english 'pudding basin' ones there probably werent even helmets available for motorcyclists back then . .. . . these daize there are folks who wont even go play at all without they have the 'correct' kit .. . . . ..

Yep, these photies sure say a WHOLE lot.

Thanx again
