Talking Good times in Thombstone

Had a great time in Big Nosed Kates Saloon Friday nite, great 2 man band. Met some cool people. Then went to a
Kareoke bar after, till 2am. Fun!
After breakfast saturday morning spotted this adventurous looking character. Real nice guy. Rex from Wyoming on an 83 BMW R100.

Tried his bike. It was pretty cool.

We went for a dual sport ride up the back side of the Cochise stronghold. Quite a knarley trail.




Rex was camped out on the the other side. He took off & I explored on the way back to Tombstone.


Met some girls along the trail.

Interestingly in my travels I have found cows to be very friendly curious animals. Interesting! No

Quite a friendly old girl actually.

The mountains were beautifully lit now with the sun heading down.




Got back into town in time for a nitetime parade. Most of the pics in the dark were not good but here is one of the
locals in the parade who rides an Iron Horse with his parrot riding shotgun on his shoulder.

Met a lot of the locals who were all dressed up in period costumes. Nice folk.

Judy.

Lively crowd 2 steppin to the Band at Big nosed Kates.

Joanne & Betty Davis. A coupla real nice gals who tied to teach me how to 2 step. It was a lot of fun but I seem
to have 2 left feet!

Big Nosed Kates closed about midnite but partying carried on at the Crytal Palace. I met Up a character named Doc
Holliday shot a round o pool with him. I won. 2 other guys challenged me & I won both those games as well. Then
nobody else wanted to play me. Well they had a good band playing as well so I hung out there till it closed at 2am
then went to the Kareoke bar till some time after 3 when I was ready to pass out & had to leave. Don't think that
place had a closing time!

Fun place!

Just name the time, I know the place . I think that JB Weld should hold for one more blast to San Filipe

BTW - You might not know this about me, but I'm great at remembering names...

Great ride report, keep it coming. I love reading the reports form folks I've met on the road.

Oh, but I did know you are good at remembering names Steve.

So how about meeting me in San Filipe on Jan 16th???
Or, how about riding to the Copper Canyon, Mexico March 30th 10days? I'll be flying return Vegas Mar 29-apr 8 for this one.
Anyone else interested in joining me?

Talking

It's getting near the end of this trip now. Gotta fly home out of Vegas Tuesday.
However today I am riding up to the southernmost Ski area in North America. Mount Lemmon.
Just NE of Tucson.

This time unfortunately I did not have my ski gear with me as in this previous pic of a couple years ago. Did
anyone see that report?


The road to mount lemmon was spectacular!









That's Tucson way down in the distance






Spectacular!
Vegas tomorrow, get a room for Suzi. (arrange storage)
Room booked for me for 1 nite at the Flamingo.
Fly home.
Plan next trip.

Feel free to email or PM me some particulars - specifically clear up my assumption that the January date is 2011 and the March date is 2010?

I feel a ride with RR brewing for the future

Pissed End of this Fly ride. Time to plan the next Installment.

On My way to Vegas, can't remember the name of the town but still in Arizona I stopped for gas & was lubing my chain. I spot this guy, looked like a homeless, I try not to look directly at him but soon notice he's actually chained to a log, Huh??? Well he's also not really moving at all yet has his eyes wide open???
Oh he's just a DUMMY! No, really. It's a very realistic display. Cool!
This guy is chained to this tree and it is a depiction of a storey which is playable right there. There is a push button & it relates a storey of back in the 1800's gold rush era. There were so many outlaws & such & not nearly enough jails. So they started chaining people to this tree. This guy was in a bar one nite, got drunk and wild got himself arrested.:ymca They went to chain him to the tree but it was full. So they chained him to this log. Come morning he starts begging asking for a drink, booze. When nobody will get him any he pick up, drags this huge log to the local saloon to make his demand. Hey this is the Wild West!!!

Got to Vegas. Got Suzi her own room, 0 star, she ain't fussy, only $29/mth.
I spent the nite at the Flamingo for only $40.

Got up with the sun & great view from the full glass wall.

Courtyard in the back is beautiful



Time to fly home.
See Lily
See my kids.
House maintenance.
Work.
Plan the next trip.

Cool2 Baja ha!

Flew back to Vegas got Suzi out of storage, put brand new knobby tires on her and fellow AdVer Mike & I headed for Baja.
Mike & I had met at the ADV West Fest in Colorado last year.

Leaving Mikes place in Vegas.

Mexicali. We needed to get our visitors permits.

San Filipe.




We did a ride in the desert west of San Filipe.

Wild Burrow out in the desert.


Trying to make a loop we went down a sand trail with 3 ft woops that just kept coming. It was exhausting (well for me at least)& we finally turned around
since we didn't know how long they would continue. By the time we got back out I was totally exhausted.

It was also now nearing dark and the only safe choice we had was to go back the same way we had come in. There was no way Mike could make it back on his
current gas, so he used the hose from his camel back and got some from my tank b4 it got dark.

His huge headlights were awsome in the dark & luckily we made it back with the gas we had.
Tomorrow we head for Gonzaga Bay.
