The route & the map....High tech shit right there!


just before sunrise, our first fuel stop, in Primm Nevada


, the same location of our group shot last year. At least I took my helmet off this time, although on retrospect, I shoulda drawn down my bandana also.

Me and my Shadow....


The light just after sunrise is titties for photos, especially in the desert.


It's unfortunate that this is pretty much my last riding shot, as my wee beastie decided to not continue running, old electrics will bite you in the ass some day....


See? she's totally sad that she cant roll any longer.








ooh yeah.






Cocktagon! 15 guys, fighting with wiffle bats and helmets, lose your bat or get shoved out of the Cocktagon, yer out! It seems a PHD from berkely was top dog.





Car burning for the first time, after the volunteer FD put the fire out, someone lit it on fire a second time. Hilarity ensued.


The morning after, it was painfull for all


My little paradise, home away from home for two nights

I dubbed this years slab city riot The Fucking electrical Trip, as it seems everyone who had problems both in my crew and others, were electrics. by the end we had 3 bikes down for electrical issues, and one down for a blown clutch/tranny (shit like that happens when you do burnouts in fifth gear I suppose)

Amboy, dunno why, but I love this place


get down, get down,,, Get down, Get down.





Your first sight upon entering slab city


'nesting' I think is the term, it's the same thing as dogs turning in a circle three times before lying down.



Now this is how a real man sets a motorcycle.


B just couldn't NOT take work with him on this journey,



I really wanted to throw that goddamn cell phone out, but He woulda just gotten another one.

Gotta fly your freak flag high!


Anyone get this?


I'm not a fan of nazi shit, but this baphomet seat was so perfect, (and it's not a nazi swazi) that I fell in love with it immediatly, One of the larousche (fuck spelling) cats rolls it.


And the back rest is




That's pretty self-explanatory I think.



Did I mention the weird shit? Well, shit's getting hairy now!
Now I'm the furthest from a fan of Jesus & Jesus Freaks, but you gotta respect this kind of dedication











lotsa weirdness all night, but I can't discuss that.
here's sunrise on the second day, the one where everyone is supposed to show up, i.e. the official slab city riot is one night. WE came early last year, & inspired thirty or so other cats to do the same this year. Shit, next year who knows how many will come early.

Nice and RAW! I was starting to get tired of the usual, sterile BMW 1200GS road reports and yours pops up - kinda has a post apocalyptic look and feel to it!

This cat lives out there, running totally off the grid using photovoltaic cels & electric vehicles. Very cool stuff.]





OK. some background, Slab City is/was an army marine base up until WW 2-ish, when it was decommissioned, the army offered the land to the county, they said no, then they offered it to the state, they said no. Officially it's still army property. What they did was raze all the buildings and leave the slabs and water tanks. Some genius has been painting the two water tanks, and here they are. Final NSFW warning.

both of mans greatest? acheivments or anyway activities are here, fighting .














And Fucking.













There's so many little details, I could spend hours photographing these tanks, they're just amazing.










Check out the roadrunners at the bottom!

It is crazy that just the look of a swastika will make your skin crawl 55yr+ later....

It's an Ultima motor in a Flyrite frame, and it handles dirt... poorly. But, the front wheel came off and he kept that fucker upright!

Back on topic, Ron, a friend from Hawaii came down and vid'd some of the madness, here's the most excellent video he put together, pt one.






Pt Two;
