follow this down to ride



to the middle of these fields


so far most of the road had a twenty mile per hr speed limit, course they didn't mean us, when we got here we let it roll

on the other side when we started up cruve to curve it was getting good, when we heard a meltallic racket coming from the rear end, i knew right away another friggn driveshaft

pulled over in a cruve hopeing for a simple fix, nope

looked rode about 10 feet no noise in nuterul in gear sounds like a bowling ball in a dryer, this can't be good.

We'll stop now & not tear anything else up.

Now do we try to go north or south well we're headed north lets all the one wrecker service in the next town.

"man we're to busy today to go way up there"

they did give me the # to the wrecker service back in cliffton

"let me call my driver & i'll call you back"

wifey woofed down the fritos while I tried to figure out how to get us off the mt

& I didn't wanta start drinking till I knew we had a solution,

yea I know who am I & what have I done with red bud

So I called the good people at nuttall's towing in safford 928 428 0825
& they said they could come get me they just didn't know went all their drivers were out.

Called enterprise they said they would deliver a pickup to me cool, I said I know its a ways up here I'd pay extra for them to come this far. To which the guy said "no sir i'll shuttle service is free"

1 1/2 later he calls back & says they can't go out that far.

I decided maybe we'd thumb back to cliffton, get a uhaul & come back for bike. Robin wanted to stay with bike. Which I didn't like that idea.

And after 45 minutes of not seeing anybody go by either way. I called them back & said sent someone when you can.

They said they'd see what they could do.

Robin went for a walk, I pulled out my bmw anymous book, one guy said there was a guy in slow low that worked on airheads but he didn't know his name or # , & every one I talked to mentioned dave at quality cycles.

Tell ya the truth I wasn't about to leave robin on the side of that mt where she could scare off all the mt lions , coyotes & bears.

I went for alittle walk & saw 3 little pigs



this is as close as I got before they ran off.

walking tru the woods I found a cattle thingy ? maybe for loading cattle




thought I was about to step on a snake but it was a stick



not sure what kinda wood this is

I usually have some beef jerky in the saddle bag, except when we really need it.

back up alittle while we were sitting around reading books & waiting on the 2nd wrecker company find there driver I'd posted up on fb "tell me again how dependable bmw 's are"

when I said it was the drive shaft andy (norton73 on here) said I've got a gs drive shaft under my workbench if ya want it

then my buddy larry from back in Hayesville nc, posted call me I'm in phoenix, called him & left a rambling cussing vm talking all kinds of smack.


ok back to where we are when I get back from the lastest walk robin is snoring




if ya gotta hang out on the side of mt doing nutn for 6 -8 hrs u could do a lot worst than this



& the weather was nice

In the mean time larry called me, apparently the # I had was an old # I have no idea who I talked so much shit to on the voice mail, opps

I told larry wrecker was on the way, they were going to take us to sattford where we were going to rent a truck Or a uhaul & then come back to phoenix. He said no don't do that I'm on the way

Gotta tell ya a wrecker never looked so good

the people at nuttalls were awesome, she showed up with a big bottle of water & kept sying if you wantta stop for pictures just say the word.

we saw a lotta deer,



20 minutes after she picked us up the sun went down




she stopped at the 1st convence store (2 hrs later) and let us get something to eat.

larry beat us to sattford, out of every bar in Stafford he wound up at the same one we stopped at when we came tru, tell me hillbillies dont' think the same.

We backed his truck up to the wrecker bed I spun bike around on wrecker bed, dude lowered bed right to larrys tail gate. And away we went back tru the apache rez, back tru globe for the second time and into tempe we checked into the same hotel where larry & his crew were staying & went to bed.

By the way we got a womping 40 miles give or take on the bike, 90 in the wrecker and another 160 in larrys pickup. yea ha were making more miles..... backwards....

the next morning we checked out our new digs







we had breakfast at the hotel, larry & some of his crew joined us.

We went back to our rooms & then got back together around 9am & rode out to quality cycles & told dave our sad story. He said I wouldn't be laughing I'd be pissed I said what good would it do me

As we unloaded bike he was telling me this was his busy season & didn't have time to take on any thing else, as he checked it out & rolled it up on lift.

We left back to hotel, split up again & said we'd get back together for lunch before we got settled into the room dave called us, it was the drive shaft. He said get the used shaft on the way & to go by go.az the local bmw shop we need ed some bearings and stuff that was on the counter waiting on us.

Called andy, he said I've got it with me incase u needed it

Now how awesome is that.

anyway lunch & picked up parts went back by quality cycles




Got a text from andy & shaft was on the way next day, should be there before lunch

Larry & his crew had to go in at 1am so supper at the hotel they grabbed some sleep & we went to convince store for supplies.

Went to sleep thinking we maybe back on the road late tomorrow afternoon, head back & finish the devils hwy. After all we're on vacation so that puts right on schedule.


Wednesday we all met for breakfast again, back to rooms then larry, scott, robin & me went for lunch alittle later (still no news on driveshaft)




at the titled kilt






some time at lunch scott showed me a picture of his family, beautiful wife & 4 teenage daugthers. He said he'd spent a month at home not long ago & "there was so much estrogen in the air he started growing man breasts"

our hero larry & new friends

Larry called & said he'd been called into work & would let us a know when he could come get us.

we wasted more time




then we walked around the mall, robin toughed it out




Larry picked us in time to get supper at the hotel, We wound up drinking in the hotel hot tub for the evening then calling it a night.
