we topped the tank off at the last gift shop/vistors center, where an indian gal from california was topping her tank.

thats indian like bow&arrow, piece pipes etc not camel jockey

she was on the way to the big pow wow in albquarque "the gathering of the nations"

we grabbed a couple of navjao tacos for lunch & she sat beside us & told us more about it. She was meeting friends in gallup & they were riding to ablquarque the next day.

we left & hit i40 & twisted the throttle




about 90+ it started skipping, let off & finally figured out i as long as i stated around 70 - 75 no problems but as i started getting alittle faster the skip returned.

right before the new mexico border i gave up on 40 & dropped off onto route 66



which is 2 lane that runs beside 40 & goes under & over it every so offen

we stopped in right outside of gallup gassed up, & took this picture.

where we'd got 66 miles on route 66






corny right

wind was getting worst & worst

after we gassed up & grabbed a drink, guess who pulled in



she was getting off her bike & i asked her what took ya so long

her freinds showed up & we were bs ing, she slipped over by robin & asked her how long we'd been there robin told her maybe 10 minutes

robin said she looked at me and muttered something in a languge robin didn't understand

after some more laughs

we told em we were riding on to santa fe & if we made it to the pow wow we'd try to find them

rolled back onto 40 fighting the wind (the indian gals had told us 70 + gusses)

we got off to see the el rancho, i'd thought we'd try to spend the a night there but we were crunched for time by now.

El Rancho is an old hotel on route 66 that alot of big stars (john wayne, kathrine hepburn, gregory peck, humprey bougart etc...) had stayed at when they were making westerns in the area. It really was a cool place.

as we pulled up this guy pulled in in front of us



i said dude how many miles can you get on that tank, he said normally about 50 but in todays wind about 40.

said he was done & asked if we'd ever stayed there? "this place is awesome"

went in & checked it out


shoulda took more pic's, the walls up stairs had all kinds of signed pictures of movie stars

walked back out side & dude's buddy's pulled in



there were a couple of canam spiders parked across the lot, when the dude on the trike pulled in, one of the other guys say hey aren't you going to park with your other 3 wheeled buddies


we bs'ed a bit told them our plan & that i wasn't sure next time if we were going to do moab or colorado next. one of them said do colorado we got legel weed

i got one more pic of them & away we went

back on 40, wind blew us into other lane one time, but we kept on




after a while i stopped for a robin to take a break, close to 300 miles for the day



we rolled into albquarqure



i was still thinking we could make santa fe, but when i flew by cracker barrel without stopping i learned real quick it was time to go back eat & find a room

found out with the meeting of the nations in town rooms were doubled the price & hard to come by.

we finally found the highest priced, worst room of the the trip at a hindo hilton.

checked in & she was out

i was gonna down load some pic's, turned out thier computer couldn't do that

i pulled on my jesus boots & walked over to what i thought was a sports bar

Recently heard a "politically incorrect" short version for the difference-

"cigar store, not convenience store"

We get up & have breakfast at the hotel, funny looking eggs, we put em on tortitas put penlty of green chilile on em & hope the black specks in them is pepper.

This is a fuzzy picture but as we walk back to the room we're glad we didn't soak our wounds in the hot tub last night



showers & off to the airport rental car center



found the storage unit I'd talked to on the phone "we're the oldest & cheapest" worked for me

almost couldn't get it in because fairing was bigger than door, but where there's a will there's a way



Left there once again hoping to not see it on storage wars someday.


the gal that gave us the car told us if we didn't have tickets to the big pow wow it would take a while to get in. So we skipped it & headed north to santa fe.

Right into traffic jam. We saw a sign to a Harley shop & decided we'd detour.

And what do ya know they were having some kind of event complete with bikini bike wash




they were earning it, cause it was getting cooler & cooler, the wind was whipping.

robin kept saying we were walking to far & I kept saying it's gotta be right around the corner

finally gave up found a nice place out of the wind with some steps & told robin to set there I'd get the car & come get her.

turned out we had walked to far , opps




while I was gone 3 different men tried to give her a ride, one was alittle to presitent, she was glad to see me when I got back.

but now while we were walking around she did like her a cowboy

we found the park & everyone had pretty much packed up & left

we rode around for 30 minutes trying to find a bathroom

then found the plaza, I'd saw some folks on blanket across the square selling nic nacs, but we realized we hadn't shipped robins helmet & gear back. after our 3rd place we found a fed ex that wasn't closed.

Then a goodwill with a 7$ suitcase for her to carry her clothes on plane.

Back to plaza, once again we were alittle late.

So we made a mad dash for gsdave's party at captricks house


with the gps on my phone set for captrick's house, I had a bag of cigars but didn't wanta crash their bbq without something to drink.

Decided to grab some fire ball. Now the hole time we've been out west we've been amazed at where u can buy liquar. Drug store, convince store, walmart. until we wanta buy some.

I turned towards convince store .

gps said "make a u turn"

tru more dust storm

there's tumble weed in there I swear



they didn't sell it, kept going

"Make A U Turn"

still no booze

"MAKE A U TURN"

found a liquar store, but now we're laughing our asses off at the pissed off gps


Then to killer bbq at captrick's
