i've been planning this trip out west, and tony aka fxrider71 told me he had just became a heidenua dealer a while back so i ordered a pair.

of course they sent him the wrong set

then it took me forever to get over there to get em

he sat on em for what seemed like 3 or 4 months before i finally got caught up to head that way.

my plan was to leave early tuesday morning (big trip wed) & be there when he opened, back at work by lunch, yea that didn't happen

finally got on the rd around 7 smelled burning oil. stopped at a convence store added more & stayed on the phone with work for about 2 hrs

take off down the rd with a blue cloud behind me seemed to be getting worse so i stopped at a tractor dealer. added more oil cranked it back up and oil was pouring out the oil filter.

texted tony i was broke down he offered to come get me

told him to let me see what i could do, got the leak stopped poured the other 1/2 a quart i had in. good to go. Go in tractor store to buy more oil, they're out.

i'm on a roll

Had threw my helmet onto sissy bar over fishing pole, when i put my helmet on i had a spinner stuck to side of my head.

i've got pictures but i didn't download them the other night at the hotel that wouldn't let me post pictures

now onto ones i did down load

Got to Whitkers motorcycles just as tony was finishing up some brakes

He took me rightin and got started. Once i got past guard dog, here is in his attack stance

Now smugbug is not opening

check back later, more to come

we installed tires, & he was excited to put handle bars on beemer

He straighten triple trees i'd called myself fixing a while back

that's made a big difference in this trip.

he worked me tru lunch

many stories back & forth was a good afternoon

If ya get the chance stop in. He's right on the side of 45 in selmer tn ya can't miss him




on the way home i stopped off at the state nut house



i didn't go in, i was scared

actually i was still telling myself i was gonna get back in time for work

yea, i'm not to smart, rolled back into memphis after work and realized i wasn't gonna make it.

went home did some more packing, then met some friends at the saucer

by the way all the work we did to the bike i think we've got it looking pretty good

tony does good work don't he

more good byes


Was supposed to leave sometime wednesday, but this thought that the bikes loaded & the sooner i leave the farther i'd get kept going tru my head.

about 11 i headed out, thank goodness i was going west because there was a turned over tractor trailer going east that had that whole side shut down.

about 1 i was starting to have the bobble head & stopped in hazen ar

ok the plan is head out west, leave the bike, fly home & when robin can get vacation we'll fly back grab the bike & do the grand canyon etc......

wednesday i wake up 6 & back to bed roll out 8ish spend most of the morning on the phone between work & delta. Turned out i couldn't use the skymiles for this trip. WTF they don't make it easy.

kickstand up rolling west bound down the super slab, once again glad i'm not headed east



was planning on checking out little rock one week end while i was in memphis, but this is all i saw of little rock




i did stop on the other side at walmart for some sunscreen & a new gps

spend a whole 10$ for one with a light in it



Headed back to the big rd, saw a pawn shop sign that said 1500 guns. Ok i'll check it out, went across a ditch over some bumpy stuff to keep from going all the way around.

And watched my brand new gps with a light in it bounce out into the freeway

I remember in my late teens early 20ies getting easyrider mag's. One of the first things i'd look at, was in the middle of the mag there was a list of all the helmet laws in each state. I'd plan trips to those states. (same as today i planned, but hardy ever got to go. somethings don't change) that didn't have helmet laws.

Now i'm cruizn tru ark in my full face wondering why so many people aren't wearing helmets. (ok some times i still do it to, but for the most part i wear mine)

Also planned to spend some time in hot springs while i was in memphis. didn't happen. But i did cruise tru on this trip.

for some reason after I left saddlebags I haven't been able to pick up anything but 70s & 80s disco, what worried me most was I seemed to know most of the words

the talimara parkway



I made to Oklahoma, but it was dark & foggy

I went back to camp ground i'd passed a few miles back

don't tell jamiez I paid to camp

still foggy the next morning
