this is one of the routes, the parts guy at barnett BMW pointed me towards


As i gased up in some little town i was thinking i might make phoneix right at dusk.

On the other side of town i was going around alittle 4door silver car, it lit up like a christmas tree. I slowed down to pull over he turned his lights off & kept going. I cruised by him at the speed limt he feel in behind me, followed me out of town, where he turned another way.

I was making good time till i got caught at roadconstruction. 45 minutes later i got rolling again.




By the time i rolled tru apache junction it was pitch dark.

I think i might should have stayed in globe that night. Because i think i missed seeing some good roads by traveling that last bit after dark.

Rolled into phoenix well after dark, followed the planes to the airport and started looking for a hotel.

The next day i sorted tru my gear cleaned up the bike. Rode around.



roland aka rockn rollin had stored his bike 3 times in phoenix, so i got the name and # of the place from him.

I'd talked to her a few times on the phone, so when i got there she hooked me right up. Looking around I told her i saw one problem. You don't open till 7am & my flyt leaves shortly after 7. She said no problem just give me a call when u get close & i'll open for you.

"you live here ?"

"yes i live in a gated commuity of one"





noticed my luggage rack was trying to give up




While i was riding & posting pictures on fb earlier in the week a friend i hadn't seen since high school, let me know he was in phoenix. We got together for supper that night in scottsdale.

The next morning i was up before 5, packing up loaded the bike. Looked like i was going to have plenty of time to make my plane. Turned the key on........... nothing. Alright now i'm scrambling i've got a loose ground cable. I've got a whole set of allen wrenchs except the one that fit the screw in the brand new battery i'd put in about a month ago.




There was another guy wondering around I finally talked him into giving me a jump. He didn't want to but he gave in. Fired right up then it died.

The dude says keep it running this time it's the last time i'm doing this.

thanks buddy, anyway it cranks stays running & i'm off to the storage building.

I didn't want to call her till i got there 3 calls no answer, then she comes running out & i stashed the purple people eater for her rest.



The lady gave me a ride to the airport, if you ever need storage in phoenix i highly recommend these folks.



So ends red buds first motorcycle trip out west.

Great ride report. I just got back from a round trip to Austin from my place here in Scottsdale. Traveled very similar route to yours. Great time to be on the road around here. My Bud and I are doing a Durango and Santa Fe round trip first of June, should be beautiful.

Cheers
