took a quick ride over the mountain, not as fast as I used go over heading to ladies night years ago. But fast enough to be impressed with the new heidenau tires.

stopped in Helen at margaritaville for a burger & to watch the flooders

there were some good looking women











some babes there were also some real dogs

this is the story of red bud & robin attacking the wild wild west like a bus load of japanese tourist................flashbulbs a popping!!!



acknowledge ments THANKS to the guys that posted up in this thread if ya ever wanta try this trip there's some good imfo in here

http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=906554


Thrusday in spite of work problems for both of us,robin met me at my job at lunch time. We parked her truck & headed to the airport.

For anyone reading this for the first time. I did a job in Memphis, when I finished up last may I took a week off. Rode out west & left my bike there for a future trip.

Here's that trip. We landed in phoenix just after 5, caught a cab to storage site. The battery was dead when I left it, so I knew I might have problems. tightened cable made sure eletiric seat was off. no luck.

Maintance guy helped us jump it off & as soon as we unhooked cables it died. Not charging. Called around, Dillion at Zen Moto turned me onto Dave at Quailty cycles, who said he was booked up. When I told him I was from Jawja he said be there when they opened in the morning & he'd take a look. As the sun went down Terry the maintance guy took us to avis.




We checked into the El dorado in Scottsdale, i'd found a deal on the world wide web, as we pulled into the not very well lit neighborhood, robin had her doubts. But it was a nice place.

After checking in and unpacking we went to old town Scottsdale for dinner & drinks.

We stopped off at first steakhouse we found. Our most expensive meal.
The price sorta caught us off guard, boy it was good.


I had a ribeye & her a chicken something another.




After supper a walk around town.

The next morning work called and then called again, so I rolled on out at daylight & walked around to check out hotel.

I met phil, who was alittle full of himself, he spend alotta time checking himself out in the mirror.










Hotel was an older apartment complex that they'd turned into a hotel.




Amy a gal from va, who wasn't used to time change yet either, said " I keep waiting for frank santria to walk out"

thanks guys, don't get your hopes up to high


showers, breakfast, then to storage unit. They'd put battery on charger all night. Stuck it back in bike didn't hit a lick. Borrowed car battery, strapped it to back of bike & it was as dead as mc battery. Alright next plan, haul butt to batteries plus. They said they'd have to charge battery for awhile before they could determine weather or not it was bad. I said in the meantime sell me one. New battery back to storage on the way we stop for a water. I whipped it into convience store. Theres a cop car, an empty space & me. Robin jumps out runs in, grabs h2o's. Mean time another silver suv pulls in between cop & us. Robin comes running out (we're trying to get to quality cycles before they open) Opens door & almost gets in someone elses car

now that was funny

Get back put in new battery, won't crank, turns over won't crank. Shit I left choke on, must be flooded

stop walk around bike admire cell phone tree



yes that's a cell phone tower.

OK, maybe it'll crank now. hey wait I ran it down to reserve when I parked it, so it won't be sitting there with ethonal in it.

Turn it on reserve, hit the starter. She fires right up.


yes i'm a moran


As soon as it fire's i'm off with chase car in hot pursuit


hit the 202, roll into mesa, zipping tru town lose the chase car.


Chase car shows back up in the wrong lane three lanes over.

I turn left, she turns right looking for a uturn.

I keep going another 4 miles haven't seen her. I turn onto road shops on................& run outta gas.

roll bike outta rd, go back till I see chase car & push the purple people eater into shop 30 minutes before they open.

Dave's there doing paper work, we leave it in his hands & check out mesa & tempe.

Notice a few things we don't normally see, like .......




seems like a good combination to me

how about this one


Who would've thought to open a pinball & dildo store.


But I guess it works.

trip started & finished afraid i'm back in ga



frank say's hi



like I said rooms were pretty cool, with glasses, dishes.... everything. this one even came with lady sleeping on couch




after naps we, picked up bike

many thanks Quality cycles

returned rental car, by batteries plus for some cash. 6 month old battery had a dead cell.

rode around some more back to old Scottsdale for samwiches & beer, then alittle wondering around



Saturday morning packed the bike lathered up in sunscreen, off we went.

Rode by zen moto, thought we'd say thanks for turning us onto quality cycles, but we got there before they opened.

So alittle farther up the road we turned off into the desert




this trail lead us farther off into the desert than we'd planned.

We had to cut open catus for water & ate a rattle snake

ok ok, we got a bout 100 yds from the road when she said her back wasn't gonna take a lotta that



back down to 101 west, 17 n stop for h2o & gas, where I put new batteries in Walkman & throw away battery cover, some dumpster diving & it's mine again.

turn left onto the carefree hwy


Alittle while later she was ready for a smoke break & we pulled off into the desert again.



that little hill behind her was calling my name. so while she hung out in the shade I headed out.

"it's steeper than it looks" I was slipping and sliding on the loose rock, you can barely see it. But as I bounce by a 2' deep ditch on my right, I thought I gotta ride this thing for a week, I decided I didn't need to make it to the top on a over loaded st bike.




on the way down

Oh, I forgot to mention. Ya know how much we liked the el dorado resort. I booked the rooms for 60 something a night, before we checked out I tried to book us for 2 nights after we got back to town. Then they wanted 180ty a night yea that wasn't gonna work.

now we've barely gotten started and we're in awe of the desert.




we are headed to the hills




"cause I wanta be a cowboy BABY!!!!!!!!!!!"
