I've been on the road since I was 17.
Though this is my longest motorcycle trip ever. Having the quad-fecta never happened before... (Inclination, Money, Time, Understanding S.O.) The planets aligned just perfectly!!!

Tough crowd...


Introducing Bill. He was lying around on the streets of Tucson looking for day labor. I picked him up for $10 a day plus green card. He followed us for the CDR in his truck, It sure was a pain in the ass carrying all his shit.


I needed some maintenance in AZ so I set to it. Among other things, I had mailed my knobs on wheels to Tucson. I needed some simple service stuff, Change of oil etc.
On Sunday morning I discovered a broken bolt on my frame....

it holds the bottom bracket that supports the bash plate and the side stand.....Fuck me@!
After much hand wringing and gnashing of teeth about the BMW shop not opening for 2 DAYS!!!!! Someone suggested the largest Ace Hardware in the friggin universe..... They didn't have a bolt but they did have an M8 threaded dowel that I JBWELDED a coupla nuts on .... FIXED, but now several hours behind schedule... my crack mind thought, what do I do next????
I went to see Prometheus in 3D, and played with a puppy.
Brilliant.


Off to work..... UGH.... the real world sucks.... I wish I lived in "ride every day in the Rockies" world

Oh you know I would've loved to be out there with you guys. I'll just have to make it up with some more local rides for now...Michaux one of these days?

Also, be careful with the threaded rod you replaced the bolt with - the threads aren't meant to take the kind of abuse the bolt shoulder is. I'm sure you know this and are gonna replace it anyway, but I just wanted to say it to be completely sure.

Ok hardware guy.....
Badguy is right, I need to replace the stopgap bolt.....
I need an 9" +- M8 bolt of the hardest steel and threads for about an inch on the end...I'll get the exact measurements. I promise it won't take me all day to find your store again!!!!
Hey I've got a photo just for you... Lemme find it...

This is Lonestar2112's pannier. You must have given some stickers to 6USMC6 at the pirate ride to eat or somewhere... he gave one to Bob (from California) and he liked it enough to stick it...

Skipping the quoting process...

Seeing that sticker there is sweet, I may have to swipe and post that picture on the cub's fb page

HARDWARE....
The bolt you need is a M8 x220mm
I already called my suppler, the longest they've got is too short

Thanks for the invite, Jack! I need to get to Michaux, but I haven't been on a decent ride in VA in a while either...

Good detective work on the bolt, Mick I tried looking at my normal places but could find that size only at Fastenal...and it's still almost as much as the official bolt Looks like Bikebandit is the way to go. I know it's a big bolt, but $20!?

Ok, enough hijacking...my bad.

Thanks for the bolt searching Y'all... Leave it to BMW to use a 20$ bolt that's subject to breaking....


North eastern AZ.. didn't take too many pix cause we were on a schedule.
Up toward Showlow AZ you start getting alpine flora.

\
On to New Mexico again.




Me n Bill did not meet up the other riders until after dinner time... several hours/miles later than planned.... Ah well...

Camping north of Grants NM.

Pomo showing his ass to someone.. proly Scott. It was recent/excellent news that Pomo was going to ride with us for awhile.

Bill's ride is behind.
It was totally cool as shit to have him along on many levels. Note the cooler

Chaco Canyon (very cool), sand and battery woes and a nice campground up next.

Morning. Tuesday 7/3


Camping north of Grants NM.





ScottP, H14, Pomo, and Steve went on with the CDR proper while me Lonestar2112 and Bill took the alt to Chaco Canyon

I thought this would be an excellent chance to see the ruins.. JaxWife and I tried to see it 20 years ago in December and were advised against it due to road conditions.











We got into some dirt, sand and rock on the road into the canyon... This is the road in from the south. Pretty good road, but it would be a nightmare if it was wet... Plenty of ruts and no real gravel to speak of.
