Hoover Dam is realy a magnificient construction. The most of the road was Rout 66, a boring distance, but with som small nice places, looking as back in 50-60`s.
Coming to a more fun road, I was stopped and got a reprimand. Grand Canyon cant justifyes by words ore pictures. It`s just, GRAND.

Well Done!

Hey Hansi,
Been reading your report of your travels and enjoying your photographs, thank you.
There have been some familiar pictures! We too made a similar trip earlier this year, starting off with the Tuckers!
Hope you enjoy the rest of your journey. Well done for overcoming the difficulties of technology, it was well worth it, your photos are great.
Regards
Jif and Jim

From Grand Canyon to Tucson

1 moth on the road in USA. California and Arizona have been a great experience. The bike and the gear work well, and just two days with rain is for me perfect. Be able to do what I want, when I want, is new to me, and I just enjoy it. Se new plases, talking to people and enjoying the ride.
The long straight roads in Arizona was interesting to see, desert, agriculture and cactus, but boring. But going from A to B, one hawe to calculate with some "transport stages"

This I could been without

This is one of thous days, nothing get right.My TomTom Rider quit (dont open the map), and finding the right road without is difficult in this large country.To find a shop in San Bernardino area, who sell TomTom, is like the needle in the haystack. So internett must be the solution, ore? Having a home/billing adress in Norway, and delivery adress in USA is of some reason not acceptable here. That`s why I used Paypal a week ago, but that too failed. So, tomorrow I try to find the " needle ".( now staying in Hemet) A big disappointment, the GPS just lasted for two months. At home I have had a similar, for five years!

Hansi, welcome to Komifornia! enjoy your time here.

for bike parts you can go to Chaparral Motorsports in San Bernardino, big shop with lots of parts and gear.

for GPS, your best choice is to try to find a Best Buy. there are many here. if you want the best pricing, find a Fry's Electronics, they have many GPS with good prices.

glad you are enjoying your ride, you need to ride Angeles Crest Highway, Ortega Highway and Glendora Mountain Road before you leave the area, best motorcycle roads here!

Best way to get pars fore a BMW R1150R ?

Hawe some of you some experience with A&S Motorcycle Parts Inc.?

Afther two month on the road here in USA, I maked use of an offer, using a garage to make a major maintance etc. Ordered the parts 14 days ahed( by A&S M.P.) , to be shore to have it all, when I started. Afther 10 mails( to A&S M. P. ), the most without answering, I called them. 3 days afther the delivery date. Just to be told, the parts was not sendt, but they had no explanation.
Now I am wery interested to hear which BMW store would you recommend. Most af the time I must get the parts by mail.

Continue

Came back to Claremont CA, Jan.29, glad to have been home, and really looking forward to start/continue my North America tour. Repaired the side cases ( the new ones stil not coming)and the gasoline tank. Tuckers was home from South America, and took me on a trip to Angels Crest. Then goodbye my friends, and out to my adventure. Because of the weather there have not been to many visit at attractions, mostly cold transport stages. As cold, that I must wait until noon, to be shore the ice on the road are melted. Hope to be in New Orleans during next week. Hoping better temp there.

The drive from L.A. to Florida has been very cold, many long stretches and many nice places / thing to see. Have not got rid of the heated jacket yet. That Gerbing is indeed irreplaceable. The hight of the tour must be The Joshua Tree National Park, Houston Space Center, the landscape around New Orleans, that beauty - crazy city itself and visiting an old slave / sugar plantation. Now coming to Florida I have good time to experience the state.
