Grass Valley Bound

After a good morning wrench session, we got on the road bound for GV. One slight hiccup an hour into our journey, split the pack into two groups, one heading north, while the other was left to do some more wrenching on the side of the road.

Gearing Up

It's been awhile since we've gotten most of the brothers together for a trip, but this has become one of those rare trips. As we close into the last couple of hours before we head off, everyone's lists become longer as the minutes tick away. The self employed become the parts runners during the day, while everyone else watch the sun slowly set as their shifts come to an end, and they can then run to the shop to prep for the road. Tomorrow morning will be a scramble of anticipation, jackassery, and last minute wrenching, while bedrolls and tools are packed up. The road calls!
Damn the anticipation!

Fugle's Creations

Some of the Deathtraps along with the Rogues had the honor to meet Tom Fugle and several of his brothers at their clubhouse in Sioux City earlier this summer. Tom has a blog up with mind blowing photos on it. Check it out HERE for a history lesson in choppers! AND LIFE!

A sunburned Mick from Holland, showed up with Big Fred, from Portland, the other day as the made their way to the coast and then back up to Oregon. A quick tour of Sonora, some beers, lamb asado, some more beers, and a quick ride up highway 49, and they were off. 
Great to see them in Sonora, as I first met both of them in Holland before we made our way with the Rogues into Brittany to meet up with Marco and Yvon (who will be here next month!)

Sacramento Bound: Buddy's Benefit

Due to the lack of anything that resembled good headlights, Baby Clint and I took off ahead of the rest of the guys in the hopes of racing down the last bits of daylight. Made it almost to Stockton, but by then we tucked in behind and in front of cars with enough candlelight for the both of us as we blasted up 99. 
Had a great time at the Hideaway, partied with everyone, and then camped on Jerry's front lawn. I still owe you a pair of socks Jerry! Big thanks

Marching to the Sea

Anything that gets you pumped up while sitting in front of a computer screen must be good. This would be good...

Reno to Sonora

We left Reno in the heat and hauled ass south towards our final gas stop in Walker before heading over 108 and Sonora pass.
Got to the top of the pass just in time to watch a good thunder and lightening storm pass over the route we were going to be taking as soon as we left the summit. No rain, and just a couple miles of wet roads. Great ending!

Racing home, the last leg
