Its times like these when you wish we lived in a land where when stupid people on their cell phones, or drunk drivers, run over a person on a motorcycle, we chopped off one of their hands to prevent another act of stupidity. But we don't. The one thing we can do is donate to help out the victims of these pieces of shit.
We've met Robert several times, all over the place, riding his badass long chop. He was run over the other night and is currently in an induced coma. His first surgery was a success, but is nowhere close to the end yet. Click HERE to help out in anyway possible.
While doing some research on Robert's unfortunate wreck, I stumbled across another chopper rider who was taken out by a drunk driver in southern California. I've never met Nick before, but the story goes, he resurrected this old Denvers chopper recently, and was hit by a drunk driver a week ago. Like Robert, he is in an induced coma, and has a long list of injuries. If you have the means, help these guys out. Click HERE to help Nick out.

We hit the road saturday morning with 80F+ weather. No one had more than a T shirt on for the remainder of the trip south. A quick stop in Oakhurst for supplies, and we were pulling into North Fork 30 mins later.
What the fuck is the Golden Chain you ask? Its a highway, route 49, which runs north/ south, along the western side of the Sierra Nevada's. Highway 49 connects all the gold rush towns from the mid 1800's when gold was first found in the Sierra's.
The towns still remain, and 49 is one of the nicest roads in California, (no bias!), as it winds throughout the foothills. Our goal for the weekend was to head to the end, and then onto North Fork and Bandit Town as our final destination. First stop for us would be Mariposa and The Alley Bar Friday night.

Safe and secure parking for the night. Oakhurst and Bandit Town tomorrow...
Wolf and I have bought a couple bikes to start a top secret project with! Got out on them tonight to get the wind in the ol beards, and picked up this unwilling hitch hiker while we were at it. Good times!
