Happy fathers day to the OG Dad himself. Don’t know when this image was taken ? Maybe like 1990 but it was at lake Hemet in California just before we moved out to join him I am guessing. Also why he looks like Pablo Escobar only he can explain. Happy Father’s Day dad.
Dropped the Low Rider back yesterday but not before I made sure I rode around in the pouring rain finishing off some chores.
If you don’t ride in the rain you won’t ever get wet. How terrible is that!!!
Everyone is talking abut ADV this and ADV that. But let’s not forget the original ADV(RE)
It rained for like 10 min and everything became pretty and then it got hot, muggy and terrible.
The whip for the next two days. The 2018 Harley Davidson Low Rider. Now all we need is some rain.
While riding up this slope I got stuck halfway up on a pretty large rock, trying to manoeuvre it off the engine stalled and eventually I had to get off the bike to try to dislodge it from its perch. I tried sliding it back down the mountain, tugging at it, pushing it a bit over the rock but none of that worked so a few of the guys came and pushed and tugged and with a little help from the engine I was able to walk the bike to the top of the slope. Don’t even ask what coming down was like.
We just had to ride as many of these brilliant bridges that are all over the place in Mustang.
Memories: Two years ago almost to date at the Ducati Enduro DRE school in the hills of Tuscany 14 of us were put through the wringer by Prof Beppe Gualini. It was the first time I had wrangled such large motorcycles with so much confidence. That day really was something. Not only did I come back with 14 new friends I came back with confidence to take these large motorcycles off the road and use them as they were meant to be.
And this was the first mountain we rode up to on the way to Lomanthang. The climb up it was steep and sandy and we thought it was the tough one. The only thing after crossing this mountain was the sandy bit went away and were replaced by rocky bits.
I can’t decide if this section was tougher this way or on the way back. You started about 15 feet higher than the rocky stretch and rode down a steep sandy section and hit what looks like a dried river bed for about 400meters and then another steep sandy section. Which ever way you come off the rocky section slow and don’t have enough grunt to carry the bike up the sandy section. Takes a lot of plotting, throttle, clutch work, standing with all your weight on the front wheel, praying and swearing to get you over the slope. A nice knobby tyre in the rear would have helped immensely.
