Niagara Springs

Our usual timeline got us on the road in the sun, but with almost 200 miles to go, the weather on the horizon looked a little different. 
But our fearless guide New York Donny, got us to the campsite without our rain suits on. Just a little muddy for a weekend of good food and good party!

Help a brother (get) out!

Please make a donation if you can. Some bikers from Austin need our/your help. They would do it for you so help however you can. 1 piece, 3 piece, no piece, we all have motorcycles in common and we need to stick together.

Day Two

The strong aroma of sage brush quickly replaced the smell of fresh sun screen. The sun was out, but the air remained cool, with a pattern of clouds scattered along the horizon that resembled left over popcorn on the floor of a theater. 
The road stretched out in front of us, void of any traffic, with the only disruption being the small towns which looked like they were stuck, frozen in a better time. 
The chopper gods were smiling down on us though. As route 395 and highway 20, wove us through, in between, and around every single storm of our 410 mile trip to Vale. Sometimes we were surrounded by rain, but the road in front of us snaked through the drops, leaving us completely dry for almost the entire trip. A couple peg pushing adventures at the end of a couple long stretches, left us riding shoulder to shoulder, on the shoulder, enjoying the scenery in the slow lane. 
The last bit of the trip, we followed the Malhuer River as it made it's way through the mountains and into the valley where Vale was. Wicky, Donny, cold beer and pizza were there to greet us. Another long day, ending perfectly.

Idaho Bound!

We're sitting here in a hotel, 100 miles from our intended destination. We did about 8-1/2 hours on the bikes today, and saw sun, rain, hail, and snow. And then a little bit more sun, then a bunch more rain! 
Call it giving up, puss'n out, or whatever you want, but those were some hard fought miles today. And with hands and feet like blocks of ice, and the storm still in front of us, I figured we made the right call by calling it a day! 

Crossing out of Tuolumne County

Finally on hwy 80, our weather started to show itself. 


Crap

Rainsuits on!

Stop to change glasses and sit part of it out. 


Finally north of Reno. 



Our last bit of sunshine

Rainsuits back on...

Flanders Chopper Bash

This weekend, Axel Netherlands. This is the place to be in Europe right now, shit, maybe the world. A small (getting bigger), grassroots show, with tons of choppers being ridden from all over to attend. Some of the Deathtraps got to go last year, and they had a blast.

On a side note: all shirt orders from the past week will be going on today! Thank you all for the support. See you on the road this summer!
