Back on the road for Harley-Davidson and hooking up with old friends:
At the airport yesterday in Albuquerque
I could already feel the wind on my face thinking about riding Highway
395 from Los Angeles to Canada. Pouring over maps the past two months,
planning the trip, getting the gear ready, packing my bags. It was
time to ride.
in LA, picked up the new Wide Glide HOG project bike, made a couple of
very important stops before rolling on the throttle heading for HWY 395.
the opportunity to hook up with some very special friends. Thanks
Linda and Peg for opening up your home to a biker guy needing a good
bed, making me the perfect tuna sandwich, and putting a big smile on my
years ago I hung out with three very special guys. We were together
from the first grade in school through high school graduation. After
graduation we went different ways. My assignment for Harley-Davidson
brought us all back together after 50 years.
The four "motor heads". Jim, Mike, Me, and Marty. The '74 yellow convert belongs to Mike. Good things never change.
reuniting with special friends it was freeway madness across the LA
Basin. Made the turn onto Highway 395 near Hesperia. Kickstand down
tonight at Boron, CA. Up the east side of the Sierra tomorrow. Ridin'
the "Forgotten Highway".
Wind in my face, hooking up with old friends...it doesn't get any better.
be strong, be safe, Carlan
