I participated in a ride to help support a veteran who lost 2 legs and an arm while serving in Afghanistan.  All proceeds were going to the Veteran.  There was a great turnout for this ride.  I didn’t try to make an actual count, buy by my estimates there were over 1,000 motorcycles on the ride.  At $20 per rider and $10 per passenger, I’d say they raised quite a bit of money for him.


Lot’s of bikes showing up for the ride.


More and more bikes showing up!


Getting ready for the ride.


We arrived at the destination in Cave Creek, AZ.



A good show of support as more and more bikes arrived.


This ride, only about 15-20 miles.  From Scottsdale, AZ to Cave Creek, AZ.  A short ride, but for a worthwhile cause.

Here’s a few photos of my ride to the Hoover Dam.  Located along the Colorado River on the border between Arizona and Nevada.








The two photos below of a painting on the side of a building North of Kingman, AZ along highway 93.



When I saw this painting, I just had to stop and take a couple photos!

Here’s a few photos on our ride through Glacier National Park, Montana.



This was my first trip here to the park.  It was very impressive.  We didn’t stray off the road much due to time constraints.  If you really want to get the most out of your visit, you’ll need a few days to get off the paved roads and take some hikes up to the glaciers, lakes etc.

The Tiger Store (Historical Center)

We made a stop here at The Tiger Historical Center.  It’s Located 85 miles NE of Spokane, WA at the intersection of Hwy20 and SR31.  It was built in 1913.  From 1986-1996 it was a museum.  It is all that remains of the town of Tiger.  The town and area once boasted a population of 2,000.  I found some information from this link on the web.  Lots of nick nacks and goodies to be found here as well as a freezer in the back of the store that was full of Ice Cream Bars.  So that’s what we went for!


Wild Game on the Menu! and a 180′ Tall Bridge

Posted in Bridge, Bridges, Motorcycles, Scenic View, Washington, Water on October 1, 2017 by DRF


We stopped here at the “Buffalo Run Restaurant” here in Marblemount, WA.  Along State Route 20.


They had quite selection here on the menu!  I wasn’t feeling very adventurous, so I just got the Angus Burger.  I was told the Alligator Burger was White Meat.


Deception Pass Bridge along State Route 20.  Construction started in 1934 and ended in 1935.  It sure has been here a long time.  Located in North Whidbey, Oak Harbor, WA 98227.  The bridge is 1487 feet long and only 24 feet wide.  Just enough for two vehicles to pass.



A view from the bridge.  It’s a 180 feet to the bottom.


Another view from the bridge. It was quite a nice view.

Getting ready to board a ferry boat in Mukileto, WA.


All loaded up with a few other motorcycles.


The ride across Puget Sound didn’t take very long.


I’m enjoying the ride on a nice and cool sunny day.


Arriving in Clinton, WA.


Front row seat on the front of the ferry.  We’ll be heading East now through Washington.
