While at the Laughlin River Run, I decided to take a look at Don Laughlin’s Automobile Collection.  It’s located at the Riverside Resort and Casino.  Here’s a few photos.

Laughlin River Run 2016

Posted in Harley-Davidson, Laughlin NV, Motorcycle, Motorcycle Events, Motorcycle Parking, Motorcycles with tags , , , , , , on May 2, 2016 by DRF

I didn’t take very many photos this year at the Laughlin River Run.  I’ve been here several times over the years, and for some reason taking photos wasn’t high on my priority list this time.

Anyway, here’s a few I took with my cell phone.

Saguaro Lake – Arizona (w/ a Helicopter Sighting!)

Posted in Arizona, Harley-Davidson, Lakes, Motorcycle, Motorcycle Parking, Motorcycles, Water with tags , , on March 5, 2016 by DRF

Another ride to another lake.  This time to Saguaro Lake, NE of Phoenix, AZ.  While I was there a police helicopter made an approach and departure from the helipad.  I’m guessing he was practicing his approach and departure maneuvers.  He only stayed on the ground for a few seconds.  I didn’t get many photos this trip, but here’s a few.

Another Patch for the Vest

Another patch added to my vest.  I’m almost out of room.  Over the years I’ve added, removed and replaced various patches, keeping the ones that mean the most to me.

Anyone else have a motorcycle vest that they’re proud of?  I’ve spent quite a few years adding to mine.  Maybe in another post I’ll show the different patches on the front & rear and their significance to me.  Each patch brings back memories.  Kind of like going back through my motorcycle journal that I’ve keep over the years on my trips.  Lots of good memories.

 

A Horse, Car & Motorcycle in Arizona

Here in Arizona it’s not unusual to see a Horse, Car and Motorcycle in the same parking lot.

This was the first time I’ve stopped at  The Hitching Post  Pizza Pub in Apache Junction, AZ  (Near the Superstition Mountains).  A nice place with plenty of seating inside and outside on the raised deck patio.   It seemed to be a popular place.  You can’t tell by this photo, but there were more motorcycles in the parking lot than cars on this Saturday afternoon.  I’m sure I’ll be back.

Color and B&W Photo of my Harley-Davidson 2015 FLHTK

Experimenting with my camera today.  I kind of like the black and white for a change instead of color.  I had Harley’s detachable tour-pak conversion kit installed.  It’s like riding a completely different bike with the Tour-Pak removed.  It’s like having a Street Glide and a Limited now!

One color and one in black and white.  I can’t decide which one I like best!

Looking Through the H-D Catalog Can Get Expensive!

Posted in chrome, Harley-Davidson, Motorcycle, Motorcycle Accessories on March 19, 2015 by DRF

I’m still waiting on my new motorcycle I ordered a few weeks ago.  Without having a bike to ride lately, I find myself looking through the Harley-Davidson catalog.  I’ve even gone down to he shop and walked around just looking!

Well “just looking” and flipping through the accessories catalog has cost me a few hundred dollars!

Here’s a few accessories I’ve purchased while waiting for the new motorcycle to arrive:

Gauge Trim Kit, Windshield Trim, Passenger Footboard Covers, Front and Rear Speaker Trim, Tie Down Brackets, Shorty Antennas and a Tour-Pak Organizer.  I’ve also got a few accessories from my old bikes like Highway Pegs and Saddlebag Guard Bag with Water Bottle Holder I’ll be adding.
