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.

Tortilla Flat, Arizona

A nice day for another Motorcycle Ride.  This time to Tortilla Flat in Arizona.

Here’s a quote from their website:

Tortilla Flat is an authentic remnant of an old west town, nestled in the midst of the Tonto National Forest, in the Superstition Mountain RangeTortilla Flat started out as a stagecoach stop in 1904 and neither fire nor flood has been able to take away this historic stop along the Historic Apache Trail.”

The road from the West, State Road 88 is paved but VERY ROUGH and has a lot of curves and switch backs for about 20 miles.  It wasn’t a very enjoyable on my motorcycle.  The curves and switch backs would have been enjoyable if it wasn’t so rough.  This road needs some serious work.  The road leading out of town to the East towards Roosevelt Lake, is unpaved and I would Not recommend taking on a large motorcycle on it.

If you like Jalapeno and Chili, I recommend the Jalapeno Chili at the Superstition Saloon.  Very good (and hot!).

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.

 

Buddy Stubbs Motorcycle Museum in Arizona

I took a ride over to Buddy Stubbs Motorcycle Museum today.  I’ve been wanting to go here for quite a while and finally found the time to do it.  This display has 35 different Motorcycle Manufacturers on display.  I don’t know how many motorcycles there were, but a at least a few hundred.

Buddy Stubbs Arizona Motorcycle Museum is worth stopping by if your in the area.  It’s located inside the dealership just to the left as you enter the building.  A very nice selection to look at.  I heard one of the employees say the oldest motorcycle on display is from 1918.

Located at: 13850 N. Cave Creek Rd, Phoenix, AZ  85022

Scottsdale AZ Harley-Davidson

I took a ride out to Scottsdale Harley-Davidson today to see their new dealership.  This place is Huge!  Here’s a few photos.  They had some custom military themeed motorcycle on display.  Each one was in the price range of $51,000!  Now that’s a lot of money even for a Harley-Davidson!

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!

Nice Day for a ride in Arizona

A beautiful day here in Arizona.  I decided to take a short ride near home.  Here’s a few photos from todays ride.  The mountain to the left is Red Mountain, located just North of Mesa, AZ on the Pima-Maricopa Indian Reservation.  When conditions are right, you can get some great photos of this mountain.

Not much traffic out this Tuesday afternoon.  Just how I like it!

I believe the mountains in the background here are the Gold Field Mountains.

Another desert photo.

And another photo with a little bit of color in it.

And this post wouldn’t be complete without a photo of my motorcycle.  After all, this is a Motorcycle Blog!  This is my favorite setup for the motorcycle with the Tour-Pak removed.  It has the Mustang Solo Seat and a Solo Luggage Rack.
