My friend Joe sent me these pics of a friend of a friends rather knackered Guzzi engine. The likeliest looking causing for this mess was possibly a camshaft casting inclusion that's laid dormant for 40+ years. The owner / rider was riding quite sedately at the time and also came to no harm I believe.

........from Kingman to the old mining town of Oatman. That night we didn't arrive in Las Vegas until 10.30pm after leaving the Grand Canyon that morning.
|Apparently some cars used to have to drive parts of this stretch in reverse|
(for the lower gearing) and or so that fuel could get to the carburettor
|Descendants of the miners Burros come down from the hills in the daytime.|
No idea what type of snake that is?

For the past few weeks I've been updating my moto nero Facebook page cover photo with pics from mine and Tony's US trip going back 13 years or so ago.
|Somewhere in north west New Mexico and we'd come from|
that direction - the nose of Tony's le man 1000
|and this is the direction we were headed and finally ended up|
that evening in Cortez Colorado
|Either already in or would soon be in Colorado......|
...and NO this isn't Monument Valley
|The next day and approx 40 mls south of Cortez.|
This is very close to the Four Corners monument
where Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona meet
|This is Monument Valley|
