Suits the recent USA pics

Route 66 through the Black Mountains........

........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?

Larkin Poe

We should have been in Amsterdam this weekend,staying with friends and going to see Larkin Poe (would have been the 2nd time this week for me) at the Paradiso. 

USA Trip

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

Moto Guzzi Cafe Racer

A older build from 6+ years ago that I sold approx 4 - 5 years ago. Really liked the colour even in a dull light but when the sun shone on it

Moto Guzzi le man II

Neil who owns the 750S also left his le man II with me for a very basic makeover plus some charging issues. I made this clock console for it last week and will be fitting a mk I fairing

Larkin Poe

Should have gone to see Larkin Poe last night at SWX here in Bristol but obviously due to the lockdown that didn't happen. Also have a couple of other cancelled gigs which were due in June.
