Equinox2Equinox Rally

I've had a few emails back and forth with my friend Tim in Las Vegas lately and he mentioned that he's not really wanting to do Rallies any more that involve tents and sleeping on the floor etc,but that he's signed up for this Equinox2Equinox rally that runs for approx 7 months and you can do it at your own pace with as much input as you want really.
   The basic idea is that you are given a list of location to photograph/ things of interest eg. National Parks,defunct car brands,cemeteries over 100 years old etc etc. They then continually get updated on a website.
 I think it's quite a good idea as I like looking at pics of other places and it gives you a extra reason to search things out that you might normally pass by.
You have to display your bike registration for the pics.
As Tim says it's a little harder to find stuff to photograph unlike being on the East Coast.

Nipton, California approx 60mls out of Las Vegas where you have to go if you want to buy a lottery ticket
as you can't in Nevada..

Triumph T140 Nourish - project update

Martin has been busy in his garage getting on with his Nourish project and although he's not rushing it I think it could on the road before Summer ends........It's got to begin before it can end though eh

Martin has made his own breather rather than just a exiting bit of pipe.
He was originally going to use a Triumph America item,but decided it was too big and unnecessary 

and opted for his own with a reed from a BMW

Most of these are other parts he's made and now had anodised

Guzzi Race Bikes - 'Imola Revival' 2013

Joe Caruso kindly sent me these pics from the Imola Revival that he went to a few weeks back.
   There are too many pics to put up in one hit, so I'll post some more soon.
 Must get to it one day !

I assume that this is the town of Imola.
A lovely looking place (aren't all Italian towns/cities)
to grab a beer and pizza
