It was about week before the Born Free Show that Dave Polgreen called me up and asked if Brian and myself would like to accompany him and Z Doom on a little road trip to the West Coast. Shit.... You know I'm down to go anywhere at anytime. Time was tight a the cash was even tighter so we all pooled our pennies together and took off on a 34 hour nonstop roller coaster ride across the good Ol' U.S. of A. Brain rode out from the city and we loaded up my truck and met up with Dave and Zac at Kung Fu Tap and Taco in Des Moines. We managed to fit five bikes into the small U-Haul trailer without having to take my front end off. Jeff at Church Of Choppers watched over my truck while we completed our mission.
It hurts my heart to load my bike into the back of a truck but these are the facts. I'm in need of a longer bed, heavier rear suspension, and a few more than four cylinders. But we made it to Des Moines and back.
Crossing the desert
Diamond Dave is just used to this sort of thing
Zac pisses on his feet because his friend told him it keeps athletes foot away.
We ran out of gas in the middle of the desert. I noticed the sign that said "next gas stop 100 miles" after we passed the exit. It was a good thing we had motorcycles with fuel in the tanks.
Stealing gas from Petes tank.......
Gas stop in the Mountains
We returned home to 40 degree weather. I offered to drive the extra 90 miles to the city and drop Brian of at his place but he said he would rather ride. So I gave him a helmet and some chaps and patted him on the ass. His headed light was in and out before he left the drive way.... I knew he was in for a great ride.
