"A little traveling music, please......."

"California, a prophet on the burning shore
California, Ill be knocking on the golden door
Like an angel, standing in a shaft of light
Rising up to paradise, I know Im gonna shine...."

Well, Part-timer Steve and I are riding out of here (Denver) tomorrow morning for L.A. A nice 1000 mile jaunt. Steve is going to ride his chopper that was in the Street Chopper Fall issue this trip. With his skinny-minnie gas tank, I can't wait to hit that 112 mile section of I-70 between Green River and Salina, Utah that doesn't have any services. That's OK, I did it when I was young, he'll have extra gas on his bike. Plus, I'm taking the Geezer Glide (Road Glide), so I got the Loctite and tools, HAHA!

Last trip out, we hit Las Vegas in the morning, and it was already 105 degrees. By the time we got to Baker, CA it was 115. We gassed up there, and I pulled under an old gas station's overhang for a little shade. Steve rides up next to me and parked, then he says....
Steve: Do you know where we are?
Me: Yeah, sure, we're in Baker...there's the world's largest thermometer, it says 115.......
Steve: No, DO YOU KNOW WHERE WE ARE????
Me: OK, where are we?
Steve: WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MOJAVE DESERT!!! THE MOJAVE FUCKING DESERT!!!

I think he was delerious.....I thought I'd have to do like John Wayne did to Robert Stack in The High And The Mighty, when Stack was blowing it, and The Duke had to slap him back into reality again. That's when Stack uttered those immortal words "Thanks, I needed that!" But, Steve got it together after we had a TCBY sundae, and I didn't have to slap him after all.


This time around, Steve also plans on capturing a bunch of the trip on video and photos and as we go, and I'm going to take some snapshots as well - something I don't usually do on motorcycle trips anymore. This should be interesting.....if it goes well, Steve has this new wiz-bank program for editing all this stuff together. We might put some of it up on YouTube, with links from here. Who knows, if it goes really well, we might burn some DVD's with the whole trip.

We're gonna hang out in Burbank for a couple days with Frank Kaisler first. Frank has it all set up for me to interview Mike Parti on Friday the 3rd, and I'm really looking forward to that. Then we're gonna hit Bob's Big Boy in Toluca that night. Then from there, probably the NoHo Diner for a late night snack. Who knows, sometimes there's porn stars hanging out in the NoHo at that time of night.

Saturday We'll probably spend the afternoon with Superco Trev, then head down to Long Beach/Westminster for The Sinners July 4th party (hey that's the main reason for the trip!). Sunday we don't have any plans, and we'll hit the road for home Monday morning, and we'll wander around a little and get back here on the 9th.

So, if you see Steve and I at any of these places, don't be 'skeered to come up and say hello to us, OK?

New Focus Feature: The 3rd Annual Congregation Show

Words and photos by Panhead Jim
I can almost guarantee that if you are reading this article, that you probably grew up hitting bikes shows at local Harley dealerships and independent shops. You remember the ones, where two dozen bikes show up in some parking lot on a Saturday morning, and if you were lucky, there was one cool motorcycle worth checking out. The thing was that one cool bike made the whole event worthwhile, and you probably spent the rest of the weekend talking about it. Now try to wrap your head around an event where there are over 100 motorcycles spread out in a century-old Ford factory, and every single bike is badass.

DRAG SPECIALTIES SEATS LOW-PROFILE SOLO SEATS

Drag Specialties Seats now offers a double diamond pattern for its popular low-profile seat. These seats feature solar-reflective leather in the seating area and automotive-grade vinyl on the sides. This patented process reduces surface temperature by as much as 25*F for a cooler seat, higher durability and longer life over conventional leather or vinyl. Underneath is a flexible urethane foam interior to provide maximum comfort. The 3/1" ABS thermoformed seat base has a carpeted bottom and rubber bumpers to protect paint from damage. A handy EZ-Mount system requires no tools for taking seat on and off. Seat geometry places rider 2" further back and up to 1" lower (depending on model) than the stock seat for a better rider position with improved styling. The seat also covers the two seat fender studs for a low, clean look. Can be used with Drag Specialties solo rear seats (sold separately) and includes mounting hardware. Proudly made in the U.S.A. Available with your choice of black or silver double-diamond stitching for 97-07 FLHR, 06-07 FLHX H-D models. Suggested retail starting at $328.95. For more information, go to https://seats.dragspecialties.com/ or contact your local Drag Specialties dealer.
