My husband Ty and I had just finished setting up camp for the Backroad
Boogie and were relaxing with some friends when the cavalcade of
motorcycles began to appear. They came up the road in two's and three’s
after cruising down a quiet road in the beautiful Arizona fall. I
immediately noticed Scott’s ride, as those stretched-out forks make it
hard to miss. After everyone had a chance to settle in and wash some of
the road dirt off, I started wandering through the assembled bikes.
There was a wide variety for such a small gathering, but that
Electra-Pan, she stood out like a diamond. It’s everything a chopper
should be, buttoned down, clean, raked out, and a runner. In addition,
the paint job by Andrew of Triple’s Paint Works is spot-on, and that mix
of gloss and matte catches your eye.
