Echo Utah, the Kozy Cafe and Missus Zips Family Reunion.

Been riding the bike daily since I got home.    Doing some customer service calls on it, and finding it to be a nice ice breaker.   If you ride…. no matter what you ride…. People  like to talk about it.   It solves some problems.    I think I’m onto something. Last Friday, It […]

Two Weeks of Catch Up – Zip Family Reunion.

Its summer up here now.   Hit 100 degrees today, or damn close.       It’s so much different than living in the desert the last 30 years.    When its warm, everyone has an activity, or a ride, and you make hay while the sun shines.    Since getting home, I’ve had a […]

Day 13 – Easy Rider Movie Location Tour – New Orleans Louisiana.

I woke up and felt like George  Hanson in a jail cell.     When I looked in the mirror, I saw Keith Richards was staring at me.     It’d been a  long trip.      Burbon Street is an interesting place. I was to meet Graham in the lobby,  but I was 10 […]

Day 9: Easy Rider Movie Location Tour – Amarillo to Abilene

We woke up and had breakfast.   Eaglerider says that the Ambassador Hotel is one of their favorite hotels, and I can see why.    Very nice place.     I’ll admit it, I was a tad hung over from the night before.   A little wind therapy would fix that. Peter fonda had said […]

Day 8 part 2: Amarillo gets it’s own post.

We rolled down from Las Vegas, and hit interstate 40.    This is route 66 generally, and if you glance side to side now and again you’ll see old alignments of the mother road.    Route 66, from days gone by.    We hit up a truck stop to hydrate, and they had a bitchen […]

Day 8: Easy Rider Movie Location Tour – Taos New Mexico to Amarillo Texas

I’d fallen asleep early, and woke up early.    Rather than sit with my thumb up my ass, I jumped on the bike.   It had been a while since I’d been here, and never like this.   I ran up to where Easy Rider began. For the movie, Peter fonda wanted to buy junk, […]

Day 7: Easy Rider Movie Location Tour – Farmington to Taos New Mexico

After breakfast we headed north east to Durango Colorado. When they made the movie, they just bolted to Taos, with a piece of toast in their mouth while they drove, probably.    Who cares.    Peter and Dennis were hanging out in an RV, and the bikes were were in a panel Van, making miles. […]
