Cob havin FUN on the way home...............

Post by mr. cob » Thu Oct 23, 2014 7:49 pm

Howdy All,

I am not having much luck finding folks to play with on the way back to Washington, I must be to old and boring to spend time with, thats OK, the fellows I stayed with in Texas showed me a good time.

THANKS Brian for inviting me and THANKS Ken for letting me park the truck-trailer at your home.

There are a bunch of videos starting on page 10 of this gallery ( http://mr-cob.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/H ... &k=mLdj5Ck ) that show us playing in the water crossing and MUD. :boogie:

I am now in New Mexico, helping Ed put a clutch in his Ural with luck we'll get to go for a ride before I head to Nevada.

After I took this picture, (following Dave's instructions with his camera) we continued riding thru the Canyon, and as we came upon the next couple of shallow, and cleaner, water crossings, he slowed WAY down....so I'm thinking....hmmm...another picture maybe?

No...he told me later that he was proud of that Palo Duro mud and dirt and didn't want it to get w@$#ed off on the next few crossings!

Howdy DaveO,

I am now riding in the deserts of Nevada, just a few miles from Death Valley, oh how I miss the days when you, Don and I used to play for days in that desolate area, good times for sure. If I can get them to down load I'll be posting some links to video taken here in the Pahrump area of Nevada. Wish you were here. :cheers:
