Well, we're close. It's late Tuesday night/Wed morning and the trailer queens have made as far as Hinkley, Ohio. So far only a single flat on the trailer for a hold up, and we got that fixed in about 15 minutes for $8.00. Josh, Mike, Nick and I have been trading off driving and made some pretty good time since we left Temecula about midnight on Sunday. We were far enough ahead of schedule that we detoured up to Tyler's Lowbrow Customs HQ in time for some firepit/pizza/beer action and a nice floor to crash on. It's nice to get out of the van and stretch, though we have had fun with biker movie marathon; CC Rider, Satan's Devils, Hell's Angels 69, I can't remember all of the bad old movies we've burned through but there's been a lot of Triumph's riding through the desert and broads traded for old motorcycles. We're bringing a big jug of George and Wendy's Bachanora homemade Mexican moonshine to liven things up. Tomorrow it's straight in to Jersey to start working on bikes and get ready to ride the wild thunder.
