Redd keeps his 2010 TW200 in the house.  Almost 10,000 miles and it's spotless!

For a 65 year old Bachelor, he sure does a nice job of keeping house

Redd continually re-arranges.  His house looks like a museum


Art, photos and artifacts everywhere

NASCAR and Native American

Table decorations


Small, but well organized

Time to go out for a Burrito

After some riding around we settled on Jector's.  It was a good choice.

25 October Kingman

Just like old times. "The Gang" at the Kozy Kitchen

This marigolds are full of stored up sunshine.  Gas station somewhere in California

Years ago this was the Aladero Cafe.  Better know among locals and truck drivers as "Panty Hose Junction"  the waitresses work tiny red outfits with short short or very short skirts.  Now it's just a restaurant next to a Pilot Truck Stop

Route 66, Just West of Barstow, CA

Route 66 East of Kingman, AZ.  Shake down cruise after I got home. A rented Harley group from Germany was just leavin as I got there

In the evening, I rode up to the Crazy Horse store for a V8

Sunset over the Cerbat Mountains in Kingman

While we were gone, this place changed it's name and got a new paint job.  Mexican, BBQ and Italian food

Dr. John Craft. Craft, PhD, teaches at the Walter Cronkite School of Juornalism at Arizona State University.  He has done Documentaries of Route 66 in various stages of it's popularity. An excellent speaker, he showed a video and told us many interesting things about "The Mother Road".  Arizona Humanities Council, a Smithsonian Traveling Exhibition in Kingman at the Mohave Museum of History and Arts.  Very enjoyable evening!

Driving by the Victory Dealer, I spotted this 04 Nomad.  Nice paint and lots of expensive accessories.  Someone traded it in on a Victore

Left side of the bike.  Corbin seat looks comfortable

On I-5 in Southern Oregon 

Maybe a small brush fire.  

Beautiful leaves all the way today

A lady rider in front, they were exceeding the speed limit :-) 

Nice place to camp on the Rogue River.  Near the town of Merlin

My home town

Beacon Hill.  My childhood play ground.  I was born in a little house just a few yards from where I-5 is now.  This was our pasture.

This area still feels like home to me, but I left when I was 19 years old back in 1959.

The Rogue Valley

There were some bright red leave too, but the pics turned out to be mostly the yellow ones

45 more miles to the California Border

Some bright trees

Another week and this one will be red

Fat cows

A majestic Mountain

Looks like a good crop of hay put up for the Winter

Last picture of the day.  This is Mount Shasta near the town of Weed, CA.  We stopped for the night in a small RV park in Cottonwood, CA.  A good day of travel.
