IN APRIL THE WINDS BLOW, THE TEMPERATURES FLUCTUATE AND THE MOUNTAIN PASSES ARE STILL IMPASSABLE IN THE HIGH COUNTRY.
This is the time of year everyone gets the itch to ride and it seems that Mother Nature has other ideas. With a long winter and the pent-up desire it can be a frustrating time of year. Worse yet are the hot summer months that will soon be upon us that turn low country in the Southwest into human torture experiments testing a person’s endurance and limits. So what to do?
APRIL AND MAY ARE ABOUT AS GOOD AS IT GETS IN THE SPRING FOR US DESERT RATS.
With the hair dryer affect coming it is time to dust off the machine, put some miles on and get the tires dirty. Stop thinking about doing it and make the time and ride. The therapy awaits and there is no doubt we all could use a little un-wind time, relaxation and the opportunity to hit the restart button in our hectic lives. There is now a new option available to satisfy the demand for a long awaited riding fix.
BMW OF LAS VEGAS IS SPONSORING AN APRIL 12TH “STREET” RIDE, SATURDAY MORNING.
Show up about 8:30 Saturday morning and let’s Just do It! We will go out the backdoor heading west past Shoshone to Death Valley before the roasting temperatures make this ride impossible in the next few months. The goal is Scotty’s Castle. It is never fun to retrace the same route so we will come back to Vegas via Beatty and the 95.
COME ALONG MEET NEW PEOPLE – HAVE SOME SATURDAY FUN.
It is really cool to meet folks that enjoy the sport and to swap lies, share stories, and get to know others driven by the same passion for road miles and bug wings between your teeth. It might be a good idea to try it out and smile that buggy smile with new friends.
YOU KNOW; BUGS ARE ALWAYS BETTER WHEN SHARED WITH OTHERS ANYWAY.
Although I don’t know each of you it is my sincere hope that this spring, summer and fall will provide amazing motorcycling experiences that are exciting, rewarding and create outstanding memories. I will do my best to do the same. If we are lucky enough to meet one another along the way - IT WILL BE AWESOME!
