Well, we are back safe and sound from our adventure to the Pacific Coast
Highway and Monterey. And what and adventure it was. I was looking
for a little relief from the heat, but the first day of this ride took that to
the extreme and handed us what I believe was the most brutal, cold, windy,
miserable weather that I have ever experienced on a motorcycle. Since it has
been a short week and I have been playing catch up, the full story, route and
pictures will be in the newsletter next week. In the meantime, see 3 of my
favorite pictures from the ride. Click
One of my projects as soon as we returned has been stripping down Mrs. C’s
new bike for paint. All of the parts have now been taken to Chad
Designs to prepare for the custom paint that
will consist of a red metallic with some basic graphics. I have also done a
chrome exchange on the stock Street Glide wheels that turned out really nice.
Take a look at the bike as it is now with the front chromed wheel on it.
Stop by Thursday night, May 31st and check out the “Stereo Wars” competition at the Cyclerides.com Westgate Bike Night presented by the

Tidbits and Updates:
**This is an email from Ernie Lizarraga, the Phoenix Firefighter that was
injured in the motorcycle crash on Carefree Highway: The second trial for
the guy that killed 4 bikers an injured 5 while on methamphetamine and driving a
commercial dump truck will start June 11th. The first trial was a mistrial due
to him saying on the last day of trial he tested positive from diet pills and
the state did not have time to prove him wrong. The Judge said he can not say
that in the second trial. I will be on the witness stand June 12, the
Judge said he can’t use the diet pill story because its "A
LIE". Let’s hope justice is
finally done this time.
**Was anyone else hooked on the History Channel’s 3 night series on the
“Hatfield’s and McCoy’s? What a great 6 hours of television about a
piece of Americana. Kevin Costner was great as Devil Anse Hatfield. Good job
History Channel! Catch the re-runs if you can.
