Partly it may have also been that all of our paperwork was in order, we had motorcycle endorsements, proper registration and did not appear to be hard core anything. If this had been a county sheriff or Searchlight city police we would have been guaranteed a ticket nevertheless.
This time we go for it. Plans are in place to return on Saturday with most of the crew for dinner.
Sitting around the parking lot and sharing stories of the trip and making plans for tomorrow Friday in Laughlin.
Friday morning early everyone meets up to ride over to Laughlin for a Yamaha sponsored breakfast where I win a pair of sunglasses. Everyone that is except for my roommate and travel partner, Johney who decides at the last minute to head back home instead of attending his paid for breakfast.
This year the official River Run hats are rather bland but I found one after walking about a mile, bought a small River Run patch had it sewn on, attached a pin and we are good to go.
Sunday morning and it’s time to hit the highway. I will be riding back with the group and Ed asks me to be wingman for the return trip. It does warm up as we head towards Lake Havasu and we take a short break to visit the London Bridge.
Arriving in parker it is definitely very warm at over 90 deg and I water up the Kool Vest, it really helps keep my body temperature down as well as my heart rate. The ride from Parker, AZ to this last stop is about 137 miles, our longest non-stop stretch. A quick stop in Yucca Valley and a Carl's Jr. hamburger, then it's on to the 60 Fwy and the 91 to home.
