I'm on the road to Montana for a photo shoot. In a minivan, unfortunately. Too much gear, wrong bike for the job.
Leaving Reno on 80 east, we see Nevada Highway Patrol (NHP) and sheriff cars everywhere. On a twenty mile stretch outside of sparks, dozens of patrol cars - and along the highway, we see at least seven 'enforcement actions' - people pulled over at the side of the road - in every case, two or three NHP vehicles ("back up"). One incident had a guy with a small rented U-Haul trailer being frisked by NHP.Click here to continue...
We got back to Jackson at about 7pm tonight. It was a good ride, a bit cold up at the top of 88 (near the lakes) but warmed up as I dropped to lower elevations. (Stupid me, left my heavy gloves in the motorhome with our 'support crew'.)
I'll be uploading new photos and story items as time permits over the next few days. The photo gallery (which has a few dozen photos at present) can be found here.
I prepared my bike and I for the upcoming Street Vibrations event, which I have done in the past on my Harley, but this year I am making the trek on my new mount, the 06 Hayabusa Limited. I am hoping to find other fellow sport bike fans to ride some of the rides with and would love to hear from you.
We're attending Street Vibrations in Reno this year. We'll be riding up 88 the morning of Thursday, Sept. 21, and taking a bunch more photos than on our previous visit. We'll be there for the entire event, and hope to provide daily updates here (if we can find a good internet connection.)
Update: Check out the Street Vibrations photo gallery with recent photos!
