How to Keep Your Motorcycle Clean

When I pulled into Laughlin my bike was dirty from the rain and road. I noticed that there were very few other dirty bikes. Did they all pull into town and hit the car wash? I don't think so, they trailered.
I was all set to blast these poseurs as sissies, but I'm glad I took time to think things over. After all shouldn't motorcycling be an all inclusive sport? Shouldn't there be room for everyone. After all there are sport bikes, antique bikes, dirt bikes, European bikes, choppers, bobbers and more. Why should anyone look down on those who get their pleasure by trailering their bike to an event and pretending they rode there?
...So from now on when I see a bike with, maybe, 4000 miles on the clock and the owner says he has been to Laughlin, Sturgis, and where ever, I'll just accept that he enjoys motorcycling in a different way than I do.

Planet of the Apes

The Apes were the dominant species in Laughlin. Seems they are taking over, must be evolution. Survival of the coolest.

Nice Bike

...I spotted this really nice hardtail in one of the casino parking lots in Laughlin and pointed my camrea. The owner, who was sitting on the bike, saw me about to take a picture and jumped off and started backing away so that I could get a photo of his bike. I told him to stay in the photo. I think the people are just as interesting as the bikes.
Nice bike, Nice guy!
