On Friday, August 26 SoCal members-in-good-standing Mike Menezes and Craig Dillmann headed up to Utah on their modern Harleys to support Bob Clifts attempt to break another record on the Bonneville Salt Flats. Upon our arrival, we were pleased to hook up with Ron Stevens and Jim Christian!! We hung out on the Salt Flats checking out all the cool race bikes. Sure enough, on Sunday August 28th Bob Clift broke another world record on his 1940 Indian Chief!! Way to go Bob keeping the Indian name alive..93 miles per hour way to go Bob!
Mike and Craig continued on an odyssey including on Americas loneliest highway, the 50. California Highway 1, the coast, and every back road in between.
Included overnights in: Ely, Nevada; Wendover, Utah; Susanville, Ca; Fortuna, Ca; Salinas, Ca, on as many backroads as possible. We logged 2,300 miles in 6 days!
