It's all about Rob

Rob didn't like the picture I posted of my bike and since it's all about Rob, he can wait a while for a couple more shots. Rob reports that he is making a remarkable recovery from his double hip replacement. Isn't modern medicine amazing? He plans to attend the annual group ride this summer - Spud Run '09.

We rode to Buddy Stubbs for his "Take Off Sale". Free food, music and a tour of his museum. You can read about Buddy and his museum here:

Then it was on to Hacienda Harley to look at more shiny bikes, buy a tee shirt and dream.

From there we went to the longest running continuous classic car and motorcycle show and shine - 20 years at MacDonalds in Scottsdale. The star for me and Dave was this DeSoto AirFlow.

I guess I also have to answer to Dean. He says my blog has become too centered on the Harley. I write about the Harley because it's where most of my time is spent. Either riding it to get groceries, or riding it for pleasure with the group from the park on Wednesdays, or talking about bikes with Dave (he loves helping me spend my money). Dean and Sue will be back in the west valley next week. It will be good to see them again.

I write about the Harley because I think it's probably the most interesting thing to talk about. I doubt that you want to hear about me doing laundry or cleaning the RV (I really should do that more often). I could, I suppose, talk more often about about our hikes in the hills and desert or my golfing exploits (I shot a 37 on Thursday). Raise your hand if you want to see more pictures of desert and cactus.

My schedule:
Monday - morning hike
Tuesday - recuperate from the hike
Wednesday - ride 100 miles away from the park, have lunch and return
Thursday - golf
Friday - Recover from golf
Saturday and Sunday - rest for the upcoming week


The days are interrupted by strolls around the rv park, visits with my neighbors, card games at night, pool games in the mornings, and occasional soaks in the hot tub. The weather of late has been phenomenal - mid 70s in the afternoon and lower 40s at night.

DeSoto trivia: In 1933, Chrysler reversed the market positions of Dodge and DeSoto in hopes of boosting Dodge sales. By raising DeSoto, it received Chrysler's streamlined 1934 Airflow bodies. But, on the shorter DeSoto wheelbase, the design was a disaster and was unpopular with buyers. Unlike Chrysler, which still had more traditional models to fall back on, DeSoto was suffered with Airflow design until the 1935 Airstream arrived. All of this makes the example pictured very rare indeed.

Bionic Rob has too much time on his hands.

It's your blog, write what you want! It's fine the way it is. Tell Dean and Rob to start there own.

Exhausting schedule you keep. Continue the writings on the transportation. Write more, you've been quiet for to long. Could use a few more photos, flowers, lizards, rocks, sand, beach babes, or RV oil pan are all interesting. You mentioned couple blogs ago that you thought you weren't very good with a camera. Not all that bad actually, better than half. This would be the chance to post the photos and then throw yourself on the goodwill of the readers for ways to improve. Since most cameras calculate the exposure the composition is still in the realm of the person.
