We crushed 570 miles today and made it all the way to Reno, NV....we are looking for Cory, but we are about a day early....Mike and I were rolling today...we averaged 82 miles per hour...this INCLUDED our breaks and lunch....I think our average speed was 95-100 for most of the way.

See for yourself....once again, safety first....









Route 50 is called the "Loneliest Highway" in Nevada - for good reason.   I think we passed (in both directions) about 60 cars.

We basically had 15-20 mile stretches of highway and then a mountain pass.  Repeat and repeat until you hit Reno, NV.











I will update this later with the pictures from today and yesterday....

**** Updated....I had some technical difficulties with my laptop, but I have finally been able to get the pictures on the site....*****
 
 
We finally hooked up with our little friend Cory for some dinner and treats.  Although he has relocated to the West Coast - Cobo 4 remains the same.  Small in stature - correct; Big in personality - indeed!!!  We went out to eat in Reno to a great restaurant and Cory orders a steak....and A1 steak sauce.  He was upset we couldn't go to Sizzler....











Later on, we headed back downtown for a few more drinks.  Cory is still easy to pack and ship if need be.










I also test drove a new bike for the remainder of the bike in a relatively inebriated state.  Luckily, I stuck with the Harley as it fit me a little better.











We also realized it looked like Mike had gotten new hands installed by this time in the trip from the sun hitting him between his jacket and his gloves.  We thought this was funny...maybe we were bored...

I been following your trip cross country and you guys look like a combination of Easy Rider and the Wild Hogs. Scott, do you think that you will come home with a motorcycle mama? Next time that you go, I might get a 'big Hog' and me and my motorcycle mama, Miss diane might hit the open road with you. Miss Diane said she would go if she could ride in a side car. I am sure the Hells Angels won't mind. Enjoy the rest of your trip. Come back soon. Phone service has been terrible since you guys took off. Big Daddy Coop
