OT.. Sorta. Off to Death Valley!

So I'm leaving tomorrow morning for a weekend ride out to the Death Valley area. We occasionally do a Fall or Spring ride out that way.
I'm joining up with several other riders to do the scenic touring thing.
If it gets a little hot hot smiley, we have our evaporative cooling vests. These work great in low humidity areas, like we have out here.

I'm riding my opposed 6cyl! winking smiley Its remarkable how similar the Honda Goldwing engine is to a Corvair. I think vary much that this is what a Corvair engine could have evolved into! Smooth as butter.smileys with beer

Paul McClaren will also be in the bunch. He rides his hand built mid engine Corvair Trike. Over the years he has put nearly 100,000 miles on this bike that he built himself. He even molded the fiberglass fairing and fenders in his own shop. Quite the engineer!

Kickstands up!
