It’s nice to see other chicks take up building custom bikes. Check out this gnarly XR500 I scoped at Babes In The Dirt in Gorman owned by Amber “Bam Bam” Willat of Dirty Girls Project. She says this thing rips dirt and asphalt like a mother fucker! R-A-D!!!
5 is a north-south freeway that goes from southern California through
Washington State. It’s a major truck route, and some stretches are
pretty desolate. Speed limit is 70 MPH in much of northern California,
and it isn’t unusual for traffic to be moving about 80. I’m heading
northbound doing about 80 in the left lane of a a 2-lane stretch,
passing a pretty steady stream of trucks in the right lane, a safe
distance behind another car doing about the same. Jerk in a Dodge
Charger comes from behind screaming up on my bumper flashing his lights
about half a car length behind me.
The trucks to the right are in a pretty tight convoy and there’s also
another car in front, plus the tailgater is being a complete douche so
I’m in no particular hurry to let him pass. There’s an overpass about
¾ of a mile ahead.
Just then my radar detector gives a brapp-brapp KA band warning
ahead, pretty weak but getting stronger. I give it a few seconds to get
closer, then flash my lights once and the car ahead pulls to the right
between two trucks, as do I.
Jerk in the Charger floors it and passes us doing well over 90 just
as we approach the overpass, finger extended. Radar detector is
screaming now. Sure enough, CHP is lurking on the onramp and comes
zooming down with lights blazing after the Charger. Gave him a nice wave
as I went by, couldn’t have timed it better.
We have been working on a couple dirt scooters to race at this years Barber Vintage Festival. Who else will be there this year?
