Better late then never right?! Any who...

Here is my show and tell in pic form. Enjoy yo...

The trip took place Nov. 17th to the 24th to San Francisco, Las Vegas and the City of Orange. A whole week on the road before Thanksgiving. I used my truck to haul the scoot from city to city. Why? Why not! It's a unique perspective to view a city on 2 wheels as opposed to 4 wheels. Plus I hate having to roam around a parking lot looking for space for the truck. Just time wasted doing that. And I could lane split which came in handy.

The 4 Wheels of Fury is all loaded up for the 3 City Tour. First stop, San Francisco.
Image

It pays to have a pickup, tie down straps and a Ready Ramp to keep the 2 Wheels of Destruction secured.
Image

Mission Street in Daly City leading to downtown San Francisco.
Image

My first encounter with a self-cleaning toilet at Coit Tower. Wooow...
Image

It takes 3 minutes for it to clean it self even if you pee only.

Image

I'd crap my pants if I went on this ride.
Image

Image

Loaded up to hit the road again.

Before leaving we would hit up Mt. Charleston located about 35 miles (56 km) northwest of Las Vegas.

How'd that bike run for you in Vegas? When my friend and I where there about 2 months ago we had a hell of a time keeping em running well. We where only there for 17 hours so jetting was not on our mind.

As far as issues with Vino I did have a dead battery by the time I arrived in Las Vegas. A couple of days before Vegas, I rode San Fran and it rained! Everything got soaked, including the scoot and some rain got to the battery compartment.

I noticed after that rain ride when I started it up, it took a little more effort to turn the motor. I didn't think much of it until I tried to start it at Vegas and the battery was completely dead. The kicker was that I forgot to bring my battery tender. So I ended up buying another battery and it worked fine after that. It was cold in Vegas at that time but better than dealing with the rains in San Fran.

Oh snap! That's right kids... C-Dawg is going on the road AGAIN after a 2 year hiatus. Last time I ventured into the mean streets and the future site of Star Fleet Academy, San Francisco. This was also the city where Magneto magically brought the Golden Gate Bridge over to Alcatraz to open up free tours. Then to the home of the "Pawn Stars", Las Vegas. And finally the "OC." That was back in November 2010. :monkeyscoot

It's now June of 2012, summer is just days away and gas is cheap... ROAD TRIP TIME and another of C-Dawg's 3 City EPIC RIDE 2; "Smokin' Aces Tour." :DomoRuck

"Smokin' Aces?!?" This is the kick ass movie where Buddy "Aces" Israel was hiding out at the "Nomad Casino", also known as MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa, from all sorts of cray-cray peeps like Sharice Watters (Taraji P. Henson) who had the big .50 cal and Georgia Sykes (Alicia Keys), The Swede, Agents Richard Messner (Ryan Reynolds) and Donald Carruthers (Ray Liotta) and the psychotic neo-Nazi Tremor brothers :killa: , Darwin (Chris Pine), Jeeves (Kevin Durand), and Lester (Maury Sterling) and a few other characters I forgot to mention. I'm not counting Jack Dupree (Ben Affleck) and his partner, "Pistol" Pete Deeks (Peter Berg) because they got their asses killed by the Tremor brothers before the s*** got real. :chow:

To make a long story short, I'm going to ride around Lake Tahoe and look for the sites Smokin' Aces was filmed, especially the Nomad Casino which is located in Stateline, Nevada. :banger2:

Then I'm off "The Biggest Little City in the World" Reno, Nevada. Sources say, Wikipedia, "Kingpin" was filmed here in Reno, along with some other films I could careless for. So I'm going to attempt a visit to the "National Bowling Stadium" where it was filmed. :pimp

After Reno, we'll see what happens. So stayed tuned yo... :banger:

Hey yo... I know this is Hella, HELLA LATE but I'm finally putting the pics from the 3 City EPIC RIDE 2; "Smokin' Aces Tour" from June of 2012.

As usual when I take big trips I used the truck to haul the scoot and where ever I stop I unload and start roaming around and explore. This time it's Lake Tahoe, Reno and Bishop.

The tools and gadgets I brought with me.

- Gerber Multi-tool, portable fan, burner, another multi-tool with a fork, flashlight, carabiner, rechargeable solar cell, tire checker and boonie hat.

Hey ya'll. I hate to have to post this, but I figured I should let all the SD riders who have met him know.

C-Dawg passed away New Year's Day. His family is going to have a small private service but are planning a Celebration of Life sometime in Feb. I'll update anyone who wants details over Whatsapp.

For those that don't know him, C-Dawg was one of the first SD riders I met and he welcomed me into the family with open arms. A stand up dude and a hell of a rider. He was also very involved with Filipino relations and heritage celebrations here in SD. He touched a lot of people and will be missed.

Take a little time and check out his three city adventure in the Epic Rides section.

My heart goes out to c-dawgs bikerbrothers and family. Thanks for sharing these adventures.
