O die poser sakkie is seker die Harley D sakkie. Yes It is and it works great for my tyre repair kit and pump for ez get-out-and-fix. It is leather and did cost only 9 dollars. You should look on the other side is a $3 bag for water bottle or slangbyt.

P.S. Michnus, I like HD stuff and their culture. But don't tell anybody.

Ok. some more countryside pics




Tombstone, AZ







The dead left by the Urp brothers




a woman not sticking with her man



Ole Geronimo



OK coral gunfight. the story goes that it was Wyatt Earp that was making the crap and not the others. And it was Doc Haliday that caused the gunfight. The other dudes was about to accept their fate and leave Tombstone when doc called Wyatt and as they faced each other, fired a shot in the air where upon the people pulled their guns not knowing what was going on and then Wyatt shot the first and they shot back and the rest is history. He got away for being a sheriff or marchal or something and that doc did not fire at them. So according to the law Wyatt just defended himself. But the others did not want a fight. Bluddy Wyatt, Afterwards I wanted to give him a slap. The only scene accurate in the films about Tombstone was the one where Wyatt was ambushed in the gully. And not one shot did hit him.

Here are some pics of the show.




Doc, shit sturrer




Wyatt Brothers



Scene after the shootout with Doc walking around.



Other of Tombstone



A piss crip in a saloon and the lady of the place. Apparently lady's for hire were looked on with respect those days. Well, I even looked on with respect and some lustfull feelings which i should not talk about.




After that I poped into Mexico at Douglas border and did a hour riding around. It looks like africa all dirty and not looked after. But nice. I did not stop for photos as I was kinda in a hurry to get to Bisbee.



Some other pics















Going on a mountain trail with Baton Rouge










Had chow in this place, another great baritto



An old forgotten civilization



Bisbee, AZ. now if I ever go missing, this is where you will find me. all I can say is WOW. Old narrow streets like tuscany and nice arty farty people and woman staying there. Free Love rules baby!!!!










OK, the next bunch I am back into the country visiting Morman lake and the grand canyon.

On purpose. Did not want to mingle with people. I dodged them. The fewer the better.

Nope, the route chose me  ::) No I am joking, knew I wanted to get to LA with 2 months. So the rest was ez
