Today I picked up Laurie from the airport in Phoenix and I did not want to go to the motel in northern Phoenix first so I had plenty of time to kill. I needed a new front tire so I stopped at BTM in Show Low. They treated me right and had a great price for parts and service for 40 to Phoenix riders. I know George Bageant got a drive shaft there and they had the part in stock. Will definitely stop here again if I am in the area and need Gold Wing parts or service.

The photos below are at the Salt River Canyon. My dad really likes this place as he drove through here back in the 60’s before I-40 existed. Be sure to click and drag the 360 photo below.

Drone Photos

I am on my second DJI drone and love it. I have the Magic Air drone and hoped to play with it more in New Mexico on lonely Route 66 but the winds were too strong. But stubbornness won and I got it out on US 60 in Arizona. The photo at the top of this blog and the photos below were taken with the drone at a wide spot in the road. Be sure to click and drag around in the photo to see a 360 view.
