Just drove the bus to indio for a concert and my buddy rode his harley while i drove the bus! It was pretty sweet! Bus ran fantastically! drove it around 55-60 on the way there and on the way back we went 70-75 and through phoenix doing 80! That little 1500 single port CRUISES!!!! Heres a picture of us at the border on our way back!

I guess during our cruise back, Mr. Barnes from the samba saw us on his way back to phoenix from the irwindale show and took 2 pictures of us!

Thanks! We camped out for 2 nights! It was awesome! There was only one other bus at the event and it happened to be a slammed early bay! I talked to the dude for awhile and he was pretty fucking cool! unfortunately didn't take any pictures because I was to shit faced to even think about it! Got a SHIT load of compliments about the bus which is always awesome and talked to a few older folks who told me stories about how they used to have a bus and how they would do cross country trips in theres and so on! Super kewl!

Hell ya I did! On the back of a flat bed! The engine over heated 10 miles west of blythe. I let it cool down for an hour, fired it back up and there was a REALLY BAD knocking noise coming for the inside of the case. So its now over at chirco getting the engine ripped apart

Yeah that desert is killer!! I drove the bus from ABQ to LA last week and it took 19 1/2 hours! I had to sleep 2 hours when I started hallucinating giant tumble weeds going across the freeway. We drove across the mojave at 2 pm at 100+ degrees, on the grades I was down to 40mph to keep the oil temps below 220. If you make it out to Vegas in October I recommend oil temp, oil pressure and cylinder head temp gauges so you know when to slow down or stop before its too late.

Glad you made it back alive, Im sure the captain will rise again!

Good idea on the temp gauges. The bus will rise again for sure! Its been around for 47 years, so its just taking a nap right meow! Octo was AWESOME by the way! It was like going to the best porn convention in the world! The classic was kewl also! Scored some amber colored head light lenses! I put them on and they are fucking sweet!
