Episode 3: Arizona’s Vortexes, Cowboy Grub and The Fastest Bike Ever

Episode third is up highlighting some of the great times we had in Arizona. We try to “feel” a vortex, eat some cowboy food, taste some Arizona wine, experience a rodeo, and top it all off with something we have never ridden before. Next we head into Mexico!

Leaving the USA

Hiking at Lake Watson in Prescott Arizona

We’re crossing the border into Mexico first thing tomorrow morning, so this will be the last night in the US for quite a while. We really want to thank everyone we stayed with for accommodating us and making us feel so welcome. We have really enjoyed our travels so far and we are looking forward to more continue as we head south. Hasta luego!

Episode 1: Preparation

Hi everyone! We posted our first episode, which covers our preparations for the trip. In fact, we posted TWO videos – we’re making secondary videos called Motobites for events that we don’t have time to include in the full episode. We will go into more detail about a single topic that may be food related, motorcycle specific, or something else entirely.Click on the video when prompted to view the Motobite, and we’ll even provide a link back to the full episode so you can pick up right where you left off.

First day on the road

We had a fantastic first day on the road. It’s been a while since we’ve just been able to enjoy the ride. We spent so much time packing and prepping for the trip, so it’s a relief to just be on the bikes. We stopped for the night in Bakersfield to visit friends for a couple days and hit some of our favorite food spots (Basque!). We’re currently editing the first episode, so we’ll have it up soon.

Going Away Party

One month till our departure, we had an early Going Away / Birthday / Latin Themed Potluck / Moving Out Party.

It was a lot of fun giving away some of our stuff to our friends and family and the food was excellent. This was likely the last time I would make my smoked ribs (but with a latin rub) and people brought lots of interesting latin themed foods like empanadas, chorizo rolls, peruvian potatoes, and tres leche cake. Along with the american standard of Chips and Salsa, Guacamole, grilled corn and skirt steak tacos.

We still have 1 liter of Tequila that needs a good home.

We should have another party when we get back and see what kinds of new foods we will have discovered.
