3 ex Royal Marines and an ex Navy Diver visiting California in September for 3 weeks to tour several Western states on Harleys. Any ideas on ""must sees" would be much appreciated. Any fellow Ex Marines or those currently serving who wouldn't mind hooking up for a few beers and chat along the way please feel free to get in touch.

Last time I had a ride back in 68 haven't done it since then, however, last year (09) I picked up my new MC permit, doing Ride with Pride to get myself back into the grove once more before I go. Buying a new Harley so I can make at least one ride to DC. One more check off on my Bucket List.

Thanks for the replys guys. We pretty much have a rough plan of where we wanna go now...working on the old rule that you gotta have a plan in the first place before you can change anything. Rushmore may be a little too far as there is so much to see closer in. We're arriving in LA on 20th Sept and pretty much cruising around California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona. We will be in Vegas for two days 2/3 Oct. Total time is only 15 days i'm afraid but hey...better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick !! Any Marines (ex or still serving) who wanna meet for a few beers along our route during that time drop me a line, or if anyone knows of a specific US Marines motorcycle website we could get in touch with that would also be very much appreciated.
Regards to all

The bike with bite: Alligator killed in US wildlife cull is reborn as 'GatorBike'
Daily Mail UK ^ | 14th February 2010

How do you outrun an alligator that has a top speed of more than 120mph? Thankfully this one doesn't bite anymore but 'GatorBike' as it has been dubbed is still going to turn heads and set pulses racing as it eats up the highways. The custom-made bike, crafted from the skin and skull of a real alligator that was culled by authorities to keep their numbers down, has been created to raise funds for a wildlife charity.
Jim Jablon, owner of the Wildlife Rehabilitation of Hernando (WROH) in Florida, devised the GatorBike to raise funds for his centre. WROH rescues exotic pets that have been neglected or abused by their owners and either releases them back into the wild, re-homes them or cares for them on site.
He said: 'All those skins from culled gators usually get pinned up in people's yards so I thought why not put one to good use.'
Jim has worked with the animals at his rehab centre for twelve years and is looking for funds so that he can expand to care for more confiscated and abandoned bizarre pets. His collection of friends includes Zoro the black and white ruffed lemur, Dozer the lynx and Artic the albino Burmese python.

'Zoro, Dozer and Artic were all in very bad shape when they came to the sanctuary,' said Jim, 45, of Spring Hill, Florida.
'They were malnourished and petrified but we fed them up and now they're very happy creatures," he said.
The GatorBike was made by Swedish craftsman and leather expert Benny Ohrman, 60, who spent a year perfecting its scaly contours.
The skin is detachable but the head is fixed permanently into the handlebars and has the speedometer and other gauges implanted into the back of the skull. The custom-made bike has a powerful Ultima engine and cost Jim £51,000 of his own money to build.
'We even gave the lower parts a slick, alligator skin paint job,' said Jim. 'It's quite a work of art. You can't ride anywhere on that thing without being stopped by people. It turns a lot of heads.' Tickets for the raffle cost $100 (£75) and can be bought at Jim's website. Only 1000 tickets are being sold and anyone from any country can enter.
'We wanted to give everyone the chance to have the GatorBike,' said Jim.
Gatorbike will be raffled and a winner drawn in May in Fort Lauderdale. Jim plans to print off every entry, place them in a pool full of 'gaters and model Amara Tamura, 22, dive in and fetch a winner at random.
'It's not dangerous,' he said. 'We're not going to attach cooked chicken to her or anything.'

Doc told me to keep 4 wheels under my butte, but I aint turning in my MC license. Waiting to see what the future holds.
I browse the Triumph web site now and then and once in awhile I'll watch the local dealership's infomercial. Not so bad with the 2 feet of snow up here in Maine at the moment, but come spring I'll be jonsein'.
