Roy & Greg's Great Adventure
Greg Field and I rode from Seattle WA, to New Mexico and back again for the 1999 MGNOC National Rally.
Greg rides an Eldorado, and I'll have to check for sure, but I think it is a '74 LAPD model.
Great bike at National
|The Spiral Hiway in Washington is a "historic highway" and not used anymore, except by crazy motorcyclists. It was a total Blast.||
A small portion of "The Spiral Highway" amazing!
I was fortunate enough to find someone selling used clutch parts!
I was stuck and had to do a total clutch removal and installation. Greg was my riding partner, and he insisted on helping me do this job - all 6 hours of it. Now, that is a true blue riding partner ain't it!! I'd ride through hell with Greg Field. Thanks Greg.
We left the engine "in frame" parted and replaced clutch in frame. The flywheel was lightened and had the timing marks ground off. Sure made it challenging, but I had many volunteers suggesting fixes. In the end I had provided some great entertainment and did get the Ambo W/Attitude back on the road again.
His is the black / white bike show to the left.

|Although Greg and I did get to take a few pictures both of us were more interested in having a "real vacation" and most often we enjoyed ourselves and forgot about taking pictures or writing. The old Loop frames did GREAT - as would be expected.|
|In Idaho we ran into some old friends Bill and Cheryl Hartman (Owner/Operators of the Boville Inn Idaho ), we hooked up for several hundred miles of riding together. Boy, what an unexpected pleasure.|
