"Why Kate, you're not wearing a bustle. How lewd." Doc Holliday

640 mile Harley ride bonanza.........

 First destination, TOMBSTONE AZ the site of the "Gunfight at the O.K. Corral" involving 2 famous cowboys Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday, etc.  Big Nose Kate was rumored to be a prostitute and linked with Doc Holliday.  The saloon is nice and cool when you've been riding in the 100 degree weather.  They have a lot of memorabilia to look at, live music and of course drinks.....which we needed badly.  No wonder in the old westerns, the cowboys always came in for a drink.  MUST HAVE:  Saloon in the desert.

Want a tan.....ride a Harley.  Getting lots of sun even with mounds of sun screen.  Stopping at every Harley Davidson along the way.  I think I'm starting a HD t-shirt collection.
It's good to ride with friends who want to stop to wet your whistle.
Next major stop BISBEE, AZ an old copper mining town from the late 1800's.  This cooled us off a bit, as Bisbee has a higher elevation and is about 20 degrees cooler.  The town is built around rocky mountains with curved roads.

Great ride with good friends, sites, food, sunshine and booze!
