TRAILER THE BEST OF THE WEST IS COMING

In the next issue we bring you a report of the first Best of the West with the Bear ride. It was certainly a laugh, as these photos try to show; being conducted in up to 49 degree (120 Fahrenheit) heat it was also one hot ride!

Getting around to so many of the American West’s scenic and other attractions was a hoot despite making for some long days, and everyone (the gang was all Aussie except for the guide and driver) got something out of it – some people got more than one thing. Just ask the blokes who were collecting “cards” in Las Vegas… PT

(clockwise from top left) “Hey, it’s a job!” Bears are everywhere, holding signs or American flags or just decorating the place. Very nice! / “Hurry up with that photo! There’s a bottle of San Francisco Steam Beer over there that has my name on it!” / Top level engineering at a roadside stall. It is amazing how quickly the ever present sun warps and destroys timber. / Wooden’t it get you? Nobody in the West seems to be offended by wooden Indians; and why wood you when the carving has as much personality as this? / Who wins the Russian babushka lookalike contest? Our MOTORCYCLIST neck tubes were voted Most Useful Accessory; soaked in icy water they provided welcome relief from the heat.
