Greetings and Salutations

Salar de Uyuni is my name. I usually go by Lashlaro, a Saturday morning cowboy tv show. Lash wore all black including his hat, carried a bull whip coiled at his waist where a six shooter would normally be seen. And he was a good guy. He didn't kill or maim, but he humiliated bad guys with his whip.
My ride is a 2004 VTX1800N, black cherry red. It's got about 69,000 miles. Mostly medium distance. Those long rides kill my butt.
best ride ever was Los Angeles to PDX in early December. I-5 to Williams. Williams to the 101. Then north to PDX.
Wet! Cold! Frost bite!
Walking into a diner for bfast, slosh! Drip! Gas stn guy followed me around store with a mop.
The trip was like the moron hitting himself in the head with a hammer. He did it because it felt good when he stopped.
That's about it for now.
Folks here and about PDX give me a shout in September/October. I don't regard rain or cold as obstacles to a ride. Snow and ice, probably not nice.
Foto is my beast after sliding on our sides thru a heap of asphalt dumped on the Interstate. That! was a scene!
Cheers

Welcome to this forum. You have the best looking X in the N.

I have to ask . . what is PDX?

When you are young you want what everyone else has . . when you are old you want what everyone else had.

PDX is a local nickname for Portland, Oregon.
It originated with the zoomies, fly guys, airport name. Like LAX which is also kinda lika laxative.
Portland is blessed with many names:
Stumptown
Rose City
My fried brain has wilted in this blistering 85°F summer weather. After a few weeks of this hot, dry, clear sky, sunny stuff, we're ready for some rainy weather to get us back to normal. To me, anything above 75F, not today.
Cheers

Welcome to the VTXASG (VTX Addition Support Group) .... where we gladly support each other's addiction.

Your addiction shows well.

Btw, if you think 85 is a heatwave, come visit to TX. We woke up to nice and balmy 85 this morning. It felt good, drove to work with my sunroof open to soak up the morning sun.

When living in Los Angeles, each summer, August, I made my semi-annual trek to Death Valley.
That was hot! After two or three days of real heat in Death Valley, LA felt realitively cooler.
I left friends and family behind in LA. Each year, I ride I-5 down, stopping along the way to visit. Then, after visiting, I return to the relative sanity of PDX via US 395. 395 is a North/South artery along the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada. No motels. Just catching zzz's at rest stops. It's spectacular. Past Reno, there is a high plateau. Clean, air. You can see for miles, on top of the world. Then Oregon!
Eastern Oregon is dry. The geology here is amazing. Sea creature fossils found high in the mts. Surrounded by active volcanoes. The water in PDX, from the tap, is sweet. It compares with Memphis.
Well, every ride, every town has its own beauty and qualities. US 395 is opportunity to open the throttle, ride, free under open skies. Few cops. Light to no traffic.
Not much freedom left here in the land of the free. Too many of us.
War, famine, disease, will reduce the population. It's an historical precedent. Always happens.

My last reply here: The warm and sincere welcome is thoroughly appreciated.
But I wonder what all this warm and fuzzy does to the mean, dirty, scruffy image.
How's a badass biker gonna survive in the midst of all this?
Thanks guys.
