Frickin’ Potter! The guy woke up at 7AM in Ocotillo, geared up and woke up everyone!!! It's all good though. Potter, the Fuel TV guys and I all went out for an early filming session and Potter hit a few sick jumps and found some virgin sand to roost for the cameras.
Brian Deegan and Twitch rolled out too. Deegs just got back on the bike after his broken wrist a few months back and was killing it on a bunch of techy whip jumps. Twitch's leg is still on the mend, but he manage to bring out his 70 and he and Seth, the crippled crew, charged out and went trail riding while everyone else was riding big bikes. For a couple cripples with broken bones they were going up some crazy ass cliffs!
After a solid day of riding we loaded up at sunset and hit the road on the Harley’s! Laughlin was the destination. So, with that in mind and a few hundred miles to go, we pinned it up the I40 to the 95. Somewhere outside of Needles, CA Potter ran out of gas! It could have had something to do with him going 110mph for an hour straight, but who knows… all I know is that he had to push his Harley a couple miles to get some gas. Granted, it was mostly down hill, but when the road did hit a flat spot watching him running along side the bike pushing it was pure comedy…you’ll see the video real soon!
Everyone was beat from the long ride to Laughlin, but magically once we hit the smokey air of the casinos suddenly nobody was tired anymore, but very thirsty for a beer or two. Well you can imagine how that went….
