Several years ago I rode from Dallas to a few miles east of Phoenix on US 60. That’s where I met Dan. He and I headed back east into New Mexico. The day was a scorcher with the temperature approaching one hundred degrees. By the time we reached Apache Creek the sign at the local store stating COLDEST BEER IN TOWN fetched us in for a cool one. As Dan took refuge beneath the overhang I snapped a photo of him and our mounts—my CB-900C and his Blackbird.
