EL DIABLO RUN 2011 Day 2: Still USA bound, troubles troubles troubles...

 My ride for the El Diablo Run 2011: 2007 Sportster, customised with stickers and prototype Biltwell Mustache bars and Kung Fu Grips. Had to bumpstart the bike after 5 minutes on the road, not a perfect start but no minor troubles, except for a flat fronttire/loose tank/loose mirror and stoplight stayed on all the time.
 Wes had big problems before we even reached the border, he blew up his Thriumph and was designated to the chase truck for the rest of the EDR.
 This all original 1966 Ironhead XLCH was my favourite bike in the EDR, made it to Ensenada but didn't make it home. Magneto problems was keeping this bike of the road back home. Awesome bike!
Last stop before the border of Mexico. One of the baggers felt down on some dude's foot and it was the end of the EDR for him, broken foot and a nice ride with the ambulance... No the EDR is not for pussies!
