2005 Doug Bennett Memorial Ride

Phoenix to Sedona Arizona - USA

April 30-May 1, 2005

Entry into Jerome AZ with snow-capped San Francisco peaks in the background

 


For our 2005 event we retraced our original 2000 DB ride path back to Sedona from Phoenix. The weather was absolutely perfect for a weekend of riding. We had 25 bikes show up for the event, everything from Vmaxes to Goldwings with a few Euros thrown in to spice up the mix. After a 200 mile ride to Sedona over some of the best roads and most beautiful scenery in AZ, we spent the night in downtown Prescott AZ and mixed it up on world famous Whisky Row Saturday night.

Brian's face would have fit in this pic if he could have lost another 40-50 lbs on that Adkins diet last year  (see Topanga 2004 pics). His poor little R1 would be happier too...

Saturday night in Prescott on Whiskey Row This couple made it out for last years DB Memorial ride and got the 'best duo' karaoke award.  We were almost happy when they showed up again this year.

"Dude, it's that same roach. He's been watching me all night." "I'm Tex and this is my sidekick Bjorn" Emerging country singer Nathan Nebraska & his band members. Nate graciously accepted an Outlaw shirt and wore it that evening for his performance at Matt's Saloon

 

Russell kept showing off his recent sex-change operation Sat night at Matt's Saloon. The bouncers were OK with it though because they thought he/she was

HOT!

Used to be dudes would arm-wrestle over the gal. Now they arm-wrestle the gal (and get their asses kicked) Rumor has it this guy woke up in a room other than his own (but at least somewhere in his hotel) Sunday morning.
