Meeting An International Motorcycle Adventurer

On Monday I had the opportunity to meet Gary France (you know, this guy) for coffee.

If you didn't know, he's English, and he's been riding his Harley-Davidson, The Leading Ladies, across the U.S. for the last couple of months.

We didn't have a whole lot of time, but it was great to meet up with him and check out his bike. The Leading Ladies has been decorated with top-notch airbrush portraits of many of the starlets from Hollywood's golden era.

Gary is a great guy and I would have been happy to drag him out for pizza, but he's on a pretty tight schedule, as he's been doing his best to see absolutely everything in the U.S. while he's here.

Now I'm probably going to have to ride a Triumph across England in order to catch up with Gary on his own turf...
