AF1

After stuffing our faces with the best brisket I’ve ever had we headed to AF-1 which is an Aprilia dealership that has supported our little RS50 motorcycles with parts for 15 years +

Steve @ AF-1 gave us a cool tour of the new facility starting with his super sweet Aprilia RS125 GP bike.

In the shop they were working on a really nice Aprilia RS250 cup bike.

The Aprilia RS50 up on the top shelf was a testbed for some of the first performance parts available for the RS50’s

Ari managed to muster a smile after picking up the Hog

Houston

After fleeing New Orleans with Gordon hot on our heels, we managed to make it to Houston relatively dry. Ari found some cheap $15 Tix to the Houston Astros game at Minute Maid Field so we decided to check it out.
Dinner nearby the stadium, Pizza and Salmon Salad
A view inside the park from our awesome $15 seats!
My first Shake Shack experience was a 1020 calorie astro blast at the park.

DC

After our Cheesesteak day, we ended up in Baltimore for the night. The next day we made the short trip down to our nations capitol for some sightseeing.


While in DC we traded our big bikes for Lime bikes to make the adventure a little more fun and easy.

After sightseeing it was time for lunch!
