Sacramento motorsickle swapmeet & Monterey Jazz Festival


We left San Francisco at 5:30am to head out 2 hours in the opposite direction of the Monterey jazz festival we were meant to be at just after midday to 'pop' to Sancramento for a motorcycle swapmeet. It turned out to be an excellent decision as I scored some super sweet bits for the trumpet. Firstly, a set of narrow pullback handlebars, 2 rectangular yellow lensed headlamps, 3 original new 1950's bubble goggles - thats right, none of that bubble screen shinaz here! - and 2 new pistons and rings for the trumpet for spares. super stoked!


We then raced our asses down to Monterey to catch the jazz festival which had some pretty awesome bands, the weather was great and the UK festivals could learn more than a thing or two about organisation from these folks. It was all so easy and made the whole thing really enjoyable.

Tommorow we drive down the Pacific Coast Highway to Solvang. The weather looks good and hopefully there'll be no snags on the road as they say!
