I took some flowers to the Riverside National Cemetery for Mothers Day and it is located along I 215--after I left the cemetery I drove north thru Riverside and San Bernardino to where I 215 joins I 15 at Devore.  I had planned to drive up over the summit to the jct of I 15 and US 395 as there is quite a bit of truck action there but when I passed the scale I noticed what looked like a spot at a McDonalds that overlooked the freeway.  I pulled in there and spent about an hour and got quite a few shots some good some not so. I decided that going further could wait another time and headed back towards home with a stop for lunch at a favorite spaghetti place enroute. the round trip was 156 miles. i plan to get out once a month if possible.

Pascal, I have seen that scheme before, I think it is quite a bit older and pretty sure it is a company truck. Picture is not clear enough to get a truck # but maybe some of the Bison "experts" may help us out here!

Mother's Day, Sunday May 13th I could not find a "Mother's Pizza" truck or anything else like it for that matter so we'll just stick to a standard photo! I do believe this is a KW T700 and I think it is the first one I captured:

That is possibly the sharpest T700 I have seen yet! And with a matching trailer, too - both the rails and the skirts! Can you read the company name, by any chance?

Although I can't make out the name either, the livery belongs to Gosal Transport out of Surrey BC so that's my guess.

They appear to have grown from a couple of T-600's a few years back because I see them quite frequently now.

Rob, it seems as though the past few months i have posted quite a few pictures here for sure, not bad if I'm out and about anyway, I have to admit I've gone in search of a picture (hence the ones taken in the dark) but today, Sunday May 20th I caught a T800 live floor chip hauler not taking a day off!!
