Open Mic Saturday

Open_mic_Saturday ride

Well, we’re off on an eight day, 2,600 mile motorcycle ride.  Here’s a map of our ride.  It is subject to change at whim.  We left at 6:30 this morning.  Temperature was supposed to be 49 overnight., so it’ll be chilly for the first few hours, but the weather should warm up and be sunny.  As of now it looks like we might hit some rain on Tuesday in Texas.

With a little luck we should end up near Oklahoma City tonight.  I’ll post if I can.


The night before Texas

MotorcyclesWell, actually, the night before the ride to Texas via Oklahoma and then on to New Orleans and back home.  Nine days and about 1,600 miles, give or take a few.

We got my wife’s motorcycle back last night.  They really couldn’t get it to replicate the problem after they put a new fuse in.  The guy said he took the wiring harness completely out and didn’t see anything that could be a problem.  So he put it all back together and it was still working.  It’s possible that just moving the wires around could solve the problem.

I rode it home last night and the lights kept working.  This afternoon we went for a ride for a couple of hours with a lot of stop and go and some highway driving and no problems.  So we’re taking the bikes.  We go them all packed up and ready to head out first thing in the morning. 

I’ve pre-posted a few things for each day we’re gone.  I plan to post updates during the trip.
