Day 2 No brakes in Bute!!
Had a great evening with my bro and the Newprincess. She is at that a princess. Holy, I feel special, I think something, wether its a pair of glasses, a drink a sweater, then it is there,.. Spoiled!! Enough already, lol
Omg, this is what she made me, can you believe it?? What a surprise! My cuddly blankie, it got sent back home!
We have already down sized our stuff. Dianna called her hubby to come pick up 4 large size packets… Over packed or what!!. We could probably have even sent more.
We got up nice early and were on the road by 7 am!!
That is a record for us I think. We decided we wanted to beat the heat and cover some ground, with still enough stops to do a little fundraising. Speaking of stopping, every time I can to a stop sign, it felt so sloppy. I told Dianna some is wrong, I am not stopping very smooth, guess I am out of practice. When we came around the sharp corner I went to use my back brake but there was none, I got Wilbur to take it for a burn. Prognosis…Let’s find the nearest HD!!
So here we are after an hour still waiting for it to get started. Our day is done. Dianna and Eric are off to find a place to stay. No worries, we will get off to an early start tomorrow to arrive in time to meet everyone that is arriving on Wed.
Just another part of the adventure, hoping it is not too expensive, but it will be what it will be!
okay lil update…4 hours in the dang HD… Sheesh, the clutch cable, wore a whole in the brake line. I tell ya, I have never seen anything like it, 5 guys standing, gawking about the bike, admiring it, and talking about the Road Queen emblem they had never seen. Shyte!! So anyhoo, we are not happy campers at the moment, well now we are, but then we were’t. Especially we got caught in a thunder, lightning and wind storm off to the hotel. So here we are in Bute tonight, praying for good weather and an early uneventful day tomorrow. The Conga IS COMING…. Shell tomorrow!!!!! Need to get on with the fundraising, the first couple days not going so well and now we are in a rush to get to Shell….It will be what it will be… love ya all, thanks for Going with the Flo!!
Tune in tomorrow
