The hardier folks were already doing the morning jog as I loaded up my gear. It was crisp and sunny so I chose to wear the liner inside my jacket along with heavy gloves. Even the Knox Cold Killer axeman's hood was recalled to duty. I like being warm better than being chilled. Maybe that's why the BB has heated grips.
Before leaving I checked the oil level - as expected it was down a tad but not bad so I topped it off. That's when I noticed the small spot under the bike, same as I'd seen in the past whenever it's been run hard during hot weather. It didn't worry me but I'll call the dealer and ask about it when I get home.

I paused long enough in Camas Valley to remove the jacket liner - it was heating up again - and to call Jerry Smith to see if he wanted to do lunch. We decided our old haunt The Broiler in Coquille would be easy for both of us and that's what we did.
Finally home, there was no one on hand to greet me, Linda will be in Sunriver for one more day and the doggies are incarcerated in the doggie hotel so they'll have to wait till tomorrow.
This was a fun tour, the weather where I chose to ride was great. I did get rained on a few times but not all that much so no complaints. My favorite parts were riding through the Indian reservations and I think Linda and I will retrace the same journey in our little RV. Even the dogs can go along.
So that's it, I'd post a picture of the bike's odometer but you'll recall it went south several days ago. The good part is the GPS odometer worked fine and recorded 4148 total miles, a daily average of 276.54 miles for 15 days - one day I didn't ride. Altogether not a bad run on a sidecar.
I have a feeling a replacement GPS may be in the near future, this guy has been zapped way too many times and of late has developed a habit of shutting down randomly. Not good but it's lasted several years so no complaints on my part. Maybe Linda will buy me a new one for my birthday. How about it Honey, sound good? Eh?
