Bike Out of Commission

Another quick post, and another without pictures. Late night tonight getting into Ft. Bragg, CA, and it was a long drive getting here. Yep, you read that right, drive, not ride. Yesterday morning Bev's bike lost its drive shaft, and is now out of commission. We had to wait in Tillamook, OR for her uncle to come pick up the bike, and then this morning her and Tim went and rented a U-Haul to get the bike back to Southern California.

I rode in the truck with Bev to keep her company/help with the driving, and also to get some rest from the bike myself. The cold I picked up back in Idaho is still with me, and I was hoping that with a little extra rest from the road it would clear up. We'll have to see how I'm feeling tomorrow.

We went the same route as the boys, and managed to stay ahead of them the entire day be getting a head start and making fewer stops. We knew they would be excited about all the twisties, and they were. They were pumped when they pulled into the hotel only minutes after us. I'll write more about the trip later.

Aw. Well, I hope you start to feel better soon. I'm sure Doug misses having you on the bike with him for the trip.
