A Titanic Ride
We went to a restaurant
Then, we went to the theatre
I took this before the play started, so it was legal. Any blur is because Dianne was kicking me for taking it.
A Walk Around the Pool
I have mentioned that the backyard took a lot of work. Well, it looked pretty good right after:
I did the deck sanding and staining, but the flowers are Dianne's work.
Our Gardena watering stick broke
But Gardena replaced it at no charge. They are located near the airport so I did have to battle traffic, but it cost $53 and looked like the glue failed. Remember, those of you who like adhesive for fastening, the old saying is "all glue joints fail". Have you bought a new car recently? Well, ... .
Now, I wonder, carbon fibre for airplanes,.. Better think of other things.
Did not ride today ... Battery
Well, John B says he thought my bike started funny a year ago, but I don't recall him saying anything at the time. Bob Leong mentioned it too when I was there a few days later. Today, it started great, I moved it out of the garage, left the ignition on for a while, and got click click noises. The battery tender went into storage mode after only 1.5 hours, and it started right up. Still, it's time.
But, the dealer is moving to a new building, so it will be next Tues or so...
East Trip To Start Soon!
Perhaps Aug 5 will be a good day to depart. Gaspe, NB, maybe PEI. Depends on how I feel.
Currently loading the bike. I'm going to take camping gear, but will spend some nights in motels. Better beds and showers.
Trying to figure out how to pack the bike. I need to keep weight low or I have trouble getting it upright off the sidestand if on any slope to the left. Added another layer of insoles to the boots too. Short legs need all the eighths of an inch available.
I should be able to show some pics of how I ended up packing the bike next week.
No firm itinerary. No reservations. No real plan. Should be perfect. Weather? Well, who knows.
