So I did indeed manage to get the bike strapped in. The right side is a little easier as there is more room to maneuver plus the door is there which gives me even more room. That ratchet on the right side is one of the better ones and the one that I have the most trouble with. God help me I suppose I'll get it off ?? LOL
The left side of the bike is far more difficult because of the lack of space, due to the spare tire being in the way. So I used one of the new ratchet I bought as I find them easier to work with.
Yup, Well that's about as good as I can do. She's ready to go. Certainly don't feel as confident about it though as I did when my Brother/Nephew did it for me. Hoping it won't tip over.
So the last look around the campsite to make sure I hadn't forgotten something. This picture shows CLEARLY a very important thing I had forgotten !!! Can you see it......don't scroll down yet.....Can you see it ??
Checked the other side....yup, everything looks good to go.
So I pulled out of my campsite and decided to stop on the road - just to have one more last look. Oh, SEE....I had left a piece of board on the ground....silly me.
Earth to Denise....anybody home ??? Lights are on....nope, nobody home 'cause even when discovering this piece of board it STILL didn't occur to me ! DUHHHHH
And then I see it......I had forgotten to put the levelling jacks up !! They were totally BENT !! Why are all my mistakes so costly !!! I will now have to get them fixed or replaced. What a mess. I rolled them up as far as they would go and proceeded on.
I just had to take a pic of this 1923 Model T, owed by one of the Camp Hosts and it runs !! He said he's modified it and now it can go 60 mph. Didn't do 60 mph back in the day did it !
A stop to empty the tanks, so now I don't have to worry about that for awhile.
