I spent about a week at the VFW, once again for the convenience of getting things done.
The bike needed some repairs – something about a gasket ? or rocker housing ? So I got that got dealt with.
I even fixed that broken screen in the hauler. That was a BITCH to get back in the track.
And I FINALLY got the bike washed. Yes there is even a mobile motorcycle wash in Yuma. My poor girl was so full of desert dust in all it’s little parts. It really needed a good power hose on it. They did a great job. I took the windshield and saddle bags off and spent several hours cleaning those myself giving the bags a good leather cleaner.
But when the temps reach the HIGH 90’S well then it’s no fun for this Northern gal. I finally had to resort to turning on the generator in order to run the A/C, close all the windows and stay inside. Pffft might as well be Winter !! LOL
The problem was that I pulled into the VFW being low on gas. It was very slightly above 1/4 so I figured I didn’t need to gas up until I got back on the road. For those of you that don’t know, there must be a minimum of 1/4 gas in the tank in order for the gennie to run.
So I knew I would have to de-camp and go get gas. Well if I had to do that, and given the extreme heat, I figured I’d just head North a ways. Not that it was any cooler even within a few hours North.
On Friday I had an appointment to get the oil changed in the generator – yes mobile once again. Gotta love that. That’s now good for another year.
One thing Lake Havasu City is NOT – and that is Verizon friendly. Internet connection was mostly non – existent, for some odd reason particularly during the day ?? At night when I eventually got it it was ok.
This morning I managed to capture a rare (rare ? who am I kidding ? the FIRST LOL) sun RISE picture.
See my little boy ? At 7:00AM I was sitting outside having my cuppa. Now you know if you can sit OUTSIDE that early, wearing only a t-shirt, it’s gonna be another HOT day.
Next stop VEGAS BABY !
