The plan today was to do odds and ends here in Las Vegas but I got stuck at a BMW shop for a good part of the day getting new tires put on my bike. I also screwed up my bike by frying a relay when I was replacing/installing a turn signal myself. This is the one that broke in Death Valley at Ubehebe Crater. Let’s just say I did something stupid and leave it at that. Anyway that cost me about $70 to have fixed and I don’t want to go into the tire expense. Tread was low though. No choice. Blown tires aren’t part of my plan for this trip. Because the bike stuff took so long, I wasn’t able to run my errands unless I wanted to be Las Vegas roadkill during rush hour.
The highlight of the day was once again, meeting new people. David Earl and Bill from a bike club that I am in, met me for lunch. Basically we slammed how little it seems that BMW mechanics know. Anyway it was a good time. Yesterday Bill was nice enough let me use his garage to do some maintenance on my bike that was needed.
Like I said in my last post…GOOD PEOPLE.
I plan to get up early tomorrow and get errands done and hopefully hit the strip.
