Day 7 (Sunday)
Nearly up to date again …..
He only has 10 magic 12 rallies to ride now …….
He had an early start to the day and headed back over to Memphis, Nashville & Knoxville where he thought he deserved a 4 star cozy hotel with good bar food ….
WHEN HE GETS THE EXTRA LEAVE FROM WORK NEXT YEAR FOR OUR TRIP, HE CAN TAKE ME THERE.
Who knows, with the relaxing of the German law, we may be a married couple by then ….
As has been the case for the last few days, the Honda worked fine in the cool, but as soon as it became hot, the problems returned – at least he knows how to sort it and be back on the road very quickly. He ran into a huge thunderstorm In Nashville, which was very welcome.
He’s removed the side panels off the bike to try to keep the pump cool and this has helped apart from the fact that his legs are now slowly cooking – I had this in 2011 crossing Texas. it’s STILL an unpleasant memory, 6 years on ….
And then he helped to further worsen relationships between the USA and Europe ….
He tied the sidepanels onto the luggage rack of his bike – except they had no intention of staying there and nearly hit another rider as they made their bid for freedom ….
I wonder what Donald Trump will “tweet” about that ……
At least the thunderstorm proved that his electrics are waterproof, even without panels. Of course that’s because no-one had the opportunity to sabotage them (like a “certain Bavarian” did to my Tridents electrics last year …… )
After 1400 km, he called it a day as he thinks he has a cunning plan (who does he think he is, Baldrick ? Lol !!) that should give me easily finisher status.
Leg 3 is all about the multipliers and if you apply them cleverly, you get lots of points.
With the lack of pressure for anything other than a finish now being the goal, he tells me he feels like he is on vacation – obviously a rather shitty vacation though !!
hey have fantastic cheesecake here! This morning, I just planned for the first two days, I wanted to leave as early as possible.
Right, that’s just about bringing everything up to date other than (and I may have already mentioned this), ROBERT – BUY YOURSELF A TRIUMPH ……..
Keep those messages of support coming (and spread the word).
He is nearly there – just 4 days to go (4 German Butt Rallies, back to back ….. sounds easy doesn’t it ?)
