The Best laid plans.........

Updated: Feb 17, 2020

Don't survive contact with reality. Mark and I took the bikes out for a shakedown run before we left of about 25 miles. All was good until we were returning home about a mile away from it, the rear brake on Mark's bike locked up and brought him to a sudden (and safe) stop. We messed around with it and were able to get the brake to release. But at that point, were no longer comfortable launching a 3,000 mile trip with an iffy bike. So back up plans were put into action. I am riding my bike and Mark is driving my car. So we made to war torn Corpus Christie, Texas (I mean wow, this town is in bad shape) We are staying in a former crack house now a water front hotel.
