|Pool side is a good place to be when the wind blows. It is fairly well protected.|
Back at the 5th wheel, I put a few chairs away. Where we are stationed is fairly well protected from the wind but the gusts blow sand and dust around.
|The mid to late afternoon called for a 'stay in the park'. No need to go anywhere.|
|Reading by the pool is a nice pastime. Ear buds, with good iPod music, is a bonus too!|
|Not the 'newby driver' rig - just a pretty shot.|
Not only that, she asked if I could guide her on unitching, dropping and leveling the fiver. She wasn't sure on the process. I learned that she had just bought it (from an estate sale, I believe) and she had nobody to teach her about hitching, unhitching....and the rest of the drill - let alone driving the thing. I assumed the fiver was attached to the truck when she made the deal.

I do have another appointment with a long time motorcycle shop in Cathedral City. The owner, Sam, told me he would figure the problem out simply by doing an electrical fault test and test riding the bike to determine if it is a fuel issue. Whoa....why could the other shops not figure that out. I am at a loss for words on this! I feel as though I wasted several hours with the two shops. The rides to and from the motorcycle shops were pleasant, at least.
The downside to visiting Sam's Cycle Service is that he cannot take me in till next week (Tuesday). His shop is swamped with rush orders for repairs. So....we'll see what, if anything, transpires from that visit. If I cannot get it fixed here, I will ride it, on rare occasions, and take it back home with us to have one of our BC local dealers deal with it.

Yesterday was a beautiful day for riding though....and I did ride for several hours - even with the intermittent sputtering and belching.
All right. That does it from here for now.
Thanks for dropping in.
