Monday, 8 August 2005. Mt.
First thing in the morning I took the Road King to Harley
Davidson of Tucson for an oil change. Ron led the way, which was
fortunate. The storms of the night before had closed some roads .
In many places, bridges are not built over dry riverbeds and streams
(called washes), so that when a heavy rain does occur, water flows over
the road and may close it for a day or so. Ron knew alternate routes.
Although I had originally planned to just wait for the bike, decided to
leave it there. When I picked it up later that afternoon, they
charged $100 — for an oil change? I
bought the mandatory t-shirt though.
Ron and Hal then took us to the top of Mt. Lemmon in the Santa Catalina
Mountains on the northern outskirts of Tucson. The ride up started
misty with low lying clouds which we thought might make the vistas less
viewable. But it did clear somewhat as we were going up, and by the
time we came down it was mostly fine.
Ron cooked another great meal -- roast beef -- and we watched
Shirley Valentine. Ron and Hal's movie collection is impressive!
|Distance: No riding miles.
