123 ran into 292 then i turned north on 21

http://www.motorcycleroads.com/75/27...nic-Byway.html

i'm booking up 21, bikes running awsome, i know soon after ozone i gotta turn left to get to orak, passed alittle store/station thinking i could fill up in orak, after all dark is fast aproaching. As i blow tru ozone i see ozone burger, emm i've heard thats good & i'm hungery, a fatman shouldn't go with out food this long. they even had alittle shed ya could pull under, the sky is looking pisse off

Noo i wanna orak burger

Not much later the bottom drops out of course in true red bud fashion, i waited till i was soaked plum tru to pull over and put on some rain pants. Jump back on the bike and she's running on one cyclinder, power on anyway

cough, sputter 2 cyclinders does this a couple of times.

She's running fair coughing ever now and then i've missed my turn and on reserve. I 'm thinking i'll stop in fallsville at a parts place get seafoam & then gas.

Fallsville had a small store with gas, super nice guy told me a "back road" to get to orak.

Told me about the sandwiches he makes there. ( If anyone ever trys one let me know it sounded good)

BUT NOOOO, i'm on a cheese burger mission

Top the tank off, turn onto 16 for around 2 miles turn onto patterson springs road, soon after the bottom drops out again 3 miles in slipping and sliding worring about falling on my bad shoulder,

cough , sputter & old blue dies i mess around empty the bowls etc...... as i'm squatted down beside the bike i notice the ditch is over it's sides and over my ankles.

pasture on each side of the road i'm on little hill i'll see how far i can push/coast it. After alittle while i hit the starter and she fires running good . Up a hill and she dies again.



an hour or so later rain's letting up. I've walked down the road alittle ways looking for a place to pitch my tent looking like i might be here for awhile

shoulda got a bottle of water at store, wait a minute shoulda got one of those sandwiches the guy was telling me about

It’s refreshing to see a man with his priorities in order. It’s a rare commodity these days.
