Day 3 9-24-2013

With every morning since arrival, I walk across the street (HWY 50) to Safeway an get a starbucks coffee.
Then come back to the room download / upload pics.

So on this day we have just Chilled and relaxed off bike.
we did ride the backroad (pioneer tr) to Heavenly Village
and at lunch at the Base camp pizza co. Awesome 32oz Drafts. Came back to our room and just Kicked it on the Hammock








Today was a relax day. Tommorrow we will ride to my Parents house in Spanish springs,NV. Once there, we will be enjoying the 2013 Street Vibrations rally.
Any Inmates in the Reno / Sparks / Carson city area during / participating feel free to drop in Here or send a pm. I will continue to post daily progress toward the ultimate goal of under a 1k miles . Today around the Lake has been killer windy with white caps all day long, it blew many pine needles into the heated pool
which I surface cleaned, then we used the pool and spa.


Day 3 Complete

Day 4 9-25-2013

Day 4 started off real fast clean up, check out of the room, started our 50 mile ride to reno @ 0930 with 37 degree temperature. 8 miles into HWY 50 , wifey taps my shoulder and points to the dead instrument panal.
no speedo, no fuel level, no oil pres, nothing at all.
Kind of weird to ride a fairing bike and no instruments or
indicator lights and the speedo buried at 0.....
In my head I said keep going...and I did. then the bike
went into limp mode and minutes later shut off all together.

After bump starting my Hawg on the downhill, turned back around and kept our ride now to the Reno HD.
dropped it off for a 5 hour warranty job.
the bike today got it's 3rd voltage regulator
a new battery. The primary pulled off and stator replaced.... all within warranty.

we made it to my parents house after a little rain on the
ride home from the Reno HD shop.
Finally, my bike has not seen a garage since we left home
on sunday

My parents are into Rods

56 Chevy Bel-air

32 Ford 3 window coupe

Day 4 was a real humdinger, but all is well .

Fantastic! I have so many of the same photos over the years and have stayed at that campground. It's been far too long.

Thanks for the memories.
