    We make it back ok to the motel , about 70 miles of the first day of being a sidecar pilot . I took it very slow and easy . It's a differant beast to say the least .

    I do have to say that Wyler , Kate went WAY over the top make this a true unforgetable memory . Two brand new tires , oil filters , lines , brakes etc all new and the list goes on and on . I can't say enough about how nice this rig is set up for me and my wife . Good people and may the be blessed with the new bike to them coming to them from Michigan .

    Well my ass gets sore and I wanted a Russell Day long saddle , but not gonna happen this trip sooo here's what I did .

    I got a http://www.bedbathhome.com/323/as-seen-on-tv-forever-comfy-gel-seat-combination-cushion.html

    Comfy Pillow from Walmart and used my cargo net I got from Aerostich to hold it in place . Then I put the Aerostich sheep skin pad over that to cover up the knots on the net . Works pretty good . No problems with height as the seat was a LOW anyway and I don't put my feet down :wink: .

    Thought I wouild share this . This winter I will be getting a Russell though . Another one for my bucket list .

    I want to add I am taking some of DaveBig's advice and whenever I start to get tired I quit riding for the day , so I hopefully don't make a mistake .

    At Springfield , Mo for the night . OMG it's feking hot and muggy out . So I got a room with a outside pool and told the manger that the pool sold the room :( ,,, the feking asshat didn't tell me it was closed for the day :cry . I broke my rule about bitching and told him about it :evil he said "was the state" bah BAH bah . I told HIM he "could have told me it was closed" and I walked out of the office not saying another word .

    So far the weather while hot atm is dry , looks like the rain if we get some will pass by us during our layover hours and be a bit better in the morning . "Someone" still looking out for us yet .

    I can and will use all the help I can get .

    best spro
