Day 3 - Time to finish the new bike shakedown and try to catch up from a couple of lost days. I got up early to the sound of rain and crash of thunder. Oh well, at least it would be cooler riding today! It didn't take long before I had the stormy weather behind me and sunny skies in front. I scanned the map to the west for a large city that would likely have a KTM dealer so that I could get my 600 mile oil change done and recorded for warranty purposes. Omaha NE had a KTM dealer and I called them and they said they would squeeze me in. I arrived mid afternoon and they got me in and out in good time. I had enough daylight left to make it out of the plains (At last!) and over to Medicine Bow National Forest in Wyoming for my first night of camping. Finally, things are coming together for me on this trip! :) My first western campsite. Sunset was spectacular. ... and the next morning during a walk around the place I came across these three locals. I broke camp and got the bike loaded up. Turned the key and... nothing. No "click", no lights, no instruments. Well ain't this just great I thought to myself (actually, that's the "G" rated version of what I was thinking at the time). Anyways, I got the bike unloaded and started to dig in. Voltage at battery was good, but Ah Ha! Found the negative battery terminal loose. Got it tightened up, turned the key, and was greeted with the smooth purr of the motor. Life is good again. I breathed a sigh of relief and headed south to the Colorado border.
