Aimere, Flores to Labuan Bajo.
The drive to Labuan Bajo is the pleasant curvy road that I remember. Beautiful and relaxing. It rains and gets so misty that I can barely see but I press on slowly. Need to get there tonight. The weather clears up. I almost flip the bike. Forgot that I don't have Anna's weight over there anymore and need to watch those right hand turns. Always a risk with a sidecar. I drink a bottle of water that smells like a lifelong smoker. Dad's mustache. Descending in to LBJ is steep and curvy. The rear (drum) brakes lock on but are fine again after a cool down.
