Hey Paul, hate to hear you are having to detour back home, I've been following for a while, great report. I live on the east side of Birmingham AL, if you are coming thru on your way back you have a free place to stay here. I have a spare bedroom, garage to park your bike and tools, tire changer, etc if you need to do any maintenance. Got plenty of deer meat in the freezer if you give me notice my girlfriend and I will get some deer chili going in the crock pot for dinner. I'll pm you my contact info.
Ride safe and stop in if I'm on your way. Would love to hear some stories and have a toddy with ya.
Ha, I'm thinking I have you mixed up with one of the other guys I'm following on another ride report. What can I say, I have "oldhymers"....your home is in LA right? Oh well, if you ever need an overnight spot in B'ham, the offer stands.
Hope things get squared away quick.
