6th May

I rode up the Interstate to Jorge & Sheila’s house. It was 100 miles or so – no pictures – if you need to see what it looked like, go and take a picture of your local motorway then cut & paste into here ;).

I arrive to find Jorge had just left Never mind – the package on the doorstep is from BMW of Chicago – I go and buy the oils for the service and get to work on the driveway. Jorge arrives as I’m cleaning the brakes – we move the bike into the garage and continue. I’m introduced to Cricket, a Shar-Pei / Pit bull cross (with some Bassett in there as well…)

Jorge has my dream job. He works for a well known sports clothing manufacturer. His current project is designing a sports bra. Part of the research for this involves studying videotapes of naked women running on a treadmill – Yes!

As has always been the case with ADVriders, the garage has some familiar residents…

Sheila’s soon home from work, and prepares dinner whilst her husband helps the weird guy from the other side of the pond :P – we manage to do most of the work before dinner, leaving the change of Poly V Belt and throttle body balance for later. A good day’s work
