I decided tobuy a new one. I likedthat "KellySpringfield" tire and I knew they had a branch place here so I tried to find it. Atlanta Ga. is the hardest place to find your way aroundthan any otherplace of it's size I have ever seen. After looking for the "Kelly Springfield"tire co. for ONE whole hour at last I found it.and then after a long continueation of delays I at last got the new back tire on the wheel. It was untill 6:00pm that I was leaving Altanta. I stoped on way out for gal.of gas.and gal. of oil...........

I wonder why he just didn't go to Starbucks, or find some place with WiFi, and google the nearest dealership from his laptop.

Incrdible find, reminds me about a trip that my Grandpa used to tell friends and family, when he rode a 4 cylinder Indian from Marshall, NC, all the way down to Floridy. it was in the 1920s.

Sounds familiar, that Indian uses about the same amount of oil as my Vulcan and alot less gas!

I made a big sprint for "winder Ga. Which is about 55.8 miles from atlanta . (this was my second stopwhen I was on my way to New York with my father,It happens to be my first this time)There were paved roads10 miles out of Atlanta and after thatwas in fair shape. It got dark and I had to use my light. I cameflying arounda corner and came to the cross roads, It happen right where the roads cross there was a big and very bad sand bed,my lightwasn't burning very extra...........page 13...........bright just then so I didn't see it right away and went flying into itand down wentme and the motor before I knew what happen! I got up,picked up my motor,nothing was hurt. Now it happened that i was right inthe middle of the crossroads so I saw four roads leading four diffrent way,they all were the same build and lookedd alike,nowI didn't know whichone to take.I was glad the moon was shining good and bright. I set my motor on the stand............
