This is Johnathan. He is not very old, but I can tell you, the welding job he did on the aluminum bracket was expert level work!

Then it was time to make time! Other than taking this picture, we were running 75 to 85 on pot hole infested roads for several hours.

Then I had to stop and reattach the right saddlebag that was dangling by the rope I used to connect it. That was no surprise, but this was!



Look at that back trunk! I had lost this trunk in the Northwest Territories of Canada last year and my solution was to solid mount it to the rack with two bolts in the rear of the box. It would have been more difficult to install bolts in the front and since I didn't think it was really needed, I didn't. I will when I get home!

And then it was on to Vera Cruz.



We will be here three nights and will be doing day trips with MikeMike. I look forward to that, as he is an expert on local small road riding!

I am glad to hear no one was hurt, and that you were able to find some expert help for the bike! I would probably still be on the side of the road wondering what to do!
