Since it was only 177 miles to Paonia CO, I decided to change the oil at Grand Junction BMW.
These guys are great as they let me do the whole thing myself. All I needed was an oilpan.
They couldn't give me tools, but I had enough to start a shop . I guess that the lawyers got to them too with their liability BS
Anyway, I bought fresh fluids from them for the engine, tranny and FD. The new fluids made me and the bike happy. The FD fluid was good as I had changed that on the road one extra time anyway to keep an eye on things....
After this interlude I rode to Paonia bought a bottle of rum!! ( I don't drink when riding) and pitched the tent for the next 4 days.
Seeing familiar faces all over, this is the rally I like a lot.
Didn't ride at all for the next 4 days, as at this time I had ridden 12K miles and I needed a mental and physical break.
This trip was becoming work
Tents popping up like mushrooms...
There were good bands playing this weekend and I have some pics of the best one...
Did I mention I like this rally????
