Feeling lucky

I must have done something right for me to find a rear tire in Muscat since they don't sell Goldwings here. In fact this tire was ordered by some one who didn't want it any more, I am sure that the dealer who sold it to me was happy to find a buyer.

I am also lucky to have great friends that make these things easier, like Hameed who stuck with us and found the tire, Mr. and Mrs. Aziz who without there support all of this would be harder, and for Mohammed who sent me all the contacts I needed as a backup plan to fixing the tire.

Yes the bike is fixed and I also managed to get the burned light bulb replaced although Honda didn't have one I remembered that the BMW bikes use the same H7 bulb that the Honda does and went to the BMW dealer to get one.

The only issue I have now is that the Honda dealer here didn't have the adapter for the balancing machine to balance the tire after installing it on the rim, which means that I will need to get it balanced in Dubai.

We managed to slip away to Muttrah Market, between running errands for fixing the bike, which is an old style market full of antiques and tourists. We also managed to visit the area where the Sultan used to live and take pictures of old forts.

Welcome to my Journals......

Ever since I have been traveling on two wheels I haven't written any thing down regarding where I went, who I saw, or how I did it.

Most of my travels are with friend who I thank for letting me tag along, learn, and grow.

This journal will have two aspects the first a record of my future travels, and maybe some back dated ones. And the other will be my thoughts about traveling on a motorcycle, what gear I have tried, and what methods I feel are the best for traveling.

Please feel free to drop me a note regarding motorcycle travel, I will be happy to reply.
