Bike Damage

Well traveling that day in the sand storm has done a number on the bike, it looks as if some one took a sand blaster to the front end , there is no luster in the paint upfront where the wind hit it, and I didn't realize how bad it was until afterwards when I was cleaning it and cut my finger on some peeled chrome on the front fork brace.

I also noticed that the fog lights has a different color until a closer inspection revealed that the class was totally sand blasted.

Even the chrome on the highway pegs although not peeled were pitted and the luster of the shine of the chrome has gone.

Next time I think I will wait the sand storm out , it is easier on the bike.

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.
