Ride West: Day 25 in Wichita

I had planned to write a trip summary today, but ended up spending two hours at the Harley-Davidson dealer getting a new tire and new rear brakes.  The tire had no tread in the middle but enough rubber to get me home.  But since I’m heading into Hurricane Issac, I thought it might be a good idea to replace the tire before riding through heavy rain.  For some reason, I wore my brakes out riding in the mountains.  Must have been all the “Holy Crap!” hairpin turns I tried to take with the BMWs, Yamaha, and Gold Wings.

Looks like Brian made his Iron Butt 1500 miles in 36 hours on his way home to Florida today.  Congrats.

Will try again for trip summary tomorrow before setting out on my final two days back to Florida.

    Dennis, I arrived home in Bloomington, IN at 4 pm edt today, an uneventful ride from Independence, MO this morning. Hope you had a good visit with your mother. Looks like the hurricane is right in your trip path. Enjoy your ride home as best you can. Great having you with us on the Twisted Riders 2012 tour to Colorado.
    Brad
