Actually got rained on the Grapevine. Saw some spectacular lightning - happy it was from afar.
It wasn't a bad ride down here - we arrived at Escondido Cycle at 10 a.m. As agreed they took Larry's bike in right away.
We left the cycle shop after 1 p.m. to return tomorrow for the installation of the parts they had to order today.
Not only are they fixing Larry's O2 sensor, they are replacing the defective trunk lock assembly on my trike. They also discovered a recall on my trike that had not been done and took care of that.
We are at the Ramada Limited in San Marcos - not too shabby for $52 a night.

We road as far as Lost Hills at 8 p.m.
Larry's bike threw a code - right O2 sensor needs to be looked at. Going to Escondido Honda when we get there tomorrow.
My trike had a burned out headlight first thing today. Larry replaced it - much easier than when he replaced his in Billings! Later in the day the trunk open message kept popping up after going over bumps. ARGH!
Saw Don Whittier in Clearlake - he took our photo, but too tired to up load it.
On the San Marcos tomorrow EARLY!
Bags are packed and loaded. Motorcycles serviced and aimed for the road.
We will be riding as far south today as is practical. Stopping in Sacramento for haircuts and a visit with Loren (who, by the way, is now the proud owner of a California Class A license!).
Think kind thoughts, good roads and sane drivers!

The red trailer is at C.A.R.S. in Lakeport to be painted yellow to match my trike. It looks very nice - just waiting for one last reflector to be glued on. Slight problem now is that the lid closed and locked and they can't get it to open with the key they had. Now awaiting the locksmith to make another key and get the darn lid open so I can have the trailer back!!
Ordered new helmets - this time matching the motorcycles.
This weekend we will ride to the Marin French Cheese Factory in Novato, CA - yummy!
Our next long distance ride will be Torches Across America - we leave August 29th.
