We have gone out riding a few times to refresh our skills and check out the bikes. On one of our rides we went to dinner to celebrate out 31st wedding anniversary.
We are using our Chatterbox radios for bike-to-bike communication. Beth’s was working fine, but my transmissions were garbled. I adjusted the mounting of the microphone when I got home and it’s working fine now.
On our next ride we saw a friend out walking, so we pulled up to say, “Hi!” We each attempted to use our horns, but all we got were squeaks. The heavy rain we rode through a couple of weeks ago got into the horns. (Yes, we skipped doing a pre-ride test.) I was able to drain the water out of Beth’s horn and get it working, but mine would not cooperate. I pried it open and found more water and a bug. It smelled terrible. This is what the inside of a Harley horn looks like.
I couldn’t get it working even after blowing it out, so I went to the dealer and bought a replacement. They are way over-priced.
Our house-sitter came and picked up the key and the friend who is going to take my dad shopping and to church is set with a pass to his condo gate. Now we just need to pack everything on the bikes and depart Saturday morning.
