Hey guys, just checking in , scurrying around trying to get ready for Sturgis trip. Just decided to haul the bike out behind my Cadillac SRX, have already borrowed a trailer, the car has a receiver hitch on it already. I bought the hitch arm and the ball this morning. The SRX was never wired for hauling a trailer so I got a wiring harness on order for that, should be here in a day or two. I talked to the woman that used to own the car and the only thing she used the hitch for was hauling a bike rack that slipped into the receiver hitch, so it didn`t need to be wired to pull a trailer. I also ordered new brake pads for the SRX will put them on tomorrow probably, they will be at autozone around 9 am. in the morning. I am going to pull my buddies trailer in his garage and repack the bearing in the wheels, and check everything out real good. I got a plan for the trip and it is all coming together, so I don`t have to rush around and get everything done the last minute.
I already have a nice place to stay at my friends house between Sturgis and Rapic City and they are looking forward to me coming. I went to local dealership today and bought them both a new Harley tshirt, and I am planning on taking them some canned deer meat out with me and some of my world famous Applepie. So I am beginning to look forward to the trip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Freedom is not just another word, it is riding my harley down the road with the wind in my face.
