The BMW is finally fixed!
l catch a cheap Westjet flight to
Edmonton on Friday, 21 Aug and pick the long-suffering bike up at Argyll
Motor Sports. BMW has been extremely sympathetic to my rideless summer
and pick up the cost of the bike cpu ($2500), shop and labour costs,
airfare to Kelowna return AND rentaracer for week. Think l will continue
buying their products:)
Jim and l clear Edmo by lunch on Sat
and spend a great afternoon prowling HW 39 and 22 west of HW 22. We even
get onto CFB Penhold, a decommissioned air force base l worked at in
We part ways in Red Deer and l take HW
11, the David Thompson, west to Saskatchewan Crossing and spend the
evening at the Ramparts campground.
Cold and drizzly the nest morning, l
head south to Banff on the Icefields Parkway, then HW 22/2 back to
Edmonton. 1200 km in all, a far too-short ride in a far too-short
of a riding summer.
