Unfortunately, our buddy Adam had to work most of the day, but he was still kind enough to wake up extra early to take us for a motorcycle ride to the lookout point in Lakewood.  Jerry was unable to go because in the morning we found an oil leak and he headed straight to the shop.

Adam and Greg road for about 45 minutes and enjoyed a great view of Lakewood!

Next, Greg took his bike into the shop for an oil change.  While waiting, he received a phone call… “Hi Greg, uh, have you had any problems with the ignition lately?”  What was supposed to be 30 minutes oil change turned into 2 hours of diagnostics.  He diagnosed every electrical problem he could think of but couldn’t fix anything without the right parts.  They could expedite the shipping and get them in by Thursday (two days away).  This wasn’t going to work, so the mechanic taught Greg how to hot wire his bike then wrote up the bill.  Then randomly, upon departure, the bike started up perfectly after all the headaches… electrical problems can be screwy.  (Yes, there is still a problem, but we aren’t going to deal with it until we get back home!)

Later, Jerry went off to a Rockies game with his friend Larry while Greg and Adam chilled out and caught up on their lives.  After a nice day off from riding, we have an early night to prepare for tomorrow’s day over the Rockies!
