Beautiful day for a ride. Went with a couple of friends from Bullhead City, AZ to Williams, AZ.  I put 319 miles on the Silver Wing today! First tank got me 55 MPG and the second tank (mostly downhill) got 68 MPG...this is the highest figure this scoot has ever seen. Most of the ride was on the old Route 66 in Northern Arizona.

Lucky you, I’m was in Williams AZ back in 2013 with Mrs Mrs M, when we drove some of the old Route 66. All I can remember about Williams now is a railway line with old style locomotives, eating in a retro diner, and Mrs M buying a couple of old metal advertising signs with old time baseball players advertising cola drinks.

Mrs M put them up on the wall of our utility room. Many's the time I've gone in there and looked at them thinking I've heard of Babe Ruth, but who's this Ted Williams bloke.

That sounds like a nice ride, I really liked the desert climate of Arizona and pretty much everything else, and I've got the bragging rights for Standin' on a Corner in Winslow, Arizona.

In fact I've just asked Alexa to play 'Take It Easy, and it's rainy here.

My trip to Williams, AZ was not all fun and games. At the time I had a Silver Wing with wheel kit added. I had added a real cruise control and removed the wheel kit for the trip. Everyone was working back then so I decided to go solo. Things went well in the beginning until I walked from motel to train station for tickets to the Grand Canyon. I came out of the station and something interesting caught my attention and I made a right turn too soon and tripped over a small wall that was about two feet high. Never should have been constructed. The fall on the concrete broke my left wrist.

I went to urgent care for x-ray and wrist brace. I went on to the canyon, hung around the motel for 3 days, and hit the road for home. I couldn't squeeze the left brake but I could hook my fingers over the brake handle and pull a little. Fortunately I did not have any panic stops on the 4 day trip home. A friend had offered to hook his trailer to his truck and come and get me and scooter. Many times on the return trip I sort of wished that I had agreed. Had metal plate installed in wrist in Jacksonville. I really loved the cruise control on that trip. The train ride and Grand Canyon were great.
