Yesterday I put the flag holder on my bike in participation of the July 4th bike ride and noticed an empty tank when I pulled the right side cover. I immediately panicked, thinking I was out of coolant. Texted Tim and he said calm down and last night after work he and Christopher said the tank was just an overflow and that I had plenty of coolant and it looked good. Could have ended there, but Christopher insisted on draining and putting new in just so I don't have to worry about it in Florida. It was a fairly long procedure and not without some pain, so thanks guys very very much. Sure appreciate your kindness. No way I'll find friends like Tim, Chris and Dave down South.

The cloud formations confirmed the cockpit announcement that there was some foul weather ahead.  I tried to get some lightening in the clouds but never saw any.  The ride was probably as bumpy as I've ex…
