CHAPTER 24


DAY 56. BACK IN LOS ANGELES

We are back! It is a funny feeling with a bit of trepidation as we get ready to head south .

Then a problem. The bikes that were supposed to be ready after two weeks were not! Oh Dear, much gnashing of teeth. My bike had not even been started ! After an interesting discussion they indicated they would work " all through the night" to service my bike. Oh Yeah ! So it is " come back tomorrow "

Since we were in Hollywood one has to go to Sunset Strip so off we went to Tinsel Town or at least Neon town. Are we star struck ? - No!

Well stone the Crowes!











DAY 57. LOS ANGELES TO LAGUNA BEACH. 140 km


It was a frustrating day as the bikes were still not ready and certainly had not been worked on all night Fernando the workshop manager had assured us 2 weeks ago that the bikes would be ready for us as soon as we stepped off the plane. The words of the immortal song ran through my head -

"Oh Fernando
The drums are beating Fernando......"

Finally at 2.00 pm my bike was finished , we paid Fernnando and we were away at last.

And the big clean!




So I decided to do some dental work on myself whilst waiting !




Then it was down the Santa Monica Boulevard ( aka Route 66) as on to the freeway heading south. Sure enough soon the sea appeared on the right hand side which was kind of reassuring as I figured that meant we had to be heading to South America!




South America here we come!
