A big day today and one I will aways remember fortunately and unfortunately!
Got up early. The first hour and a half were the best riding of the day. The light was behind us and low angle. A little track leading through the hills and eventually dropping down into the valley. Some images that I never quite found the spot to get (too many trees) but I have them in my mind.
Today was a long day. Over 400km of dirt. There were places with really bad bull dust!
So you are thinking, “you’ve got to camp without anything untoward happening, what was the bad part of today?”
I noticed my bike was idling a little low when we stopped to camp just on dusk. This was the first sign for me of an emerging iceberg! Raman then mentioned he had seen a little puff of smoke from the exhaust late in the avo when I took off. Oh!
I went to sleep with these little, and yet damning, bits of information running around in my head. Maybe it is running really rich from a clogged air filter…I’ll have a look in the morning.
