Day 9 - Welcome to America!

Not much internet here, 2 bars of AT&T (not enough for photos) and can't get the WiFi to work. Full update when I get to Portland (hopefully).

Yesterday started out cold, low 30s, inside of visor kept freezing over. We road through alot of fog and construction on HWY 17 across Canada. It never really warmed up, at least while riding.

No issues crossing the border. A nice 100 mile ride into New York State.

Went to dinner with Marc, Bagel, Marc's parents (Clint + Julie) and Brian in downtown Lake Placid. OK town. Jim called during dinner, broke down with electrical problems. Dispatched the support truck. Had a nice steak dinner, finally!!!! Back to the hotel. Marc hooked his computer up to my scooter, determined the check engine light is the result of an intermitten signal from my lamda (spelling) probe. Which makes sense, I've only had the exhaust on/off a dozent times this week.

Had a night cap at bar next store, scotch, sambuca, with Alice and Karen. Nice folks. By that time Jim rolled in. He and Geoff started doing some surgery on his bike. Not sure what the outcome was, I passed out in their room watching. Eventually made it back to mine.

Frost on the bikes, 28 degrees out. Just want to get to Portland!

Maple Leaf Inn, owners were very nice - they gave us an awesome group rate. I saw lots of Ironman logos all over town and on signs! Made me think of you & PW!!
