Stuck in Colorado Springs for repairs.
My Wee quit charging. And I ran the battery out of power. It got down to 8.6 volts before it totally died.
I left Fort Collins yesterday afternoon for my home in Freeman MO (south of Kansas City). I took a ride of to Alaska and have been on the rode since June 15.
I am certainly glad I didn't go with my original plan of taking Hwy 34 east and some other highway down to the south near my home. I decided to take Hwy 50. Because of this I broke down in Colorado Springs rather than Yuma CO. I figure I am pretty lucky. I don't know if Yuma has a shop to work on it.
I have it at Rocky Mountain Cycle. They are suppose to look at it this morning. I kinda figure it is the stator. I don't know if they are any good, but it was the first one I could find that did Suzuki and I was trying to reach them before the bike quit. I didn't make it and they had to come and pick up the bike. It was only 1 hour before they closed.
I am going crazy sitting in the motel room. There wasn't a campground close that would let me set up my tent. I could rent an RV space, but the motel was only $5 more per night.
Is there anyone with some free time that want to show me around the Colorado Springs area? About all I can offer in return is to buy you a meal and talk about riding. This motel is hard on my budget of $60 a day. My number is (nine one 3) -208 - one 329. I know it is the middle of the week, so not the best timing
