I want to visit my ole buddy Al on the way home, but he is 500 miles down the road, so I need to burn some miles today. I jump on I-40 which goes past Winslow Az. Winslow has been on my bucket list for years because of the Eagles song. Route 66 Thru Winslow is awesome! They have done a super job of making it fun, and interesting.
The flatbed ford, and Gen.
Across the street.
And back on the super slab for a spirited mile burning ride. I stop in Flagstaff for gas and happened to spin the rear tire while it was up on the center stand. About 90% of the tire looked acceptable, but on one spot the tire was very nearly bald. Not only that, but little chunks were coming out of the tire....like someone had picked at it with a knife or cheese grater! Thinking about the speeds I had just done made me a little queezy. I decide I need a new tire, and after a couple of hours on the phone find an Anakee in Flagstaff. I would rather have a matching tire, but my options are limited to say the least. So off I go to Northland Motorsports in Flagstaff for my new Anakee. It wasn't cheap, but they did give me a rush job and I was soon back on the road. Thanks Northland for installing my tire so quickly.
