Still not complete adapted to the US time zone I write my blog early in the morning instead of in the evening. Fall asleep at 22.00 to wake up at 5.
Well how did 66 go today? I saw Becky’s Barn. The owner I say to just leaving for a trip.
First what did I do and see more. Well drove the brick section of 66 after Becky.
Made a visit to Country Classic Cars were they had over 500 classic in big barns ready to drive.
After that I saw the semi big rocker shortly before Henry’s Rabbit Rach. Yes he had rabbits to. But his fame come from the VW Rabbits who are planted in the ground like the Cadillac Ranch in Texas ( EU people the VW Golf is called here Rabbit) Henry was just planning to leave be he toke same time for me.
And then I drove to the Antique Moll were the Muffler Man, Pink Elephant and a classis Ice saloon is. The hall was filled with stuff I remember that my brothers and sisters and I trow away when cleaning the house of our past away parents. But the ice was great. The lady rembered Cees Vendel, who bought the present for his wife from Betty Boop here.
And then to the Chain of the Rock bridge were in 2013 it took me 3 hours to see both sides because the entrance to the interstate was close. Now I saw no bikers or other people. The a men on a bicycle came from the other side.
Then I visited World's Largest Catsup Bottle a site tour for me that I did not do in 2013 but it’s a must see to. And it is for sale now according the sign. I hope the new owner to be will let the bottle stay.
Then I called it a day and look for a place to stay. No wifi needed because I bought a pre-paid card from T-mobile that allows me to share the data with my other iPhone so booking.com works even on the street side. I am now for the second time in a Americans Best Values Inn next to Denny where I had my first real American T-bone steak with a real American salad with ranch dressing. So a good meal for less.
Next place to visit is the Gateway Arch were I want to go up to see St. Louis from above.
Now how did I solve the boot problem I had. Well I was lucky when driving true Litchfield. The on 66 I saw a Honda and Yamaha dealer with a big shop. I bought there a new pair. But I was very glad I stopped there.
Saw the Honda CTX 1300 with the same engine as the Honda ST1300 for the first time live. I did not see this bike in the EU. And yes they had classic bikes place high above. And there it was standing another dream bike a Honda CX650 turbo
I had a Honda CX500turbo for 6 years. Just for having fun and having it. Technically it is a dream bike introduced in the year the a did my internship at Honda Netherlands. And that was the only bike I was not allowed to drive from the boss that time. And that makes it special for me to have and see this bike.
