Rob and Chris:
So today Rob kindly drove us to Flagstaff and then back to Keans Canyon, a 260 mile round trip, so that I could purchase a new front tyre. Thanks Rob for being a great host, your kindness and giving up your time to help me. Hope to see you in Scotland sometime in the not too distant future.
So bike is now roadworthy, and it has also been cleaned, and the chain cleaned and lubricated with dry lube, as the wet stuff was attracting the Arizona dust. So I'm good to go tomorrow morning; destination Tuba City.
