Getting into my spot was a bit interesting. There are a few things that scare me on the motorcycle... gravel roads and gravel roads that go down hill. Not sure why I have such a mental block some days when it come to gravel roads but this was one of them. I totally freaked myself out... quite funny after the fact but frustrating at the time.
I knew from past experience using the brake going downhill on gravel doesn't work. This is the only time I wish TicTac had brakes. Braking on a motorcycle with a trailer on downhill gravel just makes it slide... and of course the fear of dropping the bike... with no one around to help you get it back up. (No, I can't lift my own bike... even with the special way... especially connected to TicTac. The hitch makes it funky and harder to lift) I know logically if I just drove down the road all would be fine... I am more likely to drop the bike by walking it down the gravel but for whatever reason my brain just stops. Kind of like when I hike my mind stops on occasion and I can't figure out where to take my next step. I just stand there and laugh trying to make my foot move forward. That was how it was going down this slight... I mean really slight, small, down hill gravel road.
|That's it... just a slight downhill slope.|
|That's Blue and TicTac way over there.|
|No long walks on the beach here.|
