Total Trip Mileage so far: 3392 miles
I got to Olathe KS and stopped into Letko Cycles, a real enthusiast shop! After discussing my crash and they offered to put my bike up on the lift and just give it a good check over. They did not have the mounts I needed or a bike to cannibalize – however, when they looked at my “fix”, they said I should just leave it that way as it was holding up fine and should not cause any problems for me. They tweaked my brake pedal a bit more and pronounced my bike fully rideable. No charge! You can’t beat that kind of help. They also recommended a painter that specialized in Ducati repairs and painting promising me that they were sure he could fix all the scraped up parts to as good as new (Postscript – I did send the parts to him and he did an excellent job at a reasonable price). Out the door and back heading east.
