So, I left ABT. I had worked there in one way or another for close to 10 years. But all things come to an end. Before I start with 4XT (thanks Mentzer), I decided to take a pretty useless trip. JP was headed to LA (yes, California) to get a seat installed into his new Sprinter van. I thought, what the hell, why not drive out and join him. Of course I’d bring my bikes and get in some riding.
Well, the Texas Panhandle weather wasn’t the most cooperative, but I managed.
It started to snow west of OKC and eventually it got bad enough that visibility is pretty low and the drifting snow was sticking to the road bad in spots. I fish tailed the trailer and spoiled myself pretty good. I got of the Hwy and rode out the worst of it at a truck stop. It seemed fine until it got dark and closer to Amarillo and I started crossing huge sheets of ice. Again the truck and trailer fish tailed pretty bad. I decided to call it a night and hunker down in Groom, TX. It ended up being really cold, but I was well prepared and slept out the night.
