Default trip to L.A on the wing last week

this is how the trip went.
Mason Tractor wanted to buy this f 700 dump truck that was for sale on Craig's list down in los angles and called me for the trip.The plan was for me to ride to Santa Fe LA on the goldwing. a 7 hr drive.
Purchase the truck than load the bike in the back of the truck and head for home.
I figured I will leave at 12 midnight wensday arrive at the guy`s shop at 7AM when they open .
A couple weeks before this while returning home from my doughter`s place about 3 hours north of my place I desided to ride along the levie`s that folows the sacremento river.it is a good ride if you are looking to ride at a fast pace for a long way`s becouse the road is raised 20 ft and visability is good for miles.
I was crusing at 90 for a while and burned up the main shaft brg in the transmission .took the engine out the next day. While I hade the engine out I went through the motor and the rear dif.I just needed diff brg to show up then I could finish it and get going.
I get the bike done and go for a test ride. all is good .
by this time a storm moved in and had started to rain Putin the trip off a couple day`s. i talked the guy in LA into holding it untill wensday .I Finley leave tuesday nite about 11:30. Before I left I try-ed to sleep a couple hours but couldn't.the bike is running great and it is about 3 am now and i am on interstate 5 with nothing but me and miles of truckers behind and in front as far as you could see.
out of the blue with no warning i fall asleep drifting off to the right of the slow lane and woke when i ran over a marker.wow that was close i think to my self.It seamed like less than a mile later i fall asleep again drifting from the slow lane across the fast lane and came to when i ran over the caution bumps next to the center divide wall and this trucker is laying on his horn.
I gather it up put it back on the road and the trucker is telling me on his PA well that's twice Budd i will pull into the next rest area and you are welcome to crash in my rig while i do a couple hours of paper work .
that was cool of the guy but I didnt think that I could make it to the next rest area .
the next exit was to the town of San walkeen .this place is a valley about 40 miles long north to south and about 25 miles wide east to west. all aggriculture . figured I would find a Denny`s and get something to eat and sleep a fue minutes . 20 minutes into the soy been Fields and i get to a deserted farming town. the only other living thing I saw was this scraggly little dog in the middle of the street barking at me and a cop board out of his mind.
The cop tells me that the only place to eat is 25 miles away and gives me directions .off I go back to I- 5 .it is dark as a cave and I am travailing on this irrigation road about 30MPH and suddenly I feel like iI am air borne than I am almost throne over the bars .the bike is shut down i am not moving and my feet are on the pegs. WTF i go to get off the bike and the ground is up to my highway peg gs .
i step off and sink in this clay up to my knee WTF.i guess a water main broke and just simply washed away about 100 ft of the road. the angle on my shoulder just wasn't going to let me back on the road no mater what it took.The bike and i weren't going any further till i get wenched from the volcano i drove into so i went to sleep till day lite.
at about 6 am wensday i open my eyes to a beautiful sunrize and all be dam but that little dog found me some time during the night and was asleep at my feet. the second I move the dog snaps to his feet and is at a safe distance as if he never met someone that didnt kick him.I will say this as clear as i can .their is no good in a person that can misstreat an animal and should be removed from life as soon as posible .now i get a good look at the situation.for fuck sakes .my bike was in this gray clay up to the axel`s never seen mud like this in my time walking the earth .so thick the bike wouldnt fall over shit i couldnt evan pull it over.way off in the distance i can see a farmer opening watter valves mile by mile. finaly he see`s me waving my arms and comes to see what is up.he is acrost the swamp with a look on his face like what is this gringo doin out hear in the first plase and how did he wind up in that ........ah fuckin gringo`s...
so what do es the spanican do he try`s to drive through the swamp doesn't get twenty feet and he is stuck .the dog and i look at each other and i swear the dog was as stunned as i was.i shake my head and ask the dog did he just do that ?
the little guy cocks his head at my words looks back at the truck and just drops his but to sit.funniest thing i have seen a dog do in a long time.the farmer calls his nephew to come help .me and the dog made a couple PBJ`S for breakfast while we waited .the kid shows up with a jeep and shure as shit gets it stuck.the poor farmers had no idea that thay had stepped into jay`s world and they were not prepared .shit i am un prepared most the time and I live with me !!! The next guy comes out with this huge tractor combine like thing and yanked us all out. part 2 tomorrow
thanks for your time
