Tuesday 3rd July 2001, Denver CO

First thing, we rang Erico Motorsports (www.ericomotorsports.com) to see whether they were still in existence. They had no service slots available until 13th July, but they told us where they were – north of 16th Street.

John suggested that we go up and have a look at their showroom. They might have a cancellation. It was worth a try. We had heard that dealers would generally try to accommodate touring motorcyclists, if they possibly could.

This turned out to be good advice. The Service Manager was very helpful and told John to bring his bike back at 9am on Thursday, and he would try and fit it in.
