 Very scenic route

...and noticed now, that one pair didn't fire up. Did the connection get wet? I unwrapped the insulation I had put around the wiring to prevent moisture from getting to the blank wires. Checked all connections, lights still did not work. Ok, next, fuses. Turns out, the corresponding fuse was blown. I blew back and put a new one in. Lights now working again! Should've known better, "Cff = Check fuses first!"

 Somewhere along the road with a blown fuse...

The right of two cigarette lighter adapters stopped supplying current. Not sure yet, what the issue is. Luckily, the bike has an USB outlet installed. I can use that to charge my phone in the meantime while the bike is in motion. I bet, it's the fuse ;-)

My ride today took me along scenic Lago de Chapala. It's a huge lake. Stopped at a small fishing town called, Petatan, and took some pics. The town had a church on a hill. Reminded me of the town in Germany where I grew up.

The scenery was pretty much made up of farm land, hills, valleys, lakes and peaks. When the time came to look for a night spot, I considered camping by a small mountain lake. But, dark clouds, and soon to follow heavy rain, made me search for four walls with a roof over my head. I found a cozy place with cabins near a town, El Gallito, on the edge of a lake that wasn't even on my map.

 Thanks for having me, senora...

The landlady was friendly, and showed me one of her cabins, much too large for me. But hey, I was tired from riding and needed a hot shower and a good meal. And I'd never turn away a king size bed. My bike sat safe and dry under a covered shed in front of my cabin. Life is good...somewhat.

Weather : much colder. Rain in the pm.

Mood: strange, not sure why.
