Quest - Stopped by the Sheriff


Less than a week and already pulled over by the motorcycle sheriffs department - after I had to pull out into the traffic lanes to avoid hitting them and all the cars they had pulled over for speeding.

Officer: You do not need to get your license out. Do you know why we pulled you over? Me: No

Officer: The law in Texas requires bicyclists to ride on the shoulder of the road. Me: You were in the way and I did not want to hit you.

Officer: Stay in the shoulder when possible. Have a nice day.

Then we chatted a bunch about the Quest.

Ask him if I could take his picture with his motorcycle - no problem.


Beautiful day for a ride! Although, it is starting to get a little hot with temps in the mid-to-high nineties. The quest has a headlight, I’m going to have to try riding early in the morning before the sun comes up.

Here is a picture of the half way point just as I turned around to head back down the hill.


Bike Changes

Finally the chain is adjusted correctly. Good shifting all gears.

Hung the camelbak over the rear seat hanger. Works great.
