Lingering in LA

I had ridden two thirds of the way across North America and finally reached Los Angeles, the sun was shining and friends were there to greet me. No time for the tourit traps of the bus tours past celebrity houses.

My friends gave me a cold beer and dressed me up like Austin Vince and if you don't know who Austin is, just google images of him to see what I mean.
Thelma needed some serious TLC and I needed the right outfit for the job.

The work was being led by Joe (who is in Moto Enduro/Terra Circa)
He started by taking a long look at Thelma from various angles, whilst I warned him about the "Pandora's Box" effect that always seems to happen when people do any work on her
