Ghost Rider 2

Well it is day 3 of our vacation. To start met with group for breakfast, my eggs came RAW not the yellow, the whites. 100 miles down the road lead bike Harley throwing oil. All over the front of my bike. 3 hours at a Harley dealer we are running. Stop for lunch order messed up, my hot apple pie came direct from cooler. Got to motel they lost reservations. Sunday breakfast was better, lunch no better, dinner was in a little basket that would not feed a bird. Today started good. Then something happened. Lost vission in right eye. Hit a curb bent up lower front exhaust cover, and yes dropped bike. No other damage. Not exactly a perfect week. Cheryl ready to head home. See what tomorrow brings. Vission still not back in right eye. Headed to eye doctor as soon as we get home.

 

And the heat is far worst than at Mark Twain. A bank clock today showed 107.

 

Wish us luck and send prayers for us tomorrow.

Gave me some drops said it would get better. NO it got worst. New eye doctor that is for sure. Right eye is just very blury right now. Leaving to get on road early check back tonight. Everyone thanks for well wishes.

Just googling around, vision loss in one eye is nothing to mess with. It can as major as a stroke on the left brain, sudden loss of blood pressure or a tumor on the optic nerve. There are also several "smaller" things it could be also.

 

Not trying to worry ya, just sayin you should really get that checked right away Jerry.

 

Be safe coming home. :worthy:

Well I am glad to report today was a much better day. Not as hot great riding. Not a problem came up. I let the others lead and I rode 2nd or last. Eye still an issue. I can see something if it is right up close anything over a few feet is a blur at best. No pain or anything just blurry. We are in Boone, NC. Beautiful roads here. Would make a great place for a future meet & greet. Going out for dinner, check back in later.

Jerry, call your doctor maybe he can prescribe somthing you can get at a drug store close to you. That is nothing to mess with.

Back seat drivers are always the worst. Ha Ha

Cheryl and I broke away from group today. We headed west. Cheryl is heat exhausted. 2 days ago it was 107. 100 yesterday. And spending 10 hours a day on the road is to much. I am feeling good. Eye fuzzy but I am headed towards home. Will call our local eye doctor as soon as we are there. We are at a motel in Tennesse Cheryl and I hit the pool for a while. I came back to room she is still there. We only rode this morning. Checked in motel just after lunch. Taking a break.

Where abouts did you two stay? If it was somewhere in middle TN, I'm going to be disappointed.:tap::tap:
