In the dead of winter, Jason and I headed out on our first
bike tour across the southern United States. Things were going
surprisingly well for such touring novices... until about day three
when we realized where our planning went terribly wrong.
did not have Brooks Saddles on our bikes! (gasp) Being in the middle of
nowhere, we had to keep riding and hope that in the next major city we
would find some B17's. After a few more bum-burning riding days, we got
to Phoenix made some calls and found a shop with TWO B17s and they just
happened to match our bikes, green and honey. PERFECT. The rest of our
journey across the states was great and challenging, but at least we
were riding in comfort and style!!!
