Way too clean

Getting out of the Rally Van with lunches for staff members cranking away in the work room, we noticed a motorcyclist just getting off his R1200GSA. It was set up for long-distance riding but awfully clean, so we assumed it was one of our volunteers. Nope, it was George Levar, rider 58, with a freshly washed windscreen, maybe hoping to slip in unnoticed. Since we can, we checked his SPOT track, which shows why he looks so fresh: his GPS unit spent a restful night in a residential neighborhood, which, strangely, is on the same street as his official residence.
