Some video:

We made our way into Escalante and found the Shop. The "Desert Doctor" runs this place out of his garage. He's probably the only shop within a couple hundred miles. This is a photo from the outside of his place:

This is the Desert Doctor.

He got Kevin's bike up on the lift and got to it. He immediately starts in with a few stories about himself and some of his customers (pretty entertaining). He started diagnosing the bike, all the while continuing his stories.

He keeps souvenirs from some of his customers such as these worn tires. He meets people from all over the world that roll through there and find themselves needing a little help.

He found that the temperature switch on the bike was bad and not turning on the fan. He wired a quick fix that would allow Kevin to turn the fan on and off manually, which worked just fine. He charged Kevin a whopping 75 bucks for his time.

After that we stopped off at a cabin that Kevin's buddy owns. We grabbed a quick shower and relaxed for a few with a frosty beverage.
