I had the Atom serviced today at Scottsdale Lotus. They’re fine folks and have experience working on Atoms (though with my service today, their experience has doubled). They’re into cars – all kinds of cars (don’t let the “Lotus” in the name fool you).

I had the clutch bled (hopefully this time it stays bled – sometimes I feel I’m just herding bubbles into the clutch slave cylinder so they can be rounded up and extracted), the oil and filter changed, all the assorted nuts and bolts checked for proper torque, and the brakes and tires inspected.

I should be moving on to Springerville, AZ on my way to Albuquerque, NM tonight, unless I get a report of unfavorable weather.
