No kidding eh? A fellow Canadian. I used to live in Kelowna, BC-- that's still home for me.

Thinking we'll be heading back from Tofino around the 3rd or 4th. When are you heading back?

LOL-- very funny. Yup was pulling the clutch-- looks like it maybe the clutch switch. I'm going to pop a new one in next week and see if that remedies the situation.
