Good for you.

I wasn't so lucky.

I felt the dreaded tap in the foot pegs and knew. This pic was taken about 470 miles from home just outside of Alpine Texas. I made it to Marathon and KNEW I couldn't go any further.

But $280 buck later in parts and labor from a well respected mech, and I was on the road again.

PS. "well respected mech" said he had done hundreds of oil head and air head FD bearings. Some of them were preventative, but most were failures.

I still love it.

My gears grind more and more each day.
