And now that BMW is parked outside the China Lake BOQ. No hot spring for me this morning, but at least it's warm in the hotel room. I talked to the previous owner last night, looks like the same thing happened to him, and believe it or not, it was in Death Valley. He rode the thing all the way back to the Reno area. He said it's an easy fix, just have to pull the final drive and replace the roller bearings. He used blue locktite last time, Im putting red on.

If you're coming to Death Valley the washboard is pretty bad right now.

LOCKTITE EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU COME!

Other than that, it was a great 2 days of riding.
