Sorry for the radio silence, I spent two nights with a uncle outside of Tucson with almost no internet access.

Last night I started east again and found myself near Chiricahua National Monument, in the very southeast of Arizona. I wisely decided to camp inside the park and this morning I fond some really spectacular dirt roads heading east to New Mexico. I stopped for a little breakfast and smelled oil. Not good.

I looked under the bike to see a the rear shock leaking. Ruh roh. I'm a long way from nowhere.

So, I'm in a bit of a bind. I'd rather not buy a new BMW shock, if I'm going to spend the money, then I'd rather buy aftermarket, but finding one of those in the middle of nowhere will be tough. I'm not sure how far I can go on this one before it becomes a pogo stick.

So anyone know where I can find a used rear shock for short money?

Currently in Lordsburg, NM
