I made it back to Kibondo! Bus journeys were a bit rough but passed the time by listening to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance on audiobook to get in the mood. Good tips, such as knowing that all bike issues can be traced to rational, objective causes and not Voodoo magic, although electrical issues seem like that. And then it goes deep into philosophy, with a long treatise on 'quality.'
sanDRina was patiently waiting for me just like I left her, along with my other gear. I installed the new parts and she fires up and idles nicely. Test ride tomorrow to confirm that the issues's been resolved (fingers crossed).
