Thanks! Just overhauled the whole bike last weekend, and got a mechanic to adjust the valves and install a new cam chain the week before! She just purrs now! I also got them to swap my clutch back to the stock one, from the Rev-loc semi-auto....That will be a bit of a learning curve again on the trail!
And like you say, it's Lush here... When I was going over everything, I found water in most of my bearings, water in the fork oil, water in the linkage bearings, and will have to replace them again, along with rear wheel bearings..... I replaced my steering bearings when I did my fork oil, and now the steering feels loose to me! I guess the rusty old ones were a bit of a steering damper!

Sometimes I crave a drier climate! Been to the Okanagan, but I need to see some real desert one day! I can't wait to do a longer adventure somewhere completely different from what I'm used to!
