Thumbs down

Becky's less than 9000 mile DRZ suffered a catastrophic top end failure today as we were climbing a mountain pass about 60 miles south of Eugene, OR on our way to crater lake. Removing the valve cover showed the exhaust cam and bearing busted out of its journal and intake looking pretty nasty too. We tried to coast back down in the direction of the last town but they shut the road down for major maintenance behind us and we're currently camping until morning when we can start calling some shops and see who wants to rebuild an engine really fast.
