The next morning we took our time getting ready. Bikes were loaded and ready to go by 11am. But Professors LC4 wouldn't start no matter how many times he kicked it over.
Time to trouble shoot. It's determined it's getting fuel.
So off comes the tank.
And out comes the spark plug.
No spark. Check the wiring, looks good. Check the switch, looks good.
Try to tow start it, it starts! Professor yells "YES"! only to have it die 15 seconds later. More attempts, it won't fire at all now.
So Professor calls it and we ride out of the hole to get cell service and set up a recovery.
There's a good sized group headed to the Alvord from Bend but no one is able to make it to Hart. Killurtv's truck is being driven to the Playa by some friends so it's decided he'll come do a rescue the next morning.
Professor couldn't have broken down in a better spot. He has water, shade, whiskey, food, hot springs, and a book.
