Thanks everyone.

I'm off now to the BMW dealer here in Panama. I thought they opened at 9 but instead it's 7 so if I really hustle I could be home again tonight.

Where the bike is now, I really don't want to have to change the tranny and final drive fluid.

The starter made a strange noise. I'll do what I can for it.

The clutch... holy shit the clutch got abused in the mud. I buried the rear wheel right up to the axle. A lot. To try (in vain) to keep from spinnin, I's start out in 2nd. Or at least try to start out in 2nd.

Did I mention that my dad did this road a few days ago (in a Landrover Defender) and reported it dry and in good condition, with rivers only ankle deep.

I don't know if any of you pray or anytin, but if you do, please hope that my bike is where I left it? I'm sure I can fix it... if I can find it again.

Here are the coordinates (aprox). Check it out on google earth. n 9, 30.945, w79,14.888
