James and I both are hearing noises and seeing dead parts on our big bikes. Just pre-trip paranoia, I hope.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

Crap, that 10,000 mile service is a bitch.

Replacing the clutch and flywheel?

The truth?

Truth is there's a new factory performance mod I'm getting so I can spank all y'all in the turns and on the straights. Forevermore.

OK, OK, I simply burped a bit of oil on the return from Guate and Lone Star is going all out to make sure everything is copacetic. The RMB seal had reseated itself and looks fine but they're replacing it anyway just to be sure. Mike did all the wrenching on my Moto Guzzi and BMW back in the '80s and now he's taking care if my new bike. I'm feeling pretty good about that.

Looking forward to taking the big bike to Big Bend next week for a little fun in the dirt.

For those keeping score , I had another metal object find it's way to my tire. Other than payback from the fates, I have no explanation.

Also do final drives usually use water as a lubricant? Aaah. Probably just on the 07's.

Getting excited. Looks like we are gonna be able to get away for a few days of bad craziness out west for our "rugged individualist" libertarian BB run. (All sun, highs in the low 80's, lows in the 40's)

I will start my 72 hour fitness regimen as soon as I get off this couch. Best to be prepared.
