Talking Both bikes finish to La Paz

Great news! Both bikes finish to La Paz today
Johnny, Chirs, Patrick and Allan had great rides today. Still plenty of attrition out there. We see bikes trailered often. Looks like the bikes will be in good enough shape to finish tomorrow. Patrick had a classic Pelican landing after his last stage. He had a flat on the front tire with about 20 miles to go .... spokes were flapping, lost the front break and really no words can explain how it looked when he came in!!
We are so proud of the crew, riders and bikes are hanging in there too.

Allan had a great day, he had the same section that he had at Baja. Some of you know he didn't have a great day at Baja, but he smoked it in the Mexican. He finished his 135 miles in 3hrs14min!!! If I get anything else from them I will let you know!

WAY cool Allan- That's averaging over 40mph! Good Job!

Some stats... #88 is 18 hrs 56 min and 1st in Modern Vintage Open. 26th place overall out of 43 bikes with LAMEinator. #888 Honxilla is 1st in their class, 18th overall with a time of 15 hrs 52 minutes... This is the result at the end of day 3.

LAMEinator update

John Sr. here checking in. Were in La Paz at the hotel. Incredibly found another caliper for the front brake. Unincredibly we cant so far get it to work. Wont bleed. Have now put our resident genius{s on and we are hoping for a miracle. Front brake or no were finishing tomorrow.
BTW. Mexican computers work about ńike you would expect.
Somebody got a video of Patrick hiting the front brake and the resultant carnage and mayhem. It was hysterical. Will probably show up on worlds funniest home videos. PS. Spanish must not use our puncuation marks. Honzilla is just sounding and running better and better.

pressure from the top or vacuum from the bottom, in the automotive world we used to use a pressure bleeder that clamped over the top of the master cylinder and fed pressurized fluid down thru the system, nowadays they use a vacuum pump attached to the low side bleeder valve and pull the fluid down thru. you could improvise vacuum off the blue rhino and just use a long hose from an intake vacuum port to the bottom bleeder, open the valve, feed fluid from the top and run the rhino and use a long clear line so you can see the fluid when it pulls into the line. damn I wish i was there to help!

Also make sure there are no obstructions in the caliper, carefully field strip it if you have to, clean it up clear passages and reuse old parts as needed

I have used a syringe with a vinyl clear bit of hose to the zerk. pull the plunger out to create the vacuum as someone cracks open the bleeder. Late nite break in to a medical clinic should provide all you need... or just pretend you have a broken arm... or ask nicely...

Good luck on the final leg!!!!

Laugh Optimism at a high

There are several modern bikes and the Honda 500 that has been true and steady... at the same hotel we are staying at. Optimism is at a high this morning.... all riders have a skip in their step. Owen will jump on for a section on the Honzilla bike, with Allan and Johnny finishing.
On the LAMEinator Chris will start once again with Patrick taking the special section and bringing it home!!
EVERY rider has really come thru!! The chase crew has combined talent that kept these bikes going when it looked questionable.

OKAY HERE WE GO, KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED!!
