Good to have everyone following.

I had to truck the bike home yesterday. I had a fuel delivery problem.My float valve stuck closed.I ordered a new needle valve and cleaned the valve bore/seat (not replaceable) the best I could. I'm glad it happened near the comforts of home and not in the middle of Kansas. ThrottleMeister would have had to save me there.

I remember very well getting saved by Doug and company in the middle of NM forest one time pushing a rather heavy dirt bike at least a good part of a 1/4 mile mostly uphill


Freaking sucks leaving your bike ditched in the woods Second time for me now, once in Panama and once in NM here:





I'll be more than happy to help you out where ever I can. Good luck man


Glad to hear you're getting that beast sorted out. I'd love to be with you along on this adventure put I've got plans with the knife man to get some iron removed from my leg.

You might just run into A Lewis are your way West, he should be headed East later this summer, think he is working on all or parts of the BAM on a dizzer.

See you around amigo

We camoed that bike so well,you need to tell people it's next to you.

I guess that's the Saint Adam Lewis I met in San Cristobal,Mx. I promoted him to sainthood when he loaded my GPS with his S.A. maps.I'd still be down there lost without his help.

Originally I was going to finish in Portugal.I don't know if the Netherlands will be my final destination or not. I plan to visit Meijel,Netherlands.During WWII someone met my father (deceased) in Ospel. They contacted me several months ago for information. I want to meet and visit a while.

That's a great reason to go there.

My dad used to work at Foz with Larry. Larry told dad who told me about the trip. Looking forward to following along. Best of luck,

Pete

I've been trying to encourage Larry to retire and enjoy some of this riding with me.I don't think he will ever ride with me again.Several years back we went riding in Hocking Hills.I divorced my bike and did a chest plant.He said I was out about 10 minutes.

If you want to visit Amsterdam let me know, it's a 20 minutes drive from my place. Meijel/Ospel is a 1.5 hour drive from here but its real nice there.

Anyway have fun, luck and be carefull.

I have been to busy to look at ADVRIDER the last 10 days.Ive had fuel problems.First I found a small piece of rubber in my needle jet, that caused it to stick open or closed.Then I found the new inline fuel filter I installed wouldn't allow enough fuel to pass to the carburetor unless the tank level was high enough to push it through. I guess it was made for a car that had a fuel pump. Anyway, I got it running again.I straped on my spare tires and went to bed.Over night I thought it was too much to carry.I decided to take the front tire only.I will need to put it on in Vancouver.Thr rear tire I will buy when I get to Korea.Thats where they are made anyway.

I left Saturday morning and went 100 miles and stopped for gas.When I hit the starter button, nothing happened. I checked the voltage and had 12.0 and 5.1 cranking.Thats when Mike Ralston offers to help.He let me hold on to his truck to bump start it.I went to Walmart and let them check the battery.If it was a charging system problem I would be in big trouble.All road shops were closed till Tuesday because of the holiday.Luck for me it was just the battery. 3 hours wasted, but Im on the on the road again.

I road 533 miles to Williamsburg, Iowa.All rain once I got to Illinois.Sunday I road 786 miles to Spearfish, South Dakota. Again, mostly rain.I have 2 more long days to get to Vancouver.Wednesday my bike gets crated.And Friday me and the bike take separate flights to Korea.

Whoa!!! Sounds like it's already an adventure. Did you by chance get a agm battery or old school?? Just thinking a wet cell bat may not like the nasty bumps in Russian roads??? Glad you're problems are being sorted where there is a Wally world on every corner. Let's hope when you crate it they all dissapear. Watching this one with toes and fingers crossed.
