Maybe you should say a little prayer too - it's likely to help as much as the oil change will.

Are you going to be able to ride in the Roaming Rally if it's still not releasing the clutch properly? You may want to look into it asap before it's too late.

Hey Mike!
Oil change worked for Jeffs.
If not, it ain't gonna get fixed. I'm flat broke and still have to get Insurance since I WAS with Jevco...
Made it from GA to here so I should be able to drive it. Just can't get into neutral;)

The reason I mention it is that that kind of problem causes the clutch plates to heat up and wear out much faster than normal, often warping the metal plates which you don't normally need to replace when you change your friction plates.

If you're not worried about that then I won't mention it again.

Sold the KTM SM yet?

Day 3 (cont)
Rain and I are playing "follow the leader". Every time I get ahead of the rain, my gas light comes on and I have to stop. Clouds catch up at these times.
Gas stops are becoming very frustrating...

Get a X-Tank. And if you still have a stock seat, get a Seat Concepts seat.
Two amazing changes to the XC.
Are you still doing a RR on your trip home from buying the bike?

Just kidding. Now is a good time to be riding.

Really hate the"pay in advance" system for gas. Its a real PITA!! Especially with a Canadian bank card and credit card that won't allow me to pay at the pump.
Glad we don't do this at home.

After almost 12 hours and over 500 miles,I made it to PA and Jeff (MXRNPA) 's house with only a minor couple detours (read "the GPS got me lost"ghead:)
Glad to be off the road before total darkness.
Jeff is the real deal and opens his home to me. And his beer
I even get private accommodations in the camper out back :
He'd been out all day clearing a trail for a hare scramble. He's a serious rider and gives me a tour of his garage.
However, after the long day all I can think of is bed so after a beer and some small talk I excuse myself and hit the hay.

The camper was great but, heater ran out in the middle of the night. It got COLD. Good thing I had my -17 sleeping bag. Slept well!
Don't want to get up too early for my hosts , but i'm chomping at the bit to get going.
After a quick breakfast and thank you's i'm on the road again.

The end....
