Leaving the Delta Diner today my clutch started slipping anytime I got enthusiastic with the throttle. Maybe I should not have had that piece of pie for dessert after all.

I was able to gently ride it the 175 miles home. Once close to home I pinned it a few times and the clutch held. I am guessing once warmed up thermal expansion comes into play.

Thinking I should replace the clutch before going far away from home again.

Before going all in just check to make sure your cable adjustment is correct. May save you some hassles.

I have done 3 clutches in early 80's UJM bikes. ALL of them the plates looked OK but the springs were week. You may be able to get a bunch more life out of it by simply replacing the springs and no the whole deal.

I am going to check the clutch pushrod adjustment but I don't think that's it. With ~80,000 miles and lots of abuse it probably is ready for new parts.

Great day for a ride so headed north towards Detroit Lakes. Stopped for fuel in Osakis and the RT wouldn't crank when I was ready to go. Let it sit for about 10 minutes and it managed to start. Stopped at a couple of places in Alex and no one had a battery to fit. It started fine at both dealerships so I decided to skip Detroit Lakes and head for home (the roundabout way). Got home fine with a good 300 mile ride for the day but I think the battery has given me fair warning and it's time for a new one!

Dirt Bike Tech!

Had a fun day taking their rider course in Forest Lake. Met a few avid off road riders trying to lose some bad habits. My DR was definitely the big bike there and the stock tires were fine until we went on a trail ride after class. A bit to swampy for the tires. Feeling a bit more confident on dirt and have some fun skills to hone the next time I wander off road!

It was a trail connected to the Waldoch Sports property and ran back behind some corn fields. Waldoch let's the classes happen on their property.

Did you feel like you should have taken the advance class ?

I took the class down here but very basic.

Yep, first part was too basic and the two other guys felt the same. Problem is you HAVE to have this class first. We just smiled as we did the clutch friction exercises! Once we got doing circles in the dirt by weighting pegs, standing and such is was fun. Liked swinging the rear tire out in the dust!

Trip idea?

All this talk of off-road riding has me thinking.

Would anyone be interested in a day (two day?) ride up the TMAT east trail to Duluth and then back?

Maybe the weekend after or two weekends after the BBQ ride?

I may have ulterior motives, as I have a buddy moving to the Moose Lake area and this would be a good way to scout for grouse hunting in the area.
