BTW, that has to be one of the most remote Starbucks I've seen..

You mean a hydro-locked GS like this....?



Last time he ignores my advice after I waded the creek to find the right path...

Ha... well....It was completely flooded when we dragged it out of the water. We pulled the plugs, etc to drain it and it probably would have been fine.... had they not laid the bike on its side crushing and snapping off the ignition coil with the crashba. At that point it was a 185 mile tow truck ride to the nearest dealership...

Man that sucks! I bet he does listen next time. Viethorse, when these pigs get hydro locked (water/oil/fuel gets in the cylinder) you have to remove the plugs and hit the starter to clear the cylinder or you risk some pretty serious damage. Better safe than sorry.

Found this little dirt road on the way from the bay area to Fresno over the weekend. Gotta love super-smooth dirt roads Lotsa fun sliding the rear end all over the place on the big pig with the cases loaded up.
