Anybody around Atlanta, I'm always open for a ride unless its kids weekend.

Congrats! Nicely done Marshy!

If you break a chain... there is no protection for your slave cylinder. Luckily it was still working. This happened in the middle of the Yukon. Not 1 car, truck or moto passed as I put my new chain on. If it would have taken out my slave cylinder, I would have been fooked.


Your Touratech guard will be worthless afterwords.

Yup this what happens when your chain snaps and takes out the clutch slave



On a brighter note went for a wee trail ride today and checked out some rivers.
