Not real sure. Dave and I were trying to play doctor and diagnose the problem on the drive home. Couple of consistencies in the past couple of rides where issues have occurred.

Rain each time.
Just filled with sub-grade ethanol free (can't imagine why this would affect anything)

We've got a couple of hairbrained ideas. Hopefully one of them will pan out.

Will definitely keep everyone updated.

I can't say thank you enough to him. I hated inconveniencing the group and it's happened the past three time I've been out. The ADV community has been very helpful throughout.

Dave and I are going to pull the bike apart to try and diagnose the issues.

In the meantime, had a great time and enjoyed making a few new friends.

apparently it was the Berg thing to do this weekend...
(From the MMM thread)

Here are a couple short videos I shot with my camera. The first one is on top of the mountain watching the clouds move by.


And the second one is of a waterfall with three falls as you follow it up the mountain.
