Question spare fuel pump?

Great ride report and super pics! Makes me miss CO especially since it's been raining for 30 hours straight here on the Mexican Riviera.

Time to toss the kickstand switch and put a real chain on that WR. Prob time to re-gear it for your style and terrain while your at it.
Are you going to carry a spare fuel pump on your next ride?

I'm thinking that high revving 250 might be fun down here in Mexico but I worry about reliability out in the Mexican desert riding WFO for hours at a time not to mention playing at elevation in the Sierra Madre mountains.

Nice work PDX! No $0.50 Cuba Libre's but the scenery was pretty damn good. Feeling like a bum that I missed out. I would have been laughing at Fritz in the clay and he probably would have kicked my ass so it might have been for the better.
