None yet Eddie. I have put about 400 miles on the KLR since BWDR. I guess it was just time for the main fuse to go. At least we learned how to get to it for the next time it happens. Hopefully it will be running good at Camp Cow Crap, so you can ride it.

Fuses don't just blow, be sure to carry an extra one or a circuit breaker to get you home also Guy would be a good one to ask about places to check for shorts on those bikes. AB:-)

If the fuse blows every time how does a circuit breaker get you home?
I'd like to have a back up plan.

It resets as it cools so it may work on and off

Hey there Savanna

We're kind of lousy with tigers so could you bring a cherry 74 Yamaha 360?

Damn my memory is getting bad. That was my first bike I bought in 1976 from a friend of my dad's who happen to live next door to my grandparents. He was an A&P mech and the bike was flawless. Paid $500 and I sold to one of my college buddies who is still in STL. I need to see if Joe Jump still has that bad boy. It will cost me 3k to get it back

Edit: I met Joe at Parks college in 1980 and after talking for awhile it turns out I took over his Imo's pizza delivery route in 1976...........small world.

it's more about having to use 36hrs of vacation time but I really appreciate the offer. I'm scheduled to work BWDR this year too Dean (just like last year). BiWDR...funny.
