Well after a seized shaft, bad final drive, two slave cylinders, still leaking slave, fuel strip, two headlight bulbs, and visiting 7 dealerships sadly we are home. Even with all that it was a fun trip when the bike was working, and would have been fantastic if we did not have to worry about it all the time. We had unheard of luck with the weather, after FORTY days we finally had to put on the rain suits in Hells Canyon, for a hard 4 hour storm. That was all the rain we had. It was good to see all the familiar faces and meet new ones. We are already planing for next year, maybe on different bikes, see you then.
