How do you feel about this?
I find this predicament interesting, having to tear down to fix the leaking main seal and replace the clutch. I've wondered, after reading many posts on this subject, how I'd feel about the BMW when 'my time came'. Well my time has come, although I had planned on tearing into it this coming winter. I'm just slightly ahead of my own schedule. But for all the bad I've read, and the anger that many seem to feel, I'm not that upset about it. I'm really thankful that I found this in my shop, and not on the side of the road in a land far far away.
So, clean the shop, spend some quality time reading the Clymers and some posts, and in we go. Actually, it's almost a good thing. 68,000 miles on her, just got the new shocks installed, have the Russell Day-long seats, love the bike, and now I'll have a new clutch etc., and might as well get the FD rebuilt just for the he!! of it. No longer feel the burning desire to see what the new and improved LT might be.
Just not that big a deal. Certainly not enough to get in a big huff about, or vent and pout. I just may have to lean on a few of you guys in the next week or so, so don't go too far, K?
How have you that've gone before me feel about it?
Oh, and Silver Buffalo: it wasn't my fault, honest!!!
