Doug , Hal and I are back . Hal had a tweeked back before he left Lodi
Still has it.
I let my F650 take several "naps" ON the first the whole gang was headed cross country to Beaty NV I only made it about a mile before the first "Nap"
My bike refused to start once I got it upright. had to "Fool" around a bit . Doug made it to a cross road where Dino was waiting to direct Doug took Dino's place waiting for me ( Last as usual) when I did not appear he came back to look for my remains.
He made it about 100 Yards before his fully equiped GS took a nap. in his words "it must have landed on some Kryptonite" because when he tryed to pick it up " it felt like it was nailed to the ground"
Second "Tweeked back"
Doug and I went back took the pavement to Beaty NV and waited for "Awhile" for the gang to apear. When they did we had a picknick in the park
No sense telling you which one if you know Beady.
Then Doug and I started on Titus Canyon while the Gang toured Ryolite (??SP?)
Needles to say they cought me MY bike took another nap refused to start on it's own had to push up a small hill to bump start going down the other side.
Had to bump start for several stops . I hate Batteries.
To end the roumor Doug does have to stop to Pee at least once a weekend I saw the spot. ( tired of sharing yet?)
So i lived through the canyon Hit the pavement and thought Hey thats what this bike was made for ( not the dirt) so I was flying low ( short bike no wind screen ) ( No sense) Dougs lights dissepearing in the rear.
THinking to myself " you know that was not bad you bought this with a bad trans tore it all down - sort of fixed the trans ( another story) put it all together put 20 miles on it and came to DV " IF I had not been hanging on I would have patted myself on the back -
Bad Karma came to visit- slowing for a MTR Home with Jeep in tow I cranked it up to go arround and.......... nothing!
HMMM???? engine is running Clutch cable works but No Mo GO !
Parked it about two miles from Camp
Doug went for the trailer I looked at the sand. Lots of sand there you know.
Got it back and looked at the chain it looked "Loose" pulled a cover and Presto no NUT! OH for you "other" BMW owners the 650 has a Chain and the counter shaft sprocket has/had a nut holding it on. But you knew that
Not a chance in hell that DV had a 22mm nut so back on the trailer.
Doug resting his back.
Somewhere on Titus Canyon trail
And No MO Nut. Pick taken after i put the sprocket back on before it was resting on the shaft - hope there are enough left to put back on another nut/keeper.
Doug and some of the "Gang"
Dan and "Joe" I thought his name was Fin ?
And the end of the trail ( waiting for the shameful trailer ride back to camp)
