Brant, come on and get off of dead center and tell us you are coming down! For heaven's sakes it's your old stomping grounds.

Hey, it was nice in Durango, it was just getting over those 2 passes on either side of Silverton in the snow that kinda sucked.

Wouldn't have been too bad if Bigelow's bike hadn't busted.. I think he did it on purpose so he could ride in the nice warm wrecker.

Didn’t you guys have a final drive sent out overnight or something like that to do the fix?

2011 Durango rally was over the Fourth of July weekend. A lot of traffic it seemed and it was as hot as the devil‘s crotch too. We stopped partway up red Mountain Pass on the way back to Durango on the Saturday ride. My 80SG sounded really unhappy while idling and restarting with the 15W40 oil having thinned out a crazy amount in the heat I am sure. That was “Pikes Peak” type of heat with respect to the bike. Next day it was back to normal after a good cool down coming back into Durango and sitting overnight.

Spline drive for the rear wheel. Funny thing is I had brought one to Russ in KC where we all met up.

Guess I should have kept it with me because it cost $100 to have it overnight shipped to Durango.

We had a good stay there though. Had a $150 supper at the BBQ there. LOL. Good food.
