Looks like you are having a great trip!
Thanks for mentioning it sintax

Yeah, not one of Harleys better idea.Putting oil from a chain drive primary back into the engine oil. Mod was done before I got it, and I have done the mod to my bikes in the past.

Having a great time. Loving Utah. I am thinking Colorado tomorrow.....we'll see what happens :)
