TET Day 4 = no 4th Gear!

Barney and I awoke to a frost warning in Franklin this morning and decided to hit the road/trail at 9. Everything was awesome until we made it down to Wolf Pen Gap when my bike lost 4th gear!

We decided to try continuing on since I could still use 1st through 3rd as well as 5th and 6th. When we got to Ellijay I bought some oil so I could do another change ( just changed it in Blairsville yesterday).

When I was draining the tranny I could see a chunk of metal in bottom end...shit!

Crazy!

We still managed to ride 200 miles today. Tonight were in Reseca and will be back at my truck in Cheaha tomorrow.

All in all, we've had an awesome trip with some of the finest off road riding anywhere!
