I came across this in the basement. It is pretty funny. Perfect advice for anyone looking to be "cool".

I just forgot to mention you're not on a Yamaha.

The nice thing about BMW following automotive style drive train design, is that you get to talk about 2/3 of the bike just to get to the clutch. This little repair took between 50-60 hours and about $1700 in parts. No one has ever attempted a wheelie on her bike, this is just from ridding. There is no way I would try a wheelie on a BMW knowing what the consequences are.

This is what her R1100S looked like when I finally got the clutch out of it.

Okay, I have a small confession. When Steve owned it I tried to get the front end up
a few times. Yes there may have been some minor clutch use at that time.

C'mon baby . . .


I DO have a funny story:

I was about due for a rear tire on my R1200GSA and decided to roast it before I traded it out.

So, I went into my cul-de-sac and revved the engine. I saw all kinds of smoke coming out of my bike and thought I was the King of the World.


Turns out, my rear wheel wasn't spinning at all. . . it was my clutch burning up.

Man, I'm an idiot.

I felt like this guy:





So, unlike others who frequent the Utard thread (who shall remain nameless), I can admit my problems and idiocy.

Firstly, I never mentioned anyone by name.

Secondly, I'm in.

Some Swell Blues - cont

Continuing Trailtwister's report...

We left SLC Friday morning in a rain / snow storm heading for the swell. Swasey's cabin area was the target. Unfortunately, it was 29 deg F when we arrived at that area. Making an executive decision, we decided that we really wanted to go east to a lower elevation for a nite where it might be warmer.

We ended up in the Blue Hills area near the Enduro trail...



We saddled up & hit the trail. Stopping to check history...



This is a nice trail with much variety...



TT pointing out that I have another scratch on my bike...



Then looped around to pick up Mary's...



The slick rock is a hoot to ride...





This area was entertaining...



A bit of rejoicing once we got thru...



The wind continued to blow all night making it a "no camp fire" evening. So we enjoyed the comfort of the trailer with our steaks n wine. The next day we packed up & backtracked to Swasey's area to meet Barry.



Barry led us up to ride Devil's Racetrack, down the wash & up into the canyons. He is a no frills rider & claimed to have been riding non-stop since a being teen. It showed. He rode a well "seasoned" '07 250 SX that he had honed to perfection. I usually only saw his dust. Luckily he would stop n wait, asking where we had been upon arrival...






Returning to camp via Eagle Canyon...



The weather had been perfect that day, a far contrast to the previous. Barry had brought along a truck load of wood which we proceeded to stuff into the campfire while washing away the dust with a few brews, rye & the like. Barry promised to abuse us the next day properly.

After a good breakfast (squamish ?? I think TT called it), we loaded the bikes to go the trail head for Five miles of hell...



Checking the marker at the start of FMoH...



This doesn't look good...



We worked our way in about 1/4 mile...



Barry had jumped up on a ledge that I knew was beyond my abilities to do....



So we turned around & followed the orange trail out with Barry muttering that I needed a lighter bike. A stop for map consultation...



We wound our way back to the truck & camp site to call it a day. All was good...

And I was good n tired!
