You're probably right, unless the oil was 250 degrees???? Was the oil operating temp, or on a cool bike?

I was heading up East Canyon Saturday on the way to Bear Lake. Right by Little Dell where the road
is straight and wide a bicycle rider on the right side of the road did a complete U turn on me without
looking. It's the first time on the street I can remember the Tenere ABS pulsing. I'm the brakes and horn
hard. Had I been in a car I don't think I could have missed him.

That would have been a scene where you would drive by and wonder how the hell two bikes are
down in the middle of the road, straight section, extra room on both sides......

At the summit where there is a gravel parking lot on the South side I had just come over the
top into the left hand turn and a double upped cruiser decided to cross the road into the parking
lot. I didn't even have time to brake. It was a swerve to miss. About then I was thinking not a great
day to be on the road.

The good news is, as Trackhead mentioned, I was able to get the surgical tubing out fine,
the gerbil sadly did not survive.

We remove those sorts of things in the ER if you need some help.

The bigger danger is that the tubing was just hot enough to make it sticky and it's adhered to the inside of the frame as it cooled. That would make the circulating idea a bit difficult to work unless you could heat the oil. It also makes it difficult to dislodge with a probe as it could break off where it's stuck.

Was it the clear or yellow tubing that your buddy was using? Seems the yellow stuff is thinner and floppier, might be more prone to a slight melt and adherence........

Speaking of unattended riders: Friday at about 5:45, heading north on I-15 there were 2 ADV riders on the fast lane. One riding a Wee and the other riding some type of an XR, I think. I pulled up next to them to say hi, they didn't see me. I turned my blinkers on to pretend I was about to merge in between them, they didn't see me. I honked while right next to them, not a flinch.

I figured they were so tired of riding they'd not have noticed me unless I had big boobs and flashed them while half my body hung out the window so I drove off.

As far as catheters, just carefully run a bailing wire on the inside of the oil tank and feel for it. If you don't feel anything, just fill it with oil and go for a ride. Once the oil circulated through the system, drain it, change it and forget about it. If you DO feel something, see if it moves or if its stuck. you may need to heat the side of the oil pan to get it unstuck but do it slowly so you won't anneal the steel.

A couple of good things from www.ExpeditionUtah.com that I thought I'd share:

They'll probably LOSE money doing it.

As an aside, much fresh chip seal and related madness on HWY 30 up north from woodruff to Bear lake area, passed through today, looks like they are just really gearing up
