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:

The American Canyon Resource Thread
http://www.expeditionutah.com/forum/showthread.php?t=40

Canyonlands Permits changed (requires some clarification for Moto / ATV).

CANYONLANDS PERMITS CHANGED

They'll probably LOSE money doing it.

One more vote for a bigger, more complex government.

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

I will say that dealing with the BLM is a f'ing nightmare, complete utter bureaucracy but a complete mess. For example this is why there are so few guides that do anything that leaves a BLM district. The paperwork to get a commercial permit for the area is buried under 126 other applications that take 6 months to process, per district. It is an example of some of government at its worst...

I just rode up to Bear lake Sunday and don't remember anything. Must have just started. I rode back via hardware ranch and ant flat. Good dirt roads with just a few rocks. I did it on my cruiser with wifey on the back. Evanston to Randolph is so boring anyway. I finally rode the chalk creek road all the way to Evanston, too. Much nicer than the interstate. -al
