Good luck with the wrenching. Hope it all works easily for you.

Any big bike rides going to happen? On some dirt roads? I may be at Stratton that weekend and might ride up for the day.

Usually, we just park all the bikes down by the beach. Everyone just mills around and ogles them and talks about riding, paint, tats and farkles. Every once in a while, someone will fire one up a twin with straight pipes on it and rev it up so we can listen to the echo across the lake. The lake residents love this part. When it gets dark enough, people skinny dip and then pass out in the sand. Some even ride the 1/4 mile down to the store for refreshments; others walk down. Then they do it all over again the next day. You are more than welcome to join in and could probably convince a few to go on an actual ride on dirt roads.

so the news on my 640 is a failed cam roller bearing, so far the parts list includes a new cam, cam roller and idler bearing. We'll see how long this takes?

Good luck with the parts. I miss the days when things were actually stocked. Too bad it is not a fishing boat parts list equivalent, you would probably be able to procure them quickly on the rock.
