In case you are wondering why i am stopped in a cornfield in BFE Iowa...
(Which looks the same as the rest of iowa)

My rear cylinder wrist pin came loose and totally fucked the bore.

Anyone out there have cylinders or new sleeves?

Hahaha

Dammit!

Having read the RR when Doug built a chopper to ride across Russia, and the DIrtster RR, and his garage thread, I kinda figured this one would be good, too. Even if he wasn't riding the BAM, it's Doug; something fun/weird/interesting always happens! Like him pissin' on the Hardley building! But two cylinders galled, plus moisture collecting in the distributor?

shit!
