Talked to Doug in Gillette, Wy about 4 hours ago. Had not done the necessary grinding to get the front jug to go down. The Indian is still in the trailer. Plans on fixing it in Sheridan this evening. Seemed in good spirits and having fun.

I'm sure most all that crew involved in this are a bunch of good shits that'd be fun to hang out with....even though he'd rather be riding, you can bet.

Here I am watching Doug go down the highway, only to find out he wasn't on the Indian. I'll keep cheering him on to get it fixed and finish the ride.
Best of Luck til the end in SF.

ITS ALIVE!!!!!



and it actually runs really good.

now I am just wondering for how long.......

hahaha

tomorrow is a 4k foot climb up the big horns. luckily, they have given us a pass if we want, we can haul the bikes to the top. Wont get points for the miles missed, but no penalties either

with a new fresh topend, I didnt figure that would be a good way to break it in, so I will catch a ride to the top.

Then, hopefully the bike will do good, as we pass thru yellowstone.

Im really looking forward to that

Doug

I knew you'd get it working.

Yeah, don't waste your effort, truck it up. There are plenty more miles ahead as you know.

Really glad to hear that man. I know you were frustrated and tired of dicking with it. Hopefully you have gotten all of your bad luck behind you & it will be smooth sailing from here on out. Looking forward to the rest of the ride & hope to see you and Poly at Barber.

Ride safe..........John

Obviously a smart move missing this first climb,its a big enough pain to run a motor in on a trip,big mistake done once by me but to try that on a big mountain climb would be pushing your luck,BTW love this thread.
