    A big thanks to Hacky, MotoMamma, and Jake for stopping and lending a hand Sunday south of Glenallen... The beast wasn't all that happy with me that morning.

    But, thanks to your guidance and suggestions, I followed them after trucking (no trailer!) her home... She lives!

    I cleaned out all the electrical connections, put a bit of sealer on them, did a handful of other maintenance, and took the beast for a shake down run this evening. She :rabia me again!

    As if eveyone didn't already know this, you are some great people! Thanks again, and I owe you one! :thumb

    Only George would come up with the thought of two-up and both blind-folded.

    Hacky-
    Nice to see that you and MotoMoma took such nice care of Michigan Buell. We talked to him at the Chevron in Cantwell while he was waiting for the tire. He seemed like a real good guy and that you had things well in hand. I'm sure he will have stories to tell about the hospitality of those in the Great White North.

    meeting all the new people. Had a good time.

    I clocked about 1100 total. not to shabby. Got home Sunday. It would have been Saturday but mother nature got in my way coming back accross the Denali Hwy around 40 miles outside Paxson
    [​IMG]

    So I stopped at the World Famous Paxson Hotel:puke1 I did not want to get on the Denali after that storm. So i rolled in , could not see 15 feet in front and left a puddle when i checked in. Also i would not suggest the meatloaf either.
    Got up the next morning and all fine.
    Stopped for a bite at the Mclareon river lodge http://www.maclarenlodge.com/main.htm Great food, nice people.

    Came on across and was home in no time.

    Hacky promised Kevin that the replacement Buelly tire would be at the Cantwell Chevron around noon. I pulled in with the Miss Daisymobile at three minutes after. Not bad! I love it when a plan comes together. Fite
