    :devildogSome adventures start better than others.... Transmission give up on the truck while on the 15 fwy tonight about 100 miles from home. BTW wind was crazy! there were a bunch of semi turned on the side on the 15 becuase of the high wind. was able to coast to the shoulder and waited for 2 and half hour for tow truck...and AAA wanted to charge me for double tows because I had the bike on the bed of the truck... let’s says that did not go well in the mood I was. Anyway towed the truck back in town and in a parking lot waiting for transmission shop to open in the AM and see what is the damage. just heard a loud bang and was able to make few more hundred yards before lost power even if the engine was revving normal. Once on the shoulder only two setting that worked was parking and neutral no gear would engage. I tried to see under if the drive shaft or transfer cases exploded but could not see much. with the day should be able to figure something out. If I get few hours of sleep and manage to forget about today I may try to ride in tomorrow...

    Just an update, it was the transmission and it is a big job. I asked the shop if they can keep the truck until monday and will take a decision at that point. Right now i’m trying to repack the essentials put gas on the bike and do the 325 miles on the old Cagiva. Hopefully I will see you tonight. :super

    As usual I botched a repair job last night so I won't be riding out till Friday AM. I guess it was for the better as the winds and cold weather on the Cajon Pass didn't sound fun. See ya'll tomorrow!
