    Hello everyone, my name is John Bruce and I am on a group ride from Tennessee. A few miles from San Miguel my 1150gs transmission puked a ton of oil all over the rear tire and I got a wobble in the drivetrain. Shut it down and had it towed. We are in SME until tomorrow and then Guanajuato until Saturday morning. Is there a chance I can get this fixed in time to depart. Recommendations would be much appreciated, and the sooner the better. 9313094272. And whatsapp is preferred cause I am not the most technically savvy. I'm at hotel Monjas while in SMDE.

    The great state of confusion
    There is an ace bike mechanic in San Miguel that could at give you some guidance,
    and I would certainly trust him to repair it, but he would definetly have to order in parts ...
    He doesn't hold that kind of stuff in inventory unless.... there's a story behind it ;-)

    His name is Alberto Clave and you can WhatsApp him at: (415) 149-8649
    He's a frigg'n motogenius and a hell of a nice guy.
    Fluent in both Spanish and English.
    His shop is in south city off Stirling Dickinson.

    Tell him Jim Wooden gave you his name ;-)
