Looks like a VERY LONG, VERY LONESOME Highway.

Ran out gas.....
Unfortunate run in with a pothole.
Wow, that's not going to buff out!
Completely off topic, but just to make you all feel better... "it could be worse". At least youre not rebuilding your truck engine in the middle of the desert...
Is this on a planet where tow trucks don't exist?
So, the oem radiator guards didn’t prevent the puncture?
One day later we learned the humiliating way it wasn’t ...
Another broke down BMW story......lower rear shock bolt sheared off (WTF?)..on Mingus mountain AZ near Jerome no cell reception of course. Rigged it up with nylon straps, duct tape, rode to cell service called a buddy arranged a meeting point and rode 50 miles more at about 15MPH. Bike was over 100K miles at the time. Fixed up in a few days and did another 25K until replacing the bike. Well that's why we adventure
I had what I thought was a starter one way clutch issue with my 77 Honda 750... turns out to be the flywheel loosened and decided to spin on the crank... very odd..
My riding partner dropped his bike at a stop sign and broke the shift peg off the lever. Made a quick field repair with a pair of vise grips to get him home. I think he rode like that for a couple of months before he ever got around to replacing the shift lever
STELLA not at her best . Had to Uhaul it home from Hardin MT , 40 miles south of Billings .
Final drive failure .
How many miles? Wrong oil?
70,000 miles . Final drive oil was clean as new . The GS 1150 is well know for this type of final drive failure . I think it affects many different models from a certain era .
From the Baja Enfield ride...
Harley rider turned into the GS (he didn't look back), his fender missed the BMW rider's leg by millimeters, causing significant damage to the Jesse bag and the GS:
Damaged caused by this fender:
Technically, this was not a breakdown but an accident. The GS was rideable but was later totaled as the damage repair estimate exceeded $9,000. Fortunately, no injuries.
