    Something went horribly wrong today --

    I was riding the DRZ toward Mancos to hit up the Aspen Trail when all of a sudden, the engine went out and forced me to pull over just after going about 60 mph on Hwy 160.

    The engine was still making noise almost like it was running but it was a 'less-noisy' sound as if only part of the engine was still running. I dont know -- its hard to explain. Nevertheless, the bike wouldn't start after that.

    Im scared that the cam tensioner may have gone or something worse.

    The bottom line is, I need a mechanic in the Durango area to take a look at it. I really want to avoid the bigger shops but will resort to their high labor fees if necessary.

    Please help....thanks :thumb
