Night before the longest day went for a planned evening ride into night. Approaching the first planned rest spot I had a tip over that damaged either neutral switch or side stand interlocks preventing starter & engine operation. Fortunately some head scratching & the on-board tool kit eventually got things running again long after dark.
Still it was nice to watch the fading evening light even from under the bike.;)

I sure appreciate tools, a flashlight and strong headlights when venturing into remoter areas as well as appropriate Adventure boots to hike whatever necessary miles out if needed.
Fortunately Adam was with me and could have given me a ride home should I have been unable to effect repairs that night. Would have been possible but not easy to return with a truck and tools the next day but I was really relieved to get things running again.

The long range lights sure project a tight square beam pattern. Who says you can't get range out of LEDs? Just need the right lens.

Some of my more memorable rides involved trailside repairs to prevent being stranded.
Such as laying a 175cc enduro on its side to preserve oil while reseating a blown clutch seal.

For the interlocks, it is very helpful to know if a bypass requires closing or opening a circuit.

Good job, Fred!

I see you were on Nibbler. How goes the the Betty Boop check-up? She was looking a bit disgruntled after the Admiral ride.

Disgruntled? Currently getting re-gruntled.:rolleyes:
Picking up new rear brake shoes today. After Admiral's Idaho ride I decided I need an effective rear brake now and then. Air filer and oil serviced , plus tightened a few things since Adam wants another chance at those single tracks tomorrow with Betty Boop this time.
One of these days I need to park Betty & install those suspension upgrades to get a comparable long throw plush ride as Nibbler's but I am having too much fun playing with her TTR225 motor.
