So, to continue Richard's story...
After getting the clutch squared away, he later stops for fuel and notices the water pump leaking. It's not a big job on his little engine, just three bolts. No big deal, right?
... Unless one of the three bolts breaks off! So that takes another day of wrangling , but is finally overcome. Ready to ride again, but wait! What's wring with the brakes
Seems that sometime during all the activity underhood he nudged a rusty steel brake line. Now there's that to find and install. Another day or two...
So when we overtake him on the turnpike on 2/22, he's been enroute from Michigan since 1/24! Talk about a trip to remember!
