Gotcha, I had that happen to me on a dirt bike. Luckily I noticed it before total carnage..

I guess the lesson to be learned here is aside from bike preperation on a major road trip like that, keep an extra $5,000 in the bank in case the current bike fails.
Have a safe trip back.

Yep. I had a great freaking time. The scenery the first couple days going through Banff National Park was amazing. Just wish I'd been able to ride in Alaska. I am amazed with how awesome and generous Alaskans are.

Motohouston needs a contingent at D2D next year.

Aw !! That motor committed suicide. Truly sorry you couldn't make the trek home, but you live to ride another day! Bravo on the adventure!

Yep. A dude on an 1150GS had his shaft snap and somehow broke the single side swingarm sending him flying near where I broke down. He walked away but I'm sure he's still hurting.

I think I saw that store by the wal mart on the Johanssen Exprwy, but maybe not.

I sold the bike for $1,300 and I'm almost home. Layover in Denver. Had I known the engine was as bad as it was I'd have immediately rented a truck, driven to anchorage to pick up a bike just like mine for $3,500, driven back and swapped out my mods & found someone to store and sell the old one.
