Snapped my throttle cable today.

After 6500 miles my throttle cable decided to go. I made it about a mile down the road today when I lost all power, leaving me having to push it to the side of the road. Just glad this didn’t happen on our trip. I installed the new break pads just to find out nothing is wrong with the old ones. It just breaks different now.

  1. 6500 miles and 32 years! That’s not too bad. We were blessed with great success on that trip. We pushed those bikes harder than they’ve ever been pushed. Over loaded them and we ran WOT for hours on end. We were blessed with success.
