Ocotillo Wells New Bike Break in

after getting the 530 exc i figured what a better way to break it in. I arrived friday around noon and took it real easy doing laps on the roads in OW. I had a vapor lock issue and didnt know what it was and had to push my bike back to camp once so i called it a day for riding by myself. TWS met me later that night and we drank some beers with a few of the neighbors who where characters to say the least. nice guys but a little off the rockers if you know what i mean.

Morning came and RhinoRoof showed up for a day ride with us. So the first ride we did was out to superstition. i had never been there before so RR and TWS lead the way for me. After Supserstition we headed back for lunch. i pull a rib muscle getting up but get over it. we head to the blue inn for lunch and in the end i get all puky from it and TWS ends up with a crazy rash from some allergic reaction.. sketchy.

but anyway we head out for another ride after lunch to a nice canyon slot. this is where i get all pukey but push through it and ride anyway. on the way back we lose TWS and he just boogies back to camp while we are doubling back looking for him. Now its pretty much dark and its RR and I im feeling it at this point but im trying to keep up with RR so he can use my light. We get all the way back to cahulla rd and i get the vapor lock issue again. I thought maybe iw as out of gas and tell RR to head to camp and grab some as its not far now. Then i get my bike started and start heading to camp when i see RR laying in the dirt... WTF... some quadtards where running double wide on the rd and ran him off into the nasty stuff. i guess it tweaked his bike a little but he was ok....


it actually was a lot funner then it sounds ... here is the vid and remember to watch in HD
 
Nice video, it looks like a good day out there in OW but as usual there is always some quadtards to make things difficult. That key chain flapping in the wind may tend to bug me after a while. :thinking:
 
cool video Trav. Was a day to remember for sure.
felt bad the way it ended and i really do appreciate you sticking around for me...:foul:quadtards tho..... what was the extent of the damage to your bike ?.... and can you believe ALL that was because of a vapor lock issue :picard:

Travace,

I kept watching for a breather tube in the video. If you happen to be running one of those little billet breather tube caps, take it off and chuck it as far as you can throw. I have seen this at least ten times, and every time it's the damned breather cap. Just run the normal hose that drops down the center of the headset and your problems will be solved.
