Here is the ride report from the leader of the group. His first one anyway.
2007 Canadian Sport Tour (CST) Short Trip Report - NESR Forums
I had a couple of issues on the road. Nothing too major. The sprocket was the biggest pain.
So today I finally got the bags off my bike and cleaned it up to acess the damage. In case I didnt mention it before after the first day the pipe got too hot on the right side and damaged the pipe, the bag and some luggage. I was Mcguyver and made a heat shield from common hardware store parts and was able to get it home without further incident using a cookie sheet and some safety wire. Worked like a charm. When I was washing the bike today I found a crack in my front fairing and have no idea how it got there. Can it be plastic welded? Jamie where did you go?
Pic of crack...
Pic of pipe damage. I e mailed Dan Kyle, 125 for new sleeve, 50 for packing wool. I think it was the packing which failed cause the left side was fine for the whole trip.
Here is my Mcguyver fix.
And here was my dirty ass bike. Oh yeah, forgot to mention front left fork seal went out. You can see the leak on the fairing. Pete I will be making an appointment in a couple weeks. All 3 of my bikes will be coming in.
