I sure feel better knowing you'll be riding behind a fresh drivetrain. Unfortunately, reliable drivelines kill some adventure and McGyver moments.

We are looking forward lots of miles with the comfort that only a hands on ownership mental checklist can give you.
And being able to fix it if it breaks!
Hopefully, it will run good right out the gate so my focus can change gears and get my wife out here to the shop with a roll of masking tape and her sketchbook.
I am enjoying the hell out of this.

Them are the perks.

I love an excuse to get a new tool.

Motor looks GREAT ! I hope you get a helper to guide it in.
