Break cleaner was out as soon as i got there, damaged a clutch pad trying to remove to get a clean slate behind the wheel. Went for a test drive, left in light light rain, 5 mins later ended up in steady rain in the middle of nowhere land, probably another 10 km trip for a test,.. Clutch grabbed good, but noticed a weird slapping ticking sound when i started her up that dissipated with higher rpm.
2 kms from the gas station ran out of gas, had to pedal in the rain up hill. filled up, drove by a cop at a light.
that about it.

Dang it... NOT a nice ride or overall experience at all...

Glad you made it safely though.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
