All's good when you can do field repairs and continue ride in same day.
Yeah well that wasn't the only one we had to do on this ride..
We had originally intended on riding Bartlett Springs Road, but since we had the brake snafu we went with plan B.
Shortly after we had the brake issue we discovered Snakeboy's GPS wire had come apart so we fixed that when we fixed the brakes in the auto parts store parking lot in Santa Rosa, CA.
I had called MB4 earlier and he offered us his garage and tools but he had to leave by 1:30. Thanks Mark. We couldn't make it in time so we did the parking lot patch up.
We decided to slab it up 101 to Hopland and take the Old Toll Road over to Lake County. It's about 20 miles of miles dirt roads.
While we were on the long steep up hill section I noticed that the temp gauge was pegged at the Hot mark. Uh Oh...
We were communicating with our Blinc bluetooth headsets and I ask how his temp was and he said it was in the middle. That is were mine should have been..
Time to stop and check it out. Hey! There is a fuse in there! Um... It's my Stebel horn fuse..
Of course I never did my fan fuse relocation.. But from what I could tell my fan was not coming on. Checking the Coolant reservoir and that's full.. Good.
After a while my bike cooled down and since we were done with the uphill section and I didn't feel like taking apart my bike to get to the fan fuse we headed out.
Hopefully Snakeboy is going to chime in with some comments and a picture or two.
Here we are taking a break in the Shade.
