Ending back country route far from home.

On the BDR in Elko, Nevada.
(Transmission?) noises suggesting impending catastrophic failure. Precipitation and sub freezing temperatures forecast for Jarbidge. My buddy is going on and I need to get my fully loaded bike home to Prescott Arizona.
U-Haul has a 10 foot truck coming back in this afternoon, but if there's anyone in Elko with a ramp I sure would appreciate using it to load up.
Thanks in advance!

Yes! Good news I think - situation described in this new thread.

Long story short: I may have been able to continue riding, with only a 1 or 2 day delay for parts.
