Well, it happened...
My drive shaft broke and not at home either. No signs or warnings. Stopped at a light to turn left, let out the clutch and gave a little gas, and grind grind grind. Couldn't get it to go period. Ended up having to push the 2+ miles on a hilly road to get it home. Once I got to a safe spot, I turned it on and put it in gear and could feel the entine length of the driveshaft area vibrate right down to the axel hub.
So, this means my bike will be laid up at the shop getting fixed under warranty. So much for progress.
I only understand what I don't understand.
