Now if only my mechanic will say "Gee - I should have replaced that when I replaced your clutch 5000 miles ago - this one's on me!".
I had one fail on a road trip. I rode 600 or so miles in a day with zero clutch, and got it fixed at my next stop, that was Denver. I will admit I looked pretty silly pulling into gas stops on my beautiful fully packed BMW wearing a full BMW Rally II suit and bouncing to a stop each time. People would look at me like "Daymn, that guy can't ride a lick". I would say, "If you liked that, wait until I leave, it gets even better"
