You went down the Ledge Road of Death side to Georgetown without good brakes ??? Glad you made it down and home.

Here's some vid of me in the rock garden spending some time where quite a few of us spent some time. Damn low hanging rear LCA brackets, even my bracket sliders didn't help

Great day, thank for putting it together and Jeff for leading (again)

Now someone tells me the LEDGE ROAD OF DEATH! JEFF!!!

No biggie. I got to know how a Auto works and remembered the conversation with my uncle when he had little to no brakes. 4:88s and 4 low made it possible. Just the switch backs...

Sorry he is the american blood line. For years his scrambler brakes were weak. He used the low gearing to slow it down enough with what brakes he had. That is why he was always in the back of the trail ride. Looks like i am down the same path of trying to figure it out. Thanks again for the help Steve. I owe you some brake fluid with out the mayo.

No. The fire extinguisher hose works fine for my power steering return line. It was the hose clamp that blew off. Which reminds me, I owe Yoder a hose clamp.

Thanks again Jeff. I had a good time. Big day with a large group and numerous issues for many.

Kenny, I have an extra snatch block. Is it yours?
