Another little trip :)
« on: August 07, 2018, 12:51:51 AM »
I went on a little trip last week...quick summary below with a few pictures :)

3 days travel
1,599 miles
States: Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia

Notable Events: Lost my chain while riding, found it on the road and repaired in on the side of the road. Had rain, wildlife (including being chased by a rogue cow) traffic, got lost, and had a total blast!

Looks like quite an adventure. The chain snap? Have it adjusted too tight?

I don't think the master link clip was engaged properly

I check my master link clip every time I oil the chain, about every 200 miles or so.  Have never had an issue with a clip on master link and this DID chain is rated for up to a 750cc bike so my little 500cc class engine should never come anywhere near the limits it can handle.

I think we have the same chain... the chain itself was awesome... lt hasn't had any stretch and came through the master link fiasco without any issues

Sounds like a great ride.
I had a DID Xring chain fall off in Wyoming when the master link clip failed. According to the the service manager of the place where the chain was installed, it is far more likely for a clip to fail than for a chain to fall off due to improper installation.
