    Bummer!

    I'm lucky enough to have never had that happen to me. Though I did have a fun time helping flag a family friend through intersections when his motorcycle got stuck in 5th gear. Glad to hear you were alright and that the fix will be covered.

    Hopefully not too far; don't want to add a new clutch to the repair bill.

    We rode ahead of him and got everyone's attention at intersections so he could blow through around 35 mph minimum. We thought he fell asleep or lost his mind when he blew the first one but we caught up and played charades. This was at the end of a 2000 mi trip, about 5 miles from home. Much further out and we would have called him a cab and waved goodbye. All in all it wasn't a big deal in suburban MN, but a pretty memorable end to a boring highway cruise.
