THANKS! Will do! I’m filming with my iPhone and editing them when and where I can with the Adobe Clip app on my iPhone. Any titles or text I want to put in is added to individual clips in iMovie, then saved to my camera roll and spliced into the rest of the footage with Adobe Clip.

It’s the best I can do on the fly with just my iPhone.

Where did you stop? Did you go to a dealer? What sort of electrical problems did you have?
We went into limp mode here:

37°49'18.7"N 108°09'07.1"W

It’s a few miles west of Groundhog Reservoir; Jeremiah pulled me east to 145 at Cayton Campground where an ABSOLUTE SAINT met us with his truck and trailer.


We loaded up my X3 and trailered it to his AWESOME cabin above Durango:


Jeremiah followed us, driving his X3 on the highways for a couple hours - passed several state troopers and county deputies with no issues, so that was a HUGE plus.

We spent the following day butchering up my car trying to isolate the problem by swapping parts from machine to machine - NO LUCK at all there. Had a mobile mechanic too, but all he could figure was it was a bad wire somewhere.


That was Sunday and the local Can Am dealer in Durango wouldn’t be open until Tuesday; and our new friend and rescuer says that dealer kind of sucks anyway.

SO, I called Nick Bruce at Adrenaline Motorsports in Casa Grande, AZ - he said he’d have his guys do whatever we needed IMMEDIATELY if we were there when they opened first thing In the morning.

We loaded up and drove ALL NIGHT LONG to Adrenaline - they jumped on it and said they had it figured out by 10 am Monday morning. They said it needed a new rear wiring harness - showed me a wire over the valve cover that had rubbed raw.

It got ordered along with, at my request, new injectors and sensors, JUST in case. Parts are supposed to be coming from Vegas today by noon, so if all goes well, we MAY be on the trailer back to Durango, Colorado tonight or in the morning where my riding partner is patiently waiting.

I’m HOPING to be riding again sometime tomorrow, but a LOT of things have to go right for that to happen.

There’s DEFINITELY some GREAT people getting themselves SELFLESSLY involved in our fun and it IS appreciated!

Weird. A couple of years ago we were on a camping vacation in that same neck of the woods with our new truck.
We blew out an OEM tire on the trail and I plugged it and limped it into that same Cayton Campground.
We had to wait for the Discount Tire to open in Durango so we could buy a new set of BFG A/T.

This is the one thing I LOVE about this sport, for the most part, people in the off road community will try their best to help out a fellow rider in need. pay it forward!!
