Was enjoying myself on a glorious PSB ride, when my clutch cable decided to snap. Anyone out there able to help me out with a trailer tonight and if not tonight, early morning? I have a tow bar.

My house mate is going to pick me up and take back home to karrinyup, I need to sort out getting the bike back home is all.

The bike is at THe Avenue (behind UWA) near Princess Road.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Or bump start it, you can always kick it into neutral at lights etc, lights change, roll it forward and engage gear again.
Takes a wee bit of practise but you'll get the hang of it.

And if that doesnt work start in N and run down the street fast enough to force first without stalling

Hey Caviar I saw you pulled over but you didn't make any sign that you had a problem and needed help so I just carried on. Sorry!!!
Glad you got sorted last night.
Definitely ppl should learn how to ride and drive "clutchless" so they can at least get home/to a servo etc. I once drove a car right across a city (Dublin) clutchless, wasn't hard at all.

You didn't mention it was an auto :)
