Update: sanDRina is alive!

sanDRina rides once again!
I made it back to Kibondo. Bus journeys were a bit rough but I passed the time by listening to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance on audiobook to get in the mood ;) Good tips in there, such as knowing that all bike issues can be traced to rational, objective causes and not voodoo magic, although electrical issues seems like that :p And then it goes deep into philosophy, with a long treatise on 'quality.'
sanDRina was patiently waiting for me just like I left her, along with my other gear. I installed the new parts and she fired right up, sounding good. Went for some extensive test rides today and so far sounds like the issue has been solved, but I can't say for sure until I cover at least a 100 kms and get to the next town.
The ride continues :D Heading south...
