The bike made the trip into Normandy, but after riding around for 300 miles the clutch failed (started to burn out), we had 9 GMC trucks with us and so it came home in the back of a truck.
Easy fix, I had to make a felt seal for behind the clutch, now the primary drive chain case is not leaking all seams ok.
