Fundamentally Loathsome

I got good news about the problem with my ATV today. The service manager from the dealer called and said that, this time, the leaking oil seal was caused when they put everything back together while fixing it in the first place. Apparently the act of inserting the driveshaft into the differential ended up cutting the new oil seal. It’s only good news in that there’s nothing major wrong with my machine, but it doesn’t speak well for the work performed at the dealer. At least they figured out the problem and fessed up to it.
I probably won’t get the ATV back until Friday or Saturday, though chances are I won’t be going for a ride this weekend. There’s a chance of rain and snow Saturday and Sunday, and I’m not sure I’m up for foul weather riding. I can stand the cold, but not while I’m wet.
