I just wonder what "failed" means. That could be the final drive on, say a BMW :D, a problem with the radio on a Goldwing, or (to throw a bone to the trolls :evil) an oil leak on a Harley.

The Warrior is a great bike, I've had mine for 12 years and I can't quite bring myself to actually put it up for sale. It feels like a hot rod to my HD's Cadillac road sofa personality.
