Rider is correct I don't get up that early unless work is has me out of town... so no, it wasn't me.

About 7:20something this morning on Spillway. Saw a black '09 KLR headed West across Spillway. Looked like it had the decals removed. Got caught at a light and could not catch up to get a better look.

Could not catch him due to the Spillway Self Appointed Lane Patrol agents who feel it is there job to force all traffic behind them to drive 5 MPH below the speed limit. Sometimes they run in pairs so they can block all forward progress on a road...

Thats when you "shoot the gap" this sounds like the guy that works at St. Dominic's, he used to be on here and went by NormalGuy I think.

I'm not sure I remember exactly what he told me last time we talked about it. I THINK he said the motor was terminal and he was looking for a different one, but I could be wrong. He sure is tough on bikes!

Figured it must have been bad since there wasn't any progress reports after tear down. Pity, it was a good bike.

It should be rebuildable. I just need to buy a a $480 gasket kit from England and about $500 in other parts to freshen her up while its apart. It's never easy to get the time and the money to cooperate at the same time. I think in the coming weeks some progress should be made.


ps I miss that bike something bad.

They are great bikes, but Triumph is very "proud" of their parts and service. Hope you get it running soon.
