    Hhhhhmmmmm


    Shit load of tires

    Lots of oil changes....

    Couple brake pad replacements. 3 If my memory serves me, most done before thier time


    One final drive big bearing replacement at 50K...done in a parking lot in Colorado.

    Two clutch Slaves... one at 45k the second at 100K

    New Speigler brake lines and clutch line this past fall.


    I trust it to ride anywhere, anytime, any distance:deal

    I seem to always pack extra heavy, on this bike.

    Like for a family of eight:eek1


    It has proven to be reliable.

    I should change the throttle cables this winter.
    I should lube the splines this winter.

    But most likely I won't....

    One from back this summer during a cross country trip, took a detour in Wyoming for a few hours here. Having been my first trip off the East Coast in my life, I was blown away by all the open space.

    I'll slow down and take some better pics this May when I head up to Newfoundland.

    Keep breaking the clear plastic lens on the lights, think I'm going to replace them this winter with something a little more durable.

    Replaced the stick coils today after a couple months of hard starting, rough idle and and surging. Runs like a dream now. 66,000 miles on the originals is a pretty good run I think
