    I'll get those behemoths off of there ASAP.

    You can't deny his exhaust is rather large.

    New bike is leaking oil. Yay. Countershaft seal, I think.

    You are the guy with all of the new bike leaks.

    Trust me, the rest of us slobs really appreciate you stepping up.

    Meh, it's just oil. Be happy it's not beer.

    Glad to be of service! At least this time I have a dealer nearby to fix it. :)

    If it was beer, I'd have something to drink!

    I have had some bad luck with motorcycles. I have owned a grand total of 5 now. All except one of them were purchased brand new. Only two of them have been problem free. :becca

    My ST1100 was a leftover '93 I bought new in June '94. It left me stranded first day I had it - huge mouse nest in the air filter housing caused it to run so rich it fouled the plugs.:huh

    '98 Thunderbird Sport also had a leaky countershaft seal when new, but it was replaced under warranty no problem.

    Just didn't want you to feel lonely :D

    Just put on your rain gear and go for a ride around Pioneers Park. The fresh air, hills and beatle killed pines along with the foggy drizzle in the air you can dream your riding in the high country of CO. With this crappy weather you may have the road to yourself!

    I was out running errands this morning and saw two people riding.
    One was over by 36th/370 and the other over by Offutt. Kudos to anybody who is out riding today as the bank signs all show about 39-41 degrees.

    brrrrrrrr

    Starting to think we skipped over spring/summer and went straight back to fall/winter. This is getting ridiculous.

    My bike is in the shop AGAIN. Hoping to have it back by next weekend and this will be the end of the issues. With the weather the way it is, it's not like I'm missing out on anything. :cry

    The stator (sp?) was way hot and fried the regulator/rectifier and some connections. All those have
    to be replaced. Should be done some time this weekend hopefully, and then should be good to go.

    Glad it was STRONGLY suggested to me I take it in and have it checked for gremlins and I did.
    I was hesitant to do this, but am so glad now I followed through.
