Note to self


After fitting front wheel back into bike, make sure you finish the job by running the engine and activating the the brakes. it's not good to back the bike out of the shed and down a hill to wash it. we both tend to fall over as we do not have any brakes what so ever ( Crash) oh buggar!! #17 no pics sorry too embarrassed!!

Re: Note to self

yeah it was i bit of a laugh forgot to take a (what do they call them ) "selfie" smashed the mirror, the liquid nails should be set by now.. and didn't smash off the foot board so that was a plus, it usually does. to all you professional riders out there note, it is very hard to stop a rolling LT going flat out backwards with no brakes
LOL

AGM is over my LT is Rooted

Well the AGM is over, met tony ( nil time) over at the victory tent what a nice bloke we had a great yak even went for a test ride with him. I road the victory as well as the Indian road master. I had the best fun on the Indian and would love to own one but my crook back said no once Again.
Got within 300 ks of Sydney and my tranny started to make horrible bearing noises i pushed on only to have my new clutch plate let go oil pouring out of every orifice the transmission is rooted anyway we will be back home tomorrow the holiday now turned to shit oh well some times it sucks to be me Lol

Ps bike and trailer will be transported this week some time

Re: Ulysses AGM 2015

Sad way to end the trip mate, but at least you are both safe.
Hope the drive/ride home was good.
Did you get in contact with that guy in Samaria, Vic?

Re: Ulysses AGM 2015

Yeah Chris have been emailing him he wants 600 for it with 78000km on it, a bit much for me. my bike is due to be delivered to me here on the 16th so I will pull it down and probably replace bearings for a lot less, But I think from the way it pulled up with a terrible shudder there may more than just bearings, there is one in the states for a more realistic price from one of our members, the mileage is close to the same but the aussie dollar and freight is a killer.

Re: Ulysses AGM 2015

Great to meet up with you at the AGM, Linton - and I am glad that you enjoyed the test rides!

Very sorry to hear about your transmission, though. I hope that you are able to repair it quickly and relatively cheaply.

Tony
