Re: ADDIction Addicts.. HELP ME
A first for me too. WHat I am guessing is that this thing had aftermarket shocks and they just put back on what came on the bike.
I mean here it was a bolt on the ground, me on the ground... the big girl on the parking lot taking the biggest nap that I HAVE EVER seen.
When I got her up, the suspension was down a bit, but I was able to put the kick stand down.. albeit with the bike being held up... SHe was STRAIGHT up...So I parked her on an incline, walked over and noted the bolt...my friend said it was probably from some other car... I looked at it, said maybe but it wont hurt to haul it and dropped the bolt in the trunk..
I did give the bike a once over, but it did'nt register that something that I had just picked up from a Dealership would be missing a bolt.. she ran fine, but i couldnt lean into the corners like i thought she should.. (this shoulda been a *ding!* moment...
In KanKAkee, Ill., I tried to fill up and there was no way i could put the stand down, so I just held her up and filled the bike up.. Then looked close and noted the shock was resting on the arm..
Its been love ever since tho..
