I let a friend take my bike on a 2k + tour.
First off, never again.... every day was a call with drama and a problem with the bike when there was no issues when he got the keys...
Talking to him sounded more like the bike was on a track session rather than a borrowed friends tour...
It varied from gears jumping to brake fade, to no tread on tires to rear drive leak (which is this post)
My 2nd gear jumps if you are wacking the hell out of the throttle. It has for over 30k now, a bent dong bone I'm guessing. If you are riding sane, there is no issue.
Brake fade... I did that once at SFO around 2008 or so with not so sane street riding and cooked the front to the point of boiling... Ha said he had fade on the REAR "backing it in" REALLY?!!
Tires, had 1750 miles on them...., but I guess when you tell me you are doing 120 in 95 degree heat and still getting passed, the rubber goes quick.
...there is a grease type coating along the pumpkin side from the kick stand back and the inside of the rear wheel.
Is there any place that could have a leak other than the pumkin of oil?
Biff Tannen: "I can't believe you'd loan me your car without telling me it had a blind spot."
George McFly: "Blind Spot?"
Biff: "I could've been killed."
George: "Now... Now, Biff, I never noticed that, uh, the car had any blind spot before when I would drive it."
Biff: "Well, what are you blind, McFly? It's there. How else do you explain that wreck out there?"
George: "Now, Biff, um, can I... can I assume that your, uh, insurance is gonna pay for the damage?"
Biff: "My insurance? It's your car. Your insurance should pay for it. I wanna know who's gonna pay for this. I spilled beer all over when that car smashed into me. Who's gonna pay my cleaning bill?"
