    stupid bike

    well...my priller is being punished... she iscovered in oil... and i am leaving her that way for a few days as punishment.

    i was cruising up 95 north today, when my peg suddenly felt real weird, i thought it was loose or something.. i didn't understand that cause i went through and tightened everything on it last week, so i aimed to get off 95 real quick to find out what was wrong...
    i found out before i got off 95... all the sudden the oil light came on... D'OH!!!!!!
    so i cut the engine and let it coast off the road... wouldn't ya know it, the fucking oil return line came off and had apparently been spewing oil all over the rear of the bike and now it was burning off the exhaust pipe and smokin up a storm... MOTHER FUCKER!!!! my whole foot was soaked.. no wonder the peg felt funny.
    so christina's boss came and picked me up with his trailer and we went back to his shop and put it back together, filled it with oil and i was off. but the fucking tire is slick as shit. i spent an hour trying to get it off with brake cleaner, but it still real slippery, i almost high sided on the way home afterwards as a result.

    i guess i am lucky i had to stop it on 95 cause i dont know i woulda made it around the off ramp if i didn't know my tire was "pre"slicked.

    i came home and romped on the fifty for a while to get my frustrations out and i am soooo glad christina works where she does... it was reallly cool for her boss to help me out.

    Mad props to Lenny and Cleaves Company.


    is my tire fucked? or is there something else i can do to get some traction back.

    It depends on how badly doused it was (if you rode the bike I am assuming it isn't a honey dipped!). I would have issues with using brake cleaner. Although it's a great degreaser, brake cleaner is too harsh and would likely fuck with the makeup of the rubber. I would probably use a mild dishwashing liquid with a degreaser. Scrub with a tough bristled brush and use a ton of water to clean the tire of the liquid. Wait til it dries and wipe it down with a clean terry cloth towel and inspect. I've seen guys do a smoke show to get any oils off but even though you can rock the bike you still can't rock it enough to get the outer edges. If peace of mind is what you after get a new bun.

    I resemble that remark...

    I wouldn't ride on that tire again... For around 150 bucks you can have your piece of mind back.... If you need some race takeoffs I think Scotty is selling some, or I may have a set that is still good if you are hurting for the green... But only cause you're a fellow Priller rider....
