Well I gritted my teeth and got on with the wash. Then I took it for a spin to dry it. When out on nice dry roads I then decided to also take out the hibernating Dominator and give it a run. The two bikes are almost thirty years apart. If not branded, would You know they were from the same manufacturer ?Well for a start I'm just now going to have to wash it because its very dirty after my last spin. After that if all goes to plan I will take it for a spin........
The bolt was fine (although replaced) - that shiny mess in the bolt should have been left within the engine blockLooks like the threads are intact on the bolt unless I'm mistaken. Looks like the threads are filled with aluminum....was it over torqued?
I have enjoyed many a trip along OH Rt. 7, Rt 124 and WV Rt 2. The Ohio River Valley is a great ride.Had a great ride today, 150+ miles round trip. Went with DavidC83 from town up to a nice little restaurant for lunch. It overlooks a nice bend in the Ohio River, then headed back the long way. Left the house at 9:30 AM, returned at 4PM.
