Grab/Tag

Found the "Ruck" at the intersection of Tabler Station rd and Arden Novil rd



Placed him inside a country store that's been open since 1965. Stop in for a grab and lunch.




Closer


Between Martinsburg and Berkeley Springs on 9

Might have to rescue the ruck tomorrow if no one else does... Won't be my most creative grab/tag but seeing as how its only 3.5 min from my place ...

Oops that might have been another clue

For those who don't know, I'm not actually in mburg its just the closest recognizable "city" for out of staters

Ya'll need to quit putting this poor ducky so far away, gonna make me have to buy a street bike if you keep it up


Grab - Kountry Kwik Stop on 9 and Butts Mill Road. The nice lady almost didn't give up the duck I had already eaten so didn't grab anything to eat, just a gatorade.

In the grass at the base of the post below the C in closed.

Pissed Deals Gap -- Shinko tire and plastic fuel connector fail

No riding until get retire replaced....
Anyone else ever have a tire separate like this... only thing i can think of did long ride slabbing it to North Carolina, TN and up into KY
before fuel connector failed.... some people seem to think E10 in gas contributed to the failure.... thoughts...???




oh JB-weld didn’t work this time.... had to load on son's P.U. to get home
from Hurricane ....


but least didn’t have the issues until after "taming the dragon" with my brother two-hawks

What kid of tire pressure were you running? Bias ply or radial?

When I talked to the shinko tire rep they recommended 40 psi for road use and only use the radial type for the heavier adv bikes. 40 psi is higher than the sidewall recommends but he assured me that was the newer recommendation. Due to my work commute I'm on the slab for at least 20-40 miles one way and I haven't yet had an issue over 8k miles.


Also check to see if warranty covers it. I heard of several people getting warranty replacements after tread blocks tearing.



As far as fuel goes, according to the following website triumph has been compatible since 1994 (scroll all the way down) not sure how reliable the site is -- www.mag-uk.org/en/campaignsdetail/a6973
