Cool2 Dead...again...80,051 miles

Beautiful day: sunny 72 F. Favorite route Tampa to Jax loaded. Earth, Wind, and Fire grooving on XM.

Lamp light comes on. Plug in nearest parts store to GPS but 1/4 mile later RID shuts down and bike dies. I've seen this before: Link.





So I'm standing in the shade awaiting Roadside. -T-A-C-

Wow, that sucks... Wonder if it's the alternator again? Hope it's fixed and you're back on the road again soon!

Yeah. I'll try harder...



Well embarassing good news: loose ground.


The techs were concerned when I said I disagreed with their diagnosis....there's no way I'm that lucky! That's why I didn't check it- too simple so I figured why get hot and bothered when I KNOW I can't fix it.


Thanks Eurocycles Tampa (Aaron, Tony, and Rich) for working me in for my non-breakdown. May you all be as lucky.


Time to work on that mileage issue.....

Standby Jax. Ich come.

With the exception of the loss of riding time, I would say good news!

Well it's been 3 yrs so maybe he's still gotcha beat.

DB hit 100K miles before he hit the road, and stopped the odometer for good.
