Well, after 38 years of riding I think I finally caused a little bit of engine damage to a motorcycle. As easy as I am on bikes it's no surprise 77k miles and the Strom went BOOM. More like, clank clank clank...New engine being installed the first of the week. Guess I better start taking it easier



NAAAAAHHHHHH...

Hey Hack- Was that A&J Cycle Salvage in Tinicum Township?

If so, I'd like to check that place out (and Revzilla's showroom) some time in the future.

Maybe BH could lead the procession.

And I can attest; that was truly an unusual noise emanating from the Strom as she died.

That's the place. Not worth going to unless you need sportbike parts.
