Well, it looks like this will cause you to win another long distance Rag Trophy! You can use it to polish your HD after the XJ gets you home.

I hope it all works out well for you.

I rebuilt the XJ myself and it survived the record rain in the mid-west last year on the way home without missing a beat so I KNOW it works.


On the shiny side: SLC Harley just called and they found the problem after pulling the rear jug. The intake valve beehive spring is broken so they're looking for a new spring, no word yet on an ETA but they'll let me know. Right on!

I thought you said they said the valve train was fine. The jug doesn't need to come off to fix a valve spring.

Hi Greg,
Thanks for that. My interpretation is they expect to be opening again on Monday. at least the roads that survive the storm.
The winds seem to be moderating already but due to the slow progress this massive storm is dumping huge amounts of rain.

Thinking of John & the staff at Iron Horse. Hope they are all secure and safe and get through the coming storm.

we still have a good window for recovery after Flo' blows through..so I feel many of the dire predictions were exaggerated....as they forecast but they really dont know...
its mostly a media show for their dumb azz ratings..

Told me on phone the scoot has a minor oil leak around front cyl. exhaust at head mount and is a tad low on oil. His plan at this point is come to my place and take it out to Harley here in Junction.

(shaking my head)

People ask why I don't get a Hardley, I say because I like to ride, not wrench and polish. I ride for fun, not to impress.

Glad he got his sludge pump back on the road.

It's good to have such a dealer network when you need it.

Comfort to me = reliability. I would rather have an old wooden rocker that'll stay rockin' than a comfy recliner that'll leave me sitting.
