a very #%@ ride up at deals gap
It all started out great, got on the road with the RS along with my friend on his GSXR1000 headed to Deals Gap.
Once arrived we went for lunch up there to afterwards slay the dragon like they say.
the first curves were great except for traffic then all of the sudden I started hearing a rattle during accelleration, in deep curves the oil light came on on turned back off. as I was looking to make a safe stop (which is hard due to few flat spots to park and not to be hit by passing traffic) then sudden no more throttle... that was it for me... My friend allready gone (passed cars and other bikes as his life was being threatened).
I parked the bike on the side of the road to wait for my friend to come back, about 25 minutes I send him shopping for oil (I checked and there was no oil at all in the reservoir glass) when he came back I poured the oil into the reservoir tried to crank it but it didn't want to give a kick, it tried to crank but then there was nothing...
God, tried to call a tow truck but no luck (easter monday) so the only solution was to ride on the back of a GsXR (what a pain) for another 2.5 HRS
At this time there's a tow truck on the way to pick it up and bring it to the dealer... don't know what i am about to face cost wise on the bike.
I do my own stunts
