Are you working on the bike while all the crazy bike week stuff is going on in Myrtle Beach? A lot of them are heading down here to see Charleston, and we've heard about some fatalities already. Stay safe up there.
If you did not flip the gas cap assembly with all the screws, then why did you cut the neck out? I can't see any other way to not turn the ring, cap, screws to have the lock cover open and flip up towards the dash rather than the seat. Splain to me reeky.
It's crazy hear this week! 4 deaths already, over 70 accidents and the biggest arrival has just started, and my wife has been run off the road once.
I told her to stay home and don't ride your bike until this is over. Yes, I'm doing my 24k and annual service as much as I can while this bike week is here.
Of all the fatalities so far, none were wearing helmets! Sad.
This is really sad. One of the fatalities was a biker backing his bike out of a trailer and was hit by another rider who crashed a red light. Just think, that poor guy never even got to ride. Plus his families heartache. Very sad.
My recommendation, is to stay away. This rally has gotten to big, and to dangerous.
I have a very good friend that is a paramedic and works this whole MB Bike week rally every year, and he told me last year of all the accidents that were answered to by paramedics groups, over 70% were people on rental bikes! You can rent a custom chopper, trike, Boss Hoss ( V-8 Motor), harley or what ever you want. It's a big business.
I refuse to ride with all these inexperienced riders. I know we all talk about how cagers don't know we are visible and many times it's there fault, but I have seen to many idiots on bikes here for my liking.
