Actually my neighbor who works for a Yamaha dealership was given this bike to enjoy for a week while a friend of his was away. I heard him fire it up this morning and the starter is grinding bad. He lives up on a hill with a steep driveway and when he got to the bottom, the bike died. He came over and asked if he could stash it on my FLAT :D driveway for the day. He said the ecu was going crazy and the bike is now dead. Of course I had to jab him and point to my Kaw and Honda in the garage that are running today. This is a beautiful bike and I guess the owner owns a performance shop of some kind. The engine has been completely tweaked out, heads, pistons etc. Supposed to be very fast...................when it runs. ;) :D

Dang, that is a nice looking bike. You say it's a Yamaha?

Maybe they'll forget to come pick it up. ;)

No this is a Harley Davidson and that played into the jokes about them breaking down. Never thought I would have one break down in MY driveway. :D I've been out to drool over it twice now, maybe that is not such a good idea!! :eek:

Ya one of my South American riding buddies just got a new Screamin Eagle he has 3k miles on it, we go for a 2 hour ride last Sunday stop for a coke and it's got oil pouring out of the motor. He stays there and calls another bud to come pick him up with a trailer , it's a beautiful bike and now it will be in the shop for 3 weeks lookin good...... Nothin like a 30k Motorcycle gathering dust......
