It'a a bit like measuring fish...likely an exaggeration on my part, but i'll be damned if it didn't seem like a 10 minute slide. 70 was the approx witness account of my entry speed, so yeah...dumbass checking in (and thankfully not checked out). I've taken that curve nearly every day for the last 4+ years on that bike...one small lapse in judgement...damn. Thanks for all the support and well wishes, strangers.
I would suggest only running Ethanol-free fuel, I started running it in my daily commuter Star 950 tour a month ago, I was forced to fill up with an ethanol blend and noticed the difference in about 5 miles.Good write up. Carbon was a little heavy. Possibly cheap fuel, too many short trips or too low rpm for extended periods of time. So when you get it back together, top tier fuel and drive it like you stole it.
