Just When I Thought It Was Safe

Man, I hate it when I find a puddle under my bike in the morning.

Especially when it's an unexpected and, frankly, unwelcome puddle of oil about six inches wide.

I guess I was due for a run of poor mechanical luck. First a coolant leak on the Triumph (fixed), then a dead battery in the Vespa ET4 (fixed), and now an oil leak on the Triumph.


Perhaps the Triumph is just too excited for Moto-mas.

Here's hoping it turns out not to be a big deal!

I'm also hoping for your sake, that it will be an easy fix too. Depends where it is coming from, perhaps the shifter seal ?

I remember we used to play jokes in the car club during the summer. At a show and shine all the cars would be parked on display and we would take some antifreeze coolant and drip some underneath someone's radiator and just wait for them to notice . . . I know, cruel

is ok Bobsckoot, we do the same with Jap bikes. We sprinkle rice under their bikes and wait for them to hunt for the leak :)

I was going to advise you not to blow a gasket over it, but it looks like you already did!

Take care and here's hoping it's minor.
