NO SHOW








Rolling the bikes out of the workshop at 04.00 and its raining and blowing a storm , Despite this we were looking forward to the 500 km run down to The Castle Run in Denmark. 
Hitting the road we soon realised this is going to be an adventure as the winds picked up big time , they were so strong on the coastal roads that they were physically floating our bikes sideways , I've had aquaplaning before , but floating sideways while travelling at 110 kph is Fucking scary … then just outside Falkenberg a 100 km from home i felt my leg getting warm , which was strange as we were freezing driving through Rain and gale force winds , i looked down and saw oil pumping out of my Knuck , like blood from a gunshot wound ,, fuck , we pulled over and checked the engine expecting a crack in the block or something , i couldn't  find anything major and checked the rocker seals , bingo this is where the oil was gushing out , bad news but not serious bad news its fixable, and as long as the oil is coming out of the heads its getting oil enough to limp back home. so we turned defeated back to Gothenburg. our thoughts are with you James and we really wish we were there to enjoy the first Castle Run……………………...

I know how you feel, exact same thing happened to me in Florida a coupla years ago on my 41EL (my avatar), blew the gasket on the front exhaust tin, quite a mess. New motor but no damage. Good luck with your repair.
