Yesterday I was on a ride with a couple friends when at the end of our trip my coolant reservoir blew a hole in its side and shot coolant right on my leg. We were in Memphis and live in NE Arkansas two hour away. I was able to pull it off and patch it with electrical tape and had to pour water in the reservior a couple times but made it back home without it overheating again. My bike is a '86 model so its time to replace it anyways. I still like the bike but when I got it last year it had 18 years of non use and abuse but thats changing now.
