Greetings!
I bought this bike off Craigslist in around August of last year. I felt like I got a pretty good deal, there were some accessories already mounted along with a bunch of extra fluids and the factory service manual.

Then it turned out I had to chase an oil leak for a couple of months, hence the good deal. After resealing joints and replacing gaskets I found that 2 of the crankcase bolts were loose and allowing oil to drip from them and just look like the leak was coming from a side cover. Since then all has been pretty good.

Welcome! Where do you hail from? Should I presume through your handle that you are from Bisbee or down under? Cheers.

It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.

I'm in Tucson now, by way of Bisbee.

We've spent a bit of time in Mexico, at one point we had a house in Banamichi, Sonora but once we moved to Tucson the travel time just got to be unwieldy and so ended up selling it.

Wow. I'm sure you've ridden your share of rough roads and trails. Nice places. Always wanted to see Arizona. Welcome!
