Default Funny Triumph-oil leak story

I was in the post office on the Honda chair, returning some Frog Legs front suspension for wheel chairs that didn't fit. The Frog Legs people are great, and said they'd modify them for free, and ship 'em back free too. So anway, I'm in this endless line when some bearded wog holding a replica WWI german helmet standing behind me says "your chair's is leaking oil"...at which point I replied "It thinks it's a Triumph..."

Little did I know he was riding a rat sixty something Bonneville with 12 over forks, and struts on the back. Underneath it was a pool of 60 weight about the size of a dinner plate.

As I rode by I saw him putting on his spiked Kaiser replica made of shiny plastic, and pionted to the every increasing pool of oil forming under his rat turnip. He then flipped me the bird. High praise in my book when you get the finger from idiots.

Sometimes the Gods smile on me, sometimes they don't. Made my day though....

Matt,
That, by far, is the funniest thing I have read this week. The visual is great, but I'd love to have seen pics of this.

Your chair was made in England?

You know, that's why the Brits have never been a success in the computer industry. They couldn't figure out how to make a computer leak oil.



I'm afraid to ask about the chairs electrics...

Great story Matt. You'd think he'd have been proud of his "heritage!"

After over 15 years of dealing with minor to really annoying oil leaks on my 77 Low Rider, I finally got my "modern Japanese motorcycle." The dealer over-tightened the chain when they prepped it, and the sprocket seal started leaking within a week of getting the bike.

Its.......A FACT!

The little plastic spiky lid should have been a clue...

Did you know that at one time EVERY army on Earth used the "picklegrubber" helmet with the spike on it? Even the good old USA used it in the 1880's. Not made from plastic however...

Well it's a good idea in close combat, you can whack some poor SOB upside the head and clean his ears out
