I took my DB killer out last night and it ran like crap, so I adjusted some throttle body screws. I forget which ones, but they had some paint on them. Now it won't run at all. What should I do? clown

I love it when the guys pauses and then asks "Three and a half years?!?!".

I've seen this thing up close when they were in Oz.
A couple of poms riding around the world who in spite of the bike seemed quite sane.
It is quite an extraordinary machine with some innovative engineering solutions, many of which in my opinion are #%@king nuts.
Having said that they have done a lot of miles on this monster and seem to get around ok as long as it doesn't fall over, it weighs about as much as 1 and half Triumph Rocket 3's with all of their gear on board.
Ugly as a hat full of arseoles though and the ultimate function over form.

Which is why they were nearly killed on it and expected everyone they met to pull thier arses out of the fire.

Now there's someone who doesn't belong anywhere near a bike.
FFS if you're that worried about the weather take the fricking car,
They probably think they look really cool and eccentric,

Saw that contraption (bike?) at Moto-I when the passed through.

They didn't complete the journey and called it quits in Mexico due to family illness amoung other things.

Probably would have worked out better on a Quota, Stelvio, or Ural with less stuff and cheap hostels/hotels...

It weighed about twice the GVM for a Tonti before they got on it and then they were amazed when the rear wheel collapsed and nearly killed them in Victoria! Apart from bolting all that shit to it virtually no real preparation was done before they left England and then they seemed to expect free help and to be worshipped as amazing wherever they went. Truly a very odd couple!
