A short lived Joy!

ETV1000 CapoNord (all years) - www.apriliaforum.com
Took my Capo to get an MOT yesterday, its been off the road since May as i have been soo busy ive not had time to ride at all

It was a REAL pleasure to ride!

Such a fantastic bike, handles so well, i was carving up the road over the mountains, leaning her right over and the needle pointing at 2pm on occasions.

That joy didnt last long though as i got to the Bike shop (bout 20 or so miles over the hills) and there was oil dripping all over the floor..

The rear tyre was covered OMG i nearly shit myself tidy!

They refused to test as it was beyond dangerous..

I then had to ride back with the cooler getting worse as i went..

I wedged a big rag under the cooler but after 5 miles that was absolutely full and dripping too, burning off on the exhaust and coating the rear tyre.

That was one of the worse rides ive had.. i rode in the middle where all the crap gets accumulated so it would adhere to the oil a bit (and not soil the cleaner road)

BUMMER!!

Short lived Capo joy

Now to find a replacement cooler...

Anyone know of anyone breaking a Capo? i'm not in a position to spend out 300 quid on a new one at the moment

Cheers
