Did some maintenance on the #gl1000 last night. During the trip to NY the bike developed a "clunk" in the driveline that had me worried my driveshaft U-joint was failing again. Turned out that the driveshaft coupling's grease had washed out or worn off and the now dry joint developed some bad wear causing extra play. From now on that joint gets packed with grease correctly.
A photo from this weekend's @barbermotorpark Historics event is sadly appropriate for today to remember Sir Roger Moore and "The Spy Who Loved Me's" Lotus Esprit submarine. Wet Nellie, as the submarine was named, was a real custom submarine designed to look like a Lotus Esprit. It's currently owned by Elon Musk. #rogermoore#barbarabach#007#lotusesprit
