ARRGH!@#! Nope, the not-quite-on-song wasn’t the mufflers… Headed home Sunday morning, got about 30km (just got out of the Citylink tunnel), and she went boom in a big way – right-hand inlet valve broke off the stem and totally rooted the piston and head.. (see piston and head)
Looks like I’m stuck in melbourne till we get her rebuilt..
Major props to the bloke who stopped and asked if I needed a hand.. Major anti-props to the *censored* in the little blue honda with ACT plates who decided to try cutting down the emergency lane, and ended up stopping sideways about a foot from me.. (Yes, he’s going to be *really really* sore, if I spot him when I’m back in Canberry….)
