Was out for a lovely spirited ride over the Natchez Trace near Nashville and getting toward the tail end of it my back end slid out through a turn at a stop light. At the next light another rider pulled up alongside and mentioned that my bike was smoking. So I pulled in to a nearby parking lot and sure enough, oil all over the engine, swingarm and rear tire. And my boots, pantlegs, dripping from the lower fairing, everywhere. Just had the oil changed a few weeks back at a local dealership and have ridden it since then with no problems and no signs of a leak so not sure what brought this on. Also no power loss, no knocking nothing that would immediately scream head gasket. As luck would have it I was only a couple miles from my office where I keep a couple of cargo trailers so the other ride gave me his pillion seat over there where I had my wife bring the SUV so we could hook up a trailer and haul the bike home. Upon closer inspection the engine is completed cover top to bottom and there is nothing left in the sight glass so I I can't clearly tell where the leak originated. As much oil was on the rear tire I am lucky that I didn't have any problems on the ride. I'm just going to haul the bike straight back to the shop that worked on it and let them clean it and find the leak. Oh well weather is turning cold soon but I was hoping to get a few more rides in.
