No smiley face here , Frowny face or Sad face .
So after this weekend and its events I decided to ride today , Shop mates FIL died this weekend too so Imounted my new springer seat , relocated my tag and hit the rd .
Balls out down a 2 ln rd , come up on some slow cars and a passing lane so I layed the hammer down .
What happened next felt like hot knife and torch hitting my leg , yes I had just lost a head gasket . I have seen alot of blown engines but I have never seen a head gasket blow so bad that it hangs out of the motor .
Phucking Chinese gaskets !

Maybe you should refer to such a ride as "gaskets out" as opposed to "balls out".

I'm debating between another 1911( rock island or ruger), a gp100, or a sig 226/229 in 357 sig...
Cheapest would be the gp, and i have no revolver yet.

HAAAAAHAHA
HAHAHhaha............ha

Very funny gello ......
I pulled it down and it blew out a good 2.5 in section . I thought it was a exhaust leak but it was random and started yesterday , when I pulled out today It felt like it was way down on power and it still smoked my buddy on his roadstar 1800.
I needed to pull the heads back off anyway , I have some pinging so Imma run some thicker copper or MLS gaskets to kill some compression .

Just money , let me bleed a bit more
