Sorry Rat...
« on: October 19, 2013, 06:38:22 pm »
So me and Kandy head out for a little ride today. But, the X wasn't acting just exactly right. I thought some seafoam and some plugs may be in order. We rode about 10-12 miles and stopped to see a friend. When we got back on the bike I noticed some grass sticking out from under the gas tank. So upon further inspection you guessed it a nest. We head back home where I pull a few covers. The little rat has been chewing wires and such. We rode to Atlanta a week ago so this has happened in the last few days. I put out 5 poison traps with 4 baits each and considering a cat.  :banghead

I had ridden my wing 3 days before, popped the fuel door and had a big nest already. I had to dig it out to keep it from falling in the gas tank when I removed the cap. If I remember right doesn't moth balls keep them out?

A Goldwing isn't an old mans bike, it's a wise mans bike. Often that wisdom comes with age.
