Hey, I didn't die I just traded my vintage bike for a modern fuel injected 108 HP Italian.
You'll find me on tour with Jason Aldean. That's really what prompted this; he sold a million tickets last year and this year will be bigger, cutting into wrench/riding time. So I get to choose: wrench or ride? I choose to ride this year as I only managed to put 500 miles on the TR6 last year. With my Hinckley and the Duc I'll be able to come in from the road put in a 20 minute pre-ride check and go. And it's a lot more likely I won't be stopping to hunt for self ejecting parts ;-)
In retrospect I should have chosen my vintage bike more carefully. A second year unit bike just requires much more input than my situation allows; I'd have been much better off with a sorted out 70s model.
