Here in northern New Jersey we got about 36 inches of snow over the past two weeks. But today it got to 50-degrees F., and I have been dying to get the bike out (I was getting out about once a week before January). So I got it out today (thank goodness for trickle chargers), and not wanting to cross over any streets with melting snow laced with salt (for melting the ice)... I couldn't get out of my neighborhood! Very frustrating fifteen minute ride. Didn't even get it out of 2nd gear. But... a day on the bike beats all. :)

Went to use the T120 for the first time since November last year, loud knocking noise when it started up which I thought would go away after a few minutes , didn't seem to so only went to my village and back. Enjoyed the ride but a niggling thought all the time "is there a problem with the engine?"
After a few minutes letting things settle and then started up again in front of the garage and it sounded better, so was it just where the oil had drained out of the top? not sure will try another day.

Distance ridden 5.3 kms only - agh :cry:

Has anyone else suffered this problem?
