I transported one of the rarest motorcycles in the world today.

A broken down Goldwing.

Nothing serious. Just dropped a couple of cylinders while on the interstate.

It has been dropped off at Niehaus Cycle, in Litchfield, IL.

So here the deal. Make your best guess as what's wrong with it and we'll see who is right.

Here's the facts....2008....35,000 miles....Champion Trike...... Half tank of fuel....Been running on Interstate @ 70 mph for an hour or so.....100 degrees..... No warning lights...... Started up a small hill..... power dropped off................ sounds like it's running on 4 cylinders..........

Score bonus points by guessing how much the repair bill will be............

Winner gets bragging rights............

Ignition situation, coil sounds most likely at the moment.

If under warranty, no charge. Out of warranty, $ 565 bucks.

Car tires! Two of them is twice as bad!

I'm ducking behind a strong barrier to avoid the rotten fruit, arrows, and bullets.
