Welcome Jon, A friend of mine did the same thing to his ZRX, he was moving across country and was riding his bike into the U-Haul and the drain plug hit the edge of the truck floor and it ripped the plug right out  :gasp: He replaced the oil pan when he got to Arizona.     Enjoy the new bike !!  CT AAD  COG #7011-A  2003 Concours-Mary Ann  1995 Honda Nighthawk 750 wifes

Welcome Jon!    And at least you didn't bash that oil pan a day before a big planned ride, or the morning of a sunny July weekend, etc.  You still have a long riding season ahead!  Enjoy that new bike.    Mike B / Gig Harbor, WA

Welcome, I'm sure you'll enjoy hanging out with MN/WI folks even if you can't join us on Saturday for Bikes in Bloom.ington.  This might be my last event I can attend for a while as my busier time of the year will begin soon and working every weekend becomes required.  
I liked recreation enough that I took it up as a profession.

The dang things are quiet.  I almost stepped in front of one at a rally.  I could not hear it over the C10s running.  Oh, Welcome!  ----------------------------------  South Central Area Director  Email scad@cog-online.org    <p align="left">My Photos<br

No ride seems long at 140mph. ;) Save yourself some money and get a radar detector.

Welcome Jon!  Enjoy the bike - I'm sure it'll run much better now with oil in it.  ;)
