Default Leaking Head Gasket

Not going to lie, the closest I get to washing my bike is riding in the rain. After a long ride one of my buddies was checking out the Judge and noticed the head gasket leaking oil from the front cylinder. A little bit of oil running back on the heat fins. Cleaned it off and hammered about 100 miles, more oil seeping from the head gasket across the fins. Swung by the dealer, Tech took some pics to send to Ma Vic. He's pretty sure I've got a porous head and thinks they'll send a new one by mid summer. Good thing for the 5yr warranty.
Maybe this is her way of asking for more baths.

Good thinking. It not only keeps your bike looking it's best, but gives you valuable "hands on time" to go over it...let's you head off any potential future problems.
