KingCast Triumph Sprint 955i daily bike check maintenance tip: Watch for grasshoppers!
I have never encountered this quasi-phenomenon amongst any of my other motorcycles but they love Bessie, a 2002 Triumph Sprint ST. Four times this season I come out to find them chillin... I have no idea why grasshoppers love this bike so much but they are there all the time and it has never happened with any other bike I've owned. Lucky for this guy I was checking my tryes as they are on the way out. Today I could say maybe it was the rainfall (you can see the front disc has rust patina) but that doesn't explain all the other ones. Kind of fun, movie later.
