Motorcycle Adjacent Podcast: Episode 8 – I Bought Another Motorcycle

Hey Everyone, in the Motorcycle Adjacent Podcast: Episode 8, we’re going to discuss an update on my 2022 Yamaha MT-09 SP Problems, Everything being on Back-Order, A Group Ride to a small Australian Bakery, and my brand new Motorcycle!

Yamaha MT-09 SP Update

As you probably know by now, I’ve been dealing with issues. I damaged my Rear Brake Caliper Assembly while doing a Tire Change and have been in OEM replacement part purgatory. I struck out on getting a new replacement part but was able to find a new caliper assembly on eBay.

After a couple of weeks of waiting, the part has finally arrived! On Friday, Martin Moto came to my house and picked up my MT-09 to take to the dealership for service. I’ll have the bike back with any luck and be riding again shortly.

Everything Is On Back-Order

While skimming through Instagram, I came across a post from The 333 MotovlogOpens in a new tab. where he mentioned that he was also waiting on a back-ordered part for his Teneree 700. I also caught a passing comment from ChopperFettOpens in a new tab. that he was waiting on a part for his 900RS from Kawasaki. Lastly, TrekkieMotoOpens in a new tab. has been waiting for weeks on a replacement passenger foot peg for his Triumph Speed Twin.

To add insult to injury – it isn’t just motorcycle manufacturers struggling to ship products. I recently placed an order through MotoSportOpens in a new tab. for a Racing Mat for my new bike and was informed that it was also back-ordered with no scheduled fulfillment date.

A Group Ride for Sausage Rolls

Over the weekend, three guys from the WaltInPA Discord ServerOpens in a new tab. arranged to get together and do a little riding. We planned to meet at the Classic Auto Mall and then ride to Griesemer’s Mill Covered Bridge. From there we would ride to Royersford to visit True Blue Bakery – a shop specializing in Australian Baked Goods. After that, we would see how much time we had left and fill it with riding to random places headed back home.
