50 degrees and knee's in the breeze

First ride since Thanksgiving, and it was gooooood.

Until one of my floats stuck and dumped all my gas out the left muffler.


Limped my sorry ass home, parked and cussed at the bike, got in my car to go get lunch, then the water pump in my car blew up.

Not really sure which one to fix first....

So here I am again just wandering around the web.

Well the ride was fun while it lasted anyway, all 6 miles of it.

Yeah, it's been a real bundle of laughs around here today, I'm gonna have to call a cab to drive me around for parts it seems.

I also seem to be carrying a little extra "holiday weight" too still, or my leather jacket shrunk on it's own....

With the economy the way it is, I bet you could hire four guys cheap to carry you around in one of these:

Dang Doug your luck is as bad as mine. My truck is down needing both a starter and a fuel pump. At least I have a car. Get that water pump fixed while the temperatures areup a little.
