|L2fish||Its the old Davco company. Siemens bought them some years ago.|

So, found out this morning that my throttle cable is actually broke, not just out of the throttle sleeve... So... Here she sits at the house until I can get a new cable to replace it... Be several more weeks before that is a possibility...
L2fish: Yeah, Thomasville. Where is the plant? I always know people looking for jobs... Maybe I can send them that way.

|ravdaveed||I finally got her home last night. My wife and I had some friends and their kids over for dinner and in the middle of the conversation found out they have a trailer. So, I got him to go with me to get the bike with the trailer, helped a lot. Now I know who to call for future incidents... Now I just have to get the stripped screws out and then some new screws to replace them...|

|wib714||if you own a bike, own a truck! I couldnt live without my truck. hauled the bike a few times, only once by choice. haul my boat quite a bit but a car could do that. a trailer is much easier to get a dead bike into and they do make a folding trailer if you do not have much room, sears use to carry them!|

I have had a truck for about 20 years now, and can`t imagine how I ever managed without one for so many years before that. I am thinking that when I finally get back on two wheels next season, that I am going to have to prepare my truck for someone to come rescue me in an emergency.
It is a toss up whether to take the topper shell off the truck for the summer, and use a ramp and tiedowns in the box, or get a small bike trailer that can be quickly hooked up when needed. I have seen some that don`t take up much storage space in a garage when they are stood up on the tailgate.
ravdaveed, a trailer might be something your m/c members could buy together and split the cost for self rescue.
