Oh you rock Mark! TY

Been cold here and started my daily rider all sweet and Blackenstein like" Pulled rip cord slowly 8 or 12 times softly and she lit right off. Stalled so I yankenked hard and of course cursed. Recoil spring broke. I took it apart, bent it. It promptly broke. So I used a blow torch and bent it with love. Perfect but now my pull cord was a bit limp so put a knot in a bit tighter. Still hangs like a limp bisket.
Go for a ride. Goes well.
Throttle return spring fails and I ride past my house at 3/4 throttle screaming "Ello" thinking it funny and unable to slow down. They waved as I passed. I waved back and aimed for a snow bank.

Just another day.
worst apocalypse ever
