As I pulled over, I realized I had forgotten to bring my backpack (with tools and spare chain).

As soon as my wife brought my backpack, I was back on the road shortly. The chain had pulled away @ the link. Perhaps it was where I had repaired it once before, a few weeks ago.
Yeah the first time I dropped the chain I was lucky to get it back in usable condition, there's a lot of heavy truck traffic in the area I lost it in. I have a small kit/bag with most of the tools I need at all times in the carrier bags, wrapped in a few shop rags. There have been times I've had the kit out and considered leaving it in the garage for a quick trip to the store, but I always pack it up and pack it anyway.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
