Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Murphy's Law would dictate that, at the far end of my evening ride - not nearby home but at the other end, the bulb in my headlight would burn out. My younger self would have been left cursing the darkness all the way home.
But HO! Murphy is defeated! The older, wiser me keeps a spare bulb in my trunk and carries a mini-flashlight on his keychain. Without the need to utter a single curse word, I merely open my trunk which contains tools & spares of all necessary kinds. In somewhere under five minutes I have light. "Be prepared" was my motto in the Scouts (whether I liked it or not) and I admit: it's finally sinking in how well that works for me.

"There is nothing wrong with wanting a motorbike that is an extension of your personal taste and fashion sense; if you must ride somewhere, I say do it with style!"
