Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

Well I didn't have time to test fit the tank today, but I did have time for a short ride.
First time with the speedo working again. It said I got up to 37mph. (down hill)
Bike didn't seem to like me today though. It is moody.
I know it ran better, smoother, higher revs the last time I rode it. I will figure out why later.
It tried to kill me today though... Just after I slowed back down from 37 mph, I pulled over to the side of the road to admire a bi-plane flying by at low altitude and killed the engine so I could hear it. A Leander Police officer slowed down to check me out as he went by, then kept on going, which is great.
When I started her back up and went around the corner, I got this wierd feeling that something wasn't right. I pulled back over and looked down at my front fork. One of the wheel nuts was gone, and the other was loose! I mush have had an absent minded moment when I put the wheel back on Thursday night!
Could have been very bad at 37mph if the front wheel had gone off!
Oh well, all's well that ends wheel!
