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

The last time I rode my gas bike, I let out the clutch, without thinking while I was coasting around 10-15 mph. it broke 5 spokes in my rear wheel, (drive side, of course), had to ride home with the rear tire slapping on the right side seat stay. Replaced those spokes, trued it up and now the wheel is straighter than when it was new...can't believe it didn't permanently torque that aluminum rim. Yee-Ha! Back on the road again.
