That's pretty sad. I won't lend my phone but I will make phone calls for vehicle breakdowns or send help. Glad you weren't hurt.

Thanks for your concern, happycheapskate.

Two female joggers were together. I guess they were paranoid.

I had a mean feeling that things would be very ugly if I swerved quickly on a wet road, so I ran over it.

Ironically, the object I ran over looked like a bicycle chain.

Maybe their momma told them not to talk to motorcycle outlaws. :-)

Not everybody is helpful. Maybe they were cagers taking a day off.

@anim8r nice find on the screens, can't beat that price, should look sharp too

5-7, you're having the worst luck lately, sux man, it'll get better eventually. Never hurts to have $0.50 for a payphone in your pocket(their .50 up here anyway)...
Lol Happyman! When do cagers take a day off?
If I happened along when you were in peril and in a rush, I'd have sold you my chain for a smile and a future beer, and pedaled my skinny arse home. People are too uptight nowadays, jeesh.

Best of luck!

Not for nothing 5-7, your one of the great folks here. I wish we lived closer and ya could call me 'cause I would dang sure have tried to help out Buddy. (If a shop owner/neighbor would help out and let ya call)

Scary times and folks get scared and worried. LOL, and cheap.

Just don't stop being a good guy. Your one of the great ones,

LOL, it was a sense of accomplishment to pedal to work. I was just glad I could secure the bike and get that foster kid to his appointment with 20 minutes to spare.

Not too many payphones around the entire island, ever since half the population of 900,000 people here own a cellphone. People LOVE!!! their cellphones!

Always fun for me to participate in a global forum!
An island guy in the rain, the candidate from the nutmeg state, Texans, desert racers, and I'm always amazed at the opposite weather down under!
...it could be a cool one, like ours was here in sunny Kalifornia.
lol
and gosh, if I were from one of the northern states I'd just HAVE to be a snowbird!
just not tuff enuff for that anymore. :-)

the search is on for my wallyworld bicycle speedometer, since my kid's 29mph run... I bought it quite a while back and never had the courage to face up to the shabby news all the time. ;-) Hope I can find it before too much longer.

Been hoping to find some fenders someone has discarded... no luck, so far.

I rode mine around the Christmas lights in the rich area (motor off). Fun times. I have ridden the grubee bike with bicycle clubs before. Most don't like it (roadies), but some people (the more-the-merrier crowd) don't mind it as a pace bike or repair-wagon. :-) The tanaka bike is better recieved because it pedals like a normal bike with the motor off, and still useful for the same purposes as ride scout or repair guy.

I'm interested in lowering the sound volume or frequency, if anybody knows how, without damaging the engine (Tanaka 33 friction drive). I am thinking of trying a few feet of heater hose or silicone hose. If it doesn't quiet it, maybe it will change the sound. I've seen a lot of bikes running rubber hoses on the ends of happytime mufflers. Please send links if you know of anything.
