I rode my motorbike to the convenience store to find some cranberry sauce. They didn't have any but I enjoyed taking a spin.

Got sent to pick up coffee and butter. Awesome early morning ride. Very little traffic and the few cars that were out were exceedingly polite. (until later on the highway in my car, snork) Got home as Carol's family arrived. Dressed in full winter gear and stinking of gas.

They are calling for snow so late afternoon after every one left, I went out to fire up the snow thrower. I got it second hand for Carol's birthday last yr. I wasn't always here in the mornings to shovel and I move out a lot. (She calls me her favorite flight risk) Any way, it never ran well. Guy I bought it from is a motor head and he said he had tuned it up. He lied. Last yr I did not know how to fix it. This yr, took about 15 mins to get it roaring and working like brand new. Learned from you guys. Just sayin' thanks.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Our very best to you and yours

Sometimes a smoke will last longer than a girl, bikes are forever... Unless they strand you, then they die a brutal death, if that happens, put on YouTube plz

I noticed something similar in Cleveland, in so far as even licensed mechanics tend to do that - almost unknowingly. They spend so much time fixing other people's rides that they tend to woefully neglect their own hoopties. I bought my old Puch Magnum from a mechanic who'd bought it, for his son I think. He said it just needed gas & oil and then it should run. Apparently he also needed a sucker like me to buy it. So I learned all I could about the moped online. I had 'er roaring in no time (as much as an overly large moped CAN roar anyway. ).
