    Thanks, Map. I feel better now (mostly because I went and forgot to check that nut like I meant to).

    HAH HAAAAH! Procrastination works!!!

    IT may not fix itself Mapbike, But it WILL probably remind you that it needs fixing at the worst possible time, like when yer 10 miles from your tools.:-||

    EFFing H3LL! You know what I did just tonight? I'm taking the bike out for a nice ride, beautiful night, all that. Trying to get the ordinarily-reliable ol' girl started. I've hit the switch, primed the carb, pulled out the choke only 1/4 the way, because it's not THAT cool out. The bike's having none of it. No go.
    Then I look down at the ----er ---ing petcock. All the years, I should know by now. And we were just talking about these things. So anyway, I opened the petcock. And she fired right up, of course. I must be getting senile. Yeah, that's it.
