We had club member arrive at a BMW rally, dismount his bike right at registration, and start yelling "I need a mechanic, I need a mechanic!" He got everyone's attention, because he was frantic about how poorly his bike had been running for the last 200 some miles. He felt something was terribly wrong and needed help,...NOW!
Someone, not a mechanic, walked up to his bike, gave it a quick glance and said, "you always ride with the choke fully on?"
When life throws you a curve,.....lean into it!
