Wowsers, I did she ride a Katoom? I had a chat with a gal on the starting line. Nice gal. She has some problems kick-starting the bike and left the line way late. Then she passes me a few mins later (I imagine most things could do this).

Next thing I know, she wipes out on nothing that I can see and takes a big 'ol belly flop. Not sure how she was able to belly flop but she did. I ask if she's okay (and knowing I would never be able to kick start a Katoom), I carry on. About 4 mins later, she passes me again. Boom. Same damn wipeout. Nothing I can see to make her fall, and another belly flop. Never saw her again.

Sounds like EOD3MC's MO. Not only did he stop to rescue a few folks, he also lapped me! His other bike has the license plate: TTRU = Team Turtle Recovery Unit



BTW: I think this is footer material:

I won't be at the RTE. Meghan is out of town, which means I'm on baby sitting duty... which means I talked my mom into baby sitting which means I plan on riding. Which means I'm heading west, young man. 62 degrees you say? Dunkle Hollow here I cometh.

+1 (minus the baby and the wife and the mom taking care of a baby I don't have because I don't have a wife)

So I finally got the bike legal. Well, mostly legal. She still needs a state inspection, but I should be good to go now. This weekend i set out to install the tail tidy. Four hours later the front end was apart, and the tail tidy was still laying on the floor. Fast forward to today and everything is good to go. Finally got a license plate light installed.
