Bad motorcycle owner and mechanic.

It happens.Live and learn, I guess.

Dang, the ride back was COLD! Turns out my heated vest came unplugged, so I rode all the way home with it off. I thought something wasn't right but I didn't want to stop and check it out.

So that's what that plug was dangling at your left foot when you took off. I tried to get your attention but you were gone too quickly. I'm just glad it didn't snag in your chain. As you rode out of sight, I said to myself, "I'm sure he knows what he's doing." Guess I was wrong.

Yup, that's what it was. Thankfully, it didn't end up in the chain.

Nooooooo! Ok,I probably won't make it the 22nd,I don't have a car,and the bikes are all in a state of repair. I'll push and try to get out on the 5th.

A local yokel is getting his ducks in a row,and is trying to get the proper license to open a BBQ joint in Inman.I was hoping some of us could help support a little guy and maybe have a few weekend lunches there.I don't have the address yet but I have a map.
