What I've been doing over the past nine days when I obviously wasn't blogging...besides playing on Facebook...
But...it's on Amazon. The print version shows right now as out of stock, but that's mostly because they just got the data from the distributor. [clicky]
The Kindle version is available... With the e-ink it's all in black and white, but if you have a Kindle Fire or another color e-reader with a Kindle app, there are pictures in color. Color! Imagine that! [clicky]
Ride aborted, we put the bikes back, the Spouse Thingy hooked up a battery charger and a few days later he fired it up. And it died. He fired it up. And it died. =click=
The frustrating thing is that the dealership is 50 miles away, and pretty much all the other bikes shops around here closed one by one over the last couple of years. The one left...the Harley dealer in Vacaville. They had no issues with testing my very-non-Harley battery, though, and were happy enough to dig into manuals and find out exactly what battery it needed, and then ordered me one.
So two days later the Spouse Thingy put the battery in for me, charged it, and yesterday I fired it up...and it died. Fired it up. Died. Fired...and the engine would turn and turn and turn, but did not want to start.
It finally did start, but was obviously not happy about it. It ran rough, so I decided to ride around the court, and when it died once more I took it back into the garage, thinking that on Tuesday it would be headed to the dealership on the back of a tow truck. But today, after some advice from a couple other people, I fired it up and we went for a ride around town...not a single issue.
Apparently my favorite toy does not like gas that's even two weeks old. So I clearly have to ride it more so that it gets a regular supply of fresh gas.
These suckers...crash in one of these and unless you get run over, too, you get to keep all your skin.
Go ahead, buy me one, I know you want to. It's only like $900...
Should have bought it a couple years ago when it was a hundred bucks less...
Oh, and the other thing I've been doing?
Tormenting the cats.
Tho..Buddah has bitten it a couple of times.
He needs a name.
Something like NEDS. Non Edible Piece of $hit...at least that seemed to be what Max would call it.
