I put our unit in the barn and rode home. They were still there. A few left. They put their belts together and tried to tow it. Not even leather belts. Didn't work. :whistle:

No tools, don't know where the fuses are, What's becoming of our youth? A Harley rider rode past with a smile. I'll remember that when he is on the side of the road. This is a small community, it WILL happen. :evil:

Heh. They thought they could tow it with another bike? I guess none of these guys have insurance, or even $50 for a tow truck? Wow. Those all of those bikes are probably stolen.

Steve didnt read your post about Bossie properly - thought you were talking about your dog - boy did i stuff up :woohoo:
Of course our bikes are many times better than a woman and "easy to get along with" - Sorry about that Bud !
Towing a bike with belts - were they trying for a Darwin ? Dumb as F**k
You will see that chinese boat anchor on the side of the road one day - no doubt about that,
My bikes have always just been "IT". Never understood why Bikes, Boats etc are she ??

Tradition. Maybe wishful thinking? :whistle:
I think it's a group of "Hispanic" guys, (gotta be politically correct) :dry: that formed a club and bought crotch rockets to be cool. At least they weren't Sprotsers. You know what they say about them. I could tell most of them resented me. I wonder why? :huh:
When I bought my Z1 in 75, there were four of us. Jim M 73 Z!, Larry M 74 Z1a, me 75 Z1b and Jim Erwin with his new 76 KZ 900. He and I were the only ones that knew how to work on bikes. The other two would take their bikes to the shop and brag about how much they spent. :S Jim M was the veteran. He was unbeatable in the turns. I could keep up with him, Larry spent $2000 on a 1015 kit, Kirker, cams, shocks and other mods but couldn't ride for SHT. He'd walk away from us in the straights and be in the way in the turns. Jim E was the slowest of the group. The KZ 900 was detuned. :unsure: We were on top of the food chain but it didn't last. I left LA and never looked back.

:lol: The thought of being tied at the hip to a dealer for service is just frightening. No center stands. WTF? I carry a patch kit and a mini compressor. Last year I passed by some Ninja's at 70 crossing the Mojave. I was at 4000 RPM and they were at 65 at 5000. All hunkered down like that. I was on a 400 mile ride, they were just going to the next town. To each his own. :whistle:

I don't think these are the kind of guys who get their bikes serviced. They wreck it before the first oil change.

I started on a Sears All State. My first real bike was a 350 Honda. I learned to work on it and kept riding everywhere.
Took the alarm out of my truck and put it in the bike.

I don't work out of town anymore and it will be fun seeing the look on the faces of the low life's, :evil:

Cold and windy today so I might as well work on the bike in her shade cover. It's warming up a little so I'll run into town. I changed my shift lever back to the one I had on there for 20 years. The new one I bought from Z1E looked great but I couldn't get one notch down because of the pawl holding the kick stand spring. I'd miss shifts as a result.

I don't care what it looks like. I don't miss shift with it.

When I get back from town, I think I will attack my new oil cooler. That will take some doing. :whistle:

These people were playing cat and mouse with me for 5 miles. When I could pass, the van and car would speed up, then they would slow down again. They thought they had me again, I don't think so.
:angry: Saw it was clear and went for it. By by.
Steve

The car followed me all the way into town. All butt hurt. :whistle:
