People who drove my car since I owned it.

My Dad,
Kevin cuz he helped me drive it up here,
Klod,
Klods wifey (cuz I drove her audi when we were doing work on it and she needed some thing to drive)

I think that actually may be it... I can't think of anyone else off the top of my head...

Morning people. Sorry to hear about the bike Klod, that sucks! I never was much into wheelies, more blast corners. I'd pull the front end up coming out of a corner in 2nd, and carry it thru 3rd, but never up near the balance point. That's a common problem for a lot of bikes that get sustained wheelies done on them.

Unsure if I'll ever want to pull the front wheel off the ground.. and if I do it'll probably be just a mini hop.. is scurry.

Also I'm gunna be upset when it doesnt' end up raining today cuz then I could have biked again.

also also filled up yesterday at 113mi since there is no gas gauge I wanted to play it safe and calculate my milage on the bike so i can know about when the tank is empty. Ended up only having to put 2.5 gal in... which equals 44.6 mpgs. Well over twice the city milage of the G.

Also poopy on weather. Weather channel says its got 30% chance to start raining here around 4. And I never trust Michigan that much so sounds like G today to work. Nbd.

Also I'm taking G tomorrow too because leaving right after work for GR.

Klod when is your dinner date stuff tomorrow? I should be there by 8 and just want to know if I have to entertain myself for a while or not.
Yup was Tyler and IDK what time exactly we are getting dinner. I kinda want to start working on the bike tomorrow evening too so I've still gotta work all that out.

Just smile and remember that it wasn't the BMW motor that spun a bearing... cuz that'd be extra lame and you'd probably have to flip the bike to fix bmw.... so $300 for new motor... sell bike and upwards of a grand or 2 to fix bmw... I think your better off this way lol.


still is sad

I have no desire to do a wheelie at all...also my bike has a light that blinks when gas low, and stays on when really low.....I get 50mpg http://www.fuelly.com/driver/wordyahurdd/sv650

Good news Klod, changing the motor on a bike is WAY easier than a car.

Mine might too I guess. I haven't run it that low yet cuz I just assumed with no gauge there wouldn't be a light either, but maybe there is. I'm going to run it out to like 160mi this next time. 44.6 mpg w/ a 4.23gal tank is supposidly 188mi but I know I won't use up the entire tank and as I get more comfortable riding I probably wont' be accelerating as grandma like as I have been so it may go down a bit.. but 160 should be a reasonable number of miles/tank



Also I may have posted this before but it's funny and I want to do it
