I have a motorcycle. I have just finished tuning it so it purrs like a kitten. It seems to accelerate nicely and go well. Brakes good, tank clean, fresh gas. Today would have been a PERFECT day to go for a ride, however brief.

But as I have the coordination of a piece of bacon, I have no interest in getting large portons of my calves abraded off under my bike, so I’m trying to get into the local ABATE program. Since they don’t accept credit cards online, the only option you have is cash or money order mailed to them. I’ve had no luck getting free to get such a thing done. So my freshly rebuilt bike sits in the shed. Sigh.
