Fantastic Weather, Bike in the Shop

I am somewhat cranky.

The Triumph has been in the shop getting de-gremlined for nearly a week, and we're currently having the one week per year where living in Arizona is totally awesome.

The good news is that the mechanic located the oil leaks, and I just need a couple new seals. Also, the battery problem is just a slowly dying battery and not an issue with the charging system. And since it's in there anyway, it's getting a major service done, so when I get it back, it should be a whole new machine.

But waiting until I get it back is killing me.

Murphy's Law strikes again.

I hope you don't get the reception I received after dropping my bike off at the Harley Dealer. When I went to pick it up, a huge wall of a man came out, snatched me up by my ankles and shook me repeatedly until all of my money and loose change was shaken out of my pockets.

Hope you're back to riding soon.

bobskoot - riding before the sun comes up without a headlight really sucks. Yep, good old Murphy, always messing with us.

Allen - They do basically the same thing at the Triumph shop, only the guy has a British accent
