Default Will putt for grub


Nine something in the wind blowing, maybe gonna rain, Friday a.m.

Fixin' to ride my Harley.

Black Levi's, Red Wing Engineer boots with shin wraps underneath.
A logoed (guess which one) black t-shirt
under a leather, snap front, form fitted
vest.

This sheathed with a longsleeved
grey Levi workshirt (some of us
"motorcycle enthusiasts" opt for a
other than outlaw profile).

Ray Ban bifocal sunglasses and a pair of
well worn, once tan, full fingered leather
gloves.

Oh yeah- and a lid. Some of y'all call this
a helmet. Some may call it a beanie.
(Florida law no longer mandates one
when the insurance caveat is met)

I bought mine back in '88 when
everyone was required to wear one. Coupla
years ago a y-strap alteration was
legislated so I modded to comply
(I like to look like I'm tryin' to keep up with
the times).

Okay- oil good, gas good, tire pressure
topped to sidewall spec with air compressor
(oh sure, like every scooter pilot doesn't
do this pre ride routine).

Arright, pause for a moment to get right
with God (any ride can be the last one in
a whole body).

For me this means lookin' at
the two parent birds tendin' to the feedin'
of their nesting offspring and checkin'
about for Boris (he's our local feral cat-
keeps the mice population down but I seen
him in trees in the past tryin' to feather his maw).

Cool- now kick 'er through to loosen up the
rig and touch the button.

Man!

That All Balls starter is worth
every cent. I bet that ol' boy could
crank over a Space Shuttle engine.

Brake light function:
Check.
Headlight function:
Check.
Auxillary lights:
On.

Look for the ninja car.
Don't see one.
She's warmed up.
Ease out onto the road.

Gonna go to the local supermarket
and buy a bag of granola
cereal.

I hear breakfast is the most
important meal of the day.

No reason it shouldn't
be the most adventerous, eh?
