Pm me your address and I'll send it when it's off. Probably won't get a chance to do it for a few days as I'm involved in a union dispute in work and up to my eyeballs.

Went for a 60 mile ride on the P200/sidecar. Half way through I stopped at a strawberry farm and bought a flat of strawberries, and stuck them in the hack. I guess I underestimated how much bouncing was going on in the sidecar...I understood better when I got home.

I don't know.. I'm still on hold over an hour waiting to talk to the police..
Inurance Co. won't pay until they "wait for 2-3 weeks" to see if they find it!

With Tijuana only 3 hours away, my bet is it's already south of the border..

I'm so bummed.. the truck had less than 27k miles over 3 years... then they'll check the blue book value and based on what I still owe the bank on it, there's a chance I could not only have no truck, but still owe money! How fucked is that!

yours truly,

Ghaaaaaah

I'm with Jackson Vader, hopefully it is not far away and the worst you have is some dripping beer cans and a used condom or three to deal with. Fingers crossed anyway. There are some fucktards out there for sure

Why do they laugh at your bike Ebeth? Today I went for a long ride for the first time in ages. Lately it's just been to the shops or work. Scoot is running better as a result.

its good to be back on the ride with a vespa right

they like to laugh for diferent reason when i ride my excel they laugh cause my bike look so plain simple while they demand a nice excel is a T5 wannabe not one with tons of accesories but i simply shut their mouth when i open the engine cowl, when i ride on my sprint same reason and while in a vbb they laugh at my paint as its not a vespa color while they prefer one that look as og as possible but i dont mind as i know i am different and i am happy with myself nor my bike as i build them the way i want it with my own hand

have a nice ride and cheer Brother B

That's very strange Ebeth. You have so many way out machines there. Are you saying that people like them totally modified, and totally stock but nothing in between?

Scooted my truckles ass to and fro work (always nice) but I'm still mighty bent about some assmunch stealing my wheels.

Anyway, c'est la vie! .... that's Spanish right?

Got another one of my favorite compact plug wrenches, the famous Greatneck 28006! Go ahead!.... Google it! I'll watch the numers skyrocket!


Fnrrrrt!
