dont get me wrong, at first I DID want a trailer. the phone died, i recharged it some at the store in the mall, but charge didnt last long. i thought "what a day this has turned out to be" after a bit of "FML"thinking i turned a "bad day" into a GOOD DAY.

millions of phones everywhere, i could have used someone elses cell, but I needed the time for myself. an opportunity i could desperately use, giving me free time to think. (and giving me the perfect excuse)

i had money, and i had contacts that i could have reached if i decided to back out of my little "trip" using a pay or cellphone. I told myself "i cant ride it"..i could, but that was the answer i gave myself. i knew i had to have some time "off" from my routine.

i enjoyed it. i didnt think i was going to. but i did. best trip i did with the bike in a long time. lotta head clearing. i cant say i am the only person here with a TON OF STRESS. i just did what was on hand for a perfect opportunity. worked out perfect. and when i got home went to sleep and hand the best sleep in a looong time.

i REALLY enjoyed it. it didnt suck at all ( guess that was my way of getting some anger/stress out.

as texlurch said "to each thier own". used it to my advantage (not that i normally want to do it this way, but everything worked out in a way i could use it to my advantage. i needed a few hours "non communication" from the world.

Hey bro glad you made it in okay. Wow you are getting alot of flack from your brethren here huh? You would swear at some point we all haven't done anything others would consider stupid on or for our beloved 2 wheels. The thought of being on 2 wheels alone gives most the chills but we still get out and enjoy the road. By the responses you are getting one would think you held up a Salvation Army Santa during Christmas lol. If you ever get stuck in Katy again hit my cell 832-741-3597 I will do whatever I can. Stay safe.

About this time last winter I was going to do a good deed for a neighbor in the front of the subdivision. No good deed goes unpunished.

I rode the GSXR750 up there (~1 mile) and stopped at their place. There was no answer at the door, so I went to get back on the bike and turned the ignition on. There was an older lady two doors down that came out and started saying something to me. You know that naturally a gent on a sportbike with a dew rag and dark glasses is up to no good. I pulled off the dew rag and the glasses and we chatted for ~20 mins (her tone changed completely). She was a very nice lady.

I went back to the bike to start it and discovered that with the ignition left on (and all of the lights) that the battery would not crank the bike fast enough to start and wound up killing the battery. She offered to let me use the phone, but I thought I could get it started. I tried unsuccesfully to bump start it several times.

I pushed it home. I am by no means overweight or vastly out of shape, but that was a bit$h of a load for that mile to the house. That GSXR750 felt like it weighed 1000 lbs. I admire your effort in pushing your bike all of that distance.

me i woulda rode it, w/ the threads showing, if your riding at a sane speed let alone slow it woulda just deflated as you went along vs blowout.

christ on a crutch!!

All your condescending, holier than thou attacks on members about what they did wrong and how everything is their fault and the times their malfortune (even when it couldn't have) coud have been prevented by more training/experience/ -like ability, and here you say this.

with your earlier allusion to triple digit speeding and now having a hot busa and the aforementioned statement, I'm beginning to think that you might actually be a regular guy m/c rider who just puts on this front for the sake of looking like a supremely upright rider.

I'm beginning to think that in person you're probably an allright guy who I could get along with. (you're little admissions, here and there, have addd up) now just try and stick with the safety stuff and drop the personal attacks and you might just get to be a guy that everyone can like!

bump start = rolling it in neutral and then popping the clutch? had an '02 gixxer that would "bump start every time.
