So at Motorcycles Unlimited the other day...

Had my day of fame....well stupidity. In for some chain/sproket work and Patrick calls me in from outside ..."missing something?"
Shows me my black and decker search light. I'm thinking how the did he get it .....
Turns out while working on in my garage I set it on top of my rear plastic guard above the rear tire...left it... Then road to Motorcycles Unlimited with it.
Patrick found it melted and melted that rear plastic guard on my bike as well due to tire friction .
Lol glad it didn't cause more damage,
So anyhow, no one outright called me an asshat as they should have lol

While we're confessing, I once left a heavy locked chain on my rear wheel. Obviously I did a poor job of routing it, because I was able to ride off with it intertwined between the spokes. Rode about 3 miles to the freeway entrance, and once I got up to speed the back end started hopping violently. Thought wtf, and pulled on the shoulder. Felt very lucky when I saw the chain wrapped around the wheel and that it didn't lock up the wheel.

When the "club" was popular, I was too cheap and used the same chain and lock to lock the brake of my P/U to the steering column. Left a bar and forgot about the lock, backed up, tried to stop and oh ****.

Stupid chain or stupid user?

When we pulled it into the shop the damned thing was still on!
At first I'm like, someone really wants to light up their license plate, but it's REALLY going to limit suspension travel.
Then we look closer and realize it's just wedged in there and is on, shining perfectly out of the back of the bike.
You have to give Black and Decker props for making good stuff.

That was in the days before shift interlocks. Once you unlocked the steering, you could shift - no need to press the brake back then.

I hear that. Now that I ride the track, I'm more conscious about finding dropped nuts, etc., so I don't deposit them on the track. Once cornerworking at TWS (Texas World Speedway), I spotted a large bolt on the line in a turn - yes I retrieved it.
