No nutin' with start button

Was gonna go for the 10mi ride into Gainesboro today but it was a no go. Same thing happened a few days ago(both times were after bike sat for a few days because of rain[in th' dry]. Son held start button in and wiggled connector on start relay & she fired up! Gotta tighten that up one of these days....good ride in and back(avoided th' rain). Son rode back about an hour later. Could hardly see him thru the downpour. I called on the phone to mention that his Vulcan was not nearly as noisy(no baffles!) and to find out if his underware got wet. He had no sense of humor at all!

If your son's teen bearing days were anywhere normal, he probably thought your humor was lacking on those 2:00/3 am workdays. Gotta get those digs in now while you can.

When my grandson was "acting up", one time, my son was complaining about it to me.
I just had to remind him how "pay-back-is-a-bitch".

No sense of humor there either.

I guess it all works out in the end. We all ride off road now.
