The guy who decides weather or not I could miss work this morning said I could come in at noonish so I could pick up my bike and insurance this morning. Unfortunatly everything opens at 10am around here on Saturday, the insurance took longer than normal, an appointment with my land lady for 11 happened at 11:25, and the paperwork for the KLR had to be redone due to inproper VIN#.
The guys at "The Motorcycle Shop" were super cool and were going to deliver the bike to work for me. But when I called to tell work I'd be right there (1:20, after I called at noon saying everything exploded) he told there wasn't much going on and not worry about comming in. He also told me to enjoy the bike and take a ride tomorrow.
So I put 26miles on it, took a ride around Lake Hood (the bussiest Float Plane Base in the WORLD) and down to Earthquake Park to check out the mountains across Cook Inlet at low tide. I also road past Alaska Leather (home of the sheepskin buttpad). I was happy to find that my surveying vest (with tons of retro-reflective fabric) fits snugly over my jacket for high visability.
Too bad its raining now.
I'm only 474 miles away from that first oil change and 4000+ RPM Buwahahahaha!!!
I have to give it up for my salesman at The Motorcycle Shop. Even though things blewup with the paperwork he was cool and I could tell he was doing everything he could to get me out of there as fast as possible.
