so, i get the whole damn thing together by saturday nite and give her a kick.... and another.... and another.... and another couple dozen. to the point where im out of breath and there isnt even the faintest sign of life in the ol gal. turns out i crossed the two wires that fry your ignition system and it was F-d. I called up cody and told him i was selling my motorcycle and getting a scooter to ride to CA when he informs me that there is a perfectly good 2000i ignition on the workbench at his parents house, and Im welcome to it if i wanted it.... HELL YEA! thanks Cody, i owe you one of my kidneys. after fiddling with every switch on the damn thing and kicking the ever loving crap out of it, i realize that i had the last switch set on single fire. switch it to dual fire, one kick and shes up and running!
few leaks here, few leaks there, an exhaust pipe that decided to jump ship on the way to work this morning, but all in all, shes running great and i couldnt be happier to be in the wind on a totally different machine! Sorry, no pics until after the big trip. i know, dick move, but i gotta stick to it or it will ruin the surprise when i get to New Orleans.
OH! and last nite, i rode her over to my buddy steves cause he wanted to get a look at her and share a celebratory toke.... hung around his place for a bit and he threw in a movie i had heard of but hadnt had the pleasure to watch yet- White Commanche.
Thats right, youre not seeing things. thats William Shatner in a Spaghetti Western. and let me be the first to tell you this one is so bad, its good. Shatner plays a cowboy thats constantly catching hell from the locals wherever he goes. Why is he catching hell? cause his no-good twin brother (shatner again) is head of a tribe of commanches that run around town robbing and killing everyone in sight. Listening to Shatner try to talk like an indian chief makes this movie worth watching- the typical broken up dialoge sounds even funnier when hes trying to do an indian accent! and of course, he does all his own stunts in this one. Would you expect anything less from Captain James T. Kirk!?!?
Thanks for tuning in. pics soon, maybe a few sneak peeks.
