Whoot! First Ride Of The Season.


Usually I'm not ready to ride until May, so I did well this year.   I bought a new battery on Friday, only cost me $60.  This afternoon, I put the new one in - it took about a half hour, because I am slow.  I hate doing this stuff.  Anyway, I tried to start it and it just would not go.  Turned over, yeah, but it just wasn't catching.  Tara came out because she heard the noise and watched me for a few minutes.  Then she asked, "Did you turn on the gas?"  AAAAHHHH!  Rick had gotten me a sticker a long time ago that said "Turn on the gas, dummy."  Duh, me.  Gas on, and she started right up.  I can't believe I made such a rookie mistake. 
Found a couple chestnuts and corn kernels in the exhaust pipe.  Stupid mice.  But, they vibrated right out.  But I was watching to see if I got any popcorn out of it.  Ha.
Took a ride around the block to warm up the engine, and then I changed the oil.  She needs a bath very badly, I put her away dirty last fall.  Bad mdnytryder. 
Now all I need to do is get it inspected.  Maybe next weekend. 
Happy happy, if it doesn't rain tomorrow, Betty and I will go for a little ride.  Dairy Queen, here we come!


Today was a good day.

Yep, and ride we did - on Sunday. You've gotta get yourself one!
She's still pretty dirty, I have to do a complete cleaning this week...in my spare time.
