Rollin' All Nite
Got me a roller. Looks good with a twenty-one inch front. But, with a big Avon on the rear I can't fit a lead battery behind the seat post. Don't want to use a round tank/battery box combos, (yeech!!) I'm going to try a lithium 8 cell, according to the manufacturer's specs it should (maybe) start the 1200.
Using very limited fabrication skills and a block of wood as a dummy battery, I put a battery box, (basket) together between shots, beers and sardines.
As the night wore on I came to several conclusions:
1. I shouldn't breathe kerosene fumes and weld in my underwear.
2. My dog will greedily eat those nasty sardine vertebrae and dropped crackers.
3. When armed only with a knife, 'tis better to gently cajole an olive out of the jar as opposed to a wanton stabbing motion.
4. If I were a woman I would like to be called Cynthia.
