Good to have a choice, but what a choice that is.

I am defiantly going to look into vintage insurance when I get it back on the road. As I started repairing it, the deeper I get the more I find wrong. Went to put another set of forks on it and found out the trees are bent. With that, the entire front was broken or bent in the crash with the exception of the headlight. How the headlight didn't get broken is a small wonder since even the speedometer got tweaked, the headlight cowl got cracked and various headlight supports were also bent. The tire is still holding air, even with the damage to the wheel.

I have been back on a bike but just on the street so far and the first ride after the crash felt soooo good. Driving an automobile after a two year absence from them reminds me of how complacent and unaware it causes drivers to be unless they are actively engaged in driving and driving only. As a motorcycle rider, I have acquired an almost second nature at detecting hazards before I get to them by looking far ahead, but obviously not far ahead enough to see the future and I still can't read drivers minds, but working on that.

I've got to get out of the automobile before it makes me soft. I find myself enjoying the heater and staying dry too much.
I staired a whole thru the breaks until I remembered the carb prolly has a problem to and I'm gonna hafta work on em.
