Don't assume your friend means the huge, obvious tree right next to your truck when he says, "watch out for the tree" as you are trying to back out of a camping site around midnight.

Still my favorite thread

On a positive note- Rather than keep busting your ass with a shovel, hoe and rake while trying to tear up some beat down, weed filled grass rooted in hard packed dry dirt....






Get that dirtbike out of the garage.

The neighbors have been doing construction for like two years now- let them try to complain.

Took about 20 mins and a while longer to get the dirt back off the driveway and sidewalk.

Didn't realize KTM made lawn and garden tools too.

This is the thread for me:)

Do screw in oil pressure sensor on 1981 Kawi LTD before starting it after replacing starter. Not only starting it but riding around in apartment complex parking lot, "oops" I said to complex manager.

Don't stop at the KFC buffet in Sedona, AZ, fill your tray up with a bunch of food that is too gross to completely consume then walk out to your bike only to realize that you left your tiny motorcycle keychain on your tray and threw it away with the food so that now you have to spend the next 10 minutes sifting through an almost full garbage can of KFC refuse in order to retrieve your key.

When you want to clean the windshield of your brand new car, remember when reaching for the Invisible Glass window cleaner that it is in an aerosol can which is strangely identical in size, shape and appearance to the black spray paint sitting on the shelf next to it.

Be sure to close and LATCH the door on the back of the enclosed trailer you rented to move a piano for your sister.....

so the ten sets of Ancra tie downs you borrowed from your friend don't fall out on the highway somewhere between Chicago and Milwaukee.

When filling up the gas tank of your MGB, make sure the fuel filler hose is still connected to the gas tank inlet, or at least keep in mind that your MG doesn't hold 15 gallons of gas.

Spare tires float.

If you're riding across your freshly sealed high school parking lot

in the rain

right after a football game when hundreds of people are around

including the marching band

don't nail the gas and wipe out.

The marching band knows JUST what to play to celebrate.

Be certain when threading on your new Purolator Pure One oil filter that it is actually threading on before you let it splash into the drain pan full of used oil, coating your shins, shoes, and underside of your wife's car with dirty oil and now you have to drive to Walmart on a Sunday night to get a POS Fram filter because Fleet Farm is closed.

When undoing the battery of your buddy's '69 Mustang Convertible, undo the negative terminal first instead of melting a hole in the fender.

When getting a motorcycle off of its center stand, be sure that it has a back tire on it.

Oh!, and don't consume a healthy dose of beer before moving motorcycle with no back tire
