Yes. before that it was a highly collectible shade of Lobster Bisque, but as it went down the driveway it turned pink.

Sold too soon. Now it has to be worth so much more.

I'm sure it is. But I don't have it any more, that's the main thing. Damn thing was in the way. I reminisced about it for a day, but I'm glad it's gone.

Today I shall take it off my insurance, and replace it with the long awaited CB750K rebuild, which was completed over winter. Completed that is, until some hidden gremlin comes out.

I can only imagine how cold that ride was, and I'm going to continue to imagine.. I've ridden to work when it was 7 degrees, but that's 9 miles and I knew my ride home in the afternoon would be in the 20's..

How many miles was that ride for pie?

170 miles each way, and it was 15 degrees all the way up, about 25 all the way back. Thank feck the sun came out on the way back.

Plus the Delta Drummond road was covered in ice. That bit was a little dicey.



But I really needed a PBLT and some PIE!

Mine was in the mail the other day. It's still on my desk. So you're saying I have to actually look at it?

Can I get it autographed at the Central Rally so I can EBay it?

True to form for me this year, it is now highly unlikely that I will make an appearance at the Central rally.

So THAT'S how you drive the price of your signature up. Interesting.
