No, it has to go somewhere with her riding first.
Then she can start stickering it up.
There's a worthy goal to add miles
In yesterday’s scooter wash-fest I even put wax on the beautiful 15 year old Razzo.
Pretty damn nice Bill. You're getting up there to Eric standards!
I didn’t go for the q-tips.
I just got a call for a new project to add onto a house in Ortega.
I asked the address and realized it is a house I designed a big addition to 23 years ago.
This is the second new project I have gotten since the shutdown.
Maybe people stuck at home are wanting to use this new free time to plan work on their houses.
Anyway, unexpected good news for me.
I'll be the one on the nearby street corner holding the cardboard sign, and maybe, um, doing other things. And don't judge me, I need the money
A friend who lives outside of Lexington told me that Home Depot is seriously busy and she's talked to them about improving social distancing in their store. Apparently people actually spending a lot time in their homes have caused them to realize what they've been neglecting.
I like to get as far as I can out of each fill up on my scooters.
This is filling Razzo’s 2.5 gallon tank today.
I haven’t run out on any of the Vespas yet.
You might have pushed that right to the limit. Ever heard of "running on fumes"?
Nice that you are getting some new work during this slowdown. Too bad there won't be any supplies with which to build it.
Which wash did you get?
I usually get the delux, with the chamber maids drying it with chamois, but I had already washed it yesterday.
I do it all of the time.
I once put over 2.6 gallons into the 2.5 gallon tank.
I think that the manufacturers under quote the tank size for our protection.
I looked for the key to the Zuma on my closet shelf today.
It wasn't there, but I wanted to ride that one to work.
I figured that I must have left in the ignition last time I use it.
The key was in the ignition, so I got on to start it and nothing.
It turns out that the last time I rode it, it turned off automatically when I put the side stand down.
Then I pushed it into the garage without dealing with the key.
It was in the on position for two days, draining the battery entirely.
Can it be revived with a charge?
Luckily, I have a spare with Crash about to go to the trash heap.
It may come back if you charge it at low amperage. If it is completely dead a battery tender will not work. The longer it sits completely dead the more sulfated it becomes.
Don't feel too bad, I've done the same. If the battery was good to start with, it will come back. I had to jump mine
(with the car off) to start it, ran it around block a quite a number of times-not too far if it died and I had to walk it back-then put it on the charger for a day. Next morning, it fired right up, so I did a nice long ride on the highway.
It is a one year old Motobatt. I will use a jump start pack and ride around the ‘hood today. I hope it works.
Did that once with the Buddy. Discovered that you need at least a bt of juice in the battery to kick start it. Put it on a slow charge overnight. That worked better than riding it in my case.
