Alright, so I’m getting so close to just throwing in the towel on this thing.
After doing some more work on the Chinese steeds, shop-teacher’s suggestion about getting rid of them finally sunk in. I’ve learned a decent bit about wrenching from them, but I’d rather be riding than wrenching.
And the scooter is dead for a third time now...I’m running out of things to replace.
I figured I’d start it off with Oppo’s favourite bike from my hoard.
Well...there was still too much ice to safely depart for work. So I spent the extra time I made for myself making sure the ‘Wing was in shape for a ride after work today. Meanwhile, I managed to anger my first neighbour!
And I feel a little weird about it. The Rebel found itself on Marketplace after 100 miles and roughly six months and the Kawasaki
KE100A G5 popped up some hours ago. It cleaned up really well!
I’ve had health insurance for the entirety of my transition, and aside from a few times where I’ve had to pay about $70, the cost of my Hormone Replacement Therapy has been about a few dollars a month.
If you’ve been following my adventures over the past months, you got to read about some struggles, some bests, and a whole lot of motorcycles. However, for once I have something else to say!
Because if not, why does it exist and how is it getting so many views?
US spec smart 451 fortwos use different blower motors than their Euro counterparts and to the surprise of nobody on Oppo, the US ones are worse.
Yesterday I sent shop-teacher an ad that turned out to be the scooter he sold not too long ago. As coincidence would have it, I also found an old two wheeled friend as well!
Thanks to today’s theme day I took a trip down memory lane. I joined Kinja when Jalopnik wrote an article about how community members could have their articles shared to the FP. I’ve had some fun first posts!
Well this is weird. The person who was supposed to pick up the KE100A didn’t show. The next buyer was a savvy feller who checked the VIN and figured out I’ve been bamboozled.
The 450 started and I have a plan for the 451!
This...this is why:
The first car I’ve ever driven is this 2003 GMC Envoy XL. It’s been in my family since 2008 and it’s near the very end of its life. And should I not find another smart in time for the Gambler 500, I may give it one last wild ride.
MBFS has been paid and life is back to normal! This has been quite a bit of a learning experience.
If you own a first generation W450 and live in an area where it happens to rain (forget about snow) and you park outside, start the car at least once every week or else...
