It is funny, now that you getting nice weather, here in FL we have had a whole days of pure rain and thunder. Not fun. My blackline has been under the covers for a long time now

WTF??!?


I’m experiencing a bit of weird luck, lately. It’s not the first time it’s happened, but it is noticeable to me. I hope it doesn’t become a streak, but you never know.

My friend Don is going to come down from Buffalo bringing some tools that I don’t have; a chain saw, and electric pole saw and a hammer drill. The hammer drill is so that I can install some bolt anchors in my basement floor to hold the NoMar tire changer. The anchors require a 5/8” drill bit which Don doesn’t have, so I ordered one from Home Depot. On Thursday, I got an e-mail saying it was in at the local store. A couple of hours later, I got an e-mail saying that the shipment was delayed and I wouldn’t get it until a couple of weeks from now. I went to the store and it was at the service counter. I don’t know what that second e-mail was all about.

My bike has been making a loud clunk whenever I hit a pothole or bump in the road. I determined that it was the gas cap, so I bought one of those low profile pop up gas caps from fleaBay. It was supposed to arrive by Friday. This is what I see when I go to the USPS web site to track it:

It originated about 20 miles south of here, just over the Ohio River. It was in Cincinnati, and now it’s taking a tour of North Carolina. By the time I get it, that gas cap will have a year’s worth of mileage on it.

I know that the USPS is a very efficient operation; I’ve had several worse experiences with both Fed EX and UPS. However, this one has me scratching my head. I’m wondering if maybe a loose piece of tape snagged my package and it’s stuck to something going somewhere else?

Well; whatever the reason, I hope it gets here soon. I’m heading for the Springfield Mile this coming weekend. It would be nice to have it on my bike then.

Hey, make sure the fuel cap has a one way vent or it may burp fuel occasionally. I bought one and it burped so I returned it and ended up with the Harley one, works great.
