That white turtle light is making me loony! It works perfectly at room temperature conditions, but when it gets fasten to a cold handlebar, it will not turn on. If I bring it to the warranty folks, they are going to think I'm crazy, because it will appear to work OK. Going to have to give it one more chance to see what happens.

The BB bearing are definitely going ka-chunk. Going to have to service those in the near future.

Saw a show on motorcycles last night. They look quite thrilling. Would love to try a 1969 Honda CB750, those disk brakes seem like an appropriate solution for that four cylinder engine. In the meantime, even a Honda Cub would give me decent practice on motorized two wheelers. Suppose we must save up for luxuries like these.
