Been awhile since I posted anything in the forum. Got too busy at work and let's just say the organization that I work for monitors internet usage and although some personal internet usage is OK, I abstain from it as much as possible. Just sayin'.
So to catch up, I had me an accident on 9/19/11 leaving work. Not totally sure what happened, but the side stand on me beloved 85 K100, ZoomZoom either came down or I failed to put it up. Nevertheless, she made a hard right hand U-turn just fine out of my parking spot. I felt something odd on my left peg, but didn't stop fast enough before a slight left curve. I locked up the brakes, but hit a guard rail dead on. Bent the forks and the front wheel, plus other damage. So after over 160K and many great rides, my K was totalled. I shattered my clavicle and ended up with a plate holding it together. Both my doctor and Mrs. Godzilla banned me from riding (still have my /5) until I healed up.
Even on the way down to surgery on the 22nd, I was looking for a replacement K!
I found a nice 86 K100RT and bought that. I had to trailer it from the guy I bought it from and took her straight to Wilbur to get a few things fixed and to have the trailer hitch put on. We also trailered poor old ZoomZoom, the Donor bike up there so Wilbur could get my Russell seat switched. Glad I did that. Hard to beleive there are alot of differences between the 85 and 86 models, so to make the Russell fit, parts were needed from the 85.
I healed up enough that I am allowed short rides, just can't over do it yet.
So this past Friday Mrs. Godzilla and I went to retrieve the bikes and Ethel, the Wee Bike Trailer. Mrs. Godzilla drove Whole Lotta Rosie (my Dodge Ram), pulling Lester, the Big Trailer. We strapped Poor Old ZoomZoom, the Donor Bike on Lester and I rode the new 86 pulling Ethel. This was my first ride, so she hadn't told me her name yet. I wanted to call her Annie, but truthfully the first name to pop in my head was Lucy.
It wasn't until I got home and took a picture when I realized Lucy was her name, especially since she was hooked up to Ethel. Lucy and Ethel. I think I am funny anyway. Sorry!
So this picture is Lecy and Ethel, with Rosie and Lester in the background and Poor Old ZoomZoom on Lester. Family portrait almost. Should have wheeled Zippy, the /5 out.
