Wife's parents came over to visit Sunday and her Dad noticed the tags on my pickup went out in September. Whoops. I got free early today, so I made a mad dash for the DMV ( fuck calling that place on the phone) and rode up 15 min before closing. The place was half full and I figured they might turn me away. A young man with some obvious special needs comes trotting through the parking lot with his Mom in tow. " Bike! Bike! Bike!" This guy was cracking me up with the things he was saying and doing. Absolutely no fear. Within the next minute he's put on my helmet and my gloves and he's up in the saddle. I think to myself " fuck it..." and stick the key in ( and made damn sure I held the clutch to the grip). " Hey, man... You wanna start it up?" Eyes like saucers...look over at his mom and she gives me a nod. " Yes! I wanna rev it up". Alright, turn the key this way...ok, push this button... VROOM. Dude is laughing his ass off and pretty much just slobbering up the chin bar of my lid. I'm keeping a tight grip on the clutch if he accidentally kicks the shifter, so I can't reach the throttle or the kill switch from where I am. He's dropping rev bombs off the limiter and I've got the DB killer out of the Arrow exhaust. EVERYONE is looking at us, including the security guard that's coming outside to see who's making all noise. Wild man turns the key off and I think to myself " thank God he's done " because I've never hit the rev limiter before. Help him off the bike and retrieve my helmet. Both of us can't stop laughing and his Mom looks like she's getting teary eyed. " Steven, how do you always know who your friends are?". Dude hugs me and it feels like I'm being crushed to death. He's strong as hell. He kisses the side of my face " you be careful" and he walks away. One of the most action packed 2 minutes of my life. His mom says thanks and we chat for a moment. She's obviously upset, but says he loves bikes and appreciate me letting him do that. " Bikes are for fun. Happy to see mine put a smile on someone else's face".

I walk in the DMV and get in line, hoping I don't get turned away. Lady comes around the counter and pulls me to her cubicle by my sleeve. Turns out Steven is her nephew and decide he wanted to visit her today. She saw us in the parking lot, so she gave me the VIP treatment for spending time with him. " He loves motorcycles. His sister died in a motorcycle accident." Ah, that explains things. We chat for a bit and I'm on my way. In and out under 3 minutes

Decided I want a taco so rode over to taco Bell. Guy in a taco Bell uniform is coming down the wall carrying a box, so I hold the door for him. Hi, hello, thanks, no problem...all that stuff. I go to order and he takes the clerks place " what'll you have". I order and he doesn't punch any buttons. He goes in the kitchen, makes my order and just hands it to me. Uhh...that was not expected. " Don't forget your receipt, sir." I stick out my hand and he gives me a fist full of free manager coupons for free food. " You don't have to do all this, man. I appreciate it, but....". "Happy New year, sir *wink*.... Who's next?!"

This karma stuff is alright.

I'll admit I got choked up in the shop this evening after getting home and thinking about Steven. I would guess he is mid 20's and his mom looked about mid 50's. Who takes care of him when she's gone? Is he content, or does he realize he's missing out on some things? All kinds of thoughts. Then it dawned on me that I'm sure he wasn't thinking anything about those things himself, he's just going day to day having fun and living in the moment. It's not a bad way to live! Try to remember him the next time I'm grumpy or worried about something. He asked his Mom to take a picture of us together with her phone. Kinda wish I woulda got her to send me that pic. Oh well.

My wife now works with special needs adults that live alone. Helping them manage their finances, household chores, personal hygiene, etc... it takes a special kind of person. I couldn't do it every day.

Kids seemed drawn to the KLR when I had it. Several times I ended up with kids on that bike when stopped at different places. Hopefully planting the seed for new riders They beat the shit outta your gas tank climbing around tho!

Kids and bikes... When i come in work with bike i heep it at our storage room. I always keep the door opened so i can enjoy the view from my seat. So many kids try to dissapear that way.

And Eric, im not surprised you did that, i think most of us would do it. I dont like others wearing my helmet though

I wasn't thrilled about the helmet bit, but I wasn't man enough to turn him down . No harm done. Bought a fresh pack of Clorox wipes before heading home.

Had an unexpected package show up today. I thought I'd been on ebay and forgot what I'd ordered again, but nope...just Mac hooking me up with some #d printed goodness.

Thanks, Mac. Will definitely put this to good use.

Someone posted the model on a 3D printing forum not long after you posted your SS gift, I figured maybe this will let that piece of the gift live on past the life of its contents
Hopefully it fits right, I don't exactly have a can laying around to test fit with.

Might be good for carrying bits around in your bag or something like that. Don't feel obligated or anything though, I won't be offended if you don't use it.

Today, I turn 28 and I started the day off right with being woken up with a phone call from my grandfather, cooking breakfast for the family and then changing my oil/filter and starter in my truck. Soon I will go get some more lumber and continue making my storage train to help make the next move easier. Today is a good day.
