Well if the expectancy is those numbers but pushing the comma at least one digit to the right...

Got more bike related events planned and locked down for this summer than probly four or five years prior, bike related or not, latest addition being a trackday on a track I haven't been on before. June can't come soon enough...

Oh and it's fukken hot here! Gauge hit 30°c yesterday and it's still May.

This just happens to be bike related.

Out for a spin last Saturday after voting, compulsory over here, fined $ if you don't, not paying any attention to the semi accurate fuel gauge and came spluttering to halt on the out skirts of the city, semi rural, horses and shit.

Pondering what to do, at least 10k's to the nearest petrol station, I decide to ring my daughter to come to the rescue, as the phone is still ringing, I look across the road and there's a man pointing to red jerry can he's carrying, I hang up the phone as this complete stranger approaches, said he saw from across the road and thought I might need some petrol.

What a fucking legend, never had anyone help without having to ask before, get enough petrol to make it to the next petrol station and fling him ten bucks, thats all he wanted, saved a lot of inconvenience, time, effort, etc,etc,

Greg from Dural, I owe you a beer you good samaritan.

The fork selas on my black VFR were leaking so I put in some new fork seals and oil, might explain it's so shit handling on bumpy roads.....might not.

So the bike sat for a number of weeks after I pulled out the forks and waited for the fork seals.

Put it together last weekend and was eager for test ride, went looking for some favourite bumpy shit roads, I don't know a great deal about settings for forks, or spring rates, it didn't feel too bad, but not sublime and great and all those other surperlatives.

Coming up to a stop sign, the bike cuts out, so I try bump starting it just before the stop sign, nope ....dead, so I pull over before ending up down the bottom of steep hill.

I try the starter, no go, think about who I could ring for help and decide its a lovely day for a bit of a walk, I've been working underground in a tunnel for months so some fresh air and I figure that I'll bum a lift of the next bike passing anyways.

I used to hitch hike a bit once upon a time, would even go out with a helmet and no bike, would always get a lift, but not today or not in these times, not one of the many bikes that past me walking with thumb out, helmet in hand stopped or even looked like stopping..... times certainly have changed.

It was about a forty minute walk back to the nearest town, one car driver did stop when I was about 2 minutes from where I was going, I thanked him for the offer then walked across the road to the hotel I was aimimg for.

Grabbed a beer, checked my phone and there was a message from a mate asking when I would be stopping by, a couple of messages and beers latter he turns with trailor in tow to go pick up my bike.

My wife. Despite everything she has to go through, she always thinks of others. We went to Starbucks the other day after getting the dog's nails trimmed. It's a treat mostly for the dog as we get them "pupachinos" for being good at PetCo. Anyway, I was waiting outside and while my wife was getting our order. There was a county sheriff in line in front of her. As he placed his order, he went to pay and my wife stopped him and paid for his order. And she always does stuff like this.

It has become tradition for us at Christmas time that when we are at the grocery store, we will find a person or family that may be going through hard times and can't afford everything in their cart. We will usually step and buy the stuff they put back after they checked out, or just pay for their whole cart. Last year was a younger couple with kids that had to put food back because they were on a very tight budget. The year before that was an older gentleman behind us with just a few groceries. We paid for his groceries and he broke down into tears because no one had ever done that for him and he had also just lost his wife of many years just a week or so prior to us doing this for him.

It's the small things in life that make the biggest impact. Like the commercial says, people won't remember what you said to them or what you did for them, but they will remember how you made them feel.
