Getting Closer

Well this pain in the ass car is almost done. It seems that it doesn't want to leave but it doesn't understand I am sick of looking at it and I want it gone.

After the happy dance of it starting late last week it started to show some of it's other problems. The worst being the electronic throttle control. Of course the problem is part design flaw and part having been torn all apart. The bad design part is the wiring used in this device was mandated by the European Nation to be easily recyclable. Only problem is it did just that and started to recycle itself under the hood as the car aged. Once this happens and the harness gets moved like it did while I had the engine out and all apart,the insulation falls off shorting the harness out ending the life of the almost dead part. It's a cause and affect kind of thing. So what's another grand after spending over 5K now? Ugh.

Other news. It looks like ol' man winter has finally decided it is time to get out of Dodge. It seems official now... spring is here! Nice day here and I need to go for a ride just to clear my head and enjoy the sound and feel of my bike. At this point I don't even care where just as long as it is no where close to here. After having a little bomb shell dropped on me this morning I think it is just the ticket I need.

I'll try to blog a little more often, not that my life is all that exciting or I think anyone really cares.
