As long as I'm posting about angst...

The Expedition blew another spark plug on Tuesday. It'll be somewhere between $1000 and $5000 to fix it, depending on what we do. We may or may not be able to get Ford to pay for some or all of the repairs, we don't know yet.

The Honda got a flat tire yesterday morning. We won't have a replacement tire for it until Friday.

My Eclipse is having the bottom end of the engine replaced again before I even got it back. Under warranty, so it's free to me, at least, but still. Apparently something failed while dyno-testing it.

My new Gran Canyon fell over in the trailer on the way home, shearing off the left mirror and punching a hole in the interior wall of the trailer with the handlebar. It was cinched down hard with ratchet straps.

The major set of problems I am dealing with at work right now are so overconstrained that I am not sure there is a solution, and I am certain that there is no good solution.

I'm probably coming down with whatever it was that had Amy so sick while I was gone. At the very least, I've been feverish and in a lot of muscular pain since yesterday afternoon.

There's some other stuff that I just don't know what to do with right now. I hope things will work out but I don't know how to help them to do so.

If you've got something good going on in your life, I'd certainly love to hear it right about now. *smile*

Current Mood: numbnumb

I do still have the '00 Superhawk with all the fun mods, and intend to ride it often, but the 2000 Gran Canyon is so much nicer for longer trips, and is offroad-capable too. I'm looking forward to riding it a bunch as well.

And yeah, I ride in pretty much any weather.

Congrats on the Ninjas. I think I'd find them cramped, m'self.

I prefer the Lotus Elise for long trips myself. Who needs to scratch or fidget? Not an option in the Elise. The entire car is poured around you and then cooled hardened. Removal of the Elise from you requires tin-snips, but you don't have to worry about parking, you can just put it in your pocket.

Still, honestly, I find my GIANT Nissan Sentra '96 way too big now that I have the Elise. The Superhawk is a behemoth, and my Ninja 250 is a roomy sport-tourer. The Elise certainly changes one's perspective. Makes the Miata look like an SUV.
