The details of that ride will be posted soon.
In the meantime, it gives me great pleasure to introduce Mike Evans, assuming a position he held when the local Suzuki dealer informed him it would cost $1200 to rebuild the four carbs on his motorcycle, which abruptly quit running three miles from his house.
My good friend Mike Evans -- who never misses an opportunity to point out my
character flaws, limited communications skills, and even more limited riding ability --
is delivered into my hands when his "Suzuki" is loaded onto my trailer, in a mechanical coma.
Evans demonstrates the position he assumed when presented the estimate to rebuild 4 carbs.

It was my delight to tow Mike back to the barn, showing his “Suzy” in its natural habitat -- on my trailer. (See Mike, there is justice in this world.) According to Evans, the riding position on this bike has enabled him to accept the dealer’s anal probe while keeping a relatively smiling face. Either that, or this may not be about motorcycle repair.
