I write stuff. A lot of it is about cars and motorcycles.

Bikeless

Yesterday, when I was picking up a prescription at the drive-through window at my pharmacy, my FJR died. The engine quit, and everything went dead except for the instrument panel, where every light came on, and the fuel level LCD started flashing. Turning the motor off and taking the key out did nothing.  Everything stayed lit up.  Then a few minutes later, everything turned off, and I was able to re-insert the key, and start her right up.  No further problems yesterday or for the first part of today.  Then, this afternoon, as I was driving home, it happened again at a stoplight. So, I crossed my fingers and headed directly for the motorcycle shop.

Once I got there, they played around with it, and were able to reproduce it several times.

So, the bike is in the shop, and I they won’t even be able to look at it until Monday.  They will be taking $100 just to diagnose the problem, so I’m bikeless until sometime next week.
