A short, horrid bikeless period

Two weeks ago, I was changing the Speed Triple's oil and managed to crack the oil pan. Had her towed, ordered parts and persevered with one bike. Then yesterday as I was leaving for work, the DRZ's chain broke.

All of this led to the realization of how much motorcycling has meant to me again, over the last couple of years. The bike's represent freedom and adventure to me. In particular, this weekend has been the best so far this year for riding and I found the lack of a motorcycle to ride stifling.

Fortunately, the Speed Triple's repairs were completed today and I have a bike to ride for the rest of the weekend. And what a bike! I still feel that the Speed Triple is the most awesome bike out there and I am glad to have her back.
