  • Dear #ATL – We can cut traffic by 20%

    Dear #ATL – We can cut traffic by 20%

    This has been my pet idea for a very long time. It is as simple as it gets and could benefit us ALL in the #ATL. If each and every one of us figured out a way to do an "Alternative Commute" just ONE DAY PER WEEK, traffic would be cut on average by 20%.

    You now say "What is an alternative commute?" Ride your bike, carpool, work from home, take Marta, ride the bus, hike, take your hover board – whatever! Just get off the road! You know I love my motorcycle, but even THAT doesn't really count.

    I challenged myself to take at least one alternative commute per week – do you have the courage to start the 20% movement? #LetsDothis!

  • Quick Wash – yeah right

    Posted on March 8th, 2016 Scott No comments

    So my motorcycle really was dirty so I decided to give it a quick wash.  So warm, so nice – let's do this!  Well, I did wash the whole bike and she looks really good – but I noticed something.  My exhaust seemed 'loose'.  I take a look and realize the joint between my "slip-on" and the bike is loose.  I try to snug it up and break the bolt.  So much for a quick wash, eh?

    I head over to AutoZone see what I can patch the bike together with.  I then think … Hey, maybe MSP is still open.  They are.  Awesome – maybe the MOTORCYCLE shop has MOTORCYCLE parts.  

    I show him my broken pipe clamp and say "do you have something like this".  He says nothing … walks out, walks back in and says "This is like that".  Hands me a "gently used" part.  He says "you can have it".  Wow… cool!  

    I need some advice on making it a bit tighter…. fancy asbestos tape? silicone? Nah – he says go have a beer and use the can to shim it out!  Well, not being a drinker – I grabbed a can of diet coke on the way home and my motorcycle is better than when I started!  

    I love that shop – great prices! INCREDIBLE service, willing to help and not try to get rich of something small like this!  If you are in the #ATL  – you should DEFINITELY check them out!
