Motorcycle math

We’ve all seen variations of this meme:

Motorcycle math

Well, in keeping with the theme of today’s post, N will soon equal N + 1 as I am about to acquire yet another project bike (imagine the missus’ eyes rolling here). This time it’s not an orphaned mid-60s Honda to keep company with the ones I already have, but rather a relatively (with an emphasis on relatively) new mid-80s Kawasaki 440LTD.

Relegated to the back of the garage by the current owner, the bike comes into my possession as a result of a casual comment on the golf course, “It’s yours if you want it.” How could anyone who considers himself a biker ever say no to that?

And so tomorrow I will be in a rental truck heading down Highway 401 to Kitchener to pick up another stray needing some TLC and a home for the winter. It’s a disease for which there is no known cure.

  3. Beautiful! Good to see that you will be helping someone to have more usable space in their garage. Clearly you are a helpful person: a philanthropist! :-)

    1. Pat - Never thought of it that way. I wonder if the philanthropy argument will hold water with she of the rolling eyes?

  5. You had to take it for sure, no question there. If you have space they will come ... But I couldn't help thinking whoa; he came all the way from Kitchener just to play a game of golf?

    1. LOL. Actually I was playing golf in Kitchener - along with some other family stuff.
