Just put my bike back into the shop. The chain is a bit loose, the sprocket is worn down, and I need new tires. Would hate to be somewhere in Missouri with a broken chain or flat tires!
And you know what would happen then? Some lady in a business suit driving a Lexus would drive by, offer me a ride, then tell me how she secretly dresses up in leather, hops on a Harley, and drives around town giving the locals an eyeful!
"Oh, and while your bike is in the shop, would you like to come to my place for awhile? I have a thing for bikers!"
"Uh, no ma'am, I better not. I'm on a diet."
Having to say no to a biker babe in leather would just ruin the whole ride.
Best to keep the chain and tires in good repair.
