Just got my motorcycle back from the shop.
Nothing really wrong with it, just a cranky chain and bald tires.
Had to go without it for a few days, which is frustrating, because I had to rely on family and friends to get me to work and home.
I guess I could have called in sick --
"Hey, boss lady? I won't be coming in for the rest of the week. My motorcycle is a bit under the weather."
-- but I doubt that would have gone over very well.
But, I got my bike back, the chain is cranking like it should, and my tires are back to round.
It's almost like having a new bike.
