Yes… a long time gone: A Message from Trotsky

Helmet Camera Bilt

But, hopefully not forgotten.

It’s been a bit rough over in this part of the net, for the grand army of two members are still on a bit of a struggle.  Sadly, we mourn the loss of my P200e still, and add to it the loss of the Rattler 110, which proved ultimately not up to the task set before it.  It suffered two engine seizes proving it’s poor design and inability to handle the heat. 

But, we soldier on. 

The ‘70 of the other member of this shindig is still around, but it sits unregistered.  Hopefully soon, it will be revived and soon I myself will be back to a proper bike.  The funds have not been available, but the future is looking bright for our house.  Soon, another Stella or Vespa will grace these pages and will carry me on.  But, until then, sit tight. 

The promise of adventure will still be fulfilled.  Last season just wasn’t the right time. This next season will be. I’m sure you have seen from the other member of this “thing” that we squarely have a goal in mind. We were not able to attend Wisconsin, but San Diego… that is easy!  Also, there may be even more adventure.  But that depends on two factors: My getting a quality stable bike, and her getting her bike on the road.  Not much in the way in the grand sense I suppose…

Stay tuned.
