Awesome write up, I'm laughing on the bus! Sorry for the troubles, Ski, but like all situations like this, good stories and memories come from it. Great day otherwise, sorry I had to leave early.

Capo - I'm thankful that it did all work out and that my first ride in a side car wasn't planned but was a cool experience.
I'm glad the the ride report was entertaining and got some chuckles.

Sprint update.
So I got word back from Dr. Ron and turns out his roadside diagnosis was correct and that the rectifier fried. "Corrosion caused too much resistance which turns into heat. Wires melted, burned into the circuit board." According to Ron so while I'm away repairs will be made and she'll back like New for the rest of the riding season.

Great news!   She'll be all ready to head to the track!

Sorry I missed you guys.  I had a pretty chilly ride down i287 to get to Washington Crossing for about 10.30.  Headed straight for the burger bar and a cup of coffee to turn my fingers pink again, only to find they'd run out and were making more - which took them the best part of 40 minutes.
Did a few laps of the bike park, and the outer loop too.  Saw lots of interesting things, but no NJRats, unfortunately.  I guess we must just have been diametrically opposed for a couple of hours.
Headed back up through New Hope too, but didn't see a flatbed, so perhaps I passed you by the side of the road... To be fair, there were lots of people waiting for each other (and clogging up the road).
Wound my way back up 202 for 70 miles in a straight line to within a mile of Pompton Lakes.  Much more fun than the Highway, and warmer in the afternoon too. 
Great run out on a Sunday.
