Why do I do these things?

Posted 12-15-2008 at 07:29 PM by Urban Wheeler

I bought my first motorcycle in '95. I rode that one for a couple years, traded it in on a new Ninja, and rode that for a few years. I was bikeless for 2 or 3 years until 2000 when I was given my granddad's old bike. I rode that for 8 years when I started to get serious about finding a new bike. I found what I thought I wanted, a CB750. It's a '73, and it's got a kickstarter. It's nicer in the way that it is bigger and I can stretch out on it, but it doesn't have the power that I would like,...

How will technology change the past?

Posted 07-30-2008 at 08:45 PM by Urban Wheeler

I read an article the other day about historical figures and how we know much about them. Many of these people had kept their correspondence, pictures, letters, etc. It's a look into the mind of famous figures, not only in what they say, but how they write and in their penmanship. Now that there is email, cell phones, digital pictures, and digital video, how will future historians see today? There won't be any hard copies of handwriting samples, no faded polaroids, and no shaky 8mm film footage....

I don't want to jinx it

All my life things haven't gone quite right. In fact, what I consider normal most would consider bad. Just about the time things start to go well, something happens and it all goes to shit. could it be karma, or am I subconsciously fucking myself? I don't know. It's easy to blame someone else, or to blame an abstract concept, but hard to look within yourself and find the problem. Even harder is to fix the problem, since you have lived it so long it is second nature to keep doing it.

No matter how thorough I am..

I always seem to forget something until I'm all done.
The other day I had the tank off my bike so I could put the choke cable back on. I was in the middle of something else when I was doing this, and later when I putting the seat back on I noticed that I didn't have the fuel line on. On it goes. Today I left the house and the bike started running badly. I looked down and saw that I forgot to turn the fuel back on. Good thing I had seen that the fuel line was off before I went riding.

My life as a truck driver.

Posted 06-07-2008 at 07:35 AM by Urban Wheeler

Last weekend I was on my way home from Tennessee when we stopped at a rest area in Kentucky. As I walked around stretching my legs I was reminded of an incident that could have resulted in mayhem, angry truck drivers, and a large towing bill...

I had stopped at a rest area for a mid day nap. It was a nice day so I shut off the truck and opened the vents for the fresh air. I don't know how long I slept, but when I woke I went inside to the restroom and then to the vending machines....
