My First Defeat

Yesterday I suffered from my first defeat in scooter maintenance. It all started on my way to work. I was riding along and everything was going fine, I couldn’t ask for a nicer morning to ride to work. The sun was coming up, there was a nice wind following me and the traffic was light. Everything was going great until… I came to a stop sign and stalled. It’s not the the first time I have stalled at a stop sign but it was the first time in a long long time. I was luckily I broke down right next to a 7/11… so I guess thank heaven. I pulled in to take a quick look and see what was going on and at first glance I didn’t see anything.

Well I needed to get to work so I texted my wife… no reply… I texted a friend and got an immediate reply. He was on his way to pick me up and get me to work as soon as possible. Soon as possible was unfortunately not quick enough to be there on time but at least.

I went threw the day trying to figure out what was wrong with my scooter and came up with a few ideas I wanted to check as soon as I got out of work and back to 7/11 to start working on my bike. After working about 2 to 3 hours on my bike… lost track of time I made no progress and had to finally give up and head home.

This morning I rented a truck and took Pepe II to the shop. I am feeling very defeated by the scooter at this moment in time but will keep you all posted on what I find out as soon as I find out.
