Very first real ride on my 1980 Kawasaki KZ 750.  I spent about a week learning to ride just back and forth on the block.

I leave the house and get onto a service road that ends about a mile or so in a traffic signal where you can only make a right or left turn.  Straight is into oncoming traffic and even that isn't directly straight, it's just off to the left.  To the slight right is the top of an overpass.

About half way to the light the bike goes crazy and the throttle sticks wide open.  I have zero experience on a bike and it is a miracle I was able to get the bike into neutral and shut it off in time.

What's wild is that hours before I was speaking to someone who had been riding for time and he said just remember no matter what happens you can always pull the clutch and shut it down and it just popped into my head.  It's the only thing that saved my life.  If I had even breathed on the brakes it would have been game over.

Later I would find out that due to the long time the bike had spent in storage (it only had 900 miles on it when I bough it in 2003) the gaskets for the carburetors had dried out and the first time I cracked the throttle they simply disintegrated and started feeding the engine massive amounts of air.  The bike did the only thing it could do!


I only have a signature because I'm allowed.

Oh, no doubt my life was ruined after I realized I could have been a millonaire if I bought BTC back in the time when I heard about it in 2009. Now im forever traumatized for life. Thanks BTC  Cool
Now i'll have to wait 10 years to make some decent gains, oh well.

I've had moments where I've bought altcoins and I could have easily made a couple of BTC's from nothing if I had just been patient.
