It s going to be a beautiful day here in sunny Arizona. The weather man is calling for sunny skies and a high of 75° today. Perfect riding weather. BACA is holding a child ride today, so it really is the perfect day. Instead of taking pics during this day, I will give you a preview of how our day will go: There will be none of this... Due to this... Unfortunately, the bike is down. Really down this time. There will be no MacGuyvering out of this one. I don't know the technical/mechanical names of everything, but I know clutch basket. The thing with magnets on it has no more magnets on it, and that's bad. Bikie no run without magnets. Addtionally, I know this isn't a simple $30 fix. This is a $350 fix, which unfortunately is not in the budget any time soon. The really bad part is, this is Big D's only form of transportation. So hopefully, people will need a lot of work done on their bikes, and they will bring them here for him to fix, and pay him generously. I'm hoping he can find someone with this part he needs who is willing to trade...we've got lots to trade. But for now, we're stuck in the cage. :( Doesn't she look sad and lonely up there on that lift?
