ratzun fratzun murdercycle

so i decide to ride the motorbike to work today
because i'm selling it soon and won't be able to do it for much longer.
and i get into the city and


the clutch cable snaps off the
mounting at the box and won't retract.

so well i call the ex to see what to do and he says

you're SOL (basically)

you can pull the cable with your fingers
start it in first gear
hang on for dear life (with your third hand) as it takes off
force it into future gears
pray that you don't have to stop and start the process all over again.

or you can pay a million dollars to get it towed.

so i pushed it the final 5 or 6 blocks to work
(have i mentioned that it's hot here)
so that i could sit in the air conditioning
and decide what to do next.

i told the boy even though i didn't want to
i knew he'd be all
"that's what you get for not selling it sooner"
no secret he hates the bike
but i still think i'm right (go figure)

it'd be worse if it happened while someone was test riding it.
