I was hoping to get lots of pictures taken today, but while driving along the highway my bike just died.. sniff.. well what actually happened was the belt that moves the wheels got chewed to bits when it moved out of its slot.. so now the bike is parked until Monday when my mechanic opens.. not good..but, the sun is shining, so how bad can it be..
