+1. What happened?

What was initially wrong with the bike? What broke on the way home? Do you have a waranty? Do you have towing on your insurance?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

it gets easier after you've been on the board for a while and make some friends.

you're probably surrounded by people that could have hauled your bike or given you a ride home and don't even know it yet.

oh well, things can only get better from here, right?

Leave it to Ernie to be positive.

He's got a good point. There are dozens of people here who would be happy to help you out in a jam. Lots of good folks on this board.

Life's Journey Is Not To Arrive At The Grave Safely In A Well Preserved Body, But Rather To Skid In Sideways, Totally Worn Out, Shouting "HOLY SHIT... What A Ride!"

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.
