Wake Up

“Brothers and sisters, we should not allow this pride of hatred and scapegoating to infect the rest of the country. And one of the ways we could do that, is to stop it in Arizona. SB1070 is not only a racist law, it is a divisive law. And the millions who sign it into law are doing something that I view is an insult to our collective intelligence. What they are saying, is that our intelligent sisters in our migrant legal community are the problem. But they are the ones causing the economic problems. But the names of the people who are creating this economic crisis are not Garcia, Martinez, dela Rocha, or Morello… The names of the people who are creating this crisis are the hands of Goldman Sachs and AIG, and corporate America. They are the ones who took the jobs out of the country and then tried to blame it on our brothers and sisters suffering in Arizona for the problems. Well tonight, and every night, we need to step up and defend the rights of our brothers and sisters. Si se puede..

Si se puede! So wake up!! Wake up!!”

My birthday gift to myself. This will be an epic weekend.

Hole

It’s starting to heat up here in the SFV, with temps topping 100F. I’ve been slathering on sunblock and taking the Vespa out to work the entire week. There are summers that feel like you’re going through a blow dryer when you ride, but thankfully it hasn’t been as brutal. Yet.

Starting to break in a new helmet, Shoei J-Wing in Anthracite. It’s night and day compared to the old piece of junk on my head. Huge difference a well fitted helmet makes, not only with wind noise but also with buffeting.

A weird thing happened yesterday. I noticed a small droplet on my left shoe, and thought nothing of it until this morning when I saw that it burned a hole right through my sneakers. Only then that I realized it’s battery acid! I replaced the scooter battery a few months ago, which comes ‘dry’, and a bottle of sulphuric acid that you mix in with some distilled water. It was over the fill line when we installed it, so it must’ve leaked out from the vent hose, and ate through my shoe. Nice.

Opposable Thumbs FTW
