Well, it's Friday, and this being Page 13, I don't think I need to be worried, by the way today is shaping up!
I've just got back from the local Honda shop, where they rectified my chain situation without hassle, and for only a very small fee too. Had 4 or 5 guys look at how the new chain was sitting on my bike, and the fact that it was so far back on the adjusters to tighten it up - "weird" was the word of the day! Anyways, long story short, the mechanic quickly and easily took a link out, fitted the chain back on (after losing the retainer clip, LOL!) then took it off the hoist to adjust the chain to the correct tension again. Really nice guys, probably about an hour's worth of labour, and told me that my little 250 was one of the nicest they'd seen in a long time! So I'm very happy with their service, and will write up a really good customer feedback report on Kiwi Biker for them too.
Also this morning, I had a phone call from a good friend (up north), he had been talking to his boss about whether or not they might need another employee for their couriering business, he rang me to give me his bosses phone number and tell me to get in contact with him quick smart. So of course, I did, had a really good talk with the guy about all the details of how they operate, he said he'd be keen to start me as soon as I could get up there! After that phone conversation, I thought best to call the horse trainer back that had said I could work for him and apologise for having a much better offer, to which he was more than okay with, he said "you've gotta take work where you can get it". I hate disappointing people like that, but sometimes it's gotta happen. But, the cool thing is, starting as early as Tuesday next week, I'm going to be back in proper full time employment, close to my good friends again, where I belong. If you can't tell, I'm pretty stoked right now! Finally, it seems like my life is back on the right track again, if you know what I mean...! Now all I have to worry about is moving all my stuff back up to Auckland if it all pans out the way I hope!
Here's a couple of pics of the bike at Honda today...
Until next time...!
