I want to thank ali and fuji for...well...getting fucked. Thumbs up Ali!! Learned that one in the Persian Gulf. Oh...I'm sorry...it's O-L-I!! Just move that over two fingers, my boy.
Anyway thanks Fred. My odo probably is in miles. But my dealer insists its in mph and Tomos USA remains mute on the issue. They probably hope no one notices so the warranties on their bikes will appear to lapse sooner. That's pretty low down if you ask me, even for a Recovering Bolshevik.
[Somebody around these parts said that the odo is in neither miles nor kilometers. It's in money.]
This bike will rise again. It'll get it fixed and probably get it sold. And I'll probably buy that Honda Metropolitan I PASSED ON to buy my crappy Tomos. And the learning experience has been great. I'll be that much better off when I buy a good Japanese bike. That's right...the Metropolitan is still Made In Japan!
