I wish I could get motivated. There are things that I need to get done before I leave Denver around the middle of September but so far I'm unable to put together enough ambition to even start doing the things that need to be done, but its not my fault I was born with a lazy gene, a procrastination gene, and not one single ambition gene in my entire body.
I've got things I need to do to my little Beta 250 before I leave. I need to at least finish the seat so I can sit on the darn thing, and I would really like to change the rear brake lever so my right foot can reach it. And I've been needing to get a rearview mirror on it so those crazy people on quads can't sneak up behind me. But my procrastination gene is preventing me from getting started so I can't be faulted for that
I really need to grease the wheel bearings on the Arctic Fox since I haven't done it since last year. Its not that hard to do I just squirt some grease in a Zerk fitting on the hub with my grease gun, without having to take anything apart, but as simple a project as it is its not my fault that I can't get it done, my lazy gene is standing in the way.
Everything inside the Arctic Fox needs a dusting, vacuuming, and general cleaning. I don't know how it gets so dirty in here, there's dust all over everything, the dust bunnies on the floor have reached a point where I trip over them. And the bathroom, good grief ! I've seen bus station restrooms that look better than my bathroom. But I just don't seem to have the ambition to start the cleaning process, so it's really not my fault.
Usually the only thing that pulls me out of this malaise is the thought that winter is coming up and soon Denver will be covered with ice and snow. It will get so cold even the polar bears leave..... You've never seen a polar bear in Denver have you? Well that's why. And the city will be full of nutty people who drive through mountain blizzards to slide down hills with boards tied to their feet, I know it doesn't make any sense but they actually do it.
So far the only force I have found that's powerful enough to overcome my genetic deficiencies is the thought of having to live through another Colorado winter. So with that as motivation I will eventually get the Arctic Fox cleaned up, packed up, hooked up, and ready to go. And if I don't it will truly be my fault.
