Q: Thanks for meeting with me. Can you share what happened?

A: Sure. When you find yourself having successfully helped a friend repair their motorcycle, celebrating with Pop Rocks — that magical sugary, reactant candy from almost forgotten days of Yore — is definitely warranted!

A few days ago a friend of mine asked me to help replace the shock, shock linkage, and absorber. I hadn’t reallly been near a motorcycle since I was a teenager and a nice woman my Dad was dating had a son who gave me a ride on it, just to see what it was like.

(After I got married, the motorcycle option wasn’t an option as my wife’s mother had worked as a CNA for too many years and seen too many motorcyclists in accidents that there really was no way to recover from.)

It was cold outside but not like freezing and there were piles of leaves everywhere. We actually had to use two jacks, which I’d never done before and it was really interesting, like mechanically. We had to put one jack under the rear tire and then we put another tire jack, like the kind you use on a regular car, and we placed that on top of the rear tire, so we’d have enough space to replace the shocks and the dog bone collar.

It took us about 30 minutes or so and a ton of tools but it was actually kind of cool to see how the engine is so compressed and a LOT more accessible than a lot of motors, especially alternators, in 4-door cars.

Q: Awesome! So where do the Pop Rocks come in?

A: Ha, ha! My kids’ were given some of these when they were trick or treating and I thought that would be a great way to celebrate.

Q: OK. Great. Can you tell me if you or your friend saw a motorcycle or Pop Rocks that you liked or that you knew you needed, would you buy them — if all you had to do was like take a picture of it?

A: Hmm. Well, I wouldn’t just because I don’t drive a motorcycle but the Pop Rocks — I had those when I was a kid and where I grew up we went trick or treating, even when it was snowing.

Q: OK.

A: So Pop Rocks I would definitely buy. Yeah. Especially I guess if I was feeling nostalgic.

Q: Great. Thanks for your time!
