    So I took out my Altitude 70 today for some wald cruising and to go buy Flogging Molly tickets. I get up the monster hill by my house, thing is creaking all the time. I just had it pulled apart and went through almost everything...cleaning, greasing, torqueing etc. R hand pedal seems to be creaking like my Aunt Ednas arthritic hip...I look at it, seems fine. I think didn't do anything to it, prolly dry grease, need to overhaul later. Gets worse, I stop a mile later, reach down and wiggle the spindle and find the damn crank about to come off in my hand. Guess who didnt tighten quite everything? Yeah...me. Dumas, 1 ea. So I look in bag for multi tool, and have none. Guess who forgot to put a multi tool bck in his Camel back? Yeah...me. Dumas, 1 ea.
    Luckily its all downhill home, so I shred a few leaves down to the house and tighten her down and head out again.

    Didnt get the damn tickets though, gotta go online for them...stupid German banks...

    Lucky!

    I've seen Flogging Molly twice and they were two of the most fun shows I have ever been to.

    I loosened the lug nuts on my car wheels to check the brakes, got distracted and neglected to tighten one side back down. Drove to work for two days wondering why my rear end was clunking.

    YOUR MOVE.

    Drove with one front wheel loose for a week. Lucky the bolts didn't snap... This was thanks to a shop though, not my own doing. Cost $115 to fix at the dealer (thought suspension component was shot so brought in for warranty. Loose lug nuts aren't covered by warranty :rofl:).

    I found a wasps nest in the tree in my backyard. I took the tree trimmer and cut it down. It fell into my neighbors yard. I put a garbage can over it. I saw no wasps coming out of it.

    Flogging Molly shows are always a good time. The electric guitarist is from Rochester so when ever they play here they almost always sell out the venue. Once they even put on an impromtu acoustic show at one of the bars he used to frequent.
