Despite my damaged wing, I had to start moving toward getting the Vespa back on the road. You only need one hand for the Allen wrench, so I pulled the busted tail rack off with my arm in a sling.

If my wife had caught me, I would be in big trouble.

Here is the damage to my helmet.


And tragically, the hitch platform I bought to take the Vespa to Arizona arrived, but the Vespa won’t be making the trip. I can’t bear to open the box.
