The Danger of Doing Nothing

R.A.G.E.You’ve no doubt heard the story of the frog in boiling water.  If you drop a frog into boiling water, it immediately jumps out (or so the story goes).  However, if you put a frog in a pot of room-temperature water, and then bring the water to a boil very, very slowly, the frog will stay in the water until it dies.  It’s an odd experiment that seems eerily similar to what we are experiencing with our private vehicle insurance rates in Saskatchewan.

Sometimes we over think things

bad Uncle MonkeySometimes we over think things. We lose the big picture trying to fill in all the little details missing what is right before us. I was recently talking with someone who was looking to build a simple bobber project. His requirements were pretty broad - air cooled V-twin with a chain.

The Monkey Report April 3rd, 2014

bad Uncle MonkeyMy friend was down this weekend. As we waited in my garage for a young gentleman to look at Mrs. Monkey old bike he asked this and that about my bikes. I told him about my plans for the missus's new HondaMatic, how it worked, how it would look when it was done. I talked endlessly about the RoadKing explaining how the parts fit together, what my hopes and dreams would be for the bike when it was finished. We talked about Snow White and how much I was looking forward to getting her back on the road in the upcoming weeks.

The Monkey Report March 13th, 2014

bad Uncle MonkeySpinning wrenches on bikes is therapy right up there with rolling on the miles across this great country. We all like to tinker with our bikes making them faster, making them prettier, making sure everything is as perfect as possible. The previous owner had assure Mrs. Monkey the HondaMatic had spent the last ten years under a cover in a shed but it obviously spent the majority of its life out in the elements.
