The Unmistakable Beat

A couple of years ago, I had a morning drill everyday:

    Take Kerrigan off her stand and straddle her, hold the decompression switch. Press the kick just till you feel the piston reaching the Top Dead Center, hold the position. Let go of the decompression switch, lift the choke-valve, let go the accelerator, and very gently push the kick all the way down. Then, sweet music – the unmistakable “Thump-Thump-Thump-Thump”.

Over the past four years, we got another two-wheeler, and then a car. In short, I wasn’t riding Kerrigan everyday. With the onset of the last monsoon, she just stood frozen in the parking lot, naked to the elements; but no more.

Today I had some people take her away for an overhaul. They’ve promised to set her right in another 4 days time – there’s a few things wrong with her internals.

I just can’t wait to start the morning drills again.
