That could have been worse!

Headed out to a benefit last night for a friend of a friend that got hurt on the job.Got a mile from my buddy's garage rolling 5 deep and the chain on the old Trumpet snapped.Of course we do start off the line at that light like it was a drag strip hittin mach one in under 2 sec but I doubt that was the reason...Ya right!Well I got set up with a truck to get it back to the house and the fellas headed north to the party,turns out the guy had a lot of friends cause they said there were over 200 bikes,and more crazy ass bikers than that.Good time from the sounds of it but I wouldn't know,I spent the night with my buddy's fam out in the back yard watching the Celtics game and getting quite shit faced.I tried getting the chain out when I got there but it was locked up on the sprocket and the and the case it self where it punched through.Any way I got up early and put it up on his lift.After some coffee and a little deliberation we started wrenching on it.Managed to get it loose and bango,it fell free.I re-ran it on the sprockets,popped in a new master link and took her out for a test run.Good enough, it got me home.As far as the hole,I'll get to it another day when I'm not ridin it...maybe in Jan.!
