    Rob, why had that bike been sitting for that long?

    Life story. But I had ridden it for a full decade. And the beautiful, original paint tank was safe and warm inside the house.

    Huh. Okay. I've never had a motorcycle that didn't get ridden regularly (okay, with the exception of my brother's CB900f, which is in the process of an astoundingly slow restoration).

    Ugh, the hammer trick. When I bought a parts bike a few years ago I made the mistake of squeezing the front brake, which then refused to release. The seller did the hammer trick. It worked, but knocked the bobbins on the rotors loose.

    When consulting the magic 8 ball for advice, one must first ask it "will your answers be accurate?"
