The next morning, I took off on my daily beater, a '90 Honda VTR 250, in the rain for my house in Hicksville, N.Y. to unpack and pack and head for JFK to fly to the IOM. About 40 miles into the trip as the rain is starting to abate, the motor died. It would start and idle, but opening the throttle at all or putting it in gear would cause it to die. I called my good friend Carlos Escudero, owner of Solo Moto, and he had nothing better to do on Memorial Day than drive up from Greenwich with his van and pick me up. This added a bit of tension to the day but I still made my flight with plenty of time. I'm posting this from the Dublin airport as I wait for my flight to the IOM
