It pays to be nice
« on: May 15, 2007, 07:31:07 PM »
Awhile back I had purchased some parts from an overseas eBayer.... It was a long tedious process, but well worth it it in the long run...

anyway, he wanted a contact over here that in case he wanted some parts, and the seller wouldn't ship overseas, would I help him out?     sure... I'm a nice guy  ::)

one day out of the blue he emails me and says I need to pay for the manual he bought (guy has dozens of vintage old Yamahas I guess) so I contact the seller, said I'll pay for it and to ship it to me so I can ship it to "Mr. X"

he paypals me the money and everyone is happy.....

well today out of the blue I come home from work tonight and found a present for me.
Mr. X sent me a Euro XZ550 handbook (in English, French and German....... and this >>>>

If you have an accident on a motorcycle, it's always your fault. Tough call, but it has to be that way. You're in the right, and dead -on a bike. The principle is not to have any accident. If you're involved in an an accident, it's because you did not anticipate. Then, by default, you failed.

i wasent trying to be rude. what i ment was i copied the jpeg. it would look good on a t-shirt or it would look sweet on a letter head. also looks pretty nice as a background. ;D what are the chances we could get it on a shirt. sold on the store

a better jpeg would be cool too.
