    Default What's really good folks "Hiyadoon"

    Good people hello I'm Marc from Albertson NY. I've been riding only a full year and a half or so and like it very much. My 2000 Blast has left me stranded a few times but that's my own inexperience to blame. I've become pretty good at repair and recon. I'm immersed in telecom but my true passion is anything with a mechanical heartbeat that'll get me to and fro. A commercial driver, I an affinity for alternative fuels and turbos. Married 16 years with 3 kids...I use my Blast all year round longs it's running while I work in Brooklyn NY. When I'm happy with its repair I'll preserve it ride it and descend it to my kids or grands

    I was fortunate enough that a traffic jam pushed me off the BQE onto the service road before my header pipe loosed and drive belt bailed so I parked it and am cleaning it up now recon'ing, repairing and replacing necessary parts and using this downtime to ready it for the spring. Top end gaskets are in order and Cometic has been queried. EBC obliged my brake needs and a new clutch cable awaits... I'm on the graveyard shift presently but maybe later I'll show y'all my emergency clutch cable bandaid

    Yikes, getting run off road is no fun, glad you kept it upright.

    If you're having any issues finding parts, let us know!

    Sorry for the confusion I wasn't literally pushed off the road but figuratively.... just saying I averted traffic by exiting onto the service road

    So it was a hot ass day in May on the picket line and we picketed for hours... I'd completed a 6 hour shift and my voice hoarse.... ready to bolt(or Blast lol) start, clutch again for first gear and "&&)$@&$&, SNAP. Well to get my weekly picketing stipend we gotta report ery'day so I roll-shifted into 1st and crept through the local roads til I hit the highway and didn't stop again until my exit crept home and into the batcave for a late night session with my tools....drive the family car to Home Depot and improvised with a clevis pin and nut... batcave.....tapped clevis fed remains of clutch cable through perch and top holes of pin and threaded and tightened but against the cable and lever.....back to picket another day.
