No, not me!

Some months ago, 2 ants crawled into my dash. They seemed to have some fun chasing each other around and around. They disappeared and I forgot all about them - until today.

Today I only had one ant, but it was hilarious watching it bounce off the surfaces inside the dash as I was doing some "bouncing off the rev limiter" exercises today. Poor any - I only hope that when it expires, it chooses a place in the back of the dash so I won't have to be reminded that it is there; cause if it stays up front, I will need to do a dash-ectomy.

Rather funny I thought.

Wow Tony, you must be lots faster than me.
Years ago working as a Honda CT110 mounted Postie, two snails caught up to me and attached themselves to my water bottle. I think the ants would have passed me by.

How do ants increase their population?
They up the ante...

WTF?

Now I have deadant, deadant, deadant and a live one running around inside my dash. Far out.

Remove dash and put it in your freezer for a few days.

DM, is that to see how fast the fridge really is? Or is it to kill the ants? problem is I have 3 dead ants but they died in the face of the dash and not in the back where I won't see them.

see my earlier comments re: "deadant"...

Well, time for an ant update - I still have 3 dead ants in the face of the dash. Now I am not busting my chops to get the little buggers out. Instead I welcome them on the ride with me and they are a visual indicator of the fun I am having - no bouncy, steady riding; lots bouncy, mucho fun.

The cabal can view them on the next ride, but appointments will need to be made for viewings. It's what makes Moto Guzzis unique, the're all a bit special, just like their owners
