Well thought i'd share with all. I've been driving the Midget daily 
driver all week. It now needs a bath. Either tomorrow PM or maybe Monday 
early I will be replacing the fornt suspension bushes. Having done this 
starting at 4AM for a 10AM start at an autoocross I know it can't take 
all that long. Tonight after work I took a cruise in the Midget up to 
Quakertown to get my new bed. Try that in a B!!. 

On the way back I had that old dreaded feeling you get when the pedal 
goes to the floor and the engine just drops to an idle. Yep the throttle 
cable broke. Well I was only about 2 miles from home so I thought I'd try 
t idle my way there. Unfortunately I was in the bottom of a long draw so 
I didn't figure I could make the next hill. Pulled over and grabbed the 
trusty tool kit out of the boot. Loosened the locking nut on the Weber. 
Pulled the cable tight and re-torqued the nut (imagine that a nut 
re-torquing a nut). Idles a little fast but I will swing by the cycle 
shop tomorrow to get a new one. 
BTW way on 309 North to Quakertown I saw a red RB Midget going the other 
way. I waved but really only as they were passing so I am not sure they 
saw me. Anybody on the list on 309 in a Midget at about 6:30 PM tonight??
Really only about the only LBC spotted by me all week.
