Moped Motion!

May 8, 2012 in Ramblings

I’ve been trying to solve the engine problems with my bike for the past 3 weeks. The noise is getting louder and the bike is leaking oil profusely. I can’t afford a new bike and a $1,000 engine repair bill would have been a big financial hit. A company in Athens, GA. (Moped Motion) helped me out a while back with some parts. Below is a copy/paste from a post I just wrote. I just posted this on my favorite Honda Ruckus website totalruckus.com

MOPED MOTION ROOOOOOOOCKS

OUT OF DESPERATION, I CALLED JASON HOPING FOR A MIRACLE…THOUGHT TO MYSELF “MAYBE HE HAS A BRAND NEW SHINY 2011 OR 2012 ENGINE JUST SITTING THERE THAT HE COULD SELL ME CHEAP”.

TOM: HEY J, HOW ARE YA? YOU WOULDN’T HAPPEN TO HAVE A BRAND NEW RUCK ENGINE LAYING AROUND WOULD YA? I’M DESPERATE.

JASON: UH, YA…GOT ONE SITTING RIGHT HERE. 2011. NEW. PERFECT.

TOM: REALLY!?!?!?!? HOW MUCH YOU WANT FOR IT!?!??!

JASON: JUST SHIP ME THE OLD ONE.

TOM: NO REALLY, LET ME GIVE YOU SOMETHING FOR IT. YOU’RE IN BUSINESS. I WANT YOU TO MAKE SOMETHING OFF OF IT.

JASON: NOPE. JUST SEND ME THE OLD ONE. I’LL SHIP IT TODAY AND YOU SHOULD HAVE IT TOMORROW.

TOM: WHAT!?!? THAT’S AWESOME!!! THANK YOU JASON!!!!!

So I immediately pay the miracle forward. I found a counseling center just blocks from Moped Motion’s retail store. I called and made a donation on the behalf of Jason and Moped Motion. This counseling center provides FREE counseling to children that have been sexually abused.

Then I called the Athens Banner Herald…the local paper in Jason’s town. I spoke to a reporter and told them about the selfless act of kindness! THANK YOU JASON!
