Table of Contents: Lectra Diary
I’ve split up the diary into several sections, latest entries at the end.
- The Courtship: how I came to buy an EMB Lectra.
- The First Two Months: what I found out about it during the first two months of ownership.
- Summer 1999: what happened and how it performed during its first punishing summer in Tucson.
- Spring 2000: the Lectra and the Arizona tax credit, among other things.
- January 2001: how I faced the Leaking Acid Horror.
- February 2001: how I finally replaced my entire battery pack.
- Spring 2002: “Trial by Parts” - facing and surviving major part replacement.
- Fall 2002: Fire! End of the line for my toasted Lectra.
- Winter 2002: What happened with insurance, and my current and future plans.
- January 2003: Shakedown. Arizona looks for someone to squeeze for its screw-ups, and it’s me.
- Citizen Jones: In which I hit the books to determine whether or not me and my Lectra have to take the fall.
- The End of the Matter: Arizona
respects my research and leaves me alone: the 1999 law did not exclude motorcycles!
