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!
