Love the file on the hook.
Day 5, I used the pen in my plus scales to write the code number of the date bits I bought at the health food store when I couldn't find their pen.

Thanks for following along Poncho and Vicman.
Day 6
I am always trying to figure out what implement to slide up and down the dirty areas of a used SAK.  I have used the tweezers, but they're not very robust.
I decided to try using the mini screwdriver with a moist paper towel wrapped around it, worked great!

I had never thought of using the mini screwdriver for that. I will use it next time I clean my SAK. Thanks for the idea FB!  :tu: :tu:

I'm trying to find even more uses for that little mini screwdriver.
Day 7

Used the mini screw driver so I didn't have to go back into the garage for the little phillips.



Used the combo tool to pry off the Piaggio badge to get to the screw behind it.



Used the magnifier to figure out which one of those silver contacts had the + next to it and which one had the -.

I just thought that the pic wasn't loading for me on my mobile :facepalm: Then next time I checked we were already on another page so I didn't think anything about it ::) :whistle:

Did you take a pic that day and forgot to post it or just forgot to take the pic :think:

Since I hold my knife with one hand and file the fingernail with the other, I didn't take a photo. 
:facepalm:  Second time I've failed one of these challenges.
Oh well....maybe third time will be a charm.  :cheers:

Day 8

Today I was out riding and my riding partner noticed my battery hose was dragging.  Thankfully the SAK came to the rescue as I didn't have any tools with me for the short ride I was taking today.  Had to unscrew the battery cover, reattach, then snug it all back down.



These are the bikes:

This is a great example of why everyone should carry a SAK. You never know when you may need it.

Great pictures FB  ..... I like the motorbikes.

Glad that your challenge is still on. :tu: :tu: :cheers:

Great photos!!!

I imagine that today was just as nice in Southern California and it is in Northern California.  Such a nice day for a ride!  I rode for 30+ years before selling my last bike (1100cc / 121 horse power).  Frequently our rides would take us along the coast and I would glance in the rear view mirror to see my wife's helmet turned in the direction of the ocean.  :)

Since every bike I ever owned had a built-in tool kit compartment, I never had the MacGyver experience of whipping out a trusty SAK to make a small adjustment or remove the engine to fashion an ultra-light flying machine for an escape.  :)

NorCal, these Symba's have a whopping 6.7 horsepower, 101cc engine.  No clutch, just auto-shift, 4 speeds.  I totally dig little motorbikes.
Learned to ride on a Honda 70...then I got a Puch moped as a teenager, then a Yamaha 125 Enduro for high school....then started driving cars, so I took a break from riding.
But now I'm back and love vintage Hondas and Modern Vespas.  These Symbas are 2015, so they're modern electronics which is helpful.
I cannot imagine 121 horse power!  I rode my 21 horse power Vespa GTS250 i.e. 600 miles to Baja Calif. and back and that seemed like a lot of power to me.

Last I checked, anything 15 horse or above is freeway legal.  Your 21 horse Vespa is perfectly fine for navigating freeways and enjoying short & long rides.  The extra power of a large bike with top and side cases is very helpful for carrying a passenger, "luggage" and for passing acceleration.  Mine was water cooled and the radiator and shaft drive gave it an automobile-like ride performance plus long-term reliability.  We especially appreciated the fairing for creating a relatively quiet pocket of air.

I really like how the various SAK threads reveal other areas of life experience and enjoyment.  Thanks for sharing yours!

My dad was a used car dealer in the late 1960's and early 1970's and he sold new Vespas for a couple of years.

When I was in high school Hondas were just starting to become popular and there were a lot of Honda motorbikes around town that looked like the Symba you ride. I wanted one so bad.  I eventually got a Honda Sport 160 and loved riding it. Later I got  a Harley 250cc, and then a Honda 350cc. It is relaxing to just get out on a back road where there is not a lot of traffic and just enjoy the ride.

Glad you to see you having fun on your motorbike.

Thanks Vicman!  The Symba and little ones are mostly for back trail riding.
This modern Vespa has 21 horsepower, it's the one I took down to Baja since it's quite capable of keeping up with traffic.  It's only 250cc though.

Another good use for the hook.

I have only seen the hook with the file on back in pictures. All the hooks on my Vics are smooth on the back.

I think they should put the file on the back of all hooks. It would be handy. :tu:
