This is Dennis Sharon from Connecticut. He is riding a BMW. one day 5 minutes before start time his float fails and he can not start. He walks over and signs in and then goes back and takes out the float and solders it and makes his time for the day. The next day the float failed again. He drove for awhile using his petcock as the float and then said enough. He hitchhiked 3 miles back to a small town and goes to 3 service stations until he finds a soldering iron. He repaired the float, hitch hikes back to his bike and still gets in on time that day.
