And some of us don't run or jump anymore!!
It's also hard to run and jump when you're in 6 inches of mud.

I should clarify slow jog and put my left foot on peg carefully put right leg over as I have had my AARP card for three years now.
Under ideal conditions, sit on the seat and paddle with your feet twice, and then pop it in 2nd, and if you have the speed, and not super loose gravel, and an engine that wants to start anyway. you have fire. If not do it again under less ideal condtions (oh this time turn on the juice - i.e. the kill switch should not be depressed. Tom
