fuckin' damn THINGIE ! ! ! ! !

stripped a bolt in the rear fender last year - it worked itself a tad loose - when I went to remove it - snap!!! -
so I drilled it out, twas a piece of cake - insert tap and after a turn or two - snap!!! -
can't drill that out -
thought about a new fender but - where's the fun in that so -
angle grinder to take the thingie off - weld on a new thingie - sand, prime, paint - maybe, except -
that fucking thingie - I forgot it's damn name!!! -
a little help!!! -
it's a - drawing a blank - starts with b or f - as in FUCK!!!!!! -
stood by a starbux so Goose could snap a pic - that's where I left my friggin' grey matter dammit!!!
FUCKING FRAPPYWHIPPEDSHIT!!!!!!

I have no idea what they would call thingie's on the thingie you ride..But wrenching on it will get you a few biker points..Starbucks could cure the memory problem you got but they don't serve Roo's..No thumbs you can't hold the cup and stick your pinkie in the air..Hey Tat's 3am we can have a cup in a few..

Zirconium Nitrate drill bits will turn a broken tap into powder, if ya got something more valuable than a thingie your tryin to save.Takes a steady hand,& patients. I'd recommend Doin starbux after the task.

got a drill press - I'll pass on the starbux - zirconium nitrate - is them those thingies what they sell on that home shopping thingie on the cable??? - if I get the tap out I can just - snap another off??

Last time I needed one.Orchard supply (hardware store).Not to pricey. If ya get the tap out. Mount the thingy back on to the do giz, & run a 1/4 lag bolt thru it. If it pokes thru the other side just bend it over like a bent nail

I'll drill it out - I can always slide a bolt in through the inside of the fender and then the rail and then the bag - thanks DT

Free the Thingie one , reminds me of a tool we use over here called a Easi Out once you break one of those it would be easier to remove it with a 105mm howitzer shell there 10 times harder than any know drill bit , Might be eaiser to engrave the thingie with a Genuine part number then everyone will wan't one hell you may even start a fashion

thingie's still got a tap in it, mq - I'm in no hurry - it snapped last winter - there's a bolt through the fender rail which keeps the back end of one bag in place - gonna need to put that bolt through the drilled out thingie if I ever ride two-up - or I can get the t-shirt cuz the bitch will fall off - just sayin'
