Hi guys, i'd like to make a survey.

What/where do you guys eat in between tuning appointments? Do you pack your own sandwich / hot dogs, or eat out at burgerKing? Hang out at McDonalds, snaking their golden fries?? Rest in a caravan?

For me, i'm riding a Yamaha Majesty 250. I eat out at foodcourt or "coffeeshop". I often gets stomach ache after eating oily food and need to find a rest room... hehehe luckily there are GasStation everywhere... and toilets at condo pool side.

If i finish early, i'll try to call the next custome if i can come early. Sometimes they can't.
Unlike having a car, i can't rest in the listening to radio.

Who else tune riding a scooter or motorcycle?

Sometimes in the winter I'll bring food, becouse I can leave it in my car. In the summer I'm at the mercy of what sounds good to me when I have a chance to grab it. I have done a decent job of finding the clean restrooms in the towns I serve. As far as riding a motorcycle the thought hasn't crossed my mind. I carry to many tools with me becouse of the large area I service. I'd have to pull a trailer behind the bike.

Hot Dogs? McDonalds? That stuff will kill you. I pack some Power Bars, an organic apple or stop at the grocery store and get some yogurt and such. Usually you can walk out of the store pretty cheap and just as fast as "fast food."

Shop organic, you'll live with less problems.

I pack a cooler. Foil packs of tuna or chicken, or easy open cans, protein bars, bottles of water, Cheeze sticks, cans of fruit, or the real thing. I prefer to have something small between each tuning to keep my energy up. I schedule every two hours, so there's often no time to stop for a sit down meal. Fast food places are good for a bathroom and a salad. I bring a water bottle with me into the houses, especially in the summer - and If I'm tuning multiple pianos in a school or church, I'll bring some power bars too.

When I'm on the road I always have to eat out. No matter how much I've already eaten, I can't seem to resist the urge to eat in the car. Lately though, I'm doing a less McDethalds, and more Subway type places.

Yeah, thank. I know fast food isn't good for the longevity of mankind.. hehehe
Heard about the Fats-Free Fries joke?
You pay for the potatoes, the fats comes along free!!! hahaha

Now i know why my tuning effciency drops after a few sessions, the carbo level drops and pin control drops - there seem to be a co-relation!

I like tuna sandwich and egg mayonise too..
Thank for all your inputs, it was fun sharing this kind of non technical topics, more like the daily body maintenance stuff.

The fats are free!!!! Hahahahaha

That's not a joke, that's the way the corporate executives of our food companies actually think. After all the largest one was owned by the tobacco companies until this year.

Keith,

Unfortunately, you're right. Eating in this day and age can be a minefield.

I bring the faithful Igloo cooler and load it with water, energy bars, veggie burgers or turkey or chicken, carrots and other veggies, 2-3 pieces of fruit. If I go by a Peet's during the day, I'll grab a cuppa joe.

Like Bob and Keith, I prefer to graze throughout the day. That way I don't go into a coma while tuning while my body tries to digest a 1500 calorie meal...

The other respondents make good points. A fast food "meal" that includes fries and a soda are not at all good nutrition. Did you know that soft drinks contain the equivalent of one teaspoon of sugar per ounce? This causes the pancreas to go into overdrive to produce enough insulin to process the sugar. Furthermore, (at least in North America), it is not sugar in the soft drinks but high fructose corn syrup which further stimulates the production of insulin. This causes one to have energy peaks followed by fatigue and a feeling of hunger even though too many calories have already been consumed. It is precisely what the marketers of fast food want you to feel to keep you coming back for more.

I know some technicians in large cities who use a motorcycle or bicycle to go to appointments. They can more easily maneuver in stalled or slow traffic. I also carry a cooler in summer with a reusable ice block to keep things cool. In Winter, I put items in the cooler to keep them from getting too cold. I also prefer to stop and get a sandwich or other items from a market when I must. On the rare occasion that I choose McDonald's because of the very rapid service, I order a sandwich and milk (rather than a soft drink) and skip the fries. If I follow that with an apple or a banana, it is just as satisfying but does not produce the mood swings that high fat and high sugar consumption do.

1995 I bought a new Kawsaki Vulcan 750. Rigged it with saddle bags, belly bag, mapcases, rain gear, windsheild. Had leathers, Duo-Tek helmet, boots and gloves. Most of the summer I rode with shorts and tennis shoes. Tuning is a back intensive labor and so is holding onto bike handlebars for 50-100 miles in a day. Many times I entered a home looking like a slightly stained and drowned rat. I gave it up after 30K miles. But I STILL have customers who ask if "yer ridin' yer Harley today?" In the mid 70's I rode Chicago's lakefront and worked tuning the Gold Coast, downtown and North side neighborhoods on a Motobecane, (French road bicycle now made in Tawian.) Most people would insist I bring the bike into their apartments and not chain it up outside. Now I drive a SUV with a sunroof.

I'm still stuck eating at Mc D's, god help me. I don't have the patience or time to sit down at a decent meal. THank GOd for nice, clean church bathrooms.

Anyone else ever been offered odd food from a customer? I once was asked to join a couple for lunch while I was tuning. I kindly declined becouse of the horrible smell coming out of there kitchen, I never found out what the were cooking, probably a good thing.

Yeah, my girlfriend, Ha, not right now. I make the apples and yogurt myself. Even put them in a bag sometimes. American women are not like asian women.

As soon as I wake up in the morning, before anything I drink 1.5 liters of water, consume it in 15 minutes. That is water therapy. All the food that you had eaten the night before turns into acid while you are sleeping. There's no more solids left. The idea is to flush out all the acid to cleanse your whole system. You must fill your stomach with water to the max to pressure out the acids just like the filled tank of a toilet bowl flushing the waste down the drain. If you do this religiously everyday for months or years, you may not need medication for various illnesses or diseases.

An hour or 2 after the water therapy I stop by a bakery to have 2 croissants and a fruit juice. It's enough to keep me going for many hours, then some crackers when I feel hungry. The main meal is taken in the afternoon when I reach home to eat what my wify has prepared.

On emergency cases when I feel sleepy before a tuning job (I'm sure I'll get a lot of scolding from many of you) I drink a can of Red Bull. I know it isn't healthy but it really helps when I need it.

Drinking that much water all at once causes a salt imbalance. The working pressure of the cell is determined by the sodium/potassium ratio. The sodium is in the blood and the potassium in the cell causes a water pump action that keeps the cell walls from collapsing. Diluting the salts in the blood will cause the cells to bloat and then dump potassium to stay alive. The potassium deficency causes fatigue, confusion, cramps and not good blood pressure.
Runners and bicyclists have found that adding sport electrolytes in a diluted form to the water when hydrating improves performance.

I've been doing it for over a year with only positive results. My friend introduced me this program after indulging for three straight years that helped him avoid a gall bladder surgery.

Since I practice in-vehicle eating, I often wear my shop apron as a bib while driving. I hate getting to a customer's house with food stains on my shirt...
