I just finished a book that all you guys should read, if you haven't already - it's called Leanings by Peter Egan, a columnist for Cycle World. It's a compilation of stories he's written over the years. Amazing writer, great stories, and some wonderful bikes. After finishing it, all I wanted to do was get a classic bike and hightail it off on a road trip adventure.

Im thinking about building it in AZ so I can go fenderless. Its a 750 engine so Im hoping that it can turn some seriously larger tires with a nice thick white wall.

If I ever get photo shop I might whip something up.

Cheers

Ryan

I've had that book for a couple of years now but haven't gotten around to reading it yet. I've always enjoyed reading his columns.

Same thing happened to me. I had to buy a sealed battery for a suzuki DRZ 400 and they wanted 175 and 150 in town at two different places. I bought one on ebay for 55 shipped

Hey, nice bobber. I like the new and improved rake on the front end..looks like it's doing about ninety-six miles per hour sitting there. I was wondering what happened to the seat from my brother's Sting Ray that went missing back in the sixties. Bike looks slick. I like to see out-of-the-Harley-box thinking.

Passed my parking lot/skills test this morning!
I still have to take the road test so for now I basically still have a learner's permit but the supervision and speed restrictions are lifted. So now I can ride by myself just no passenger and no riding at night. At least I'm legal for riding to work now. I can't get the time off work for the road test until May 21 (they only book roadtests on Wednesdays )

Man, Two weeks ago was a sad day in my world. I sold my Choprocket. It started life as a Yamaha Maxim 650. This bike rode so smooth lots of power and just wild looking. I wish I had known you guys have MoJo cause I have a balance disorder that caused me not to ride any more. at least not the Choprocket. No front brake, long rake. Any hoo Here she is.

Nice scoot Mike! Lack of balance is just one of our many disorders around here!! Sorry you had to let the bike go. It looks like a handful with that fork.

some parts of that video kind of freaked me out bill. it's kind of like a man-on-man-on-man-on-bike gangbang. and not in a good way.







the rest of it is cool.
