Man, all you folks who posted pics of your garages (and living rooms)....clean! I am still in the process of finishing my house and the two tons of cultured stone, lawn mowers, shop tools, junk, junk, more junk and two bikes doesn't leave much room for maintainence.

Had new tires put on the FZ6 last weekend, didn't notice til I went to go for a scoot Saturday morning they didn't put the rear tire back on straight.


Then...hmmm....may break down and wash her...



Nice!! Take some pics of her all cleaned up and post them!! yahoo.gif

Swapped a set of used carbs into my Madura, synced them, oil change and a K&N air filter. Of course, several lengthy test rides are required to make sure everything is 100%.

I'm currently in the planning stages of rigging up some type of pump and resevoir with nozzles located above or below my tail section to squirt some type of nasty oily shit all over the windshield of the people that like to tailgate me while putting on make-up and texting, and talking on their cell phones....

Seriously. i'm gonna do this with a neat little red button to fire it off like some of the HID set-ups, or garage door set-ups that have been shown here with the little momentary switch located in the existing switch controls.....!

Hey DC,

did you get up to NH this weekend???
I was in your area today with the SO. I road up to halifax then over to Plymouth then down to Born on 3A and them back to the homestead. That route you showed me is very simular to the one i like to run just in reverse. Gotta hookup some weekend.

If the weather is bad the Holeshots headers go on, if the weather is good I ride. I love win/wins!

PC III is going on Friday. Saturday, I'm clearing a spot in the garage for my new Kendon single. I don't want to hear it.... sometimes, I'm going to take a couple of vehicles with me.

I will wash my bike when it needs it, after riding through enough bugs, or muddy roads or anytime there has been salt on the road.
But every time you ride it? That's not to keep the bike looking nice. That's because you just like to wash bikes. I don't really...

But you are right... to each their own.
