Japan
« on: March 25, 2016, 10:52:25 AM »
I'm off to the Motherland (Japan) on Monday morning at 2am local. The season hasn't quite started yet, but there have been nice days here and there to ride. I went out on Wednesday for an hour and it was glorious. Rode like an amateur the whole time. But that was my last chance to ride in almost a month. Hopefully the weather is better once I return mid April. Be safe while I'm gone, but enjoy every second of it. I don't know what it's like where you live, but here drivers don't watch for bikes, so have an escape plan. Make sure you put yourself somewhere where you can be seen and heard. I keep my bike in low gear for the first little while. People get annoyed that you're making so much noise, but they can't be annoyed at something that they don't know is there. I'll see you guys in a couple weeks.

Have fun! I'm still trying to get a front rim that isn't going to break the bank, so no rides for me yet :(

Straight, used time are getting harder to find these days. I used to troll eBay for them sometimes just for kicks, and there used to be plenty that were straight but needed a paint job, for under 150 a piece...doesn't seem that way anymore, ha. I wonder if ANYONE has ever bought new replacements from Honda...they're like 700 bucks!

She turned out way better than I could have ever imagined. Especially considering I didn't have a plan. Got this cheap, that looked cool, had my favourite colours, etc etc. Now that she's all together I just want another bike to do differently to see how that would turn out lol. Only thing left I want to do is wheels, but unlikely I will. I'm just going to do maintenance and ride her. I might do another body kit in a couple years just to mix things up.

Edit: spelling
