Well got around to working on the Ninja. Wanted to change the rear sub frame. I made the first one out of round stock thinking if i crashed it would bend and i could bend it back with my hands, but i could not tote much ,so i set out to make a new one.




Round stock



I think that will work for a sub frame.





New sub







Put a pelican box on with some heavy duty hinges.






extra fuel






With it flipped up my bag fits snug as a bug in a rug.

Went for a ride this weekend to a local off road area Turkey bay. It was fun and it put the Ninja thru a few test. My box worked out fine but the pegs on this bike are killing my legs. If you ride some real off road on this bike and have to stand and sit a bunch its like your doing squats. Just not made for anyone that is tall. Going to try and raise the seat a inch and lower the pegs a inch.


Did some more welding. Not worried about over loading now.











Here it is with my waterproof luggage or wal- mart cooler that holds a case of beer.
