Just a final check over and try and work out how to document the momentous occasion and I'm done...

Looks like I was too quick. The sun is still up. Heaps of time left.
Pretty awesome. A lot scary

All it needs it a photo of it being ridden, with lots of blue smoke.

Top effort trev but is it a goer

A pic of you doing a bit circlework would make my weekend.


Just spent a lot of today turning snags and selling egg and bacon rolls at the school fete. What a bunch of rude ungreatfull bastards most people are. I had this guy who was about 50 berate me for giving him a sausage sandwich using the crust end of the loaf... I said your joking ...FFS its not mc donalds it was a charity event. He demanded either his money back or a new sambo. Had to be polite I was working with the headmaster (they still scare me).

people are pigs. Where I work I sometimes have to man the gates and chsrge people $5 for parking. So far I have had 5 fist fights and numerous close calls over the fee. 5 people have tried to run me down and I have been spat on 3 times. Anyone in melbourne that was at the yamaha clearance sale recently would have met me. If you are the jockey sized turd who wanted to play but then ran away or the guy in the comodore that tried to run me down, pm me for a rematch, or just wait at home for the police to call as it was all on camera.
sorry for the rant
cheers

Well I'm a bit disappointed.

I had a few last minute problems.

Fuel started pissing out the carbs, and I didn't have enough time to fix it properly... So I just kicked the hell out of it with the throttle wide open.

She started and was running nicely so I went to slip t in gear, she lurched forward and then died... Fucking clutch was sized.

So I spent a few minutes pissing the neighbours off by riding up and down the street with the clutch in and cracking the throttle open and shut all the time.

But I was running out of daylight and I wanted to try this thing on dirt.

So I grabbed the only person available to see if I could still get some pics,unfortunately Mum is pretty shocking with a camera, and these are all she got...








OK so it being dark wouldn't have helped her lack of camera prowess.

But in the brief ride I had I was impressed, even with the road rear tyre on she would still hoist the front wheel with ease and it didn't feel to bad to ride...

So I need to look at the clutch and clean the carbs again, get a knobby for the rear, and fix a few other problems and it could be a fun bike

But the main thing is I feel like I have done something with my weekend... And I have the bike to prove it.
