    Better way to attach pics.... look at the buttons directly above the reply screen window where you type them word thingys. fifth button from the right is the "insert image" button. select the "direct link" option from your photobucket pic in your album. after copying that then push the insert image button above the replky window. Paste the the copied "direct link" into the window that pops up and viola!

    wheelied it just now on the street. And no you can't ride it after seeing your "jump" on the video from the bike night! IT is going to be stripped down this weekend. It needs the carb cleaned bad (hence the wheelie) and it is going to end up a nice flat green color with white pinstriping. Wife is going to ride this one to school. I got it in des moines last night. 2 hours out and 2 hours back. I am tired.

    Bike/scooter #2 is getting picked up tonight for even cheaper... (I am a cheap turd ask my wife) You guys will have to wait to see it though, I don't want to ruin the surprise. This one I am getting tonight will be mine. It will be a four stroke and an antiquity ( is that a word) The one I am getting tonight is almost as old as I am.

    You laugh, but a guy I know from MI through the Subaru Forum races/raced scooters. Some of those guys are pretty fanatic about it. Not really my cup of tea, but looks like they have fun doing it.

    Shasta, no way, the R1 was sweet. No worries there will be plenty more to come.

    Then here is the next project for me. As alluded to earlier today.

    Project Blasphemer 2.0 $100
    74 honda ct70 (minus the motor)

    hopefully will get it running here in a few days with a motor I have on the bench.

    You are correct!! :deal

    just gotta get through this rough patch and then maybe end of next year I can start thinking about a bike again.

    Definately not going the sportbike route again. Going to go back to something the wife can ride with me on since we are not going to be able to afford two bikes for us to ride for a good while.

    Maybe back to a FJR, C-14 or maybe even something thats alot of fun around town......a new Gen II Vmax. :evil

    Yeah Bogie! You just need to buy shitty bikes like the ones I have!

    But I do have to admit that I'd rather have one new V-max than DR650s :lol3
