Slow progress. I think she'll be done before I'm ready to get on the track...

Back together minus a few upgrades that I'm going to hold off until the winter

When are you taking this baby out? Sometime this year yet?

fjorn, she's beautiful.
Shitty planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.

Sportbiker's tips on what not to do when you want to sell something:
    Post an artistic picture where your bike takes up 5% of the area.
    "Price firm but willing to negotiate."

Thanks sportbiker. Feels like forever since she's been complete.


As to when, it'll yet be this year. I have a couple of things I need to work out before I hit the track. Though, before I hit any big tracks, she and I will get a shakedown at DCTC. Unsure of the dates, though I'm waiting to hear back from ZARS on a couple of questions...

Shagz knows the story of my bike. But, for those of you whom want to know more:

More like his handiwork. Having just done my own first shot at painting, his results are clearly impressive.

Besides, admiring a beauty is different than wanting one. Something like Denise Richards: great looking on the outside but completely empty up top. A friend once told me, "Show me a super-hottie and I'll show you a guy who's sick of her shit."

Oh, I didnt paint it. The plastics were that way when I got it. I've only spent the last year and a hakf trying to make her mechanically sound.

Nevermind the horrible body position. Was my first time riding since July, 2010.
