Okay the R8 wins...

...but the ZX10 sure gives it a run for its money. And probably 80k less in price.
The end is best...good sportsmanship between them all.

Que sera, sera




The net says that in a small number of DR650 transmissions, the gear that drives 3rd, 4th, 5th can and will grenade without warning, usually around 20K miles, and will take the piston, sleeve, crank, conrod etc with it.  Mine was in that number apparently, though I only got 11K miles.  It was fun while it lasted.

KLUNK!

Is the sound my DR made today on Hwy 14 before it completely died.  Just went over 11000 on the clock.



Luckily I have super rad friends who were offering help right and left.  Also a guardian angel with a box truck.  Thank you all!

barter time

My truck is for sale or trade for a running bike as of right now. I want a UJM, but it can't cost more than I get for the truck, and it has to be mechanically decent and rideable. I need to wait til I have a garage to finish the duc, and I want something winterable. I'm thinking $1000 value for the truck? This should be the perfect time of year to do this.

Hide the radiators


A pretty VFR800 motor is underneath.

This was in the Aug/Sept 2005 issue of Rapid magazine.  Can't find much else about it.

Looks like fun

I'm not sure if he was missing his front teeth before he jumped, but he definitely was missing them after.

A reminder

PETROL-FOOD-BEER: Around the World with Austin Vince from Make Your Bones on Vimeo.

This movie has been out for a while apparently but it takes time for pop culture news to creep back here by the railyard and the hotdog factory.  Anyway it reminded me of all the important stuff.  Look at them, they're smiling and riding motorcycles and having fun.  There you go.

Definite movie night candidate.
