    Default My latest project or why I don't have as much time to play video games.

    1976 Yamaha XS650.
    Here's how it looked when I got it.

    And here's how looks now....

    Finished this one. It only took four years. Too much WoT....

    Pffffft. Show off.


    Finished one looks sweet. New one looks like you're going to be busy.

    Good skills to have.

    All I could ever do is change a sparkplug.

    Do you ride much? My cousin just t-boned a careless driver that pulled in front of his bike. Required surgery but should be alright.

    It didn't occur to me to consider the injury to the groin area. If you crash a bike into something, the body keeps going, and those boys end up smashing into the gas tank before the rest of your body ends up hitting whatever it is you hit.

    He told me his balls are the size of oranges. He couldn't piss because his ***** was so swollen and they couldn't get a catheter up there until the next day.

    We had planned on going to Colombia in September and renting motorbikes to explore the country, but I'm not so sure about the motorbike part of this anymore.

    Thanks Geri.
    Just pretend that every automobile driver is ether tying to kill you or doesn't see you and you'll be fine.
    I don't ride in town much any more, mostly out in the country.

    About ~70% done. Actually, most subsystems done, just the detail work that's slowing me down.
    Polishing for example. In hell they make you polish.
