Assert y'self with the nosey neigbors this weekend.

Seriously, it looks good. Whenever I change a tire/ repair a flat I check the tire pressure frequently with an accurate pressure gauge for a couple of days. Just to be sure.

Don't sweat the seat. This is what I used for a couple of weeks whilst I was awaiting for my Bill Mayer Seat. Teaches you humility, gets a lot of strange looks from the biking community. Teaches them to learn respect...

Have a great weekend!

LOL! Bill that pic is awesome - did you really do that? If you did, it makes me feel a lot better;)

No one is more paranoid about tires than i am;) I'll check them tonight to see if they lost any air from Wednesday, and then virtually constantly once I start riding. I've seriously thought about those wireless tire pressure monitors... we'll see.

no straight pipes for me - i'm using the EPCO peashooters I bought from wirewrkr:) they are more noisy, but not as bad as my harley nieghbor;) (who DOES wear a beanie helmet!;) )

I have a gremlin bell on my Honda Shadow that was given to me by a dear friend. I like the sentiment, but honestly I'm going to cut the clapper out of the bell - the little ringing when i hit bumps makes me think something is falling off the bike!:)
