Tyres are good for now.

What is this chrome stuff you speak of? That is a foreign concept to me.

Apparently it's very popular. DK sells all kinds of chrome things with skulls, and spikey bits.

Bling out yer DRZ and make it custom with mass produced chromey things.

That would look sweet, wouldn't it? How well does this chrome stuff hold up to constant bashing through water, mud, ice, snow, trees, rocks, buildings, mountains, cars, etc?

I am guessing it is light weight as well? That way it would reduce the weight of my bike, look better, become more durable, require less maintenance, and cost less money.

Sounds perfect!

Goes double here. We ever going to really get this season kicked off?

My two wheeled adventures have consisted of goofing off with my kids on our road.

I may need to turn in my username and password soon.

It's a slow start, yes, but it's coming. Patience, patience.

Forecast shows possibility of rain / snow from thursday all through the weekend. Guess I shouldn't have washed the Tiger.

I am happy that the test ride on the ZX1100 was so good on saturday. The front tyre is cupped as all hell, so I will be changing that this week, otherwise all is splendid there.

Now - the money pit that is the CB750 on the other hand.........

I have a 2010 crew cab 1/2 ton chev LTZ that I could rent to you folks for a $2.50 per mile, plus a car wash and a case of beer.

Any takers?

I just happen to know someone.

It needs new tires and an alignment before it goes anywhere though. The drive home was sketchy.

Now if I could get my trailer out of 4 feet of snow we'd be in business.

For reference to those of you I don't know as well, the fam just got this gem:

Of course, Mrs. B. wouldn't let me out to play with the likes of you FFs, so someone else would hafta drive it...
