Dirt Bike chopper on Clist. I thought Skippii was the first, guess not.

I see this ruk parked in the market street parking garage all the time. Thought HBN might wanna see the "farkles" and mods. Hwy, pegs?

Mostly looks like of the few parts that are there even more have been taken off. Better cooling? Just looks cool? He broke it off and doesn't care? I think the bike was not minimalistic enough for him.

Now that's a pickup truck! Check out all the utility...

Hey you got two of my favorite dream vehicles in those shots!!

Thats the NCY Frame Brace with footpegs and a no radiator cover (though they make some cool ones). Neither really do much for performance and since I ride in the rain, I want my gas tank and everyhting down there well protected from water and mud/debris. I can wrest my legs comfortably on the front forks though I am planning on putting some footpegs under the seat in the already provided holes. The tuner set for the ruck is really crazy - there is SO MUCH you can do to mod em. Speaking of which, I have had new roller weights and variator for a while now...anyone nearby have an impact wrench I can borrow? Looks like I may have to ruck over the mountain to the FOXden (no easy feat)

Keep your eye out for an OLD Ford Festiva. It has always been my dream car 45 mpg

I think without the toolbox the bed of the chopped geo will fit the rukus. And then when you get to where you're going and the Geo is way to much of a gas guzzler you can whip out the ruk for the local trips.

I can bring the impact wrench to the Ninja dojo. What sized sockets you need? That place have electricity or does everything run on hamster power?

Man is it WINDY out today, the DRZ feels like it will take flight in this breeze.

New front tire arrived when I was out riding, woohoo. I love riding in the Valley.

Off to NoVA, sans bike.

I was getting my haircut and the haircut lady, a native, was telling me stories about people dying in car crashes on Briery Branch Rd

Yeah try heading into the 20 mph wind gusts uphill with 50cc Have my rain gear but hoping the showers can hold off here till 5:30 or so. Scoot is covered in pollen so it could use the rain. Then a nice wash/wax tomorrow (the ruck, not me!)

Eye to the radar

Oh and yes Rob, I have electricity now. Sorta miss Skippii's hampster wheel garage...

I've got an impact you can borrow too. I supposed ruckin down to Staunton is easier then over the mountain. I couldn't get it to you until Sunday if I were bringing it to H'burg.

My buddy had a festiva in high school. I think we picked it up and parked in the school on time. It would also go around corners on 2 wheels. dukes of hazzard style.

I've been driving a predented 96 corrolla for the last couple years. 38 mpg hauling ass over afton twice a day isn't too bad. I feel extra manly when I drive it.

That looks pretty cool. I saw the blue Angels at Andrew AFB years ago. The plane that impressed me the most that day was the Harrier...



You could always go to this show too! You know how to get there...

They had the Flying Circus there last year. It was great watching them reenact a dog fight right over the house. I live about 1 mile from the airport.

I take my son up there every year. They stopped it a couple of years ago to bring the president in on Air Force One, that was pretty cool to see. I liked the Blue Angels, we've seen the Thunderbirds there too. The whole day is pretty damn impressive.

Great picture of the Harrier. I'll try and get some good ones this weekend; I'll have to figure out how to manipulate the shutter speed on my camera so all the shots don't come out blurry as the planes wiz by!

And just to make y'all jelous, I'll be watching the whole thing from a buddy of mine's boat. After all, it's taking place at the Boca Chica naval air station, and I doubt that they'd let up come in there with a bunch of alcohol!
