must be "/" envy, there's a lot of that going around, jenna has it too. But you ST's do over compensate in quite productive ways.

Nice write up bro, fine work, much envy (especially your garage!).

I'm studying up on the r100gs as I'm just flat-out intrigued by the machine and would like another modest project bike to tinker with. My motorcycle wrenching experience has been with a '97 Funduro and I've had a ball learning how to wrench/upgrade and trim her out to ride pretty much anyplace. Great little machine.

But I want an old airhead now! Many questions regarding the ability to do all my own wrenching and fitting one to my size (5-10, 175#), I'm off to search the threads :)

Does your license plate frame read " I used to be conceited but now I'm perfect" ?

Top notch job there. You should be proud.

Wish I lived somewhere that I could keep a bike that clean.
