Your question should have been "Why the Fack is that bike so clean?"

You know, I was starting to wonder as I've not actually seen Ed or Paul's bike IRL. I was thinking maybe photoshop er something...

I'm looking at another set of wheels. I'm thinking dual 17's though for a little more street inspired riding

Like it's any different than now. I rode into work last week. Instead of coming in the front of the parking lot, I rode up the 5 flights of stairs at the rear of the building. You should have seen the look on the guy's face that was smoking at the back of the building in the lower parking lot. When I got to the top, I shifted my laptop bag around, and rode on like that was the only way I knew to get into the parking lot....

Of course. We all know my friends are WAY easier on my shit than I am. You see HellSickle bought my old 990? I then posted up some videos of me riding it. Here's his response:

This is just like marrying a lovely and sweet young lady, and just before you leave for your honeymoon, you stumble across the porn videos she made in college on some internet site.

Maybe you'll let us tag along with the Wolf Pack sometime. From what I've seen, it looks like you are doing a bunch of Chick Rides (tm) these days. PrairieRider might show those ladies a wheel.

I'm usually not one for naming bikes, but I might have to rename the White Night. I'm thinking Moby.

BTW, I talked with Roger & he's going to dig around for those accessories that were removed. Thanks for the tips. Re: front rim, I'm not seeing any dents. They may have pressed it out when they were changing tires.

We'd love to let you guys tag along. Kelsie and Steph are in Idaho and BC, but we'd still love to have you guys around. Steph will be here this next summer, so we can do some more Chick Rides... :)

About the wheel, the dent was pretty easy to spot:

I little character dent in my rim

Also, I remembered that I changed the fuel map to the 2010 R map:

Uploaded a new fuel map to my ECU today

Let me know if you want me to help you change that back...

Nope. White Knight it is.

I gave it that name. Changing it would be like making "Jeffication" into "Deenered", not happening

HellSickle- I swear, I've only seen Rob ride that bike on Sundays, under 5k rpms, and only to church and back. I don't think it's ever been off-road?


Where the hell are all of the goodies? I told you that you should have sold them to me, Rob!

Jeff - run it up to speed.. you'll know how good of a job they did on it.

Just keep in mind they are *soft* from the get go. I managed to nurse mine for 30k miles before getting caught at speed blasting through a silt wash in Idaho that had a hidden boulder in the bottom.



Wheel is at Woody's now being upgraded to a 1.60 (skinnier) from rim - A60 with superlacing.

Seems to have been fixed. I'm guessing they pressed it back when they were changing tires.

Riiiiiigggggttttt.....

Goodies: I'm hoping they find a box of stuff in the back when Don returns to the shop.

Rob, did you ever consider a disabling switch for the ABS? I'm digging into electricals tomorrow to install heated grips and might put in the ABS toggle while I'm there.

This community is so incestuous....

Edit: They found the HDB guards, luggage racks, and keys. The skid plate was sold off.
