When you run out of farkle...

Ok, so I have been tinkering with my 919 for about 6 years and for about 40,000 miles. I am starting to run out of farkle to strap, bolt, zip tie, or tape to it. How do you deal with running out of things to do to your bike...lol

I have added a a host of things since this pic:

Get a new bike, obviously.

An artist can't spend all their time with a single canvas.

Ahhh.. I am starting to understand the wisdom....

I have been thinking of getting a KLR for a looong while, but living in the middle of a concrete jungle and having limited time to properly flog on it kind of talked me out of it. Besides, having only one bike = more money for road trips, beer, and individualized stimulus packages for single moms ;-)

Surprisingly enough one company makes a bolt on turbo kit. From what I have read its suppose to make it an uncontrollable beast... with that being said, after a few track days I quickly realized that it has more than enough power to mess up my hair. ;-)

Myself, I would see a doctor about too much farkling. I believe it is a medical condition that needs to be professionally treated.

Or, you can just ride it till the wheels fall off. Then start all over again.

Yeah, holy shit!!!! the more I read... the more I realize that I will never be "that guy"... you need a PHD in eleven forms of engineering to ride that thing...lol.

On a side note.. damn he's good.
