I get up at 0500 and sometimes we have to work in the rain/snow. The 30year olds have a hissy fit :lol::rolleyes:

Crap.... I just realized, I need to create the 2019 member badges. I'll try not to make them look like bandaids this time, okay @Speed? :D

I've been watching past races to get my fix. The Sepang test is the 6th,7th & 8th of this month. :headbang: I'm really excited to see and hear a group of the new Triumph 765's.

Gave my boss a V-day gift - a resignation letter; starting a new job in a few weeks... she asked if there was anything she could do to get me to stay, Barry White music started playing... she smiled coyly and brushed the papers across her desk.... or that was just a movie I saw once in college.

 

and I gave my bike a V-day gift...

Looking forward to doing a couple of weekend trips this year now that I'll have the luggage to carry all my crap.

Had a good time on a T120 bonneville around Oahu. Great bike for it. Was planning on a Harley Fat Bob but it was gone, as was the Thurxton R. No regrets though. Weather wad beautiful and I think the bonneville was the better bike for the loop. Still might try a fat bob if I can book it

Nice!  I'd like to ride one of those!  That was one of the bikes I was considering when I bought my z900rs👍

After my short day on it, I think you made the right choice. I liked the Bonnie, but I didn't love it. It didn't really do anything well. The motor was a bit lazy. It wasn't super torquey but it also didn't really want to rev. I think redline is 7k. It felt like it was restricted. I wish the Thruxton or Speed Twin were in stock. I think the extra ~20 hp and couple hundered more rpms from the hotter cams and tuning those have would make an appreciable difference. The brakes also seemed lacking, but who knows the maintenance these get. Never got on anything twisty so I have no idea how it handles, but it didn't feel super flickable. Seems like it'd be a good motorcycle for someone that wanted something very easy and relaxing to ride, and didn't care much about power.

I think a few fellow riders have had a Matt or satin color bikes. I was wondering how you guys clean and protect the finish. Thanks

I don't wash my bikes but I do clean them once in a while. For the matte finish on the ZX10, I use a matte detailer, like this one.

I just use glass plus and a soft clean rag if its not too dirty, otherwise its out with the soap and water, course thats what I do on all my bikes finishes.  I dont kno if there really is a specific best way to clean matte finish

I'm still kickin, and riding more than ever but have been doing my own thing when I can since I've had a lot of life happen in the last few months.  The girl you saw me with at bsc ended up buying a new 19 ninja 400 for 4800 otd  and is very happy with it so far.  Surprising to me as her mind had been set on a gsxr 600 for awhile.   I bout flipped when u said you where looking at Indians. You decide on a bike yet?

Greetings from Hartford City Hoosierland.

 

Sorry been absent, but life got really really busy, as some know I got married, and bought a Goldwing. Sold the Goldwing and bought another Blackbird (a really really nice one)The rest of the story is I had to do dirt work around our house to have the ground drain around the house instead of into the garage and into the basement, that was a party in itself. I rebuilt the garage and insulated it and installed A/C and Heat blah blah made it nice. I bought a truck (big semi truck) in January and been really enjoying owning a big truck. I am making a decent living doing it but geez I need to eat less, gaining weight has been a big issue, although I like food so it is a battle. I finally bought a chatterbox X1 headset hope you all still use them, look forward to one day taking a weekend and coming out there for a Bixby or Hannible ride.

 

I did leave Facebook due to, well politics, and the uge to blab on stuff that I should not really get bent on was too strong and I am much happier not seeing all that social stuff, and all over all. Not to mention Zuckerbergs attitude that he is allowed to do whatever he wishes with our info.

 

I do miss you guys and the rides. I hope all are well and think about all that I know, every time I look at my bike and reminisce on the good days. One day we will be out there before it gets too cold out, soon I hope. At least I get to see some action from there watching Todd's Videos and trollin' from afar that way. 

 

Hope to see you all Soon.

 

~Brandi aka Aphrodite
