I gave my Ranger a fuller inspection before deciding to make it legal and start driving it. I’m happy with what I see.
I’ve owned my Suzuki GS 850G for nearly a year now and it’s one of those bikes I just want to hold onto for a while. It’s just an awesome all rounder, sounds great, and is in perfect mechanical shape. Once I do the front forks the darn thing will be one of the most mechanically perfect vehicles I own.
Wow...I cannot sing enough praise about Harley-Davidson right now. Any company can drape a rainbow over their logo, but HD went the extra mile today. Turnout was about 200+ bikes, most not even Harleys.
By the time you read this I’ll be participating in an hour long motorcycle Pride Parade through Milwaukee. The hundreds of bikes will be escorted by police through Milwaukee with the ride ending by going straight through Milwaukee PrideFest
I so wanna get a gun rack then put a Super Soaker in it.
I now own a 1999 4 Liter V6 4x4 Ford Ranger! Now before you say something about my hoarding, I did sell three bikes and this will largely serve duty as a Gambler 500 and offroading rig, hopefully for several years and rallies. Got it for all of $700.
Had a productive little weekend!
Deleted the Gambler 500 Ranger post. I guess I need adults to occasionally break me out of my bubble tell me when I’ve gone too far. It seems a lot of you at bare minimum think I have a problem and the number of people has been increasing with every post.
Of rock, sand, mud, water crossings, jumps, gravel, and wide open throttle... That’s how long Imperator Slowiosa III survived. I also experienced my first real motorcycle crash, too.
I’ve been putting off doing the smart’s brakes since I got that Yamaha U7E. The reason for it is because I remembered that my right wheel’s rotor still had its locating/locking bolt. With me needing to drive 5 hours down to get to the start of the Gambler 500, I can’t wait any longer.
I shouldn’t do anything important on Mondays.
My janky Honda Elite has gotten even more janky! I was up until 2am last night wiring up my electrical mods and doing some maintenance.
After Imperator Slowiosa III’s maiden voyage I snapped the key off in the ignition, rendering it dead. Finally, it’s back and better than ever!
It’s been a while since I last bought a bike. I generally feel this is a good thing. I have a collection of toys I really love from my Goldwing to the CBR F3 I will ride through June and I don’t want to sell any of them. With that said, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been looking for any cool finds...
Well, I’ve always wondered what a Chinese Grom tops out at, turns out it’s 50-55 with this dude riding it.
Jez’s article about the harassing DoorDash guy reminds me of my own unfortunate encounters from rapey Uber drivers (ugh) to people so obsessed with me they know my dead name.
With two weeks until the Gambler 500, I better get started on this thing!
With the fixed-ish front forks the GS takes on an even sharper lean when parked. Uh, I really really don’t like that. While I’m figuring out what stand I need to get I’m rigging up a temporary solution.
I accidentally accomplished A LOT this week and this weekend wraps it up neatly in a bow.
