Is it me or ...

The motorcycle offering for 2010 has nothing that even remotely gets me interested?

You know you are an addict when...

You complain about the lack of a neutral light indicator on your car.

Brakes bleeding

Over the weekend we bleed both rear and front brakes on my, as preparation for the handlebar install on the '08.

Out of having to run to CT to get some smaller tubing and a lot of bubbles at the nipple, it went pretty well. After putting the bike together, I went for a test drive to ensure I still had braking abilities.

I have to report that we must have done a good job because I felt no loss of braking power, just more nose diving thanks to the wonderful shitty stock forks.

We are almost ready for the big job on the '08!

I am officially hooked up on True Blood, damn you woman! At least its on HBO :devilgrin

Best piece of car related entertainment ever


If I my income was exponentially increased, I would buy it and keep it as a piece of my collection.

If I ever start my own guerrilla/revolutionary force, I will make sure we get Hilux's.

Karma finally paid off

Big Big big shout to my new friends from the constabulary force.

All the pain, sweat, spilled blood, strained back paid off last night.

Silly things I have done on two wheels

Oh crap I need to finish my break-in ASAP!

Cue in worst plan ever to cram in as much KMs as I can in one evening:

View Larger Map

It sounded like a very good plan, except:
  • It was early May
  • I left town at 5 pm
  • I had no idea what my range was and if there was enough gas stations along the way.
  • It get dark quite fast in early May
  • This was not the best way to accomplish my goal
  • The bike was 2-3 weeks old
In the end I made it back in town just in time to call my wife good night. I had been driving in the dark for the last hours, I had broken several speed limits and was cold.

That night I broke 800km on the odo and finally was able to rev past 6.5k

But the huge smile I had on my face made it worth it's while!

If I were to do it again, I would probably be stupid enough to try to cram as many KMs in one evening, but this time I would plan my ride using Google Map and would definitely hit the 300KM mark!

New word suggestion for the English dictionary

Craptacular: Spectacularly crap. See Craptastic or Chevrolet Cobalt.

Craptastic: Fantastically crap. See Chevrolet Cobalt or Craptastic.

Scamtastic: Scam of a fantastic scale. See Craiglist.

How could GM screw up the Delta platform is beyond me. The Opel/Saturn Astra is light years ahead.

Life Skills

Don't know if I should be ashamed or not ...

I had to google to find where the cookies are stored in IE 7.

You'd really though I would remember that from my teenage years ...

Or may be I have been using Firefox for too long ...

You be the judge!
