loud noises!

well, i got back from a ride today. nothing fancy, just another trip up to Okutama. decided to go have some fun up on the mountain. took my camera, but only got a few pics out of the deal. stationary stuff. a buddy of mine showed up at about 1030. he's a pretty quick rider, but i'm getting faster every time i ride. i scraped the hell out of my toe slider, so i guess it's a good thing i didn't stick out my knee! lol! jeans are a mo fo! anyways, the cops showed up and almost pulled us over. lol, i don't think he would have in his SUV. silly. anyways, i almost ran out of gas, too. damn Japanese gas stations were closed. bastards. anyways, here's a pic. nothing too special. i heard this really loud noise coming from the back of my bike, tho. hmmm... i gotta check it out.

hells yes! it's lifting in first and second. power delivery is a bit smoother, too. i still want a Power Commander, tho. hopefully that'll take care of the low speed abruptness.

thanks again!

Nice pic Nick.

You shouldn't really be scraping your toes , where is the peg under your boot?

I like your new avatar, she's a hottie...

the peg is directly under the ball of my foot. where the big toe meets the foot. and i ride slightly pigeon-toed. i'm close to dragging the knee. i just need leathers.
