The first time you scrape a peg is quite an interesting feeling. Especially if its in a big cruiser.

I could really use a new seat. Ive taken some 4-5+ hour rides and my ass hurts. Freakin seats are expensive.

I had an issue yesterday speakin of bikes. Was trying to drive to Twinsburg to get something to surprise my fiancÚ, got halfway there and my bike lost power, started back up while still rolling, then 2 miles later it lost power again at an intersection. Tried starting it and the battery died. Had to wait infront of some old ladies house on the side of the road or an hour til my fiancÚ got there with a tank of gas and jumper cables. I think I had less fuel than I thought, and even though there was still gas visible, I think I overdid it on seafoam and it was floating on top. Luckily it started right back up and didn't give me any issues getting home. Kind of sucked though. Lesson learned.

Some bikes wont run at all with a crap battery. Loose terminals can do it too.

Didn't get to ride on Friday, but I did get to ride today on Saturday at 6-7ish close to night time. I did very well without any help at all from my bro and friends except when I accidentally turned the handle bars to sharply when trying to turn I wen't down hard, but I saved the bike from slamming and breaking anything on it, no scratches at all, somehow I managed to kick the gear up into neutral when falling I held onto the clutch because I noticed a lot of the times when I fall, especially on a dirt bike I never held in the clutch and the bike would just fly out of my hands, I'm learning pretty quickly.

I'm also getting a lot better with feathering the clutch and giving it more throttle and getting the timing right, so I launch very smoothly, I did stall a pretty good amount but I did get a good amount of time on it before it would stall, and I was walking the bike while throttling it with my legs off the ground, still not used to balancing the bike that well like that, only because the bike is pretty wide considering it's not made for me, and it's pretty tall, so it feels uncomfortable on your thighs when riding.

Clamedeus, someone bought a 2012 model ninja 650r today. Super nice looking machine. Reworked frame, bodywork, suspension, revised engine. List goes on. The green one is pretty damn nice looking and i dont really like sport bikes.



Pics huge, but shows good detail.
