    Yeah. The road rash is finally mostly healed with just a bit of the scab left. The knee is still bruised to all hell and extremely tender but doesn't hinder me in anything unless I'm trying to kneel down or put weight directly on the knee (interfere's with certain activites at times ). But overall I got off very lucky

    Glad you are ok.... Pants with CE armor probably would have made that hurt alot less...



    I've had a low side get off at 60+, Wearing full leathers. I got up and walked a way... hell with the sliders, I rode the thing home.

    Penske shock traxxion dynamics forks... It's an inexpensive bike, but it will out ride most supersports in the twisties....
    I'm 32. I'm not too into crotch rockets, cruisers are a lot easier to take apart and mod. The fastest bike I have (in theory) is the '76 Yamaha RD350B, back in the day it was the fastest thing on the road. I have to take the engine apart and fix it before it will go again...well that and replace the full of the front brake assembly including the master cylinder. It was running for a bit, a buddy of mine rode it down the street since he's ok riding without a front brake (the image below is his Savage when we took the pipes off...he has a cherry bomb on it, it's obnoxious). Said it wanted to wheelie from stop. But it's a really cool bike, old two-stroke and if people think I'm gonna use the "smoke-less" oil in it, they've got another thing coming!

    But yeah, I like the cruiser style cause I'm not in a hurry to get anywhere. I like to cruise around the canyons and such in Colorado, it's a lot of fun. Plus chopping them is really easy. When I get my next bike, my 650 is getting chopped. I'm gonna make it really dorky (cause I'm a dork) and I'm totally making it into a pirate bike. Lowering it, chopping the rear fender, haven't decided if I'm gonna nix the front fender, rejetting it (which means I have to take my carburator to a mechanic to have them drill out my current jets. They're frozen in there...learned that the first time I wanted to rip out the air box), etc. Things are gonna fly off that bike when I get the chance/money. Go go angle grinder!

    I think the full of my motorcycle gear is a jacket (crotch rocket jacket oddly enough), a full face helmet, and gloves. I don't wear any of it typically in the summer. Way too hot.

    Do you know how many times I have ridden full bore on a bike, drunk, teasing time and space and daring God?

    Do you? Because I was so drunk I can't remember.
