Hmmm try riding around in santa ana... I speed through all the neighborhoods, which are quite full of people who would love to rob me and take my bike. Bur, I dont even give them that opportunity. I typically lock up my bike with 3 locks and store them in my room locked up.

I know what you mean..I used to live in Santa Ana and rode my red motorized bike everywhere. Not a good thing in neighborhoods full of Surenos.

I don't speak or read Spanish. (ok, I know Corona and Carni asada burrito, and a teeny bit more)
What did you say and what is a Surenos?

Surenos are gang members who favor blue. They're the dominant hispanic gang group in Southern California.

The phrase I typed was Latin for "Dare to be wise, always prepared, always vigilant"

Thank you for the translation.
I don't follow anything gang related, not even on the news.
The only thing I have heard of is ms13.
I honestly thought that a Surenos was a pepper, like a Habanero or similar.

That's not really surprising about the cager yelling at you about your "smoky" engine, while driving a big gas-hog truck. America is full of people who are very full of propaganda about cars and very insensitive to reality about how engines work. They think their big SUVs (Selfish Urban Vanity) fart roses because it's "EPA approved" and a 4 stroke, while yours is evil witchcraft because it's a 2 stroke or "doesn't belong on a bicycle". lol.

I have had some nasty looks about my Dax bike, but I can stand next to the muffler and talk over it at all but full roar. I can't even stand the chemical smell from crapalytic converters on a basic v6 pickup. MABs are awesome.

Yeah, the mexican gangs are horrible, and there's a bunch of them, probably all I can say about that without my post getting fumigated by the moderators.

You're probably looking for Serrano peppers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serrano_pepper

I rode my bike in some nice neighborhoods with my kid, and ran some errands on it.

I made a patch kit bag that mounts to the engine where the fuel tank used to be (I use a 1 gallon tank on other side). I had a really nice ride and pedaled most of the ride because the weather was so cool compared to our usual 100*F.

I took my bike out for a 15-20 minute spin around the neighborhood, so I could come back and check for loose nuts and bolts and fine tune everything. Only found one! Will be happier when I get my dashboard with my speedometer and clock mounted on my bike.but here it is so far.

Nice bike, nice saddlebags.
I like the red rims too.
