Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Installed a brand new led bulb in my brake light, only to find that the stupid thing is only half as bright as the incandescent bulb I had planned to replace with it. So that was a waste of $16.50 (including shipping). But its ok, I found a better bulb for $4 with free shipping.

I did a light sand and final pass of the base colour for my cruiser's replacement tank. After that I tinkered around getting my shop a little more organised. I went over the beast and made sure it's ready for the morning. I usually do a quick lap around the back lane to be sure everything's happy.
Today a group of boarders were set up behind the garage with a ramp and camera, trying to launch themselves at it with a bungie system. They called themselves the LandYachtz (Vancouver) Eh Team. It didn't take much to see if anyone wanted a tow instead. They each had three or four passes at the ramp with my help to get them up to speed. I would shout out when we hit 30 km/h and the boarder would release and hit the ramp, go over the wall and land on the neighbour's driveway, uphill.
If/when the video of it shows up I'll post a link to it.

Wasn't my gasbike, but I installed a new crank arm on my dad's mtn bike.

USED BIKE PARTS FTW!

$7 from the LBS. Waay cheaper than $20+shipping from amazon.

I'm assuming that K.N. is a reference to my signature. But K.N. is not my username, and my signature is not related to my username in any way. "King Nothing" is a Metallica song that I'm quoting.

Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger
But there's no one around
Just want one thing
Just to play the king
But the castle's crumbled
And you're left with just a name

Where's your crown, King Nothing?
Where's your crown?
