Rode mine to a friends and back; tightened up the brakes a lot more as they were still a bit loose.

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

Couldn't take it any more! Reading what you guys (Amigos e Amigas) Getting to ride and tinker. So while putting the new snow blower up and away, I thought I would just start her and warm her up a bit. Which of course led to a "just a quick around the block" Which of course led to "just one more spin" which always leads to a ride around until dark, snork. "... you might be a MBer"
God I really love this build. Does need another 2 teeth on the final sprocket but is just so cool all around. Ride, sound and looks. My Girl is hot. She accidently started on the 3rd pull/rotate the engine and it was 30F. Just had to get a ride in. Got some strange "that look"(s) Like WTH is wrong with that guy? No coat or gloves and grinning like an idiot. LOL ("like")

One of my favorite quotes by Confucius; "man shall have his garden and woman, her kitchen and all will be right with the world" I may have messed that up, but is some thing like that. My version is now "Man shall have his motorized bicycle and *forget* you" (a lil tired of humanity at the moment. Does it show?)

Just got back from a store run. Had to make an emergency stop on the way there, on ice. Some blonde pulled out without looking. Luckily I wasn't going that fast, and had some help on the front tire, still came within an inch of her... Screamed "WTF" so loud her next kids going to hear it. Friggin ppl, lol.

Lubed my chains and took two bikes out for ride. Froze my **lls off but had a good time anyway. Put on my WW2 leather flying helmet, gloves and leather bomber jacket and thought I was Paul Tibbets.
When the heck is this 'Global Warming' going to kick in?

XD it's all good, it's nice and quiet but it doesn't have the exact feel it had before. i'm gonna cut some more holes in the bottom and see if that helps. want it to stay quiet, but not screaming loud like it was before.

it was easy, just use a can opener to cut the lid part off, cut a small notch to slip it over the bolts for the heat shield (or just cut the bolts off). drill a hole in the bottom for the mounting stud, and cut exhaust holes in it.

gonna see about getting the crank off my occ chopper and putting it on the bike since that one is spaced wider out.
