I started using e-cigs. It's great because I can "smoke" indoors in a lot of places, and don't burn any more clothes or get ashes anywhere.

That is funny though.

I am sensing a little sarcasm there dan lol and I agree it is very easy to quit. One day I decided to quit and I quit and have not started smoking again this is the second time I have quit the first time I lasted 11 months and relapsed for 5 years but I rarely smoked more than 5 cigs a day it took me a while but when I wanted it enough it was just that easy I just quit. I think quitting smoking is like any other drug you just have to want it enough and have the will power to get through the withdraws. Now you wanna hear a hard one to get off of if you are a heavy soda or coffee drinker try quitting caffeine, I had many a restless night of sleep the leg spasms were the worst. I would really like to get my dad on those esmokes he smokes like two packs a day.

For as far as what I did to my bike to day hardly nothing except read about stuff about these great bikes oh yea and waiting impatiently for my new wheel to come in the mail maybe tomorrow I am craving a ride it has been almost two whole weeks. And a couple of days ago I put bar end grips but put them on so that they faced back towards the seat kinda made it look like those swoop back board tracker bars I want to fabricate me some kind of throttle and brake controls that all work independently of the setup I already have so that I can switch positions hmmm

Still putting the finishing touches on the "carbide lamp" look-a-like headlight housing. As I mentioned, it was a stainless steel toilet brush holder. It will have 6v bike headlight guts, which I'm almost done rigging up the fittings on. And I took the end off a stainless steel sunglasses case, which I will drill holes in the side of and mount on top for the vent. Add some mounts for a U-shaped bracket, and I should have a wicked-cool headlight.

Checked the magic disappearing fender bolt. Still there fer once. Really nice ride. Dry roads. The HFs hate starting in the cold but run great. Might just be the cold weather RPM, dunno. She just seemed to happily hum along all day. Gonna stick with the 50T sprocket for now

I tightened the chain a little more to prevent unnecessary slack, and hopefully not too tight (haven't tested my bike yet)

Tried to bend the rear wheel as straight as possible as one section of it is was crocked.

Filed off the bit that the chain was grinding against on the clutch actuator cover to prevent the chain from hitting it and making too much noise

Took the gasket linings from old engine to fit to this one since it didn't have any

Took the 200w plate from old engine and put it onto new one so it has an (un)official plate which says it is 200w with the manufacturer and all on it.

I bet that will look rad! my bike is mostly red with black motor, head set, rims/ties and seat. also some other rando things. and i think it looks sharp. hope it works out like mine did.
