LOL........!

I use my butt dyno (seat of pants experience) for everything I do to my bikes, if it make a noticeable difference I say so and if it dont I say so and if it make a good difference I keep it and usually duplicate it on another bike, my cloud 9 seats are one of those things and Kenda makes a particular tire that I really like also so I have a set on tow of my bikes, I've lately grown very fond of the comfort of having the ape type bars on my bikes that let me sit up straight and cruise with more comfort so now I have the mini ape bars on three bikes and fixing to put taller bars on the Huffy karaoke bike also.

My exhaust set ups with exception to the Huffy are all pretty loud, but I plan to do some more experimenting in the near future with a couple of new pocket bike chambers I bought last week, got both of them in now and I'm hoping I can make something that performs good and lets the engine breathe well enough to keep a good top end speed, maybe some day when you make it down this way I'll have something done up the way I want it and you can test it and tell me if it was worth my effort or if I went to a bunch of trouble for no good reason....LOL!

I have not rode mine in about 2 months because of health problems and I found out that gas/oil mix will go bad in that amount of time. Motor barely would run so I drained all the gas out of the carb and tank and mixed fresh fuel and she fired right up and runs even better then I can remember from the last time!
Wife wants me to not ride it anymore and sale it because of the blood thinners I am on, she thinks im going to wreck and bleed to death but hey I got to have some sort of fun.

How about using road rash protection? I completely understand the need of riding for fun.

Yea I suppose If I wore pants instead of shorts. I really hate wearing pants when riding because I have a shift kit bike and I ruined a few pairs of pants getting the pant leg stuck in the crank gear even with the guard in place that sick bike parts included.
I tuck them in my sock now so haven't ruined any lately, I guess Ill just tell her Ill not go faster then 15mph, I made the mistake 6 months ago of having her pace me right after it was broke in and jetted down and she saw I was capable of going 35mph on it.

I'm with you there....I'm on blood thinners now too and have noticed it in minor bumps and stuff.
But....
What's the point of living forever if you have to sit in a padded box to stay safe?

Exactly! I gave up allot of stuff in the last 2 months including beer, coffee, Mexican food , pizza, basically I cant eat anything that tastes really good, (sodium) or drink anything that gives me any kind of buzz so I think I can have a little fun on my motor bike... I do wear a dot approved helmet so at least my head is covered. i am really careful and have good brakes, I am constantly maintaining the bike.
