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

lets see, couple days ago i put a 24" tire on it.

feels better now (kickstand actually works now!) but it threw off my gear ratio :<

e-mailed pablo asking what chainrings the shift kit comes with. thinking it's a more economical purchase for it, rather than a single gear.

I just put a new tube in my rear tire. 3rd one in 2 months! The valve stem keeps getting severed from the tire and tube rotating on the rim, due to my tires being wider than normal balloons. This time I decided to try the tire-within-a-tire trick. Hope it works!

Adjusted rear brakes. 'bout it.

Car had to go in the shop for some work. Needed a computer to ask it's computer what was wrong. It answered around $1,400 of work. Gonna miss that car, snork. But strapped bike on the car, dropped it off and rode to work then home. Never really thought about it but our rides are really great back ups. Car was down and didn't miss a beat today and was early for work. Just thought that was cool. And ride home was awesome. Good day so far.

After a rally in 2008, I posted this Skarrd; (sadly, a true story)

"Last yr, after a libation or 3 with dinner, I couldn't keep up with the Whizzers on my china girl. my gas tank had slid half way off and my muffler guts fell out. I yelled at her "Not in front of the wizzers!" She ignored me. So I rode behind singin' at the top of my lungs ((no one could hear me with a st8 pipe)) "Born to be Mild..."

Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

I like smoke and lightning
Heavy metal thunder
Racin' with the wind
And the feelin' that I'm under
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

Like a true nature's child
We were born, born to be Mild
We can climb so high
I never wanna Crash

Born to be mild
Born to be milllliiidddd

Had to be there, snork."

Every motorized bicycle should have a theme song!

LOL @ Dan "born to be Mild"... I have a shirt design for this forum I submitted with "built to be wild" as the tagline... The still liked "not just for peddling any more" better... BTW Paul what about the shirts? Is gettiing warmer and we need something to show the pride when we ride LOL

MY Crannie build has been surprising me with how well it has been running. With some minor exceptions I have been riding like a fool... I did have to change out the stator the other day after running through a puddle and water getting into the ignition box and had an air leak in the CNS 1 carb that needed to be tracked down but other than that it is a running fool. I actually hit 38.6 mph today by my GPS...

I did work on the fenders and painted them black as well as the chain guard instead of the crappy cream color Huffy uses...

I also ordered my bike cards as it doesn't appear I can go out for a ride in peace without someone wanting to know where o get a bike like mine (I got waved down twice today alone, oh well better than police lights I guess)... Thanks Barely Awake for letting me use the background of your cards... Here is the proof from the printers:



$30.64 for 1000 cards is a heck of a deal I thought, sure beats me printing them and trimming them on my own...
