The Motorcycle project continues

Das Bike before:


Das Bike after a long lunch hour in the hot sun and with a skinned knuckle or two:


Sissy bar and saddle bags.


Because everyone needs to be safe when I'm popping wheelies ...


Because I'm all about safety.  So after about $800, I'm about where the other bike I had wanted was, only this only has 6,000  miles instead of 30,000.

Looking sharp!

Be proud of the skinned knuckles. It always works better if you leave blood on it.

If you can pop a wheelie on that, I want to see video. Between the low CG and forward foot controls, getting off of horizontal isn't going to be easy.

Why are most of your bike pics outside the pub? We should meet up for beers...

Very nice! If you're not bleeding you're not doing it right... :-)

Looks nice!

I'd lend you my Harley Davidson "Busted Knuckle Garage" t-shirt, but you're not riding American Iron...

...and as others have said, skinned knuckles are a sign you're "doin' it right".

If the bags are touching the pipes that might cause problems.

We have got to reconcile our schedules!
Lets get some miles on that thing!
