1:00 and i haven't smoked _anything_ yet today.

(for frame of reference, usually i've got a bowl and three or four smokes under my belt by high noon. wow, that's really bad, isn't it.)

*somewhat proud of self*

but pride is, of course, always tempered by something, and i have discovered that there is after all a limit to how low you can knee-drag a mid-1980s honda scooter. (no breaks, just bruises, i'm fine. yay leather. ;)

*sigh*

i don't know what to do.

got full leathers yet? if so, get some sparking Ti pucks and go scaring the locals with knee-down antics.

uhm- i think i'll need to finish the YSR before i go spending money on expensive full-body leather suits... ;) still trying to find a fucking gas tank for that thing... auction on ebay for one finished earlier today at $300. that's more than i spent on the *engine*.

i was looking at a decent leather superbike jacket the other day when picking up some 2-stroke oil... $400. ouch.

worth it, i'm sure, but for now the 2-year-old $200 leather jacket from wilson's did a decent enough job of restricting abrasions to the hands... and now it's got more "character". =)

indeedy...

... you don't truly own it 'til you've crashed it.

that being said, come out to the track w/ me. it's much better to crash on sand in full leathers than it is to slam into a minivan going the other direction.

*Fat fucking lecture*

BUNGHOLE, YOU'RE GOING TO FUCKING KILL YOURSELF ON THAT BIKE. YOU'VE ALWAYS SAID THAT, I'VE ALWAYS SAID THAT, AND ITS OUTRIGHT FUCKING LUDICROUS FOR YOU TO BE BUILDING THAT YSR.

You may not, but I certainly give a fuck whether or not you live or die. So fucking well be safe, or I'll kill you in the face. Capisce?

fucking chill. :P

i may have been at the top speed of the vehicle, but that's still 35mph... i tucked and rolled properly. i have a few abrasions on my hands and a sore hip. i do not need skin grafts, reconstructive surgery, or any medical attention of any kind, ok?

=)
