happy birthday man. you sell that katana yet? i would try to sell my bike to try to upgrade but mint 650s with super low miles are going for like under 2500 on clist around here. that makes my bike pretty much worthless lol

well shes got some issues. tranny issues surfaced here within the last few days. but even at that i think im still in good shape. looking at all the individual parts in the trans on the OEM parts sites it shouldnt cost too much, and ill gain some experience tearing into it. learned a ton about the bike already from the forums. OH and i bought a house, closed on wed. so now i have a nice 2 car mancave to do all my work! heres a pic of that

Cool bike at an awesome price. Hope it doesnt need to much work. I wish I had a garage in my house and that driveway is huge man. I can see all your biker friends hanging out over your house with the grill going. That focus looks lowered about 1.3 inches.

Yep, Now that spring is here, but doesnt feel like it, I have a honey do list on top of my list. Actually the honey do list is year round but it get worse when daylight is longer. Finding time to ride is hard sometimes.

Must have been someone else then! I've been lurking on & off for the past few months (esp. in the FS section... need new shocks like NOW) and I just recall seeing pics of your car in that parking lot. Made me want smoked lens covers for the front signals.

Black '05 ZX5 SES here, bone stock for now. Probably not lowering it too much, winters get rough around here.

Houses and motorcycles will eat up the cash. Shit, wait till you have a kid and don't want her in public school. Especailly in my area which is 10 minutes from D.C. Oh yeah, get me the "F" out of here!!!

House > Kid > Motorcycle :) Tell you what though, start getting all antsy about mods on your bike, and that order quickly changes lol

yessir thats where it is. nice quiet place. but no, this is one good thing out of MANY bad things that fall into my lap. and even this is making me broke to the point of scrounging for gas money, starting to think it wasnt such a good idea.

I hope you're not going to destroy Thatbike .
If you're going to be stunting, you should be wearing the proper gear.
And why not spend a few more dollars on crash protection for your bike?
Another idea would be to take up off road riding?
Dirt bikes crash a lot better than street bike do, and cost a lot less to repair.

I relax a lot more on two wheels, when... I have my gear on. I really really like your 350!!! leave it stock, for the love of all things holy!
