    well i went down yesterday

    happened when i was doing less than ten mph.was leaving a parking lot and reached over to zip my cuff on my jacket and the bars turned and i went down not too bad.banged my knee and some good bruises.went back to work and looked at the bike and the right side of the bar is bent and the brake lever was bent but bent it back. so now i would like to get a new bar but dont really know what there is to get.i would like to get the same width and height but stronger.so if y'all have any suggestions that would be great! about an hour after i got back to work i checked my valve clearances.i had planned on doing it that day and they are in middle of spec and took a half hour to do.not bad. im gonna put on the zeta brake lever assembly and later will do the clutch side. thanks all let me know!

    http://www.msf-usa.org/ great course.i had good coaches.One of them rides a drz-e and when i stood up on the pegs in the u-turn box (20 ft by 35ft rectangle that you do a right then a left u-turn in) he smiled and i made a u-turn on a 250 rebel in 17 feet by standing up and riding like i was out in a tight trail.test was simple.only 4 out of 12 passed though.one guy lowsided in the u-turn box and automatic failure on that he was ok.well time to start planning on where im gonna go.Any suggesstions on where to go in San Diego other than my parents 5 acre back yard? still have the deathwings till i get $100 bucks for the type 1 teraflex and a front of some sort.havent decided yet but i do pretty much 50/50 but want the agressive stuff.im gonna try and find another set of rims and put road smoothies on it so i can evade the weird flashing lights behind that much quicker hehe nope.havent been written a ticket for anything been pulled over and told to go home (grew up with the officers kids) fun times 3x3 and an fcr soon i hope

    $6000.00 after all the junk they add on along with a year of full warranty.it taught me a leeson: Always haggle! its a great bike though.a marine owned it before me and kept it really clean.he traded it in fora 1000cc crotch rocket dont know why anyone would want to kill themselves but to each his own, right?
