Hello Everyone!

I had a huge spiel typed up but my firefox closed and I lost it all... So I'll just summarize what I was going to say.

- Bought subaru.
- Started saving up for STi swap
- Firends wanted to buy bikes
- We all bought bikes.

Here are pictures of my first bike ever. My 1999 CBR 600 F4 :D

Some things that I have done and the previous owner has done.

- Full Akrapovic Exahust (headers and all).
- K&N Drop in
- Cleaned/Jetted/Synced carbs
- Smoked Windscreen
- New tires front and rear
- New brake pads front
- APE Cam Chain Tensioner - to fix the notorious cbr rattle
- Woodcraft Frame Sliders (delrin)
- Hotbodies undertail
- F4i tail section
- Flush mount turn signals
- Removed all decals.

I believe that's it.

Here are some pictures of my gear and some more of the bike.

Just bought the Arai on the left

Oh, bike is currently torn apart due to having the frame painted black.

Also, that's not my Cavi haha my bike is at my friends house due to my mom willing to kick me out of the house if she finds out I have a motorcycle.

Welcome.

Funny thing about moms, they get persnickity when they think their kids are in danger. My mom and dad bought me my first minibike when I was 9, then a Honda 50 when I was 11. I'm now 51, and when I bought my Road King last year my 85 year old mother asked why I wanted another one, they're so dangerous.

Seriously? You started it....

LoL Guess I'm in the totally opposite camp. My mom loaned me the money for my bike. Guess it doesn't hurt that she rides as well...actually, we took the MSF course together 15 years ago. Welcome aboard!

Lol blast from the past!!

Long story short.

May 10th, 2010

I was involved in a pretty significant bike wreck. Another rider (3 weeks in) hit a bump, got headshake at 90-100mph, gave it more gas then hit me going 120mph. I walked away, he wasn't so lucky. He broke nearly every single bone in his body.

Fast forward to last wednesday (3-16-2011).

I picked up another bike! :)

2003 CBR 600rr
11,500 miles
-1/+3 sprocket change (so more like 8500 miles)
D.I.D. gold chain
Scotts Steering Dampener
Lowed 3" (I am raising it back up, previous owner was a short fatty lol)
New rear tire (pilot sport I believe)
Full two brothers exhaust.

Picked her up for a pretty good deal off a friend :)

Won't be able to make it for that :( Bike needs to be raised back up and I want to get a different front tire.
