There's light at the end of the tunnel.

Sitting here at work, surfing the web for non-work related subjects, I hear a noise in the distance.

The noise is a mid-pitched whirl, throaty, yet restrained. It's getting louder, thus it must be getting closer.

I'm intrigued, I've heard these sounds before, but where? When? I was stumped.

As the noise approaches me, I spin around to take notice of this odd sound.

The windows rattle a bit as the blue & white GSXR rolls by.

I rejoiced, as I have renewed my faith that summer will come.



Also saw a Honda cruiser on Family day, now that I think about it.

Oh the weather is warming up nicely. Anyone taken their bikes out yet? buy any new stuff for the bike over the winter?

I have a new chain and sprocket that needs to go on, and the carbs need a cleaning & syncing.

Aside from that, nothing new. i havent taken the bike out yet, gotta get those things done first.

I've read that ResidentEvo and AudiInProgress have, though.

I've been out for 2 weeks now. It's the greatest feeling in the world.

:)

I'm going to need a new rear tire right away here.

Ordered my new tire yesterday... Regular price $321, but they must have thought I was sexy or something because they jumbled around the numbers and sold it to me for $213.

I made 100km this year, so awesome to get back. I just finished a footpeg signal mod, and I love it.
Hey ckxtreme, how hard is it to change sprocket and chain? I was thinkin of doin it before I star riding daily.
And wwhere did you get the chain from?

Are you asking because you're still interested, Rob?

You know it...

But we can't both fit on your little crotch rocket.

So I'll pick you up on the Victory. You can ride bareback if you want?

You can get a sprocket/chain set from just about anywhere online.

It's not hard to change out, its really just a couple bolts. I think the hardest part is taking the chain off (you need a tool for it).

I got an EK Gold chain & sprocket set for $170.00

You should sand it down, to get the oil\grease off. Or better yet, a burnout will do the same thing
