    I believe it! I have a 140cc on my '67(ish) Trail 90. Going 60mph on skinny 55 year old wheels is terrifying.

    I used to live in Mukilteo, love the whole Puget Sound area, riding there and being there…..except for dark season. Go to work in the dark, work all day, go home in the dark. I loved motorcycling there ~4months a year!

    My CBR1000 I had when I arrived there. My FJR that replaced it. Unfortunately, I have no CBR pictures from my riding.IMG_4374.jpg IMG_4436_3_1.jpg IMG_4430.jpg IMG_3838.jpg

    I don't remember who here told me to light up the duck, but since the wife was away and I don't want to go outside in the rain I decided to throw some LED's in the duck and wire it to my ignition.

    Well it's the first day of winter, shortest day of the year. About 3 months until riding season for me.

    It's one of those weld yourself All-Pro racks. I grabbed it for like $300.....so couldn't pass it up :rofl:

    I really wanted one of the Brute Force bed racks that mount inside the bed...but just couldn't swing that cost.

    i had a all pro rack years ago but mine was aluminum and i loved that thing! best rack i ever had! but sold it because i got the trailer and got a camper shell haha

    my issue now is i want to keep my tonneau cover but its hard to do when i also will need a bed rack soon once the m100 is sold off.

    I found a 6ft utility bed not too far from my parents. I'm thinking about grabbing it and then building a slide-in camper. I could leave all my camping crap loaded up and just start using the truck as a camping rig. I priced out the 2x2 aluminum tube/insulation/etc. My only issue is how to skin it.

    I managed to ride in to work this morning. 33 degrees but calling for about 45-46 this afternoon when I leave.

    Funny thing is that one of our new hires was ahead of me coming down the last 2 miles to our shop and it's a nice somewhat twisty road. He's driving an old PT Cruiser and i caught up to him pretty quickly. He saw me catching up and thought at first it was a cop because of my extra lighting until I got really close and he realized it was a bike. He said he looked down to make sure he wasn't speeding first and then got nervous wondering why I was coming up that fast. I got a good laugh out of it.

    That’s crazy, I have a street legal trail 70 and it’s so slow, I would feel much more comfortable zipping around on your bike with the extra power.

    On a side note, was the grab bar above the rear fender added by you or was it already there when you got your bike? I’d like to have one :)

    The small ones aren't that bad. The 8ft ones typically weigh b/t 400-600lbs. Figure maybe 300-400 for the 6ft'er

    i guess that would be close to the oem bed weight would you chop it up a bit to make it more capable for offroad? those things sit pretty low usually

    Probably not.

    This is basically what it will look like

    He ended up chopping it.
