Thanks guys.
Bought the S3 from a TXIC member (Stripperluva) here too

wrx_02,
Is that low mileage Aprilia RSV that was on RPM Cycle's lot?
I looked at that one when I was looking for 05- Sprint ST 1050

Yeah. It's still fairly chilly in the morning for me to commute to work but damn the weather feels good in the afternoon . Naked bike isn't wind friendly

Sure I can wait for another month for the weather to get warmer for any meet.

Yea they had 2 of them there. One was the Special Model that they still have and this one had like 1k miles on it with full warranty. I got a killer deal on it.

I should work on my will to make sure the soul eating succubus gets nothing now that I'm faced with the eventuality of eating the pavement either on this or my fixed gear.

Best day of my life.

Economizing, down to one car. Didn't want to leave the wife without a car for 3 days. Carried, 1/8th scale buggy and Truggy, and tools, fuel, etc.

60mpg > 25mpg too.

I got a picture of the object of my demise. TXIC, please ensure that I am buried with it.


I twisted the throttle all the way for the first time down memorial dr. The front wheel began to lift with me leaning over the tank and I giggled like a child and felt alive for the first time in 7 years.

As soon as this rain will let up we can meet up and ride. I was thinking Thursday after work sometime if we can get enough people to go.

That reminds me. I was riding the sportster this morning on I45 motor purring bout 80. Then a flash went by me, traffic was medium. But I could swear that guy was doing about 145. I was doing 80 and it like I was sitting parked and he was doing about 60 when he passed me. Not sure what type of bike it was but looked like a cruiser. Then I noticed the 4 exhaust tips, it was a new 200hp Vmax. Wow!
Funny, cuz there was a cop about a mile ahead that passed me earlier on a Goldwing, doing about 85.

Sold the SV

But I picked up a Honda XR400 for cheap, and its a beast!
Took it up to Shilo Ridge with some friends weekend before last, and I think riding dirt is just as much fun as track days.

I'm also riding a giant Suzuki Boulvard C90T, its not mine just on loan
