Default Back in the saddle

After a 7 year break from bikes I'm back with a small converted enduro and loving it.



In Texas summer is our winter break. I'm just working on all of the maint items and conversion stuff at the moment. Should have it tagged to ride legally by the end of the week.

I've been riding all week and damn have I missed it. Except I always need more power, a Katana 600 does not cut it.

My First bike was a NX125, enduros are baller.

Very Cool.

Which reminds me of when I went to Costa Rica, there were full on motocross bikes and four wheelers riding the streets with tags on them. They do not have to fool with any add on crap like mirrors or turn signals either.

Damn I love that country. Cheap beer, cheap women, and dirt bikes on the streets. What more could a guy ask for?

Got my inspection and went to the DMV to get the tags yesterday. So now I'm legally riding a dirt bike on the street.



I got revved on by a Corvette yesterday so I just cut across a field, its nice to have a hooligan tool.
