I just got a 3D Printer
It’s been a few weeks since I blew up the coolant overflow hose because I’m an idiot and did not get a vented overflow tank, work has been a little crazy, and my roommate has been on nights so I’ve been riding the GSXR when I need to take a bike in and skip those pesky tolls (Motorcycles in EZpass lanes around me are…
Family stuff came up the weekend before the dragon trip, don’t have the time to take off both weekends. Damn. Have a picture of my completed helmet.
My coolant overflow bottle did not have a relief valve, so one of the coolant lines burst, the bike is sitting in the garage until I decide I want to fix it. I did get around to vinyl wrapping my new helmet, I’ve only had it for a few months now so it makes sense I fuck it up.
After getting everything wired up, mounted, torqued down, taken back off, remounted, retorqued down, and tested I took the Ninja to a local bike shop. Their first question? “Did you actually ride this here?!”
That is all.
This... This has been a long time coming (74 days). I took the Ninja out for about a 20-minute ride earlier before my self-preservation instincts got the better of me. I’m taking it into a shop to double check my work, do some general maintenance that I just don’t want to deal with, and let me know it’s safe enough to…
The new front rim is on, front brake rotors are bent to all hell, and new ones are on the way.
I have an issue, I like building things. I probably enjoy building things more than using them after. I like learning new tricks, finding out what works and what doesn’t, and so long as I don’t actively need it to go to work, I actually like the work itself. I do really, really, really wanna ride this, but wrenching…
New rim and clip ons came in, the speedometer is placed about where I want it, new brake light switch is on too, but the damage to the brake mount may be too much to repair and I might need another one. I need to pull the front end back apart and check the front brake discs to see if they are bent, slap them on the…
Stormcloud Gray is the final color choice, we can call this project StormBroken
New forks are ON!
Pic related as it’s the style I’m going for.

Stolen car (according to the police who failed to catch them) ran a red taking a right turn, proceeded to use all 3 lanes to turn causing traffic to slam on brakes and swerve, I hit the white line on the median, slowed down, checked to my side to ensure it was safe to get back in the road, and the car in front of me…
So a quick update:
Picture is an old parts truck I had circa 2009
Or, did the really take you that long to shove a paper clip in your clutch?
This is actually a few month old picture, and the car has NOT moved since. House, other car(s), kiddo, and a few other things have gotten in the way, now I’m like 2 projects away from literally just swapping the starter on this so I can drive it!
I have been watching Vikings and gravity falls so i missed the earlier ones, let’s break this down
