This is a list, but also a rant. I would appreciate to never have to see these car cliches again.
I was walking with my girlfriend, not really paying attention until a super clean reflection off of black paint caught my eye. Lo and behold, a fantastic RHD Skyline. Not a GT-R but still beautiful.
Because I drove a rental-spec Nissan Altima SV, and kinda I liked it.
Which brings my total count to 2. It’s a 2013 Street Triple R. Relatively high mileage meant I got it for a good price. Condition is good but needs a bit of love. I’m happy to not be a squid finally!
One of my friends came over yesterday and parked in my spot because the significant other took the G35. The reds almost match up.
Eagle Talon. What a majestic name for a car.
FML. Sharing my frustrations because I really really want the bike you see above. I want to move away from a supersport on the street and get something more comfortable. But what does my insurance company think about that?
All the recent FCA posts on the FP got me doing some unnecessary car shopping and I stumbled across the Jeep Grand Cherokee configurator. You can pick from 8 different trims! 8!!! Why??
Over the weekend we sold my girlfriend’s CBR250R. Sad! But good riddance as well. Hot take: this is not a great beginner’s bike.
These show up at cars not coffee all the time but still not an everyday sighting on the road.
Yamaha FZ6R. It did the job well enough for me and my girlfriend on the back. There are some fantastic roads on Maui here with no tourists if you know where to go.
The weather is garbage with thick, wet snowflakes that will turn into rain come evening. It’s been a busy week and today is no different. Here’s an artsy-fartsy GIF of my reward when today’s over, a nice bottle of Redbreast Irish whiskey.
This was a long time coming - over the weekend we finally put my girlfriend’s bike up for sale. Although I was never a huge fan of the little CBR250R, letting go of this motorcycle most likely marks the end of her riding career. It’s the correct step, but I’m kinda bummed about it either way.
#humblebrag, but I feel like I kinda get to. I rode my bicycle to work nearly every day for almost a year regardless of conditions. It was fun, difficult, sometimes scary, but kept me sane because I hate driving in the city and contributing to the problem of traffic. Not to mention the sense of accomplishment. My…
My first bike, a Ninja 400R. Sold to my co-worker and made way for my next Kawasaki, a ZX-6R.
Found on Facebook Marketplace. “Car”. Goddamn. Sure, many people are selling their ride on FB but at least put a little bit of effort into it. The description reads
Gearing up to do a track day which would’ve happened at the end of last year’s season had my ZX-6R not been stolen. My Shoei GT-Air is a great street helmet that has a drop-down sun visor so that means it only meets DOT specs and not ECE, making it track-ineligible. I went shopping and tried on a few Icon and HJC lids…
Because that’s all I took. Because the show has become so stale I don’t think I need to go back for another 5 years.
at having the most boring colours ever imaginable.
She sits there, quietly. Ten cylinders emitting no noise. Soon enough dust to write “wash me”. I say “Hello, R8" every time I pass by, but never get a response.
