The bike painting is done!

You can't really tell from my dingy garage photos but the white is a sparkling pearl white, so it has a lot more depth in person.  :inlove:

I am very partial to red and white ninjettes.  Only bad part is that when people first see you they will slow to a crawl until they realize it's not the police.  :o

So they'll almost get down to my speed! :lol:

The case mount was done by Giaka, the bike's previous owner.  I'm pretty sure that he made it himself but you could shoot him a PM and ask. :bigok:

:lol:  There is the downside to obscure graphics in that people have already thought some of the icons are gingerbread men and soccer balls. ;)

They dont play hockey in San Jose, they choke. Much like they are doing in Anaheim right now.

Hey now, a 0-2 series for Anaheim isn't choking; that's just losing like normal people.  It doesn't even warrant mentioning in the same sentence as the phenomenal clusterfuck that was our post-season. :lol:

Needle and thread . . . .is this for post game stiches?
We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
