2. If there's one thing I hate its the sportbike vs cruiser thing, the Harley's rule - metrics suck and vice verse thing. I can understand being partial to one type of bike, but to say that one specific bike/brand is far superior? No way. I believe a bike is about ALOT more than just the parts that put it together. Met this guy at fric 'n fracs that rides the r6 in the back. Rode in from st jo. His roommate rides a vstar. He dug the cruisers, I dug his bike. We both ride. Both have an appreciation for riding. I think this is how is should be.

1. Chains should be adjusted with 1/2" of play. This INCLUDES the total weight of rider/passenger etc. More weight tensions chain. Chain too tight results in a fucking annoying clicking sound and well... it just fucks a chain. By stretching it out. I'm not looking forward to replacing this chain. Actually I'm just not looking forward to spending $$$ on a chain. fuck.
2. Bright lights are good. Tagging onto a car to use their brake lights as headlights, at about 75, on backroads, during high winds, pitch black storm weather and lighting, fucking sucks. With a passenger that is. Alone, it would have been a hell of alot cooler. I'm going to eventually do some light modding on the ironhead. The stock light just doesn't cut it. Not for riding around with the lady.
3. Being completely away from civilization for awhile makes you appreciate the city just as being in the city makes you appreciate getting away. Atleast that's how I feel about this.
