I finally got her transmission working. She now joins Tucker (2012 smart), Neutron (2000 Buell Blast), and Velma (2005 Rebel) at my condo. They took a daily driver photo this morning!
I found this R8 with an IL license plate that says “SLOW” in Walworth, WI. :) Meanwhile, I’ve figured out some more stuff about the Buell’s second gear.
Update: I’m sober now...And the feels are hitting me like a hammer. A part of me just wants to hop on the Buell and ride towards the West Coast until I reach it, it breaks, or I run out of money, which ever happens first.
Recently I reported that the bike would shut down when sitting at a light after the tank had been filled to the brim. I had the wrong idea...
“I’m all for celebrating dads on their special day, but Father’s Day does its best work when it doubles as Single Moms Day.”
I’m currently having a fire sale of all my custom computers and phones. As much as I love them, recent events and the fact that I never use them has me getting rid of all but my gaming machine and FSX rig. That’s roughly six computers, six phones.
Learned two more things about Neutron (the Buell) after riding him for three hours straight...
Update: Found out more about second gear. It’s not that second gear requires me to be at a higher speed, it’s just that when I accelerate hard, I use more force to shift into second. I figured this out by doing a hard shift into second at slow speed and the “lugging” wasn’t there. If I don’t shift with aggro force,…
Who is daily driving a motorcycle EVERYWHERE? This girl. :3 Now I just need a good (but not expensive) helmet camera. I think my YouTupe repoot will pe even petter with a trans motorcycle adventure theme to it.
It’s becoming more apparent to me that when someone calls in a wellness check, it’s not too uncommon for officers to arrive with their guns drawn. I’m not sure approaching someone going through a mental crisis with your gun drawn is the best way to go about it. As history has shown, a situation that would normally…
She’s getting there! The bolts holding on the rear shell are stuck, so I’ll get them next time.
Starman 💜 gave me this banner. Some girls like flowers, some like jewelry, I like car stuff! I’m going to install the carb on Imperator Slowiosa and see if I can get her running.
Recent events and my swan dive into motorcycles have convinced me to reduce my hoard of smartphones and computers. Because I love Oppo so much, I want to give you all a shot at them, too! ♥
The reactions to this have been interesting...
$770 later and the Buell is home and undamaged! As a celebratory gesture, I ticked the idle up a notch. Mmmmmm, purrs like a kitten missing a cylinder. :)
Update of the update: I’ve been saved by an angel that shall not be named unless they choose to be! :) <3 Agh, I need to hug them so much!!! My Buell will Blast off again! ...ahem...legally, of course.
I figured I’d be okay carrying my cert just to get the bike home from my storage unit. Wow, was I wrong.
I did almost perfect on the practical exam!
I think I found the one thing that I may find more fun than smarts...
Got a battery, got some petrol, let’s see if she fires up!
