Just got home from work and test rode it after shoveling a path up mu driveway and no more chain skip! Crack her open in first gear and she gos right to 12 oclock, smashed on the rear brake and slammed her down and nothing seems to have broke! That was the last test i wanted to put her through before starting the registration process.

nah I'm serious. The few pros on here, and the people that try to emulate them, sometimes have their heads so far up their asses. Look at the votes for fighter of the month. sometimes ducati monsters win, and svs. up against shit that takes real fab skills. your bike embodies everything that it is to be a streetfighter down to a t. you legitimately do not give a fuck, butchered a bunch of shit to get it to work right, and did it on a shoe string budget, and got it done relatively quickly. cause you needed or wanted the shit to go. look at your pics lol. All the shit you have in the background, all the beer everywhere, shit is a total mess of tools and parts. its the most realistic representation of what this shit is actually like. We can't all traffic shit to pay people a fortune to build us cover bikes, or live in socialist paradises where it snows 9 months out of the year so there ain't shit else to do but have a flawless shop where we thoughtfully build nice custom parts and bikes and shit. reality isn't instagram friendly. Def my favorite build ever on here.

I just drove 12 hours to get 2 bikes. I be tired yo. lol. but I picked up a nice f07.

Well thanks man i appreciate your perspective and tend to agree. When i started using imgur to host images i made the mistake of posting publicly and this one guy was trolling all these pics telling me how terrible i was cuz my garage was dirty. I work between 70-100 hours a week and have a home and pregnant wife to tend to and trying to get this full custom build with a bitch of a motorswap done in only a few months all while slowly trying to maintain any kind of interest and/or momentum with my several other builds/projects currently in progress and also manage to find time to drink all those beers somewhere in between all of it. damn its overwhelming just thinking about it all.

now im exhausted.

on a positive note tho i have totally committed to getting a roll off dumpster and doing a wild spring cleaning as soon as weather is appropriate.

It was 50 degrees today and i took my 900rr for a ride about 20 miles and it was enough for me to realise how truly stupid this build is. Im no less enthused about it, another one in the rotation and in the books is cool but it really made me remember why i built it and that purpose was "dual sport" i cant wait to put some knobs on this thing and hit some trails. I dont know i been drinking. I just love motorcycles and building shit. Got my new front wheel in the mail today, exited to ride it with no front wheel wobble anymore. And now i can pass inspection and get her on the road to put through the paces prove itself before i build custom subframe and tear down for paint and jazz.

I rode it today with the new strait front wheel which was a good feeling because i could finally see what the bike was about and hit some corners a little bit. Couldnt get to crazy cuz it snowed last night and alot of salt and slick but it felt good none the less. Very light and tight and tractions not a problem because it makes shit for power.

time for a turbo then
Haha not worth the trouble. I know that sounds ridiculous considering this whole build dosnt seem "worth the trouble" but a turbo would take a slow 40hp reliable bike and make it a slow 60 hp unreliable bike. But when i get bored who knows.

Im limited to the back roads around my house cuz its not registered yet but this thing aint as slow as i thought i just road it for the first time with a tach and speedo and i was short shifting pretty bad before and when i thoght i was only doing around 50 i was really closer to 70. This bike might end up not being as stupid of a build as i thought. Almost makes me want to do a piston and some head work. People do say these motors are bullet proof when left alone tho. Anyone have any experience with these big single yamaha engines?

Who gives a shit about horsepower, 52 hp is good enough for 110mph, it's smiles per mile and torque to rip up the twisties that matters =D
True story. I got the bike registered on friday and have had a shit eatin grin on my face all weekend rippin up backroads. This thing handles incredible in the corners. And wheelies great. Slow first gear wheelies have a beautiful balance point. Has no problem bouncing right up to bp in 3rd gear either.

I have missed you weirdos, past few years been a little crazy. Sold my house in February now I'm renting a house with a pretty decent garage. Bought myself a cnc plasma table and new tig welder. Took a week off for my birthday a few weeks ago and had along lost of things to get done and I got it all done by Tuesday do I decided to give this build some attention. This bike kind of got stuck in the state it was in because it was too much fun to ride I never wanted it off the road long enough to do the finishing work.

Then I started toying with ideas for tail.
