Scrubbed in my new T30 EVOs and partook in a quality beverage.

Saturday at Malibu had a great ride.  :17:
5 VFR's and a CBR  :43:

This looks like THE Doug-Photo Enthusiast picture!  Nicely done!  Beautiful shot of the VFR's and the crystal clear blue skies.  It really captured the moment.  Glad you all had a great time.

Just got back from a windy day at Palomar. The temperature did not fool the mountain, as it was acting like fall regardless. The pine cones and needles have started dropping en-mass.

I was hoping this thread would get a bump - couldn't find it earlier...

Friday, but I've been offline all weekend.

Additional note to my 50k mileage figure...

The bike is a 2006, so the mileage for the vehicle isn't really super high... But when I bought it in June 2013, it had 6500 on the clock.

 :31:

Over 1,100 miles a month.

Slapped a new exhaust on the wife's 99 VFR800! Just in time for the bike to hit 85k mi on the next ride or two.

Took a trip to Idyllwild with thepretender this morning. The road up to there is fantastic with it's passing lanes and smooth pavement.

This weekend...

Adjusted my clutch, at which point the adjuster broke, and revealed a very frayed clutch cable, so the bike is parked for a few days. However, I also started painting a helmet...

Masking for the first color:





First color on:







Beginning the second color:





Third color on:





Masking removed:













First coat of Clear applied:









One coat of clear left to be applied, and re-assembly.

Tried to clean off some tape goo with the reducer, which stripped off a little of the purple near the tail... :( But I'm leaving it. Not bad for a nearly 25 year hiatus from using an airbrush.
