Rain has been here, so no riding for me (sorry I'm not that hardcore.) Been playing with the closest thing to a motorcycle..

I did buy a cheap Miata off Craigslist and spend the last 2 days giving her some love.


Oil change, coolant change, air filter.


Gave her a wash, clay bar, compound, polish, and wax. (Before/After)


Tomorrow the brakes come in, as do the new spark plugs and wires.

Boy, was that old paint looking rough. Still nothing amazing, but it's passable until I can do a respray.

It's a little colder here.  These are from early December.  We got a foot of snow.  More expected the coming weekend.

Ski on,

True dat!

But I like having seasons again.  This is from day before yesterday.  We had a spell of freezing rain.  Rare here, but beautiful to see.

Ride on,

F dude let's drink some beers in the garage and read 'em...was watching some old youtube videos of saddleback MX park and kind of felt like the golden age of motorcycles/dirtbikes was 60's/70's/80's

What did I do today? Wussed out. Took the trash out before work and made the executive decision that it was too cold to ride. Not so much on the way to work, but I have a meeting tonight in LA, and the hour-long ride home at midnight would be a bit too chilly with my current gear.

Todd, what kind of paint do you use to paint the cylinder on your RD? Was it high temp powder coat?

Thanks,  :17:

I could hear my bike sigh, a thoroughbred wants to be ridden.
