Righto! Last years exams were a success. Good thing I put the bike down for a bit.

What's next? I dunno. The bike is registered so my work is done. I probably won't be painting it this year. Engineering + the Port Kembla Steel works = an unreliable work load these days. Gotta watch those pennies. Bikes seem to be a penny sink. lol.
I have been thinking abou thte pain sheme a lot. I's like to go with a modern suzuki sheme of dark metallic blue, solid cobalt blue, silver and white.

I have a TY now (prolly mentioned that before) so it's gonna be a future project, maybe in 2011.

C'mon Westy

You are going to have to explain to us all why it was that the positions of the ground and the sky were suddenly inverted about half way through that film clip?

You can tell how much the RL vibrates becasue the internal microphone in the camera picks up all of the vibration and nothing else. The vibration even makes the picture wobble when your watching a play back of the films.

I went through a big puddle yesterday. Water splashed up to the air box. The Suzi stopped in the middle of the water. Poor little bike. I must fix. Where's my leatherman?

As it turned out, it was the spark plug. A four dollar plug has been doing a better job at not fouling ever since the sixteen dollar one was thrown out becasue it was rubish.
