    I need to pick a new color to paint my bike. I am open to all suggestions if anyone cares to throw something serious out there...



    edit: ugh who am I kidding... what is this serious you speak of?
    Let me just get these all out of the way so that you guys don't have to...

    "omg paint it purple with turquoise wheels!"
    "plaid /thread"
    "you should vinyl wrap it in with every different kind of penis you can imagine."

    and last but not least "my uncle's brother's friend's daughter's aunt had a boyfriend who painted his bike flat black but then he wrecked it the next day and died so you shouldn't paint it flat black, and deffinitley not synergy green because green is bad luck and you will definitely fall and die."

    Actually one of the best looking bikes I've ever seen was flat black with all the GSXR symbols and stickers a pale silver color. Looked sweet. The wheels were black with a silver lip too. Almost like an aluminum color ya know?

    I wouldn't. I get that ones trash is anothers treasure, but that thing looks like it is not only a hunk of metal..but a hunk of rusting metal.
    You'd probably have to get all metal surfaces sandblasted/painted,
    do some serious engine/transmission work or purchase a drop in
    replace all bushings/lubricated things
    new shocks
    new tires
    handle bars don't look like they have any sort of controls on them so theres that to tackle
    and I'm not sure, but it looks like the foot peg/gear shifter may have been disassembled as well.

    Selling my CBR

    Hey I think my 21-23 year old midlife crisis is over and it is time for me to move on from my bike. I'm planning on selling it but I feel a bit nervous about how to go about doing so. How do I protect myself from someone either stealing or wrecking my bike for a test drive? Can I make up a document somehow saying, "sign here and if you wreck it you buy it."

    When I bought my bike I had the owner just drive it down the street for me. I don't want some punk kid or some idiot wrecking my bike. This commercial spoke to me.



    For those of you who have done this before, how did you go about it?

    Completely agree. They can sit on it take it's weight, play with the clutch and brakes. Rev it up, whatever they want. But unless they are ready to buy cash in hand and the only thing keeping them from signing the bill of sale is a quick ride up and down the street, no ride.

    I added this to my stable last night:
    2008 Ninja 250R. It's a little earlier than I was planning on to move up to a real motorcycle but I couldn't pass up on the deal I got for it. It has some lame Japanese symbols on the sides that will be coming off but other than that it's in great condition.

    It has a couple of cosmetic mods like flush turn signals and a cleaned up rear and a full performance exhaust that makes it sound like a bigger bike than it really is. It also came with the passenger seat that I put back on just in case.

    Congrats on the new bike. I don't foresee you getting into much trouble on that, but it should still be a ton of fun. Light and maneuverable! Looks great.

    I took some time today to ride it around and get used it. I love this thing. It's heavier than my scooter by a large margin so it doesn't bounce around as much and feels so much more stable in corners.

    Forgot to mention the pink(?) bar ends that will be replaced asap. I might just paint them flat black though.

    They come stock like that unfortunately, or that would be a cool idea.

    I still think it's the best paint scheme out of any sport bike made. I love the orange and black look

    Feeling like a little update. Bought some frame sliders, bar ends and swing arms spools for an install. Fun day, unfortunately the advertised no cut sliders were actually 'cut'. But it turned out well. I bought some carbon fiber themed trim tape to wrap a little around the cut edge to Nicen it up.
    I'm all geared up to, pics!
    Sorry for the small pics, I'm on 3G and I want to go to bed haha
