Serviced my bike installed the new akrapovic exhaust and went for my first ride since having my left leg destroyed by a carless driver in sep 2012.
God it felt good to be riding again. Bikes a 2010 Honda CBF600SA. Love this bike it's hands down the best all rounder I have ever ridden. Fast enuff to be fun stable well sorted suspension great ergo's and good factory luggage for long hauls (took it cross country in 2011).
Only got old pics at moment of the bike but looks same just a different exhaust can and a slightly taller Windsheild now.

The rate good ole Minnesota is going I might not be able to have my bike consistently out until August. Damn freezing rain, snow, and temp swings are getting very old.
Until then no pictures since it's still tucked away in the corner...

My '80 CB900. Runs great, I wouldn't hesitate to take it to Florida tomorrow. I love it to bits.
In the background is my '83 KZ440. Pics are, of course, crappy cell phone sourced.

Cool looking bikes so far, mine isn't going anywhere fast like this but I am working on it. Should start progressing better now that it is not 0 degrees out. Its a 79 XS650, I am working on shaving the original fork lowers, these are spare forks I got from a parts pile I bought to keep it as a roller. I have a 21" 64 spoke front Heritage wheel and 18" rear 48 spoke rear drum brake Heritage wheel I am working on getting anodized now so I can lace them up and get some tires so I can get my stance right. Gonna try my hands at dishing a tank out too, I have one with a dent I am gonna cut up and experiment on. These are after most all the frame shaving is done I just need to patch up a couple boo boos and decide on some tabs to keep near the carbs. I am gonna try to build my own exhaust too, its just a fun project to use my tools on, it will likely be a slow process as I get spare cash to do it. Gonna try to build a bike with a mix of styles, mostly chopper/street teacker blended together, a little scrambler thrown in maybe.
