not riding for a couple of weeks made me grumpy.
By moderator vote, pyramidhead has been suspended for this post.

I appreciate that he did later apologize and hope he will return and join us when his suspension is up.

I just picked up a used Arrow header on EBay for my Ninja 300. Going to mate it with my 2 Bros pipe. You'll need to do smog block off plates for proper tuning.

would hope it's obvious from this thread alone that i can handle friendly ribbing, but that comment genuinely rubbed me the wrong way.

correction accepted. i apologize, brown. won't happen again.
Don't worry about it.

I've had several barf breaks myself.

Easier, cheaper, bike will actually be faster, and it'll be legal.
that's one of the reasons everything i've done has been about weight reduction. i bought the exhaust not because it looks cool, or is loud, or i thought i'd get power (maybe 1hp? maybe.) but because it is the lightest one i could find at just over one pound.

i should be at about 20lbs gone from the bike so far, and believe me, that makes a difference.

i understand where your guidance is coming from, but turning the vehicles i buy into my own expression of engineering and art is kinda my thing, and i'd rather have a 300 right now. as i mentioned, i'm a SoMa townie- i live and work there and rarely even hit the freeway. anything bigger/faster would be a waste in terms of straight-line speed; and heavier, which is not what i want.

Wasn't so much the retaliation...striking back is to be expected and admired...name calling tho? That's always going to end up as a time out. I don't mind it so much. Just letting PH know the bap is coming and not to do it if he don't want it.

it took me a little while to figure out why there are ugly gaps in the bodywork now- my fairing stay is bent from when it was knocked(/run?) over, so it's all got to come off if i want that to stop bothering me.

the gf asked for a $250 lego architecture set for xmas, and she was fine with me requesting a new headlight, so merry xmas y'all. i hope you get bike goodies too.
