    Thanks for all the kind comments! Love hearing them.

    As for the track day...

    Ruptured my tendon on my finger early this year. Surgery was on March 15th. Still in a splint.
    Don't know if my hand strength will be "Track Ready". Haven't been able to work on shit, let alone ride.
    Looking like mid May to June for my first ride.

    :-(

    Was told it really helps the healing process of the outer tissue instead of having one long straight line.
    Plus it looks cooler.

    I was able to get a free "Tattoo" as well this spring. Broke my ankle and had to have a plate installed. I wouldn't know what to get in a tattoo, so my only permanent marks are from scars! My "free tattoos"! P_20170521_140919.jpg P_20170616_203520.jpg

    Thanks.

    Cheap white paint job, but shit loads of prep. Had to take advantage of the last of the 60+ degree days a couple weeks ago. After polishing, it actually came out pretty good. The white is a little bright and there is a shit-tonne of debris in the paint. Didn't have time to make a "booth".

    Graphics I created on the fly to help bring together the inspiration of the NR750 HRC race bike. They are hand cut from vinyl, which you get right up on you can tell in some spots, but back up a bit and it looks pretty good. Very few "straight" lines made it a bitch, hand cutting very slight parabolics and arcs.

    Still need to cover the seat cowl pad in black (which I have). I'll take some better shots of the bike and the modified bodywork in the sun (hopefully) on Saturday. And I have 3 tiny brackets for the lowers that need a little shaping and a quick shot of black. Oh and I have a plan for the front turn signals utilizing the stock holes.

    Finally a little road work. Rode to Duvall on a shake down ride through some twisties along the Snohomish River. This bike is magic.[​IMG]
