No skiing or winter vacations here, but some good ol' fashioned bike building. Now i know it's not a european bike but I'm a european sort of so here's my 79 GS1000 suzuki with a euro flair

note the very sexy homemade triple trees and use of really cheap gixxer running stuff and tiny seat made out of alloy

the headlight is going to be an epoxyed world war 2 gas mask with 2 piaa driving lights installed in them..
and the exhaust is 4 home made down pipes with a daytona carbon can (There now it's euro) cut in two and bunged back together all nice like.
The rear tail light will hang under the seat and thats it
The whole thing then gets painted in a glorious shade of matt black and the seat is getting some gel foam and wrapped with black duct tape
The rubber mallet on the bench is for throwing at the wall when some of the bastard parts won't fit the way they are supposed too..
The battery is a ducati racing dry cell unit shoved into a small electric box currently under construction
When the bike is finished I'm going to stalk Sean on it to make him ride his daytona a little more this summer

I know McKinney is a few miles from Burleson but I'm pretty sure we're in the same weather system. Need to check that forecast. Of course, you may have not gone outside at all today so it's possible that you didn't realize that temps stayed in the 30's all day and that we are supposed to be getting rain and possibly sleet over the next 2-3 days.:redflip
