Tank Test

What a day, chock full of studying for my midterm tomorrow oh joy…..well not so much studying, but the midterm is still tomorrow haha!

Decided to go on a motorcycle ride today, 2 hours turned into 3 turned into 4….oh well it’s done and I had fun.

Today was the first test of the new gas tank that I installed this last weekend. I have yet to experience any issues (aside from the initial fill at the gas station). There is no loss of power and starts on a dime *knocks on wood*

Went for a ride today off paradise road, there was more there than the last time I went….tree’s had fallen down left and right….made for a very interesting ride to say the least! At the end of the trail I met up with 3 other riders, one had a snazzy plated KTM that I envied, another had a CRF450x (nice bike there too) and the last had a yamaha, didn’t catch the model number….or most of their names to be honest haha. (The one I did get was Gabriel, nice guy)

These guys rode pretty fast, we all turned around and left and I pulled up the rear to see if I could keep up, I did keep up….but they definitely gave me a run for my money! Hadn’t ridden that hard in MONTHS, but all in good fun. I only fell once…I was pissed…tweaked the bars….have to get those fixed soon…. I also managed to pop a fuse as I swam through the dozens of streams on my bike (fun fun!) luckily I was able to push start my baby to get her running until I could bust out the repair tools back home!

Well for those who care, and those who don’t, here is a little post-ride eye candy:
