• Adieu, Motard

    It seems like it was only yesterday when I picked up the SM610 from San Ramon… and it may as well have been. I undoubtedly have a history (mental illness) of buying, building, and then promptly selling. Don’t ask what’s wrong with me, because I can’t really say. Notwithstanding, I can give you a reason […]

  • A Husqvarna Afternoon

    There’s a local forum that I browse because it’s a useful place to buy/sell motorcycle stuff. I tend to also lurk their photo section, and in there they have a Motorcycle Picture Game. In this game, a participant goes out and takes a picture of his/her bike with a selected subject… then provides a new […]

  • It’s Wet Out

    It rained most of the morning today. As I went into my garage to bleed the brakes on the CBR for the third time, I noticed the sun came out and I was in the mood to try out my camera, so I rolled out the Motard. After bleeding the CBR’s front brakes twice, the […]

  • The Dark Motard

    This post will be slightly lengthy because I will be condensing over a week’s worth of work into it. I also didn’t take many pictures of the progress, mainly because I was too occupied this time with wrenching and figuring things out. And so the work continues… I spent hours and hours alone scrubbing down […]

  • Onto the Next One

    With the CBR more or less settled in, it was time to turn my attention to the Husqvarna. Maybe it’s just me, but I can’t remain content unless I put in some work… At first I was going to keep things low key and just do some cleaning and maintenance, but I’m usually not the […]

  • Husqvarna SM610

    With my CBR600RR being illegal to ride on the street and all… I still needed something with 2 wheels to mess around with outside of trackdays. The most obvious choice for me was a Super Motard. Just by staring at them, they radiate notions of fun. I personally wanted a Husqvarna because they had more […]
