From what I read, stunters lower the rear tire pressure greatly to allow for a larger contact patch, which seems appropriate since it will be the ONLY contact patch.

Umm, I'm not sure if she was a stunter or a newbie just learning to ride ;) One thing is for sure, she is hugging the gas tank real good. That is one position that the guys don't want to be in when it comes back down hard.

Clearly a stunter, and that bike needs all the help it can get for that particular stunt.

After a couple weeks of snow and cold, got the FJR out for a 60 mile rip. Still makes me smile after all these years!!

Rode it to work. The new Laam seat is slipperier (more slippery?) than the last cover, so mental adjustments are being made. No tentative opinions until I get 5,000 miles on it.

Maybe some velcro patches on the seat and on my ass?

The seat came back from the nice folks at Russell Day-Long so I put it on the bike.

I don't' think there is any automatic ways to get banned over here on this site, but if there was, this would be it!




What is next week, Whip Tails & Chroming out the engine? LOL Kidding, if you like it's fine by me. Still doesn't mean it's not fucked up though!

There's something about a good looking blue-eyed girl waving two tassels at ya.

Oh wait... never mind…..

Talented ones can get those tassels spinning in opposite directions simultaneously. At least, that's what I've been told.
