    See now, that's just what I was trying to avoid. No one here needs the
    mental image of me suckling at the tender teet of sweet mother Demetrius.

    Maybe someday I'll be bright enough to have a purdy new bike in the
    garage but stay off it due to lack of a sheet of paper, but honestly I
    don't really look forward to being that smart.

    'course, I don't look forward to being that incarcerated either. Call it
    a balance.

    You are the gold standard to which I aspire, D.

    That sounds like it'd require money that folds.

    My days of buying a bike a week are far over. Let me recover from aquiring
    the EX.

    But wait. Why yah selling it? I've yet to see it's equal as a
    conversation starter.

    Damn. Leave for a year or two, and folks figure you're gone for good. No
    attention span, these days...
    I just noticed that the email I've been posting has been dead for two

    reedAYTflatrabbitDYOTorg, if you would.

    It seems I might even be in the great wet northwest sometime this
    spring/summer. You still up around Microsoft country?

    Well... Fr'instance, on lap two or three, you might find that stock two-piston
    sliding caliper single disk front brake system to begin fading a bit. Ever
    thought about a CBR600F3 front end? An EX500 will never stress the brakes of a

    Then, we can talk about *which* Penske shock would best serve your needs....


    What? You're not *racing* that bike?????

  10. Sow's ear, silk purse. The only reason why these fogies soup up EX500s
    Reed, is cause they do not have the balls to race the 600s.

    Testicular fortitude IIRC, is your forte. If you ever go racing I'd be
    mighty disappointed to see you on anything less!

    Actually, in SF, the towing and impounding is privatized. The tow yard
    petitions the DMV for the right to sell the vehicle when they are owed
    money that is not being paid. Interestingly, the government never takes
    ownership in this case.

    I agree that they should have returned the difference, and apparently
    most tow yards do. This one said they don't have to. Ugh.
    It's nice to be back.

    I'm not planning on spending much time on the track with it. Do hate the
    front suspenders with a passion, though. Been ok with the brakes up to
    this point. Current plan calls for having Phil at aftershocks throw
    Goldvalves at it and rebuild the front suspension. Looks like I'd be
    looking at $300-400 for that. What would a CBR F3 front end run me? How
    much more to get it attached?
    Penske fan, eh? Go on...

    Particularly, I'd be interested to know which can be made to fit so I can
    watch ebay.
    Not at current. But that doesn't mean I enjoy feeling the front end
    bottom constantly.

    Buy it. Someone, anyone, one of you, buy it.

    Frankly, if I were to really want more track time, or if I got a burning
    desire to race, it would simply mean another YSR50.

    I suppose that would leave no question as to my masculinity.

    The Yellow one?

    How much?

    Does it wheelie?

  19. They're still acting as agents of the government, though. I assume that
    comes with some restrictions.
    I wouldn't take them at their word. At least -talk- to a lawyer. Of
    course, iirc, you financed the bike, so any difference probably goes to
    your lienholder. Still and nevertheless, it would lower the debt that you
    no doubt still owe.

    Good to see you back, btw.

    I'd be a happy boy to get $1500. All offers entertained.
    Well, it's chain drive...
