    That cap is hanging on the wall at my place. Pure art!

    I've spent most of my money on women, beer, cars and motorcycles. The rest of it I just wasted.

      If that is what a dry clutch sounds like I never want to have one. I reminisced the sound as back on the farm. It was the little flap that went on the tractor muffler to keep rain out.

        Two charity rides from one end of britain to the other, countless trackdays, commuting for the fuck of it and general abuse. Annoying mismatched brake calipers, horrible wavy discs and recently the annoyance of a 180/60 racetec rubbing against the swingarm...

          so the valves have been done TWICE in my ownership. Nice.
          The sprocket is still on, i replaced the chain last year. Really want to go back to a larger front front sprocket at this point, that gearing makes it shitty on the highway.
          That was also when you switched me to GP shift, that was a fun ride home

            We need a lot more pictures of the entries to make an accurate assessment!

            New and current entrants have until the 15th to post their use and abuse resume!

              I'll throw mine into the ring, I'll take some pictures this afternoon.

              Tach is mounted using bicycle rack parts and a brackets found in the garage. Tach cover is part of an old carbon can that came off of the original rat hawk, inspired by a contestant in the last hawk of the month. It's just resting there. The ignition is mounted with a piece of delrin.

              Fuse box held on by stainless steel zip ties.

              Exhaust is a mix of an old Remus can that was taco'd when I got rear ended on my 919 and a no name mismatched end cap.

              Battery tray is an aluminium box attached with various clamps and a SS zip ties, the rest of the tray is just a piece of plastic zip tied on.

                That tiny light is the brake light.

                Brake light, license plate holder and turn signals mounted directly to the seat with a bracket found in the garage.

                Bad bondo job, $5 paint job, mis matched color fender, mis matched wheels.

                This was going to be a somewhat legitimate build, but the WCHR was early this year, so I scrambled to cobble this together, so it's halfassed (get it?)

                      No front fender ( mud guard ) must be fun riding in the rain. Post up some more pictures and stories about your redhead stepchild's neglect and or outright abuse.

                              Yes yes it is really fun in the rain, you know right before work on a cold monday morning, nothing like it, although mud thrown in your face after work is quite soothing.
