        Those ol' 750 Pantah engines are sleepers. If Bruce worked on it, then... it'll run good. Mine's about the same exact spec except with a Pistal 795 kit. 85hp on pump gas, about 90 on the good stuff! Shifting gears: Optional.

                Love you too man!

                You should see my garage, GS500 racebike in pieces, a Hawk in pieces, a Road worthy hawk (that I recently sold), an XR100 pit bike, My Race Hawk, My street Ducati 900ss, this race Ducati AND a 1986 Yamaha Radian I just picked up for a friend! I gotta slow this down a little. I do love the revolving door of bike though.

                I have to say... Going off to war gives you a little extra income for toys AND an appreciation for them.

                Unitl my wife gets pregnant I am just gonna keep trying to make slight profits, add to my "motorcycle fund" and upgrade as I can. IF WE get pregnant, MOST of this stuff will go (I'll keep a racebike and a roadbike)

                    Doc, just wondering if you'd be interested in adopting a 31 y/o boy? He enjoys motorcycles and is potty trained.
                    He even comes with his own Hawk and family.

                        Hey Doc, it looks to me like your trying to sell the new bike already. If your looking to turn a profit that's cool but there are better ways to make a buck than buying bikes on speculation. If you spent as much time focused on your racing program (and one bike) as you appear to be spending buying projects and flipping bikes there would be no keeping up with you.

                        You should be thinking more track time not more track bikes.

                        Hope to catch up with your NHIS crew this summer.

                            Where the fuck did that come from?

                            I have a hobby. (and quite possibly some motorcycle ADD). I decided when I was overseas that I was gonna take some money and buy a bike, fix it and sell it for a small profit, take that money and buy another, etc. I find it fun and educational.

                            On top of that I am starting to do work on friends bikes for free, just little stuff that I show them how to do, which I like alot and I learn alot.

                            I have "flipped" a couple bikes and made a little profit which helps to finance my race addiction. I was told racing was not going to be cheap and it isn't, I set a budget and I am sticking to it thanks to my "flipping' bikes.

                            I don't understand the negative connotation there Crash. Are you jealous?

                            My "Race Program" is coming along nicely. I pick up a couple seconds a lap per weekend. I think that pace is fine for me and I am having a blast.

                            I am also having a blast "flipping" bikes. If you don't like it, you don't have to. I would appreciate your not making judgements.

                            BTW, What is this better way to make money, rather than "buying bikes on speculation"? and what does that mean exactly? Do you think I am not smart enough to know a deal when I see one?

                              i know i cant say shit... i flip cars all the time.. lol..

                              nothing like getting a couple thousand dollar car for a few hundred, putting a few thousand miles on it, then selling it for several times what you paid... all for some minimal work.. usually nothing more then a weekends worth.
