Well... It's no longer Adventures of a Harley Chic Rider...

We traded my V-Rod in last year, 2011, for what you see in my pic to the left: Yamaha FZ6-R. I LOVE it! His name is SPARTACUS I think I'll change my post titles to: Adventures of a Biker Chic!

I haven't really ridden a whole lot in the past 2.5 yrs. I wrecked my V-Rod in August 2010. Not too much damage on the bike... On me however, was a total different monster. I tore up my left knee and shoulder. I didn't...

Will the naked lady come to life?

Posted 12-05-2011 at 07:47 AM by Curley (My Restorations)

As the winter months rolls in and Christmas looming around the corner, the project slowed down a little.

As you can see in the previous update, the lady is pretty much naked only with her heart in place!
We have been trying to get her started without the battery but it looks like the battery is needed. Took me some time to get around to buying the battery as i had to do stuff( some people call it "work"!) to pay bills, feed the family and restore a bike! ...

When i was a kid, my neighbor used to ride around the estate in his Norton. It made some noise but it just looked beautiful! He had a routine for riding the bike on Saturdays at 5pm every week.

I always looked forward to seeing the bike motor along the estate and the sound gave me goose bumps!

That was when i said to myself that someday i want to own something like that! I was 10!

From the dream of owning, it grew to restoring a classic and riding her...

Building Karma Capital

So I'm on my way home tonight from work and, as I'm coming through Granite Falls, I see a fellow motorcyclist sitting in front of the Nelson Petroleum station. He's kneeling down next to a pretty nice looking Yamaha XJ550, black in color. It looks just like mine, only chain driven. I can tell he's having problems so I pull in next to him.

Sure enough, his chain has come off and he has no clue on how to fix it. I examine the situation and quickly figure out the chain is balled up at...

The day started out well enough. Woke up pretty early and I was too excited about getting on with it to fall back asleep. April and I decided to get up and go after some breakfast.


Jeff (jdpesz) was scheduled later that day for a visit. He was bringing with him a new master cylinder and front brake pads. We were going to install both and then go for a ride. Well, that's...
