rews2 is starting off with a positive reputation.
I remember those old KZ's had a lot of power and needed more brake to slow it down as I remember. Nice bike. Anybody remember the old yamaha RD400? Torquey 2 strokes.

I ain't been doing much. Truck is running good so I've just been driving it. School starts on the 19th for me so I'm kinda getting ready for that.

I have a double front brake system I need to bolt onto the Kawi. This one is a 1978 KZ1000. Top speed of 130mph I think, which was huge for the time.

I have to wait until December of 2015 until a class opens up. I'm trying to phone up my uncle to see if he'll take me on his logging company while I wait.

There was a whole lot of rubber necking going on when I had that thing in the back.

Actually, what's gotten me into trouble the most is my dirtbike. Before I had a truck, I'd ride it on the street. Four times within two months I encountered police on my way to trails. I've now customized the crap out of it so I refuse to ever ride it on the road again as it is one of the most identifiable bikes in town right now.



I've been customizing toys for as long as I could afford them. Here was my old bike I did a few years ago.



I'm excited to get at my truck. I've been accumulating parts for it. Tear down begins on the weekend.

Shoot, I'm taking mine apart this weekend too. Swapping in my new tranny. Hopefully it won't be too hard. I think the only problem might be the driveshaft length.

$100 and you can have the driveshaft shortened, not a big deal.

Yea I know. I can even do it myself. I built the driveshaft in our 67 galaxy.
