UPDATE: Forcefield Pro L2 Back-Protector Insert price changes

Posted in Gear by Me on March 25, 2009

Don’t say I never did anything for ya! I get more hits on my review of my Rev’It! Ignition jacket than any other post on this blog, and the majority of them come from searches for Forcefield Pro L2 back protector inserts. So to help you out I thought I would let you know that I just bought another one, this time in the states.



REVIEW: Arai Dark Smoke Visor for RX-7 Corsair

Posted in Gear, Reviews by Me on March 17, 2009

Getting blinded by the sun sucks. Squinting all day because it’s really bright out sucks. Glasses sliding down your face while you’re wearing a helmet sucks. Using tools to change your visor sucks. Arai solved all of these problems for me by selling me a replacement visor for my RX-7 Corsair helmet.

The EV-Orr

Posted in Exotics, Motorsports by Me on March 15, 2009

Lotus EV-0rr

This is the EV-0rr, designed by Xenophia Designs, and developed by Lotus and Evo Design Solutions. If they make a street version of this bike that retails for less than $20,000 this will be the future of motorcycles. For now we will have to make due with drooling over the illustrations. Eventually we’ll be watching it at the TTXGP and then, maybe, riding one. More at Hell for Leather Magazine.

2009 Modifications: Progress Report

Posted in Modifications, My Bike by Me on March 9, 2009

I got a chance to take a crack at that long list of modifications and repairs I told you about. Some of it went smoothly, some not, and some I am unsure about. Unfortunately the camera was out of juice so no pics this time.

Down Under… uh… tail

Posted in Modifications, My Bike by Me on March 4, 2009

hotbodies_undertail-full_viewI have acquired a hot bodies undertail for my SV. It is unpainted fiberglass. Here are some pics so you can see how it looks straight out of the package. Finishing and painting will happen along side the belly pan, but installation probably won’t happen until late summer/early fall, so stay tuned.
