Still leaking something (I know, I know), tires, the side needs more clear coat and so does the bumper, and I'm having this annoying vacuum problem. Probably gonna try and find one of those M50 conversion kits used, this hose crap isnt working anymore

Maybe it's the location? I sold my M50 in about a week.

I'm sure you could get rid of them quick at $600-700 each.

You've got it on craigslist, though, right? I noticed you had it on bfc, but you won't have much luck there with an engine.

Yes, on craigslist.

Had two dudes text me about it, said they would get back to me, then nothing. Typical craigslist.


In other news, might be picking up a 2000 GSXR 750 for around a grand, needs a little work but not much. They go for $3k+ in good shape.

Any recommendations for motorcycle gloves guys?

Looking for something inexpensive, and won't be too warm. City commuting (mostly).

I have some nice textile gloves that are nice and breathable, have leather pads on the palms, and CF knuckle covers. Love em!

I'll go check and see what brand they are.
























Eventually.

They act as though pigeon racing is something new in the US. It's been around for at least a hundred years.

Think I might order a cooling hose kit today. Does anyone know if anyone is running a good deal on one right now? I saw one for $130 but I can't remember where. I wanna go as cheap as I can without buying something that's going to explode in 6 months.
