I did get it from Babbit's. I love it. It is a lot of fun, gets a ton of compliments. The only complaint I would have about it is the passenger seat, slightly small. But the old lady still loves to ride on it. It gets around no problem...

Plasti dip is pretty sweet. Slowly but surely, I'm hiding the fake plastic chrome:

New project; Just picked up a super stock and original 1969 Yamaha 305 from my uncle. He bought it in 1969 after returning from Vietnam and used it as a commuter as he finished college. It was last on the road in 73' and last started sometime in the 80's. It has been garage kept ever since. With a little polish and some work it should be a nice little bike. Anyway here are some pics of it.


And after a quick wash and clean.

Took the MSF class with my wife over the weekend. She kicked butt!



I really enjoyed the TU250 that I got to ride. :)
