Picked up the 636 yesterday!

Postby BMiller » Sat Aug 15, 2009 8:45 am

Rob and myself drove just over 1,200 miles yesterday in our 21 hour road trip. We headed out of East TN all the way up to IN right by Chicago, IL and back. Even met up with Nate and his buddy Matt for a minute before returning. ONE LONG ASS DRIVE!!! But here are a few camera phone pics:

When you said "Picked up" you weren't kidding!

All Original, except for a custom saddlebag set up. A machine shop buddy of mine seamlessly fitted two GS bags on the rear end for last summers ride.

Waiting on the new forks, but pulled some parts off and fired it up to let the battery charge:

It appears it hit a curb then went down off the pavement. The forks/rim are bent and then there is the minor cosmetic. It's a $500 fix total. :cheers: Funny they total these things out so easily :rofl:

Thank God for squid's or I'd be in debt over this bike......... :rofl:

The little devil says keep the blue..........
Yes, that is a Single Sided Swingarm FZR600 that I built.

Something is lurking, waiting, wanting to be built......It calls to me from the darkness....

I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel....Then I realize that it is the train coming to run my ass over....
