Wikipedia - Adrenaline Junkie - An adrenaline junkie is somebody who feels as if they are addicted to adrenaline. Adrenaline junkies may enjoy competing in extreme sports like skydiving, surfing, motorcycle racing, or anything else that gets their heart rate up. This sort of addiction is brought on by enjoying the (adrenaline) "rush" gained from these activities.

For a guy like myself that has been riding in weather in the teens, this is summer; definitely go for it.

I have a 50 degree limit unless it's been over a month since my last saddle time. It is tempting though and I'd probably go if I had new rubber.

While you were all contemplating riding I just got back. It was fun and well worth the seat time. It's not cold at all. I had a blast and when I came back I took the time to clean the chain and lube it and do some other stuff that I was putting off since it has been on the cold side latley and the garage is not heated.

I have already been out twice today to "test ride" my new GSXR1000. FUNNNN!!!

This thing has the kick of my 12R with a lot less weight. Of course... it is naked at the moment, no signals, no lights, no body work. Had to stay close to home.... but it was FUN!!!

Great Quote - One would think that the Secret Service was smart enough to get serviced secretly.

Just to let you guys know, we got some killer deals on Dunlop Qualifiers in most sizes! $55 mounting and balancing on the bike, less if you bring the wheels in.

We got 12 pallets of tires the other day, so...
