Things you know now.

What do you know now that you didn't know before? This could be anything from things you learned from being on CLSB to life lessons learned the hard way, to whatever.

If someone is on your case, it is because they care.

If you are doing something physically active, your mind stops you, if your body wants you to stop it will tell you with severe pain. Minor aches and pains are normal.

One of the most important things I learned in life that I still have trouble with is keeping my mouth shut. I tend to blurt things out then regret it later. I have to constantly remind myself to think really really hard before saying something. except on the interwebz where everyone mouths off.

Ain't nothin' but bitches and money.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

How to change my oil, plugs, and tires.

How to ride better

FTW, FTL, fork tubes to compensate. gixxers rule, blue and white gixxers are the fastest.

Always buy used bikes

Cover the rear brake when practicing garbage or legit wheelies

All gear all the time

Never buy a warranty from a motorcycle dealership

Don't forget changing engines.

In regards to the rear brake, you loop one before?

Not yet, came very close after the engine swap, 600 gearing on a 750 engine is nothing nice . It is kind of tough to cover the rear brake when your feet are dragging on the ground behind the bike .

Also, if you hit a curb, parked car, or ice cream truck on your bike, don't ever tell CLSB about it .

About riding: Don't fixate on gravel in a corner or you WILL crash. And always be aware of your surroundings especially at a stop light where someone could rear end you.
