Just waiting for the numbers

The bike is painted and together, just waiting for the sign shop to finish with my killer numbers for the front and sides.

But for the most part it's ready for BHF on Sunday. Just need to set the sag and I enlist the help of some peoples at the track for that.

Life's Journey Is Not To Arrive At The Grave Safely In A Well Preserved Body, But Rather To Skid In Sideways, Totally Worn Out, Shouting "HOLY SHIT... What A Ride!"

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

Sweet! Had no idea they offered that. Way cheaper than rearsets for now.

Very nice!

For those showing up at BHF on Sunday, check out the numbers, they are bright orange? I tried taking a picture of the numbers but did not work to well in the camara.
