False Neutral #7: "What's in YOUR Workshop?"

This week we discuss our project bikes, which include Bultakenstein, Garrett’s radical RZ350-based custom, and a few other bikes we’re just trying to keep on the road in more-or-less stock condition. After discussing Dakota Mamola along with his dad, arguing over the definition of “UJM”, and praising the CBR600F2 as a cheap track bike, we end up commiserating over the difficulty of getting anything shop-related accomplished. Whether it’s fabricating one-off custom bikes in a race shop or just going out to the garage to put an old, neglected bike back on the road, the wrenching skills, money and time available never seem to be quite adequate. But we still love doing it.
Well, at least one of us does.
Also, now that we’re finding our footing a bit, won’t you please rate and review us on iTunes? It’s lonely over there when our friends don’t visit.

    I like the look of the mutant. The rest are cool too, but that’s definitely my favorite.
