Back in the Saddle AGAIN!

Back in May I was hit by a cager at 35 mph which sent me and my scoot sliding down the road. I sustained road rash on both knees and my scoot had cosmetic damage. My insurance company Totalled the bike and purchased it back as a Salvage vehicle.
Thanks to Craigslist I picked up an '86 Vn750 and rebuilt my scoot. In the process I performed the following mods:

- Shendegen R/R
- Ear Shave with re-jet
- Coastered
- Pick up coils at .020"
- Spline Lube
- Bobbed rear fender
- Custom rear turn signals

It sure in the hell feels GREAAAAAAAAAAAAT to be in the wind again.

Pics to follow tomorrow.

Congrats Deuce.
I think you need to add a GE Mini-gun to take out the next cager who lines you up in his sights!
4-6,000 rounds per minute should sweep the road in front!

Good to hear you and the Vulcan are back on the road!
It's sad that so many of us have similar stories of disaster or near disaster. Then again, most states require school buses to have all sorts of blinking lights to make sure they are seen...how do we stand a chance?

We could wrap xmas lights around our jackets, neon lights on the bike, and maybe have our clothing be fuchsia or hot pink!!

That should get people's attention lol
