So. My Customization is Going in a Weird Direction...

Title says it all. I completely changed my mind about what I wanted to do with my bike, and now I'm going to be turning her into a post-apocalyptic-desert-rat-thing. I still have to slap some turn signals on her, but I also have to take the tins off, strip them and repaint, on top of moving the rectifier and lots of maintenance-type stuff. Instead of an actual fairing, I put a gas mask on her. Yes, a gas mask. Also serves as a drink bottle holder.

I think she's looking cool, but I also realize that what I've already done/am going to do is NOT to everyone's taste. I like it, that's what matters.



What say you?

This is my Vulcan. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

"Who gets the chairs?"



It doesn't make any sense but it's one of my favorite quotes. I say it all the time. People look at me funny.

BWAHAHAHAHA!

All I have say to that is \\//,

+10 for the Star Trek ref, and +15 for Ferengis!

Doesn't have to make sense, it's Star Trek! I quote the 'Darmok' ep alll the time and only my inner circle and other ST nerds have any clue what I'm talking about.

This is my Vulcan. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
