    I'm thinking about getting myself a Vespa. I would love a GTS 300 but my license does not allow motorcycles over 250CC.

    A GTS 250 maybe?

    The only sportbike thats in my budget is a used Kawasaki Ninja or Yamaha TZM. Good motorbike dealers here are hard to come by. But I'm not actually interested in any sportbike or supermotos anyway.

    But I think I'll just wait, my license wont come until some time next year anyway.

    Go for a Ninja. I keep on hearing that they are fantastic, no matter the age and the displacement. Especially the 250s, they are great starter bikes, as well as just being plain fantastic.

    I'm working now to get this baby, 1000 miles across the sea to my place. Hope it wont cost too much.
    And if I have extra money when I get it, should I hire an artist to do some cool art on it?



    Should I paint it dark cream do this on those back engine covers. For a really artsy look.


    Or just do 3 stripes for a sporty look.

    Race stripes are not uncommon on vespas but I'm not making stripes but instead 3 different straights like the Italian flag.

    Some fucking prick stole my bike sometime between midnight and 10AM this morning. I'm a fucking idiot for leaving it parked out on the street and not even chaining it up with the big fuck-off chain and padlock I keep on the bike for that pure reason.

    I put so much fucking time, effort and money into that bike. I loved riding it so much. Sure, it wasn't the fastest, nor the smoothest, nor did the brakes particularly inspire confidence when stopping in a hurry, but it would take me where ever I wanted to go, on road or off.

    Try and get it back? I don't know about you but I'd search the far ends of the earth if my vehicle was ever stolen right from my street.

    It was from out the front of a friends place that I was staying at.
    I've reported it to police, posted shit loads of photos on facebook which friends have then shared to their friends, posted on local bike forums, a local crime/theft facebook page, gumtree, etc. I've gone around the area on my other bike having a look down streets, in bushland and ditches.

    One thing that really pisses me off is that in the tool box I had a small ratchet spanner that was my grandfathers. My mum has tools and whole tool boxes of tools that belonged to her dad, grandfathers and great grandfathers. I can replace the bike and set it up how I want it again, but I can't replace that little ratchet.

    I know it's just a small ratchet and we've got other heirlooms, but I still feel really pissed off about it :(

    I hope things go well for you. Talking about stolen bikes, vespas are somehow theft's no.1 target here. Maybe I should consider getting a GPS tracker.

    Well, found out why my GS500 blew oil everywhere. There's gas in the oil, which probably means I'm gonna have to fix a float in the carbs. Considering I've never touched a carb before and don't know anyone who has experience with them, this is gonna be fun.

    I'm not sure how carbs on bikes compare to carbs on cars, but i redid the carb in my Chevy K10 and it wasn't really hard, it just had tons of really small parts, floats, screws, springs and other stuff. Just take your time, find a nice instruction guide if you can, and it shouldn't be too big of a deal. Keep track of all your shit, too. Previous owner left out one little spring and it crippled my whole engine, which is why i rebuilt it in the first place. (i fixed it, btw)

    I've gotten myself into a mess contacting 5 different companies to help me get that vespa across.

    And I haven't settled the vespa yet, I think I'll just ship it first and settle the rest later on.

    Thats a beautiful bike but don't do artwork on those vintages, I would paint it the original colour.
    If you wanna get something airbrushed get a px theres tonnes of them about

    oh and the reason vespas are no.1 for theifs is because you can break the steering lock real easy and start them with a hairclip!
    I remember starting my dads LML using a bobby pin


    oh and just out of curiosity..... I heard masturbation and blowjobs were illegal in Malaysia?

    I've thought about that too, I guess I'll just get that painted on my helmet.

    I have no Idea about that, but I'm sure its legal here.
    But in Indonesia you get circumcised if you masturbate.

    Speaking of gear, my new jacket arrived 2 days ago!


    Was 35% off, got it for cheap.

    And unrelated to anything, this video is mindblowing

    My dad was at the 2011 TT and is heading back again next year. Caught the bug. I'll probably join him at the 2013 TT.

    One guy died in 2011 but they gloss over it, don't announce a thing. The best you get is 'there's been a bad crash' and then you've got to rely on word of mouth. Apparently this guy came off and hit a tree, was practically in two pieces. Still, the TT is arguably one of the purest forms of superbike racing and there's nothing else like it.

    Have another entertaining video for your delectation:
    Skip to a minute in.

    Um, you can get a Duc Streetfighter, Z1000, Street Triple, Speed Triple, and CB1000R in the states and that's just the beginning.
