This is a 1972 Yamaha DT175. It’s a smoker with 3.2k on the odometer and starts on the first kick. For $600 and came with extra spark plugs and both keys!
The end of season fire sale has begun! Despite the title I’ve actually chosen what I want my next two bikes to be...
Ever since I first started driving a bit over ten years ago I’ve had the privilege of driving roughly fifty or so cars, trucks, and commercial vehicles. The last time my mind was blown this much was when I first saw a smart. What is this mystery car?
No longer arming themselves with just clones from more established brands, Chinese manufacturers and the brands they own are looking for a spot in your garage. But how did we get here? What’s with the clones? And most importantly, should you?
You know it’s bad when Craigslist stops you from buying a bike.
This is going to be an unpopular opinion, so buckle up.
Due to complications in mounting new rubber to Imperator Slowiosa Mk2, I decided to take Tucker on the Gambler 500.
The most vital parts are ready to go but...OOOH WHAT IS THAT!??!?
Prepping the Chuckus for the Gambler has me window shopping (because all “fun funds” are going into the Gambler) what two strokes are left out there in Wisconsin and Illinois keeping with my “no more than $1,200-ish” philosophy.
I was confident that I’d be Gambler ready by Wednesday. But life doesn’t work that way. In fact, the reason I’ll be scrambling to get finished is such a “me” kind of problem...
Kinja on Android doesn’t seem to understand how 24 hour clocks work. 12:15 on a 24 clock means 12:15 pm, not 12:15 am (as in I didn’t choose 00:15). Ugh, but I digress..
I’ve been brainstorming how to get my little Chuckus to the Gambler 500 without having to rent a U-Haul trailer. While I have already solved the problem (putting the scoot in the bed of another Gambler is the cheapest, renting a U-Haul trailer comes a close second) here were my obstacles, including the insane idea I…
The bloody thing blew a fuse.
Mmmm I love the Galaxy S7's camera. This is the second Tesla to appear in the parking lot, the other is a 100D Model S owned by the President of the company.
I went swimming in Lake Michigan yesterday (my swim season doesn’t end until the air or the water becomes unbearably cold) at my favourite place in the world. This place has been extremely important to who I am today. Coincidentally I’ve also watched the area evolve right before my eyes.
I know what you’re thinking, “of course Mercedes got a new phone, she never holds onto phones for more than a few months!” And......crap, you’re right. Anyway, I followed through on selling the Mi Mix 2, here is why:
It’s now at the point where I’ve had dreams of riding a Honda CBX and a Suzuki RE5. I don’t care how few parts exist and how hard they’d be to work on, I need these bikes!!!
This morning the Widowmaker started making an awful pinging noise as I pulled into my work parking lot. I feared the worst in that my accidental burnout killed the engine...
I still need to install the turn indicators, however I’ve finally found the wires for them! Should be an easy job that’ll take like 30min at the most.
This was a phone I really really wanted to keep for a while, however after four months with it I keep wishing I bought something with an OLED screen instead.
