Professional Shit Compressor

Sometimes you have to be an expert at putting 10lbs into a 5lb bag.  The wiring I'm in process on for a rigid Buell XB project we're finishing up.  The big black box on the right side is just the control unit for the electronic speedometer!!  Not my choice of course, but sometimes you've got to give the customer what they want.  Shenanigans.

A New Member to the Club

My friend Don and I took a no-holds-barred trek to Gadsden, Alabama last Saturday to pick his first bike.  After an extensive search he found this cherry 2008 Triumph Thruxton owned by a great old guy named Bob, who took meticulous care of the bike.  Less than 700 miles on it, and already squared away with a nice aftermarket exhaust, jet kits, air injection eliminators, etc.

The owner, Bob as mentioned, was a really interesting old guy with a real passion for motorcycles.  You could tell he was going to really miss the bike, but I think the stack of hundred dollar bills Don gave him eased his pain a bit, hahahaha.  After about a 13 hour round trip, Don and I made it back to his place and he took his first few spins around the neighborhood.  I was lucky enough to take it for a short blast and the exhaust sounds awesome when you get on it.  All around a beautiful bike and a great choice for Don's first ride.
