Show and expo were great. Trip went also nicely although it was long. Drove the van nearly 1000 kilometers in those days. But it was worth it for sure.
  Now I'm waiting to snow to melt motorcycle season to start 8)
So just slap a plate on after the show, get it inspected and ride. Amazing work in just a few weeks
  That is exactly what is happening now. I'll get carbs and everything tuned now, get it inspected and then I'll hit the road!

Some pics from summer 8) It's getting cold here in Finland. Fall is coming and riding isn't very comfortable for two reasons. First it's kind of cold to ride when it's bellow 10*C degrees and second when leafs fall and it's wet so it's so damn slippery.. I'm waiting for next summer now 8)
   So because of that I drove my bike back to my garage (I'm living now 400km from garage because of summer job). Some how I lost my licence plate and its holder. I was driving overtaking lane and suddenly I saw at my mirror that something flung straight to the car back of me  :o Well fortunate there wasn't police officers en route.
 But yeah. I'll do new plate holder and maybe do some wiring (propably motogatget unit) in the winter.
  My friend is building Suzuki dr600 scrambler now in the garage so maybe I'll post some pictures of that project here.

Love it.

I also tried to get that helmet in the U.S. and customs confiscated it due to no DOT "approval" even though it far exceeds DOT standards. $400 down the drain :(

Sounds weird because it has DOT certifications  :o You should do complaint to customs I think.

fuckin' nazi's, what does it matter if you 'just' own one, surely it only applies if you use it on the road without certification ? we have australian design rules which prohibit the use of a helmet on the road without certification ( though you can buy the appropriate sticker on ebay...) but theres nothing to say you can't bring one into the country , having said that i've never heard of anyone getting done for the offence even if they get pulled wearing a simpson ( the most common illegal helmet in oz)
we did used to have a law that said you could not BUY a black helmet over a certain percentage blackness but you could wear one....then Arai brought a batch into the country that had big white dots painted on, got them approved and when the production models turned up the white dots were just stickers which everyone promptly peeled off and had black helmets, the standards people gave up at that point

we recently had a test case where it was proved that as long as the helmet has the cert sticker when you buy it that makes it legal, you do not have to leave the sticker on after purchase, i know people have been done for that little crime against humanity
