Crashed a couple weeks ago, had to retire the Arai.

Replaced it with a Carbon Bell Race Star Flex DLX. Thing is seriously sweet.

Hope it did its job well, and the rest of you was protected with similar high-level gear!
Didn't have riding pants on. Absolutely should have.

Hit a patch of gravel going into a turn, back end locked up, slid out sideways. The road went hard right, and I went straight. Took out a road sign with my shoulder. That stung. Big gash in my knee. Weirdly enough, didn't even put a hole in my pants. Banged up my wrist.

But, the bike was golden. Didn't even scratch the paint. Just had to replace the headlight, bar end mirror, couple carbon pieces I had put on, and broke the shift side rearset. It snapped in half, and broke a by off in the frame.

All in all, probably the best I could have hoped for given the circumstance.

Picked this up used on FB. Always wanted one when I was younger. Now my son's playing HS ball figured I'd just do it.
Great machine. Newer ones are easier to microadjust but this ones fine. And I didn't pay $3k!!!!
Run it anywhere with a 1000w generator I have for the track bike.

We’re using three of that same machine for our team. It does everything you want it to. Great buy.

Inspired by Hurco's find to share what I bought this summer. My wife and I are looking to move to Prince Edward County (few hours northeast of Toronto), and I always pull a dramatic rally right whenever I see a rural antiques barn. Spotted this on a wall and thought it's either coming home peacefully or with a fight - luckily my wife liked it as much as I did

What a cool drill, Jimbo. Do you know the year of manufacture?

By the way, did you know that they speak English in Ontario? You will have to get a boat, lots of great boating there, pretty place too.

Glad J-Rod survived the crash. Nice score Jimbo! My electrical measuring thing went kaput so I had to buy another one.

They speak English there? Thank fuque.

Not sure of the exact date of manufacture. The side of the drill is embossed Blower & Forge, Hamilton, ON and from what I've sleuthed the company was operational there around the beginning of WW1. So around then I guess.

What a beauty. OG post drills man, don't make them like they used to. You should get that thing up on a wall...

Picked up this disgusting ‘77 KZ750B yesterday. Good thing it was free with a title.

Will tear off that jammer and try to get it running, then start tearing it down for a custom job of yet undetermined stying.

Very Jealous. My love of vintage motorcycles started with a kz750 twin that my uncle bought brand new and my dad got years later. This is me circa 1991 with my dad on said bike. As you can see, we still share good times together based around motorcycles. I will find another kz750 (in the maroon color scheme) as dad sold this one when I was 13 or so.
