Yeah, between switching jobs (huge learning curve), doing photos, and picking up a few more hobbies, I've honestly run out of time. The tank currently is infested with all types of algae. All the HC died because of the algae unfortunately. I just have a buncha Erios in there right now.

I ended up getting the Roof Boxer V8 Shadow (as originally intended) but I had to pay a hefty amount over what I had anticipated. Oh well.. it was worth it IMO.

PPS. I can't help but wonder how the condition of the edges of her tires are.. I can't tell from the pictures. Now that I mention it, do your knees hurt?

Because I can only assume that you drag them on the asphalt from time to time, as the owner of a machine such as that one.

On further contemplation, I'm sure your knees are fine because one would have to conclude that a fellow such as yourself would have the sense to have invested in a good pair of pucks.. and if you own pucks, you must have leathers to go with them. Leathers and pucks can only be so much fun on the road (before those wonderful white hatted gentlemen with the pretty blue lights get you).

This in turn would lead me to believe that somewhere around your neighborhood, you have a track.

I, on the other hand live in Hawaii where there are no tracks, and those wildly popular gentlemen in the white hats with their shiny knee high boots and fabulous mustaches take delight in stopping us for no good reason other than to check our tires and knees (and invite us to part with our honest, hard earned cash).

Do you see wear on the outside edges of my tires? That's right. Your eyes do not deceive you. There is indeed only minor wear (which of course is the result of my accidentally bumping into the curb and forgetting to stop riding or fall down, in case HPD asks).

Anyways, this brings me back once again, to, "I hate you".

PPPS. By "fabulous" I mean "Gay" (not that there's anything wrong with that).

PPPPS. Dear HPD, I hope you die, I hate you the MOST (the real kind)

PPPPPS. Dear Mods, if I apologize to HPD, can you please not delete this post? If you still deem it to be inappropriate, then "HPD" stands for "Huge Pretty Dandelions", not "Honolulu Police Dept." (I just hate those big giant pretty flowers, don't you?)

PPPPPPS. HPD, I'm sorry.

PPPPPPPS. No I'm not. I hate you so much.

PPPPPPPPS. Manualfocus, I am SO sorry for obnoxiously hijacking your thread like this. I promise I'll only talk about plants and motorcycles from now on.

PPPPPPPPPS. Wait.. isn't that what my whole post is about anyway?.. so confused. Good night.
Haha.. I don't know where to even begin to reply to this one, ADA! The closest thing I have to a track here is about 2 hours away. I actually have not been there. I usually just ride the streets around town. We have nice roads on the outskirts of town so my friends and I tackle them quite frequently. I don't have a one-piece yet but I'm saving up for it. I'd trade you spots any day! I'm sure Hawaii > Iowa in many many aspects.

Here are the remainder of reasons why I haven't been very active on here:
Honda CBR-600 RR




Suzuki GSX-R600




Let's ride, gentlemen.

You really did jinx me.

Here's a quick look (it's a .mov file) at the fun weather we have, as of six minutes ago. The sound you hear is golf ball-sized hail hitting the skylights.

The fancy weather folks say it's supposed to be a bright, sunny 76 degrees right now.

P.S. Those other sounds you hear? My heart skipping beats because my hibiscus blooms are being pelted with hail while this little guy tries to catch it all:

Sorry, all. I've been focusing my efforts on starting a business and have had no time to update this thing. As of right now, it's supremely neglected. There's all sorts of algae growing in there. I've got some HC going but I don't know how long they'll last at this rate. I'll be out of the country on a business trip for a month, starting February. I'll likely just drain the tank and try to dry start the HC. Hopefully I'll have someone to look over it while I'm gone. I'll update this once I have something worth showing. Sorry for the disappointment!

Woah, look who returned!

We'll expect tons upon tons of updates when you return. And, of course, tons of photos of the various fish shops you'll hopefully visit on your trip.
