Meh I dunno, it's definitely not my thing but I'm just poking fun at him. It's a motorbike, literally a thing meant for fun. If he likes it that's all that matters. I don't care to put limits on customizing your ride, if anything i'm a little jealous I don't have that kind of extra cash lying around to throw on my bike all willy nilly. I still think the bike looks like ass right now, I'm hoping to see the final product to see if it sways my opinion of the darth vader/Bender mounted head on the handle bars.


It's not your thing and doesn't have to be. There are a lot of future changes coming. However, the front fairing isn't one of them. So your opinion probably won't change.

Upcoming changes in the order I plan on doing them.
1. 14" KST Pathfinder handle bars.
2. New exhaust system, intake and CPU tuner.
3. 23" front wheel and fender. Still trying to decide if I want to do a fat front tire.
4. Stretched rear fender and bags.
5. Bag lids with molded speaker openings and highway bar mounted speaker pods.
6. (12) to (14) speaker audio system.
7. Somewhere along the way I might do the front air ride suspension as well as the pneumatic center stand.

Oh so that must be why you keep posting dumb shit here for validation. I see.

But hey, whatever, you do you and enjoy your geriatric assistance mods and I'll stick to carving corners on a real bike.

Validation? :olo:

Like I'm seeking or expecting approval from anyone here. I post here for fun, largely because it irritates people like you. But hey, this isn't a competition. You can have your bike and I'll have mine. All riders are different. As long as you're in the wind is what I say.

That is what we are still currently buying. But our place has now sold and we are now without a home.
Lady Carlos is back with her parents and I am sofa surfing with friends and family...not ideal.

I could, but it would add over an hour on to my daily commute for work currently, plus they are moving house themselves in ten days which would add even more time on my work travels. I just cant be doing that; two hours a day is enough as it is.

Bought the new Threadripper 3970x. Missed the first wave of orders but it should be with me beginning of next month. I'm still on my old i7 5820k for work. Quite looking forward to the jump from rendering on 6 cores to rendering on 32.

Crew showing of 1917 on Sunday. One of the films I've worked on that I'm most looking forward to seeing.

Be worth it when you're moved in and got your feet up in the new place. Hang in there!

Keep us posted on the threadripper; I've been looking at the 3950x but not if it'll be worth the upgrade from the 2700x I have now.

1917 looks mega - looking forward to seeing that one :up:

I prefer living in a country where you don't need a car, though.

If you're not doing professional heavy multicore rendering or compiling stuff where time is money then the 3950x is definitely the way to go. Threadripper performance in games actually goes down because of the lower single core clock and the fact games don't know what to do with all the cores.

That’s an awesome hobby. Looks like a lot of fun and you get to see some scenery from places most can’t access.

I just went through Zion for the first time a couple months ago. Absolutely amazing...
