Anyone left around here?

I see the place has changed quite a bit... looking a little dusty- wondering where people have evacuated to!

I work hard and I play hard.

I'm just like everyone else... only different... and if you don't like it- you can suck it.

I'm good- super busy doing adult things. I still have the SV650- she's all refreshed and ready for some riding. Finally got my paper work all lined up so I can actually ride. Insurance was a little bit... aheeeem- behind.

How about you?

I still lurk... I think forums in general have gone downhill over the last couple years.

Busy! 12-14 hr days @ work, building a new house. Have hardly ridden either bike so far this year, rebuilt the forks on the CBR and added a 45l trunk to haul my crap to work.

Very possibly buying an FZ09 sometime this summer and might be trading the Tacoma for a new one this fall. Got to do something with all the money I'm earning.

I'm alive. Don't frequent here at all; though I do check in time to time. Adulting has taken over my life. Get up, go to work, coach lacrosse, get home, eat, go to bed, repeat.

I basically pay to not have to adult anymore.

I was never more than a second-string character around here, but I am still around. Gave my 250 Ninja back to the guy from whom I bought it, still have my HP4, not sure I mentioned it ever but I accidentally won an auction on a 1098. Wish I had more time to ride and better roads to do it on, but that's Illinois.

Maybe its just me, but the charm of Facebook is almost completely gone and I'm more interested in returning to forums. With any luck, more and more people will come to that conclusion.

WOOT WOOT for a new Tacoma!!! I sold my mazda speed and we bought an old ass honda Civic SI_ it's kind of my little beater at this point- but #nofucksgiven- since insurance is piddles and we paid it off in cash practically.

Negatory, my facebook location is quite accurate. Yokosuka, Kanagawa, Japan.

Been having a blast for the most part.
