sporty

one of those week's where everyday life just seem's to get in the way of everything that actually matter's, since booking for the mgp i've become aware that i need to get my finger out and get the sporty sorted, i've had to do a lot of soul searching recently, my heart say's fuck it, i want to run a bike on the road as close to the legal limits as i can get away with, no indicator's, no light's, loud pipe, totally anti-fucking-social and as far away as possible from 'normal' life as i can get away with, thinking with my head, i need a bike with light's, [fuck the indicator's, i can flick a hand signal if i can be arsed to show my intention's of changing lanes, i'm faster than the vast majority of road users anyway so why would they notice?], so, headlamp sorted, i'm going back to fork gaiters, i know there not fashionable but i just can't live with the thousand acres of exposed chrome fork leg, i got a pair off the dreaded e-bay and they just look the bollock's, the bike look's a lot tougher and it look's like i've dropped the front end, [which i have actually, by 5mm, to reduce the trail and try and improve the feel from the front end] i can't believe i ever considered selling this bike, it did me good to have a look at the alternatives, you know what? there's a thousand other bikes i would swap this one for, but, when it all comes down to it? naaah, i'll stick with this one thank's.....
