Going to be a short post. Tomorrow morning my dad and I are heading out on a 8 day motorcycle trip through New Mexico, Colorado and Utah. I didn't want to leave without getting one last segment in. I've been meaning to type this one up but procrastination is that ugly bug I can't flick off my shoulder sometimes. Anyway, a couple of new items now adorn Bonnie.
My lovely wife asked what I wanted for Christmas six months ago. I made the comment that if she wanted to get me something completely frivolous I did have my eye on this new stator cover made by the Speed Merchant guys. Christmas morning came and I discovered my wish had been granted under the Christmas tree. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures of it in the box. So you'll have to suffer through some before and after pictures.
I was going to install it myself. But in the end I had to take it in for some other work and I just decided to have the guys from the garage install it. I know, I wussed out.
The old cover had a few scratches on it..from a mild lay down in some gravel. The new cover extends the ribbed fin look off of the cylinder heads. Overall I'm very happy with it. And I highly recommend the Speed Merchant guys if you're looking for any cool gear.
Item number two is a odd one. I've been playing a Blizzard computer game called StarCraft. One of the characters in the game has a suit of armor with a cool looking pin up girl. You can see it here on his left shoulder.
Rolling Art Custom Paint. I emailed them a request for a quote and a cool dude named Bobby got back to me with a good price. So I sent it in. After a few weeks I found this sitting on my doorstep.
