ok so after figuring out a few glitches and getting this puppy breathing i couldn't take it anymore!!!! So i took the tag off my gixxer...(you know where this is going) and slapped it on and went for a ride. MAN this bike howls! I love it! i still have a little carb work to do but it runs pretty good for first time tuner I guess, but anyway I go to the gas station where most bikes kind of hang out. it;s called the country store in shady valley, pull in and suddenly all eyes are pointed my direction. Before i even get off 2 people ask me what it is! I suddenly have a mob of people 10-15 literally surronding the little 650 including a guy I saw get his cigs out of what looked to be a $25,000.00 big dog chopper and he seems THE MOST excited out of everyone standing there?What I didn't realize is all this attention got the attention of the county cop sitting down the road he pulls in and gets out and says Man I like that yammy! I got one similar to it! he talks a few minutes and goes back to his car. while i'm trying to cover the tag with my leg by standing behind it he gets back out with his camera takes a pic and tells me to take my 2007 gsxr 1000 back to the house before I get in trouble I figure it's ticket city now, but NO! he says if you go riding on the weekends on the parkway give me a call, gives me his cell number, and "me and a couple of the other sheriffs have 650's to we have fixed up and maybe we can all go riding together one day" "shoot we might be able to help each other out on parts from time to time" "have a good day" and leaves. After I pick my jaw up from the ground, gather my thoughts back up I can't help but think "holy crap! what just happened?" this is the same cop that gave out 20 or so tickets last week for speeding up on the mountain to crotch rockets....apparently he has a hatred for crotch rockets but a LOVE for 650's.....what a day!
