I Can Has Luv?
Posted by: Dale Franks on Friday, August 22, 2008

Reader Scott Jacobs, in the comments to my "I'm in ur voting booth..." post informs me that a) he's seen pictures of me, and that b) I'm not allowed to speak Lolcat.

I have no idea why he's so judgmental.

Cuddly...Ur doin' in wrong

By the way, there's a reason I'm wearing the eye-searing jacket. It's my hi-vis motorcycle jacket. For all the good it does.

More motorcycle pics below the fold, if you care.

 

Me and FJR at lake Wohlford

I'm all about the safety. Not that drivers see you anyway...

And here's my little baby, posing in front of the lake.

She's my sweet baby, and I love her.

Me and FJR at lake Wohlford

It's an '07 Yamaha FJR1300AE. 145HP, 99 ft./lbs. of torque. Unquantifiable fun.

I love the electronic clutch. I didn't think I would, but it turns out be a godsend in commuter traffic, and way easier on your hands than having to keep a clutch lever pulled back at stoplights and whatnot. Just flick it into gear with your finger, twist the throttle and you're off.

And she uses less than half the gas that my truck uses. So, I don't drive the truck much, anymore.

Which jacket is that?

I’m now on my 3rd day of commuting to work on my new ’08 Triumph Bonneville. No pictures yet (probably just as well.)

I’ve got a silver mesh jacket that I’ve been wearing, although this morning it was almost to cold (58-60 degrees.) Need to find a good pair of over pants. Legs were a bit stiff from being cold when I got off the bike.

I’ve got a First Gear Kilimanjaro jacket in yellow that I haven’t worn yet, but may if it’s cool tomorrow morning.
