I spend way to much money on my bikes. Wheels,paint,powdercoat,pipes,guards,jet kits,dampner,Corbin,some bling here, some blang there - it never ends for me. When i sit down and add it all up (very bad idea) i think to myself - damn, i could have had alot newer bike for the coin i've spent, it wouldn't have been personalized the way i like it, but it would have been newer nonetheless. If i bought a new bike......whoa, what money pit that would be! You don't have as many aftrmarket options owning an f3 vs. a newer bike, i guess thats my saving grace. Example - I'm just gonna powder the wheels, next thing i know i'm rippin' the swingarm off (there goes the bearings)..........now i'm eyeballin' the fork stubs (they gotta match!)and thinkin to myself " it could use a fork service, the bike is nine years old" (my justification for the powder...........did i just trick myself?...........damn it!!). I think i need a straight jacket or maybe someone could just hide my bank card for me! Anyone else guilty?? Be honest!! I know i can't be the only one!!
