I hate tar snakes!
I hate tar snakes in the dark!
I hate tar snakes in the dark...in the rain!!!
They make my bike wiggle and squiggle.
They are evil.
Just so you know.
 -----------------------------------------------------------

 The Suzi is going to visit her shop boy this week, and she requested a bath. Finally got the summer bugs scrubbed off the front. There really is a shiny little bike under all that grime. I didn't clean the spokes. I hate cleaning spokes. Who invented spokes anyway? They are almost as annoying as tar snakes are evil. When we pick her up I can look at all the other pretty bikes in the shop. Sit on a Hayabusa or two. It could be fun.

  1. I try to memorize where the snakes are in my travels - then one creeps up and tries to bite me.

    Nice bike, Kari! What a switch it would be to a Hayabusa! You wouldn't get pictures of anything, you'd be going by everything so fast. :)

    Yep, that's what my bike needs . . . a special BlueKat wash. When can I ride over ?

  3. Hi Mike,
    Yes they're sneaky little buggers.
    lol - me and a hayabusa. I sat on one once and it scared me just sitting there. It has a cool name though.

    Hi Bobskoot.
    Ok, but just remember I don't do spokes!

  4. There are other bad things: e.g. wet railroad tracks, cattle grids, water filles pot holes (you never know how deep they go...), and Calgarian cagers...
    I hate spokes too, hence my next bike won't have them ;-)

  6. Hi Sonja
    ah yes, all those wonderful surfaces out to trip us up. I have yet to do a cattle guard (shudder!). You just reminded me...I'm looking to change bikes this year. I had to go check and see if the one I'm looking at has spokes (it didn't Yay!) :)

    Hi Eve,
    I'd never heard of tar snakes until I took up motorcycling. I think it's an apt name for them.

    Which Suzuki do you have? I just fell in love with a ninja 650 today, but have also been trying to look at a sv650. It's been elusive around here.

  7. Hi Blue,
    I've got an 04 Katana GXSF 600. We finally found a lower kit and put it on after a few years. You really don't want to be up on your toes, but I think it's fairly easy to lower the bikes if needed. I started on the Ninja 250R. Loved it but rode that little thing too long. It was fast and fun and I could pick it up if I had to. Can't pick up the Katana. Every time I go to the shop I dream of a new bike.

  8. I don't think I've seen a Katana. I looked at a GXS650F earlier this week. I'm not sure if that's similar. It seemed a little taller than the ninja. I've heard the 250's are fun little bikes to ride. I wish I'd started with one.

    I think we're always dreaming of the next bike. :)
