Ryan "the_newt" Newton Arlington,TX

Currently riding an 05 SV1000S



Previously had a 2007 FZ6 that I got for a song with less than 900 miles on it



And I cut my teeth on a 2001 SV650 my dad and I rebuilt after the previous owner unloaded it on a friend with a scored connecting rod journal.





I'd really like to get one of the new CBR250Rs but we are maxed out on bikes/scooters right now and my girlfriend likes my SV too much for me to sell it for a 250.

I take it you're a new guy? Welcome. Your bikes are embarrassingly clean. Maybe I should hose all that yellow pollen gunk off my Strom.

Not terribly new, been on for a while. Just lurk around quite a bit but never noticed the member's gallery section. I'm more like a new to posting frequently/daily site visits. And these pictures are just from hitting the bikes with a cheap car wash brush, soap/water, and the leaf blower to dry. It doesn't hurt that none of these bikes had more than 10k on the clock when I shot them either.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas
