Was worried about the internet rumors that Husabergs are too heavy. Accordingly, I swithed out to titanium bolts and carbon fiber wheels and guards. Like sender her to Jenny Craigson (Swedish version of Jenny Craig - you know - with all those fat swedes in the world).

The funny story about the carbon fiber fork guards is that I got them at a flea market. They don't really fit yet (they are for 21" wheels so they have a lip that pinces the tire on mine). Guy said he bought them 10 years ago for his KTM, went to Hollister and his friends clowned on him for spending so much money on dirtbike stuff. So he yanked them and stuck them in his truck. He was selling stuff at the Treasure Island swap meet (mostly kitchen wares and junk from his mother's house [RIP]) and he figured he'd pull these out of his truck while he was at it. I went to fiddle with the berg and went over to the swap meet to find a 3 hole punch. Found one, and found these too. So, well, yeah . . . I'm a total poseur now!

Thanks Rench! I'm pretty stoked about finishing her up. There's a bunch of other details I want to address before she is finished. Been accumulating bits here and there for over a year and a half. As soon as I'm done with this crazy work crunch, I'm taking a week off just to work on her. Stay tuned!!

In his defense he did say they were "silly".

Things like that are a disease, usually not a fatal one. It usually starts with polishing aluminum, then gets more hardcore with carbon fiber and titanium. Then once poverty sets in it will usually revert to utilitarianism...

Got all loaded up and ready and had to turn around half-way there. Bottom fell out of some work stuff and I had to go fix it all. Just as well, I wasn't in a good head space to be out on the track. Next couple of weeks for sure!

Lets see, I've been embroiled in a case that should have died 5 months ago. Stuck with a bad judge but I that's finally changed. Lost 43 pounds. Likely financially ruined. But I may have killed this thing yesterday. Snapped this photo on the way home from the courthouse:

When you say you killed it, do you mean it's broken?
Or do you mean you have overcome its uncooperative nature and "dealt" with it to the degree that its usable now?
If there were absolutely anything to be afraid of, don't you think I would have worn pants?

Okay, having difficulty following here. But you're a lawyer, so that's normal.
You delivered the death-blow to that case that should have died five months ago but was kept undead by a judge from the dark side, and you will know tomorrow where to send the flowers and/or pipe-bomb for the funeral?
See, earlier, I thought you was referring to that petite and delicate warhead for your 'berg behind ya.
