I hope you don't give up on the Ranger though...hang on to it and someday you'll find the time to finish it.

Why did "d u m b a s s e s" get censored in my last post? Weird!
My very first ride out, someone was passing in the city over a double yellow line coming right at me, my very first ride! I'm definitely paying attention to everything.

Yeah I think Honda was a great choice, took a bit of work to get it running real nice but now it starts at the push of a button, don't even have to choke it. Fast AF! I have enough pictures of the work I've done on it to start a thread just like this, paid $500 for the bike, spent over $1,500 last month fixing it up.

The ranger will hopefully get finished this year as well, with my raise and my side work, it'll most likely come down to just needing some time

Also bought a center stand. My brother's bike is the green 1991 Kawasaki Zephyr 750. A little prettier than mine at the moment, but he can't keep up with my 600.

$1500 for everything you did is pretty damned good! Tires, brakes plugs, plus some repairs? Not bad at all!

If you want a little more, give this guy a call http://www.guhlmotors.com/ He reflashed the ECU on my Honda, something like a 22% jump in torque and HP. Cost 375, but any and all future reflashes are free. Took a total of a week with shipping. Might have to talk to him about your specific unit due to it's being a '94. They list CBR's, just newer. Really nice guy, does great work. Only real way to get in contact is call.

Yeah, I got some good stuff too. Need to do some headlight and wiring clean up, if I go with plastics that'll be another five or six hundred dollars. Bike won't be worth much more than what I've spent on it but I'm keeping it anyways so I chose to put some good stuff on.

You've got me interested, but I'm going to finish the Ranger before I do too much more on the bike. Thanks for that link and info though I'm very interested
