Pandora’s Out of the Box: First Real Monster Ride

Over two long years, with help from so many amazing people, I’ve finally got the Monster on the road. As I mentioned in my previous announcement, "Pandora’s Box" rides well but needs tweaking. In the past few days, with some helping hands, I’ve tweaked the carbs a bit and undone some damage from the previous owner(s). While my test riding the other day way nice, it was limited to a 20 mile radius of my place for obvious reasons. Can’t go braaping off into the sunset until you’ve got the gremlins hammered out. 

Today, rather than watching the Super Bowl, my friend Jess and I hit the road toward Campo on Hwy 94 from San Diego. A ride I’d already done twice, it was a good choice for stretching Pandora’s legs… or tires. 

I have to say… the Monster does well in the twisties.

Colleen Boretto and her two stroke Yamaha RD350 named Kermit (for the paint job) at Cerberus Motorcycles yesterday. I think the Icon 1000 Catwalk leopard print gloves are a nice touch.

(Let’s see how long it takes for this one to get taken down too… sorry about the last post removal.)

Naked dude “Baller Boyz” does a burn out on a R6 in the middle of a busy square in Münster, Germany. Woah, woah! NSFW video that some of my readers will undoubtedly enjoy. If you don’t want to look at a naked guy, don’t watch the video. You’ve been warned. 

Word has it the authorities did not find it amusing and are looking for the helmeted moto-streaker for potential charges.

That being said, I flinch watching someone ride a motorcycle naked for obvious reasons, but since this video was removed from youtube I wanted to share. I couldn’t help but laugh.

A lovely example of many beautiful things about the Pacific Northwest- wr250 in it’s natural habitat during the first annual SFRC Back Forty Enduro (more info).
The Sang Froid Riding Club, creators of the controversial (and might I add, awesome) “Alley Sweeper Urban Enduro" (which is an annual fun filled mud flinging event each spring in Portland) pretty consistently have cool events to keep people busy despite the dreary PNW weather that hits each winter. Why did they plan the Back Forty Enduro? “Because riding around the woods with your buddies is better than staying home and waiting for spring.”

My homegirl Lanakila (of the Women’s Moto Exhibit) scored herself a 2-smoker! It’s a 1971 Yamaha 175cc dirt bike with style! Best part? She parked it in her kitchen.
