Well now, it's been a while and here we are in September. I've thought about posting, but I don't like using this space as a woe is me area. I’d rather just hide away for a while and deal with things on my own. Suffice to say a lot has been going on and not all of it was good.
This summer has been absolute crap and a lot of my biker buddies have run into problems or have found other things to do, so I haven't gotten a lot of riding done. I still ride to work pretty much all the time, but weekend rides got stymied due to personal problems.
On the plus side, I finally got something that may make winter a bit more tolerable. I picked up a second hand Jeep and did a few modifications to it. Now the snow storms won't be so much of an issue.
Here she is the day I brought her home
Yeah, there is still snow on the ground there. These pictures were taken a bit before summer and it’s when she was completely stock.
So, little by little I added things like a lift.
New Jeepin by Al upper control arms.
And lastly (definitely not finally) a new paint job.
I’ve still got a few other things to do. I need a new spare rim and tire and I need new badges to put on her as well. Those plastic bits need to be painted black too. All in all, I’m quite pleased and she is very fun to drive. Winter may actually be tolerable this time around.
On that note, the bike isn’t away yet and I’ll be riding for as long as I bloody well can!
