Cleaned the ninja up last night.

Yesterday evening after physical therapy I decided to clean the bike up a little. I'm hoping to go to bike night tonight with my parents. I need to give them a call here in a little while and see what is going on. I always have a good time when I go with them. I know it sounds lame but I don't really care.

I expected this thread to be about bathing an oriental man.

Does it strike anyone else funny that the bike is a Ninja, but is BRIGHT F'N WHITE, covered in flames with attention grabbing glowing headlight thingees and is anything but stealthy like a ninja?

Hey, I used to have one of those mid-'80s Ninjas. Steering was a little heavy, but loads of fun!!!

I had an '04 Ninja 900 that would flatten my eyeballs against the back
of their sockets and collapse my lungs regularly, so thats why I just
want to 250 this time. I cant image what a 1400 Ninja might be like
Space Shuttle launch ?
