    Just Paid for My 'bent!

    Here we are guys,
    I have finally put my foot down and decided that enough is enough. I must have my 'bent! I think that now is the best time, cause I'm getting student loan money in the new week or two, and money is coming in(at a tortise pace but all the same its coming in! I just bought an Actionbent JetStream II understeering. Wooo HOoo. I need to buy some lights and mirrors(will I really need mirrors?). I think the applegreen color is gonna look nice under my flames.
    Wooo hooo Whooo Hoooo!

    Welcome to the club; my first 'bent was a Jetstream I USS. Get a daylight visible rear flashing taillight. I started with a Cateye 10 LED and progressed to an externally powered Niterider taillight. A bright flashing red light triggers the subconscious response from the motorists to SLOW DOWN, CHECK THINGS OUT. Made a big difference in how much respect I receive from overtaking traffic. Get a helmet/eyeglass mirror ASAP, I tried a number of other mirrors on the Jetstream, but they all suffered from excessive road vibration that transfers readily through the Actionbent frame. Be cautious and have fun.
