Had an exciting day yesterday..while leaving the city my gf was driving behind me in her acura a little too close, I had to slam on my brakes to avoid hitting a biker that came off the sidewalk across the road, guess she wasn't paying attention because i got a little love tap, should be thankful I didn't get the hitch on this weekend

Not even a mark on the Bullet


Acura not so much, broke the grill, the acura emblem and left a few marks on her bumper, but in the end no one was hurt


Still had some fun doing a mini photoshoot after

Can't wait to get the back up higher

Lol women drivers. Back when I was in high school I was pulling out of the school parking lot and got rear ended by some girl, nothing happened to my truck but the front of her car was totally messed up. Her front bumper was trashed and both head lights were cracked as well as the grill being all smashed lol

oh **** yea i defiantly should have done spindles, every bump is way more bouncy, speed bumps get down right violent. Hopefully some nice new longer shocks in the future will help
