^^^I have always loved riding, but we are just starting out with nicer bikes. If I didn't have a wedding to save for, I would have already upgraded to a better bike....lol

about 6 months till i was given a fix it ticket by chp ... so i traded a friend for his stock tails and he managed to go about a year before he finally got pulled over haha

Alon --- brea eh? Thats coo, i applied for a summer job with the city but they elected not to hire me.

Anyways ... small update ... i sold the acura that this truck replaced today, and so to celebrate i decided to buy some oem mazda floormats on ebay cause the truck has some cheap *** floppy kragen ones right now.

I don't think anything could happen. If the other person wants to get technical about it, then you can too. The law in nevada is: it must shine red and be visable from 500ft. heres what it said in calf. (e) Taillamps shall be red in color and shall be plainly visible from all distances within 500 feet to the rear except that taillamps on vehicles manufactured after January 1, 1969, shall be plainly visible from all distances within 1,000 feet to the rear. thats why you got stopped so many times.

You have a nice truck, i always wanted a dark green truck.
