    Where'd you get the big R6 poster? I've got the same one, and one of the 50th R1, and another of the Raptor 700

    Hey I'll help you out for beer and food. Or you can come use it whenever you want... but you have pk's place for that.

    Yeah, see you monday! Can't wait to get the cobwebs out and actually start doing some decent laps

    I picked it up pretty cheap from a guy on one of the R6 forums. I'm not sure where he got it. It's really nice though. What's the 50th R1 banner look like? Must be sick.

I'm a little pissed about this, but I'm not sure it's worth the effort to get it all off right now since eventually I will need to prep the surface in both rooms for adherance of an epoxy floor coating when I have the time and money to do it. That will probably occur this fall. That is, unless someone has an easy solution for cleaning the floor that I could do quickly soon.

    You'd fit in there too, wise guy





    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention all NESRians are welcome here any time to chill and wrench. Except Jim and Denno.


    Once I've gotten more done on it after my trip I'll arrange a big ride and afterwards we can all go back for food and chilling. It will be like a grand opening party or some shit.

    Re: Building my garage / workshop (56K death)

    dickhead, i asked an honest question and i get the deathslap?
    and why would i be banned from your garage? other than i'm not a legal midget and cant fit in your garage, and would be afraid too close to the R6 and have it burst into flames from the stupid tank design.

    1. You asked an honest question that was answered TWICE in my writeup. You are illiterate.

    2. No gixxahhhhhhs allowed.

    3. You could fit in there.

    Re: Building my garage / workshop (56K death)

    That's a great transformation, If I was on this board in the past, I would have helped. I just helped a buddy redo his whole kitchen over. I love when people watch the fix-it shows and think everything can be done in 2-3 days. I just laugh.

    Keep up the good work. and I hope you don't have to move anytime soon.

    Wow. That must be some sense of accomplishment there. You did a FANTASTIC job with this project. It's actually a little inspiring.

    I'll have to get a picture of it, but yeah it's pretty cool looking
    I got both the R1 and R6 posters when I was in Daytona for the races in 2006, they were giving them away with any purchase of Yamaha merchandise at the Yamaha tent...so I bought a Yamaha hat, cashed out and got my R1 poster, then turned around and bought a Yamaha R6 T-shirt and got the R6 poster Riding back to the condo was interesting though!

    Re: Building my garage / workshop (56K death)

    Bump: Jim go to hell. You love my photos.

    Did a couple little things the other day. Had a lot of other shit going on though. Work has been pretty rough lately.

    The rest of the baseboard was installed, and I caulked the bottom with the aluminum-colored caulking there as well:





    Then I used a clear caulking on the TOP of the baseboard all the way around, so that liquids splashed on the walls wouldn't seep in behind them. In this pic it still looks like white caulking since it hadn't dried:



    And this closeup shows it dried:



    Unpacked all my trackside stuff and some other things and started organizing the storage room:



    The blue painter's tape allows paint to bleed under a bit so there were lots of marks like this:



    So I just grabbed some black pinstriping and outlined it all:





    Ended up cutting all the drawer liners for all my tool chests:






    Now I'll be concentrating on building the bike back up in time for the next track days and installing all the goodies I'm getting. If there is spare time, I'll start the workbench... but for now all garage stuff will be on the back burner.

    It's cool that I'm about to give this place some hardcore usage. Anyone wants to help when I get stuck and break shit, I'll food and beverage you

    Re: Building my garage / workshop (56K death)

    Just a couple little updates...

    I'm not sure if it was really due to weight or just because it was so humid recently, but this set of shelves had a couple shelves that were looking a bit saggy, so I decided to throw an extra support on there:



    Mounted a whiteboard above my toolchests... should be very helpful for making lists of supplies that have run out and whatnot:



    Lastly... I know some of you guys are as anal/OCD as I am... and if so, your detailing products need to come from Zaino. This is hands down the best shit I've ever worked with, and their long detailed instructions on how to care for your finish using their products is very thorough. If you follow their steps, you'll have a mile-deep shine on any vehicle you own:



    It's not cheap, but you need to use so little of the product that it's actually a pretty good buy. The full kit with wax, polish, detail spray, car wash, polish activator with mixing bottles, and a couple of their VERY soft applicator pads is about 80 bucks. Check out Zaino Store


    I think this saturday I might have a bit of spare time and if so I'll head to Ikea to get the workbench top and drawers

    Yeah... unfortunately the studs are such that I couldn't add a support in the center of the shelves...

    So if it sags again I'll add a fourth on the right half.

    I still think a lot of it was due to the the humidity.
