Red face Doh!

Hi everyone!
I'm only sorta new to this forum, since I'd signed up early on, then servers changed, bla bla. So I re-signed up yesterday using the same handle and avatar.
I was a "Motorush" member a couple of years back and came over here upon its demise. I'm aware lots of you folks are also Motorush refugee's and see some familiar names out there!
So it's fair to assume a good deal of you own 919's or "Hornets", right? Mine's an '02 with lots of mods. Most of these changes were made after discussion on these boards. Thanks all for your input.
ANYWAYS, I thought I'd share this picture. I cannot divulge where I attained this shot, but I can tell you that this is the first time it’s been uploaded on the web. I'll leave it to you to figure out what went on here.
Enjoy!

Welcome!

Some things are just like Motorush, some are not.

Nonetheless, it is just as fun.

Welcome, although I'm rather green myself.

As far as the pic goes, I'm gonna go with HondaJim and say they are getting ready to change out the shocks.

Welcome back Semi, what took ya so long?

My guess is a woman driver who couldn't find the jack (located under the spare) to change a flat tire.

Welcome....

Setup for a limbo competition? Since there is nothing broken in the front of the car and the castle bricks are not leaning, it appears it did not "drive" or coast in from the right....seems it must of been placed there. Bad case of road rage taken out on Grandma while she was in the mall by the local thugs?

Red face Doh! 2

Hey! I recognize a few of you out there. It's good to be back, thanks. ZX9R, I live @ north shore Chicago.

I suppose that some explanation for the pic is in order:

My son works security at a nearby shopping center. Some geezer W/poor eyesight was attempting to exit after doing some shopping. Not seeing that there's a curb and subsequent drop-off, this guy's thinkin' that this is the way out and blasts over the curb, down the slope and stopping abruptly and the end of this wicked drop! I hear tell that it was a hell of a jolt! The driver ended up driving from the scene, but beware a slightly used merc on the market!

Here's another pic along with one of my projects last winter. They're Art carbon cans with two sets of straps.
While I was installing a fender eliminator (Comp werkes), I fabbed steel flat stock along the bottom, bent at the ends to align with the cans/straps. The steel piece is held to the fender eliminator with small lights using 1/4-20 drilled threaded studs. The lights really don't do jack, so I'll probably replace them with screws this winter.
All the steel was painted stealth jet flat black @ work.

Question Chicken?

What you don’t see is the lack of “chicken strips” on my Z71. Also, there’s a water mark all the way to the gunwales on my kayak

Why is that person on the upper left of the photo 'doh3j' have their butt blacked out? Are they dragging a turd around or something?

He only needs to be scared if you are doing a 120 MPH wheelie with him on the back and his visor opens up!
