It's been a while since I had written anything. I do apologize.  

Psylocke. 09 Ninja 250.

As of recent events, I have been splitting my time between two cities and sometimes three--Philly, Baltimore and sometimes DC.  

Further south, I have associated myself with a moto shop and some brilliant tinkerers. I've spent a lot of my free time in Baltimore to share creative ideas and inspirations as well as to learn new skills.  

And there hasn't been a dull moment. From retail merchandising, inventory, social media, to a helping hand with cleaning, taking wheels off, sanding, wiring... It's not glamorous. Not complaining, it has been busy. Although I do goof off, as it has started to feel like my home away from home. 

New colors

I rode my bike down so I could repaint her. If you're not familiar, I introduce to you, Psylocke: 

I rode her down to Baltimore from Philly a couple of months ago. It has been killer to be without a moto for months. But I've finally gotten around to buying paint.  

FYI, if you're interested in getting a motorcycle please know no matter how new or old it is, you will be spending money on it. Continuously. 

A while back, I drew a draft sketch of Psylocke and what new colors I will want to paint her. The new colors will be majority metallic dark grey, satin black, and stripes of a pale bright yellow. Still x-men ish colors if you ask me. :) 

Had to fix some broken pieces with the help from friends both at the shop and home. ABS surgery!

I have some more sanding to do after priming some spots. After that, we will start priming all of the parts. Starting with the metallic dark grey.  

Just one of many bike projects. I have acquired an 80s CX500 in pieces and an adorable moped.  

Rawr. Much love.

I will post progress pictures soon of Psylocke as painting will start this weekend. Also, I will have to write about the moped. Have been tinkering with it, fixing it however and eventually prepping it to be rebuilt and customized. :D
