This thread is really good to see. basically, it talks about why it’s silly to blow big bucks on vehicles and gear, when the real point of it is to just get out and do stuff. Take a look and tell me what you think in the comments below.
I’ve added a few pictures to my Flickr photostream lately, take a look if you get a chance.
I’ve been thinking about doing something like this for a while now, and I think it’s about time. This Surf has a little different air box, but I think I can adapt mine and make it work.
I will probably get a head from Ebay and the pipe from a local muffler shop. The one thing I’m not sure about is the tube he uses going up to the pipe from the air box. I would think that smooth would be better.
Heres some of the books I have read lately, that i would recommend.

“When ships are no more than ships to me,
And there’s no place left as I’d like to see;
When fun’s all flat and jokes are stale,
There’s no tate left in the cakes and ale,
Stitch me up as soon as you like,
In a corner of a worn out sail;
With oily stones at my heels and head,
Toss me overboard, and I’ll be dead.”
