Here is the Godzilla Green SIR9 of Señor Maggs. We pulled all of the old bits from his Kona Unit 2-9. While the bike as it sits now is a force to be reckoned with, we still have a few things in store for Godzilla. We will be doing some upgrades this winter and early spring that will put this bike on a whole different level.
The first ride has been taken, and the report is good!
Depending how you choose to look at it, bike season has been put on hold for a bit. We are finally getting winter weather, and it looks as if it will be here to stay, at least for a while.
I got my second ride of the year in on Saturday. Not a big one, but a ride none the less.
Kermit and I charged Loomis Hill, which I have found takes you up 1000ft in just under 3 miles. Out and back was approximately 35 minutes, with a slight detour on the way down. Instead of doing an up and down (which is all I had time for really…) I extended the ride by taking a couple of side roads that were a much less steep (read: fast) descent.
See, it was about 23 degrees, and the sun was going down, and the temperature was plummeting. Climbing up was the easy part!
I froze, but I rode.
That’s twice as much riding than ’06 for me.
