    • Work on the KDX

      10 years ago

      ArgonDestroy

      I've been riding my KDX200 for a few years now, and I decided it was time to fix some of the little things wrong with it. Yesterday I cleaned some crap off the contacts in the battery compartment of the trip meter/timer so it would actually turn on. I was going to mount it in the little box on the bars, but it was missing all of the hardware, including the studs that were part of the timer. So my dad and I found some hardware that would do the job, and I got bored while doing it and started taking pictures.

      IMG_9791.jpg
      First I had to fit these grommets into those holes, which was fairly simple.

      IMG_9795.jpg
      I had to drill holes into the back plate of the timer. The only problem here was making a 6mm hole with a standard bit.

      IMG_9796.jpg
      Didn't take pictures of the holes for some reason, but since they were a little big, I held the bolts in with this.

      IMG_9798.jpg
      And here's the finished product, sitting in the box that will mount to the back of the number plate. The silicone is drying overnight, so tomorrow I'll be able to rig everything up. When I do that I'll be able to hook the headlight back up as well.

      Once that's done, I'll just need a tail light, which means a new rear fender, and maybe some decals to pretty it up. And of course, the one thing that's annoyed me the most, the lack of kickstand. Since it's an '84, they're no longer made. I'm probably going to end up fabricating something.

      Yeah, I'm really bored and haven't had a journal in a while, that's why I'm doing this

    • Random Car Pics

      I needed a new journal, so I decided I'd put up some pictures of my car. 1994 Toyota Camry that my grandparents put about 150k on. I'm already missing the 4WD on my truck in the snow, but I know I wouldn't have made it through the drive between home and university.

      The last time I had to drive home it had just snowed, so the three hours through the adirondack mountains had roads covered with shit:
      IMG_3231-1.jpg

      And just last weekend driving through the mountains again I noticed that none of the pull offs are completely plowed:

      I kind of want to do something crazy with it and turbo it, but I realize that my money would be much better saved somewhere to get a better car later.

      I realized that once again, I've gone a few months without writing a journal. I've never felt like making this into a daily blog, but I figure I need something more current.

      Right now I'm at Clarkson University, in Potsdam, New York. Basically I'm in the middle of nowhere, maybe 40 miles from the Canadian border. So far it's been great. My roommate plays Warhammer Online most of the day, and most kids on my floor haven't seen him more than once or twice in the month we've been here. It doesn't bug me too much; I could have ended up with an obnoxious drunk.

      I got involved with the SAE Mini-Baja team here too. Basically we build an offroad buggy, with the main requirement being that it uses a 10 HP Briggs and Stratton motor. I've driven the cars from the two previous years (obviously we haven't built a new one yet), and they've been loads of fun. Obviously not super fast, but still awesome to drive. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who has it at their college.

      Luckily, since this is an engineering school, there's plenty of people who like cars and bikes as much as I do. Unluckily, it's something around a 3 to 1 male-female ratio.

      I just realized it's been a long damn time since I made a journal here. I haven't been anywhere near as active as I used to be (which wasn't very active to begin with). Anyway, I've got a week left of high school, and in August I'll be attending Clarkson University.

      I'm excited that RvB is back, but nothing will ever top the first 2 1/2 seasons.

      Since last Saturday I've been attempting to get my 360 hooked up to Live. After a ton of issues I thought I was having (cable broken, router too slow) I found that I just needed to replace the ends of my ethernet cable. Problem solved. My gamertag is DeltaVictor12, and all I have for now is CoD4, Halo 3, and MotoGP 2007.

      And RC helicopters, which are surprisingly fun. My mom bought them because "The professors at MIT play with them".

    • Accident List- Winter 07

      11 years ago

      ArgonDestroy

      Well, winter has finally struck my town. We got some snow/ice last weekend, and there were a few spin outs on my corner, nothing very noteworthy other than my neighbor's mailbox getting taken out. To explain my corner: it's a downhill, sharp left hander, with a slight rise before it. My road gets a good amount of traffic and people usually come along at a pretty good clip. When it snows, most are too stupid to realize they need to slow down, and hilarity normally insues.

      Well, tonight I got home after driving through the first real snow (donuts in a few big parking lots, and a few nice drifts on the road). As I was pulling into my driveway, I saw this:
      IMG_1361.jpg
      IMG_1362.jpg
      That is the remainder of my mailbox, a post encased in bricks buried at least a foot in the ground. According to my mom, it got hit by a "small, white car" that left after the accident. I have no clue how fast he was going, but I'm guessing that it must have been too fast for even dry roads. But to give an idea of of the speed:
      IMG_1364.jpg
      The thing in the center of the picture (look straight above the pole, right at the edge of the black) is my mailbox, a good 30 feet away. Standing at the mailbox:
      IMG_1370.jpg
      And I found this lovely chunk of his car:
      IMG_1371.jpg

      The two very scary things about this are:
      1. There isn't a scratch on the bricks from where he hit.
      2. This won't be the last time someone spins out on the corner.
      I'm still trying to figure out how he missed my neighbors' mailboxes, which were about three feet before mine, and just wooden poles.

      I'm definitely going to have more pictures as the year goes on.

      It's been a while since I made a journal. I got my motorcycle license back in September, and I was lucky enough to ride to school a few times. But recently it's been in the high 20s and low 30s in the mornings, so I haven't gotten been able to ride for a few weeks. Hopefully I'll be able to get a better bike (or truck) soon.

      Other than that, I've continued to deal with the bull shit of my school being under construction. I can't wait until I get out of there and go to college (which will hopefully be Cornell).
