Funny, because here we can't ride anything over 250CC :rollin but Guys do register Bikes like CB400, Hornet 600 as 250CC bikes
Stupid Cops think those Bikes 250CC so they check Licenses and let them go :p
sometimes things get nasty..!

Solved my HID Problem.
bought a new ballast and my bulb was working fine..... but they had new 10,000K Xenon bulb so i asked how much was it? they said only 2000LKR w00t!
it has proper hi-low technique, very legal i was impressed so i bought it too :love
new bulb and new ballast back in my beauty. same 35W Bulb. they said ballast unit should be hidden, don't let water on it then it will bless long life and always protect the Bar code on it lol because old ballast's bar code was scratched
Pics coming soon :)

Yesterday was Pay day.... and today I got some New rubber for the Hornet. Dunlop GPR 200.

Ive been running on bridgestones and the new Dunlop feels so good. Getting used to the new tire coz the previous one was dead bald with thread starting to show up, lucky i never skidded :Pray

anyway the weird feeling is when I take a corner it feels like im tipping off, it tilts on its own.. May be its because my previous tire was flat in the center i dunno.... gotta break it in!
