Being GDLK

So after what has felt like an eternity, LOS Garage, got some updated parts for GDLK. We decided to continue with the black and gold theme and have some parts 24K gold plated. It’s taken a long (understatement) time to get everything done and back to LOS. Within that timeframe we were able to install an EFI system on to the bike.

Since its Friday and we here at LOS Garage like to drop some music and lyrics for Lyrical Friday, we thought this song would set the mood for the post. In the end… we are pretty hyped about the final result. So without further adieu…

Yakuza Air


After a year riding around the met it was finally time to go under the knife. Took us about 4-5 months to figure out which direction we wanted go and the style we’re looking for. It was after we installed the air ride suspension in sonny fit we decided to pull the trigger on going VIP on the scooter. We haven’t really seen any scooter done up in VIP fashion so this will interesting. One of the reason we picked going this route is the body style of the bike, with all the body panels we think its a good candidate.

Front JISO forks have been modified internally to accept pressurized air. Everyone has done the rear, but very few have actually done the fronts. Been testing these out for some time now. I think its finally ready to be shown.

Super Saturday BBQ

One of the best if not the best part of Super Sunday was hanging out and meeting all the cool kids on Total Ruckus. It was great to finally put tagnames with faces so next time i see them ranting on TR i can imagine their face yelling at someone. hahha  Another awesome thing part about the Super Sunday weekend was the Standard Function BBQ. One of the best BBQ in a long time. They even had Filipino style Lechon (pig) which was no joke! That on top of other meat feed about 50+ people. Ming the owner of Standard Functions was nice enough to even grab his TV from his house and have the UFC fight live playing for that one guy that wanted it so bad! Hahaha No matter what crew or where you’re from NorCal, Devner, Chicago, New York, Florida, Hawaii, etc you’re always welcome at Standard and Ming is the type of person that will always welcome you.  Here is a video from Honest Mike aka ScootTV!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All in all after re thinking about the SS weekend, I think I would rate this event the best part of Super Sunday, just because i met some new friends and chilled with some of my old friends.  Good times!
