Well, as promised, here they are. These are all relatively recent photos of me; nothing later than my last year in college. Was it worth the wait? How close/off was your imaginary perception of me? I’m guessing waaaaaaay off cause I never really slipped up revealing anything.
Anyway, I want to end this last post by saying thanks to everyone who followed my blog. Hopefully you were able to learn a thing or two by the end of it. I originally intended to keep this running for a lot longer but somewhere along the line I just got too caught up with real life stuff and lost motivation. It definitely was fun though and I will be satisfied as long as I was able to positively influence at least one person.
Here’s to a good year of anonymous blogging. I’ll still be on this account because I’m starting another personal blog beginning in 2013 (to keep record of all the random crap I buy for one complete year and tally up the cost along the way) so I’ll still see the shiet you guys post but this will be the last post from Relateamoto. Ride safe and ride smart. Seeeeeeyaah laaaaaaater.
Sparring shin guards came in today (been using the gym’s guards up til now which basically have a thousand years of sweat marinated into them). I never want to take them off; they feel so awesome and they make me want to just walk around and kick the shit out of everything. Oh yea, I’ll post a picture of me without a helmet soon as well. The Pacifier.
Q:You keep saying you won't show your handsome face til you decide to end your blog. That makes me feel like it's better for you not to show us. Then we can at least enjoy your company. :)
Response to relateamoto’s post, showing all my gear.
All my gear:
Shoei RF-1100 Helmet
Alpinestars GP Pro Leather Jacket
Alpinestars Bat Leather Pants
Dainese SSC Alpha D-WP Shoes
Held Air N Dry Gloves
Quick video of my gear. Fellow riders of tumblr, HEED MY CALL! Do a video of your gear! So far we got:
Lets try to get a large collection so that new/current riders can see what kind of gear is out there and can have go-to’s for questions and recommendations!
Calling out: SPORTBIKEDM, BOOTIHOLE, XIRAWR, SOME1SIMPLE, LOWISLIFE, SHIZUKACHRISTINE, OPERATIONBEASTMODE, DOCHEEP, SHUTUPANDBEMYSTERIOUS, D-MIRACLE, KIMCHUCOLLECTION, BITCHONBLAST, BENEDICTSIMON, AND ANYONE ELSE WHO RIDES AND SEES THIS!
Q:You should tell us more about yourself :) I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who wants to know more about you. Are you Chinese? Japanese? Filipino? And why wont you show us your face??? I am completely infatuated with your tumblr and it would be even better if there was more stuff about you (& ur family since they seem to be into motorcycles too)!
I don’t remember if I ever mentioned what type of asian I am, but if I did, you’re gonna have to go look in the archives to find it. Don’t worry, it’s not much to look through; in the one year I’ve been on Tumblr I’ve only posted/reblogged 505 things. As for my face… the day I actually quit Tumblr I’ll reveal it as my final post. I think I’ve revealed all that I wanted to reveal about my family and myself, any more than that and it’s kind of personal and those types of things I like to keep to private messages.
One random fact about me: I don’t use chapstick on my lips, it doesn’t last long enough and my lips get chapped again too quickly. I took the advice of TimothyDeLaGhetto and started using vaseline on my lips and that shit works wonders.
Q:Didn't you have an email available for us?
Yea but I decided not to use it anymore and just to use tumblr as a means of communicating with people. Just ask anything here. For those of you that did hit me up and chatted with me on gchat, twas good times :D
Q:I know absolutely nothing about motorcycles and if I planned to register in a riding course and get my license, what's the best first bike? CBR 250R, CBR 250RA, Ninja 250, Ninja 300, Ninja 300ABS? Whats the diff between CBR 250R/ 250RA and Ninja 300/ 300ABS? Im also a girl too if that has any weight on decision factor (about 5"2, kinda girly but developing an obsession with motorcycles).
The difference is they are the same bikes with and without ABS (anti lock braking system). I’ve actually never ridden a bike with assisted braking (makes it so that you can’t lock up your brakes and skid out, it senses how much braking you need and will pump the brakes accordingly to bring you to a more controlled stop. Fucking science, it’s amazing) so I couldn’t tell you how much of a difference it really makes from first hand experience but it’s a safety feature and there are really no cons to having it aside from a very slight increase in weight, but it’s almost negligible since you’re going to be on the street anyway. Oh yea, it will cost more too haha. I’ve read reviews saying it works and have heard first hand from people that have ABS on their bikes and they say it works, so we have a consensus: it’s a proven technology.
I don’t believe in a written in stone “best” first bike. When it comes to riding on the streets, just get the bike that looks the best to you, that you feel most comfortable sitting on, and the one that you can afford. THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS. Anyone that tells you otherwise is full of it and are trying to sound smarter than they actually are. “This bike has slightly more horsepower” or “that one has a better powerband” blah blah blah, don’t worry about that. You’re on a freaking beginner’s entry level sport bike for god’s sake. It won’t matter to you, especially if you’re just using it to commute and for leisurely riding. You will find discussions all over the internet as to why one is better than the other, but at the end of the day whichever bike you choose will be just fine because they are both from reputable manufacturers and have similar specs. Since you’re short make sure you’re comfortable with the weight of the bike between your legs and the stock seat height (though you can always do little things to lower the seating position of needed).
Now, which would I choose for a first bike if money wasn’t an issue? The Ninja 300cc. It just looks fucking badass for a 250/300cc bike haha. It’s not even to impress anyone either (please please PLEASE do not choose a bike because of other people’s preference; buy it for YOU). I want a bike that is aesthetically pleasing to ME so whenever I open up my garage I feel like a little school girl all giddy and excited just at the sight of it.
Hope this helps, and thanks for posting it under anon so other people can see as well. Cheers and good luck with getting your license :D
Q:its kinda cute how every photo that you have on here of yourself is just you wearing you helmet. :3
Never been called cute for being anonymous before, but I’ll take it :D
Q:Do you ever ride in the snow? Is it difficult? Tell me about it, please! :)
Never ridden in in snow or ice because it’s basically impossible with normal street tires. It’s not worth it at all so if it’s below freezing outside and the ground is moist stick to a car.
Read this article if you like anything mechanical at all, whether it be motorcycles, cars, airplanes, trains, or anything that has a shit ton of engineering incorporated into it. The Tumblr pic is small so here is a higher quality and easier to read version. That shit cray.
Just found out about these Arizona fruit juices not too long ago. They’re so god damn delicous. Went to the store to pick some up since they’re only $1 a can and found that they were ON SALE FOR FIFTY CENTS EACH. HALLE-FUCKING-LUJAH! Picked up a dozen cans for today but I’m returning tomorrow to clean their shelves out. Go try this shit if you haven’t had it before.
The Scorpion Exo-R2000. Pretty damn stoked about this helmet coming out. Scorpion’s first push towards a race oriented helmet and both STG and RevZilla has nothing but good things to say about it. Definitely going to be one of the top “bang for your buck” helmets when it’s released. It’s going to be as light as my current Carbon Fiber HJC which got a few dings when I went down on the track. Perfect excuse to get a new helmet imo. Safety first… right?
