I'm living at home since I'm going to a local school, which means parents rules still. Which is alright because they pay for most things. But my mom doesn't want me getting a bike unless I pay for it entirely. And being a 18 single male, insurance is through the roof on basically all motorcycles and especially crotch rockets. I've been considering it though for awhile. But my mom is also an insurance salesman. So she basically would be forced to go through all the correct things. We wouldn't be able to "work" around high insurance prices.

My friend has and 87 CJ7 with a 305 in it. We just bought a 327 to swap it with. We were thinking about buying an old light weight beater truck to put the 305 in. It's only got 9k on it (crazy right? ) so that's what I might do instead. It's not a huge motor. But they only payed 200 for the 327. Which basically means we're getting the 305 for cheap. Which is a big factor too.

305 has less than 200 hp. Unless you put it in an S10 its gonna be a turd. If it was a 350, you could rebuild it while it was on the engine stand with a cheap higher compression rebuild kit and it would be a worthy swap into a GM truck.

haha i know. its small. but its basically for free. But we also just picked up a 400 something big block. So if that goes into the jeep, well put the 327 in instead.

Check out the insurance rates for a bike rated as a "cruiser" way better than a crotch rocket, and some of them move out seriously fast. Find yourself a honda valkyrie. Even at 18, the insurance isn't nearly what a cbr or a gsxr will nail you.

SURE enough light turns green and i can hear this guy laying rubber.
SO i give it a little gas, got rolling then stomped on the gas and just pulled away like you wouldnt believe. i rolled down and waved goodbye as i pulled away

oh forgot to mention his sunfire was turbocharged as well. hahahah GET SMOKED!!!!
Love it, had a turbo diesel VW with a punk kid try the same thing on me. He obviously had turned the boost up and thought he had something. I let him have a full car length before I blew by him at 1/2 throttle.
