Shot off my mouth, now it's time to pay up.

So, I've been off the forum for the past few weeks working a shit-ton of hours and haven't had much time for my kids, let alone this forum unfortunately. The work is starting to get a bit lighter these days so I'm hoping to show my face around here more often.

Well, it seems as though in the time I've been away, Tom Sykes has managed to capture the WSBK title for Kawi and that got me thinking. I remembered something from last year.......oh yeah.....I shot off my mouth ago about how I didn't think they'd be able to win it this year. I figured the BMWs and Aprilias would step it up and the 1-man Kawi show would be relegated to 2nd place again. Admittedly, I wanted them to win it and didn't count on Biaggi retiring at the end of last year. Needless to say, I'm excited for the ZX-10R, Kawasaki, and Tom especially!

Which brings me to this thread. This an official thread to say I lost the bet I made a year ago in this thread:

https://zx-10r.net/forum/showthread.php?t=120241

Purebusiness1 started the thread but didn't want to take me up on my offer. BlueDevil did though and we sealed the deal with a cyber-shake in post #31. So, Kawi won the championship and I'm out $20 to Bloo.

Hey Bloo, send me a PM with your paypal address and I'll send you the $20 you won. Serves me right for opening my damn mouth and betting against a Kawi.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Thanks! Yeah, been putting in about 70-80 hours a week over the last 6 weeks or so. Just that time of the project that I'm currently working on trying to get all the kinks ironed out and tested. Other than being worn out and exhausted, I'm fine. I've been wondering what's been happening on the forum and who's been reposting stuff. :headshake You'll see me more frequently on here now though!

Yeah, I can't believe I bet against them either. I know better!

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

No worries Sky D.....I thought it appropriate to update and elaborate in the original thread post #46. I did forget about the bet but shows what a stand up guy you are to pay your debts. ......and nice to have you active again too

Stand Up guy indeed. to SD for his honesty, good looking motorcycle, and most importantly, his elephant of a memory

Money sent! My bet has been paid to BD.

Maybe we'll do it again for 2014!!! But I first wanna see what happens in the off-season first. Hopefully Sykes won't retire.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Overtime pay? I'm salaried. I wish I was making some extra bank working all the extra time. But you gotta do what you gotta do to get the job done!

Reposting......grrrrr.....gonna have to look into some past posts and get the names of all of the offenders.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
