2015 Race Bike

For a while I've been thinking about what bike design I should do, one that won't be too expensive but couldn't decide on anything.  So I decided to just paint the whole bike black, before it was black and white.

Once it was all black it somehow struck me, that putting the Ghana flag on the bike could be a cool idea.  The black star would serve as a good contrast connecting with the all black theme and the colors are vibrant and catch your eye.

I also figured that I can flaunt my heritage a little bit.  Being an American, child of a black African and white American, living in Tokyo Japan racing motorcycles is a pretty niche category so why not show it off a little :-D

I can't say it was good that I crashed an dislocated my collarbone, but it did free up a few weekends to finish this project.  I guess it wasn't as bad a recovery as I envisioned :).
