## CBX750F — Mr Damage @ Adrian Tritschler · Monday, Jan 1, 0001 · 1 minute read · Update at Jan 1, 0001 ·

The name? The previous owner had placed a large sticker across the fairing screen, it says “DAMAGE”, the name came up in conversation one day and it stuck.

Frame Number: RC17 2 01 6330
Engine Number: RC17E 2016460

TeamRC17 is an informal net-based owners group of the RC17s (Honda CBX750F/G/H), with a website at http://www.replicant.apana.org.au/~viking/ and email address of mailto:teamrc17@replicant.apana.org.au.

Here’s a couple of photos of it sitting in front of my garage.

# Fuel consumption

Compared with other CBX750s that were owned by people I knew, mine always seemed to drink fuel and a prodigal rate.

# …The Owner

There’s not much more I can add to who I am.

# …The Site

Vanity site? Technology experiment? Learning tool? Blog? Journal? Diary? Photo album? I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you…

I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.

Its all been here a fairly long time. Like the papers on my desk, or the books on the bedside table, the pile just grew… and it all grew without much plan or structure. I try not to break URLs, so historical oddities abound.

Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried PHP, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on Emacs Org mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is Org mode and hugo.
