  1. Wow! Did they clean up OK? We have all seen vinyl coated pegs to hang guns so is it that particular rubber or rubber in general? Was the silicone and heat shrink tubing guns OK?
  2. Like Charlie Sheen said, winning!!! Good job.
  3. For sale. CT 18K miles $5K Not Mine-Link
  4. I wanted those Erion Racing pipes back in the day.
  5. Isn't that kind of: I mean you don't drain the fuel out of your motorcycle and then go for a ride, right?
  6. If they are making the food, it might come across like you don't care for what they prepared. I know there were times we were just sitting down to eat supper and someone would stop in to visit. They refused to join in and it felt weird eating in front of them.
  7. Same here but if it gets to the place where riding two up or even solo becomes too much, I could see one of these. 25K is a pretty big commitment to find out.
  8. I was thinking of the Goldwing timing belt. It is set by so many lbs per inches of deflection.
  9. Will that work with any application and any belt? I wonder how accurate it is?
  10. Your not suggesting the Black Bird isn't collectable are you? ๐Ÿ˜‰
  11. Skipping breakfast can damage your immune response - study Skipping meals through intermittent or prolonged fasting periods cause certain white blood cells to go dormant. Those skipped meals may do more damage to your bodily functions than previously thought. Researchers have uncovered that diets that involve fasting - prolonged periods without eating or drinking - could be tied to developing cardiovascular diseases and even some cancers. According to a recently published study, skipping breakfast can actually cause more harm than you'd think. This peer-reviewed study was authored by researchers and medical professionals in cardiovascular health at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital, in collaboration with a team from Harvard Medical School. Researchers said that after carrying their study out on mice, they are able to see how skipping meals triggers responses in the brain. Their findings show that skipping meals triggers responses in the immune cells of the brain. Rest of the story here
  12. Weren't you the guy that washed his Jeep once per year and that was only because you got a free car wash? And the other time it needed washed you just drove it into a lake or something? It's good to see you have found your way. ๐Ÿ˜€
  13. That looks way too clean to be a photo of your bike. ๐Ÿ˜€
  14. Which is why living in the north is better for your Bird. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  15. I thought this was somewhat interesting. It may seem counterintuitive, but a new study review suggests that consuming too little salt could be harmful to heart failure patients. Doctors currently recommend a low-sodium diet to lower blood pressure and avoid fluid buildup and swelling, which can be common symptoms for heart failure. The condition develops when the heart muscle becomes too weak or stiff to effectively pump blood to the rest of the body. But the new meta-analysis of nine randomized, controlled trials found that restricting dietary sodium intake below the standard recommended maximum of about 2.3 grams per day did not bring additional benefits, and it also may increase the risk of death. The findings will be presented March 5 at the American College of Cardiology's annual meeting, in New Orleans. "Our findings showed that restricting dietary sodium to less than the usual recommendation was counterproductive in the management of heart failure," said study lead author Dr. Anirudh Palicherla, an internal medicine resident at Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska. "Limiting sodium is still the way to go to help manage heart failure, but the amount of restriction has been up for debate," Palicherla said in a meeting news release. "This study shows that the focus should be on establishing a safe level of sodium consumption, instead of overly restricting sodium." While the average American eats about 3.4 grams of sodium daily, U.S. Dietary Guidelines recommend limiting that to 2.3 grams daily or less. That's a little less than 1 teaspoon of table salt. The nine trials assessed different levels of sodium for a total of nearly 3,500 people with heart failure and included data on rates of death and hospitalization. Most of those trials were conducted between 2008 and 2022. Researchers found that patients following a diet with a sodium intake target below 2.5 grams per day were 80% more likely to die than those following a diet with a target of 2.5 grams per day or more.

  16. The person with the problem has to want to change or nothing will happen. That applies to all things not just eating. I hope your friend gets a second chance.
  17. This part is scary but could happen with anything I guess. Several cases have also been caused by errors in manufacturing, when the supplements had 100โ€“4,000 times higher amounts of vitamin D than stated on the package (19Trusted Source, 20Trusted Source, 23Trusted Source).
  18. I kind of like that exhaust.
  20. Just read this: How much vitamin D is too much? Since relatively little is known about how vitamin D toxicity works, itโ€™s hard to define an exact threshold for safe or toxic vitamin D intake (5Trusted Source). According to the National Academy of Medicine, formerly known as the Institute of Medicine, 4,000 IU is the safe upper level of daily vitamin D intake. However, doses up to 10,000 IU have not been shown to cause toxicity in healthy individuals (11Trusted Source, 16Trusted Source). Vitamin D toxicity is generally caused by excessive doses of vitamin D supplements, not by diet or sun exposure (17Trusted Source, 18Trusted Source). Although vitamin D toxicity is a very rare condition, recent increases in supplement use may lead to an increase in reported cases. A daily intake ranging from 40,000โ€“100,000 IU (1,000โ€“2,500 mcg), for 1 to several months, has been shown to cause toxicity in humans (15Trusted Source, 19Trusted Source, 20Trusted Source, 21Trusted Source, 22Trusted Source). This is 10โ€“25 times the recommended upper limit, in repeated doses. Individuals with vitamin D toxicity usually have blood levels above 150 ng/mL (375 nmol/L). Several cases have also been caused by errors in manufacturing, when the supplements had 100โ€“4,000 times higher amounts of vitamin D than stated on the package (19Trusted Source, 20Trusted Source, 23Trusted Source). The blood levels in these cases of toxicity ranged from 257โ€“620 ng/mL, or 644โ€“1549 nmol/L. Vitamin D toxicity is usually reversible, but severe cases may eventually cause kidney failure and calcification of the arteries (24Trusted Source, 25Trusted Source).
