  1. I had a buddy that lived in Chicago that got tired of having a $150 window broken to steal a $20 stereo, so he started leaving it unlocked. They still broke the fucking window, and this was back when you could see the lock popped up just by looking through the window you're about to break.
  2. My kids both have Spotify accounts, I'm told it's similar to Pandora but better. I have no idea what criteria was used to reach that conclusion.
  3. Poor connection=heat. You mentioned corrosion?

    I need a switch

    I've avoided more accidents with my horn than my brakes. In driver's ed they teach you to "cover the brake" in certain situations, I've found that covering the horn is just as useful. When you see someone about to do something stupid, a quick tap of the horn usually gets their attention enough to correct them before shit gets out of hand.
  5. Yeah, stop doing that. Take a hard look in the mirror, decide you hate what you see enough to do something and change. What you're doing is a start, and possibly a good one, but until you take full responsibility for you, nothing will change long term.
  6. Weight Watchers or any other supervised program is not a recipe for long term success. Honest, no bullshit advice- you've lost weight before, so you've been to the place you need to be. You just have to learn how to live there for the rest of your life. Fuck a diet or a program, change the way you live or you'll be back here next year with the same thread. PS- The "on the road" excuse is bullshit. I was away from home for 5 days for RacerXX and I drank like a fish for 3 of them, I lost 2 pounds. Change how you live, wherever you are.
  7. I thought we didn't shit on other member's sales here?
  8. FWIW and to further cloud the issue, my '01 did not have an o2 sensor, I know that for a fact. I don't believe 49 state 2002's did, either. CA bikes are a different story.
  9. Dude, a bone stock XX will get in the 10’s in the right hands. 12’s ain’t exactly bragging material.
  10. Yes, which is why I suggested it. Float sticks closed but maybe a little fuel gets by and fills the bowl while it’s sitting...bike starts, drains the bowl, dies. Just a possibility, I hate carbs and troubleshooting them.
  11. It can stick open or closed, in this case I’d be guessing closed.
  12. New addition- It stands up and stores is less that a 2’ x 3’ space, so it’s not taking up all that space when not in use. Just did 40 minutes on it and this thing is going to kick my ass like an elliptical never could.
  13. That’s not my issue. After 30+ years of swinging a hammer I have some elbow issues. Going heavy on isolation exercises like curls can leave my elbows, especially my left, just about useless for days or even weeks if I push it too hard. Lifting has improved some joint issues I have, but I still have to be careful or I’ll be looking at extended time off.
  14. Nothing fancy here. Cage, bench, pull-up bar. I used to have a set of dumbbells similar to yours, Brett, but they all got sold once I picked up the Ironmaster adjustables. My father in law gave me the chrome plated ones (at the base of the mirror)when he moved to FL, they get used for lighter stuff. I rarely use the curl bench, it irritates my elbow if I use enough weight to accomplish anything. There used to be a TV above that desk, there’s a bicycle hanging there now. Elliptical is upstairs in the spare bedroom with a TV in front of it. Oh, and 500lbs. of rubber coated plates, another Craigslist score. Traded a guy straight up for plain iron plates, he apparently missed the clanking, LOL.
