  1. As the cardiologist says, "If it tastes good, spit it out."
  2. At least that bike is set up to handle the load.
  3. What's amazing is how one can screw up a simple bean burrito and make it unhealthy. I was floored to see how bad tortillas are for nutrition.
  4. No. Regular steel…that I know of. Fairly thick, so it should last for a while…and it will be easier to reproduce now that I know how these were made.
  5. Well, I found a metal fabricator in town and had him make three of these…I painted them when I got home. Under $80 for all three. I’ve installed on the two main culvert inlets. The stove pipe one will take more digging out to install. Installing, I repurposed some of the old stuff and used chicken wire to prevent stuff falling in from behind.

  7. But not a quip for all the people in DC who use the military for free travel for their own needs.
  8. Not that I’ve left a bike for several months without riding…except MAYBE in 2013…but I always use B-12 Chemtool, particularly before winter, so the fuel has it in the tank. Never had an issue.
  9. My vote is on the universe wanting to make me its bitch.
  10. Returned what I bought...found this in Lowes. Does the job with no fuss.
  11. I know, but I've entered a phase in life where I want to divest myself of as much stuff as possible. If I would really use it, I'd buy it, but odds are it would sit on the shelf.
  12. It does look nice. I’ve wanted to replace my Canon, but I really wanted one with the swing out display as it was very useful when shooting from different angles. Sadly, the only ones made with that feature only used 2 batteries (mine uses 4) which means less time between needing to replace with a fresh pair. I eventually got used to just using my phone and never got back into traditional photography.
  13. If I threaten to, how much will you pay me to not?
  14. I fear you may be correct. The heat needed may be nothing short of leaving the thing stretched out on hot pavement during a sunny, summer day.
  15. I bought this but I don't want to fight the coil. My thought is to hang it from something, add weight, then use a heat gun to work out the curls. Will that work?
  16. Sounds like a fad to me. Nuts are generally healthy but have fat and calories…still better than other snack options. I’m thinking of trying no sugar added peanut butter because I think the added sugar is part of why I feel whammied after eating some.
  17. I remember a woodpecker that was trying to bore a hole into a power pole that had a metal plate. Made quite the racket.
  18. Well, it's progress. If it worked until you had it back together, something got jostled.
  19. If this is my bike you’re talking about, the HIDs take time to reach full brightness. You don’t notice it on low beam because it’s always on. The high beam gets no power until you turn it on. The ballast has to charge and the bulb will reach full brightness in a few seconds (15-20). I noticed this on a trip at night when I went to flash my high beams and found them somewhat insipid. I made it a practice to occasionally turn on the high beam because when you cut it off, the ballast slowly discharges…putting you back at square one. The only time I saw flickering was if the lights just came on and a turn signal was operating…but I think it only happened when the bike was on but not running. Until, the ballast is full, the turn signal introduces enough drain to make it cut out. I think the company that made the system is DDM. If they are still around, you can ask if this is normal or a sign of a failed ballast. That said, I went LED in the BMW, and it seems to do well at putting out more light than the OEM bulbs.

    C#

    To me, programming in any code based on English syntax always seemed like talking in algebra.
  21. Looks the same going in as it does coming out.
  22. If not, a competent glass store can make a replacement one…presuming the assembly is still good.
  23. I’m glad you found a buyer. With an “all or nothing” clause, my best tip would be to find a motorcycle specific salvage yard who may want to buy the lot for resale, but you likely wouldn’t get your asking price.
  24. They also worked their asses off...and in winter likely burned a lot of calories just trying to stay warm.
  25. No. The best way to get to diabetes is pizza, ice cream, cookies, brownies, etc.
