who hasn't felt like this with their computer, cell phone or pretty much any other electronic device................


 I love the sledge hammer guy at about 3 minutes in, who keeps a sledge hammer in the office? or perhaps he went out to his car? In any case, that is some funny shit.....

 The key to your anger is controlling it and not letting it control you- geeze........... words of wisdom right there folks.

and fyi I am not angry, I simply don't tolerate stupid assholes and make no qualms about calling them out.

A Blonde was down on her luck. In order to raise some money, she decided to kidnap a kid and hold him for ransom.
She went to the playground, grabbed a kid, took him behind a tree, and told him,
“Ive kidnapped you." She then wrote a note saying, "Ive kidnapped your kid. Tomorrow morning, put $10,000 in a paper bag and put it under the pecan tree next to the slide on the north side of the playground. Signed, Blonde.”

The Blonde then taped the note to the kid`s shirt and sent him home to show it to his parents.
The next morning the blonde checked, and sure enough, a paper bag was sitting beneath the pecan tree. The blonde opened the bag and found the $10,000 with a note that said, “How could you do this to a fellow Blonde?”

Here we will switch gears.......... the old battery had actually melted the positive post right off it.

I never saw the battery itself, it was originally towed to a HD shop.

but I did see all the melted lead all over the rear brake fluid resevoir and the bottom of the battery box and even down on the back of the engine/trans to pick out of there before installing a new battery

lead melts at what 650ish degrees...
How much electrcial current has to go through that cable to melt the lead off the battery???



we have an electrician in the house, how much amerage to produce enough heat to melt lead?? and could a loan 14a/hr 220cca battery possibly have enough stored energy to have done it before the battery died?

I am thinking he may have tried jump starting the bike from a running car/truck??? (he is not fessing up to anything)

Roadsmart III
Dunlop Q3+
Dunlop Q4
Dunlop GPR300's

and then of course Bridgestones S21 etc

all have rebates that end at the end of this month

 This latest snow has almost all melted again ( I did have to shovel out the back of the truck and the top half the driveway since it had turned to pretty solid ice being in the shade)

So riding season can commence relatively shortly once again........

I did see 5 different motorcycles out today when I was running some errands and hopefully Wed/Thur rain will clean the streets back off again.
street sweepers came by before this last bought of a foot+ of snow and the local roads here are full of sand once again.... argh


 I had these beauties get ridden in just before the snow arrived, and he didn't even think he needed tires. Just wanted a new sissy bar and oil/filter and to look over his "new to him" purchase

smfh when the pictures don't want to attach
9 year old original tires on an HD, but the rear tire (shown) had the sidewall rubbing up inside the fender... damn near worn off the "Harley davidson edition" lettering.but they were beyond the wear bars and all weather checked anyways

 Already had a customer fall up at the intersection yesterday
brand new tires and he gave it too many beans while turning (opinion- wasn't there, but heard it)

broke off the footpeg and brake pedal but only a few scratches on bodywork, I think he was more embarrassed than injured.......His pride took a big hit.

I even warned him about taking it easy on brand new tires on cold roads and cold temps.......despite it being about 53* at the time he departed

I guess I should have gone out and scuffed them for this impatient person who claimed they were a good rider and could do it themself....

Funny I haven't had any issue on dozens of different bikes with brand new tires even in sub freezing temps...........
 Everyone thinks they are an expert rider as soon as they can let out the clutch without stalling............

I know what I am for sure doing with all the next dozen + bikes getting tires...... You can wait 5 more minutes so you don't end up waiting longer

Not many. If you look at the stats, not many views each day. But, since spring has finally arrived it should pick up

So you need new tires;
 You have ridden your bike some 66,000 miles and been through your fair share of tires (you should know what you like and what you don't and what different mileages you got out of them)

You have run Michelin PR2 and PR3 and liked them and claim to have gotten about 10,000 miles out of each set (before I worked on the bike ever, so I cannot verify)
I know you ran the Roadtec 01's and got 7600 miles
I know you ran a set of T30GT's and got 5400 miles
I know you have run the Dunlop RSIII and gotten 9100 miles (the set coming off right now)

other than mileage you haven't noticed any difference between any of them

So choices seem to be;
PR4's @ $358/set zero rebates.................net $358............................................. 35.8 cents per mile (if these even make it to 10k like you say your other pilot roads did)
T31's @ $265/set with $60 rebate.............net $205............................................ 37.9 cents per mile (if same as T30)
RSIII @ $235/set with $60 rebate.............net $175............................................ 19.2 cents per mile if same mileage as setcoming off

 Why pay twice as much to get PR4's that may or may not last any longer than the RSIII's at half the price????????? (best case scenario seems to indicate you may be able to eek out 1000 extra miles for that addiitonal $178 of up front expense, hell you could buy a second set of the RSIII for that!!!!!!)


 Waste you monies however you want, but the smart money....buy the RSIII's! ( get twice the mileage for the same monies ~ essentially~)

Busa showing up....... wants a stretched swingarm installed, new chain and sprockets and new tires...... oh and has never had a tune up etc......... We'll see what he says on budget- but if it is sub $1k I would be surprised

anyways........... Just one of the many things I have to deal with every day when it comes to customers....
 Far too many listen to facebook or some forum of anonymous souls with zero vested interest and even less educated knowledge......... but the dumbs still listen to them and worse still solicit their advice...........
Too many dumbs in the world...

Ducati has gotten special treatment to make thier bikes competitive for decades

To me;  it is the premier class....... They don't even remotely represent production bikes, so why care about pretending that they do?

 But since they do live in fantasy land, I suppose everyone should then play by the same set of rules..........
(no over sized tanks, no aero advantages, no extra displacement, no weight savings for one brand and not others etc......)

Funny how Yamaha also ran that lower cowl thing in this race (with zero rain to deflect or debris......it can only be concluded it was for cooling of the actual tire and an aero advantage otherwise they wouldn't bother to skirt the rules and risk losing all points and a monetary fine when they knew ahead of time the protest was coming... ie they could have taken it off)
and yamaha didn't get protested (yet?)........ maybe because they aren't really competitive even if they cheat............. So nobody gives a shit about losers cheating

Calling it a tire protector is an insult to people with even half a brain........ (and I know you are used to talking to those half brain deads all day, but get real--- lets be factual here)

 That is what happens when they ride around about 1.5 seconds off pace "conserving tires" for all but a couple laps.....

Keeps everyone close



Now about that post race cool down lap crash..................... hmmm
