    Kodi fucking blows 🤷🏻‍♂️ I'd rather pay to watch shows than deal with that shit program.

    Same! Ended up with a $125 brick. Bought a Roku and never looked back. And has an attachment to make the remote universal which is even better. But it doesn't play DVDs, so he'd still need to buy a DVD player.

    Lol I have a 51" plasma in my bedroom that's older than dirt and runs great... No burn in, good picture... Puts off a ton of heat 😂

    Best "No Ads" Streaming Device?

    🤷🏻‍♂️ Better to prepare for the future. Every TV sold pretty much is 4k now. Or 8k. Even if he has an old plasma, if it goes out, his next TV will most likely have it. Also, quality aside, it allows you to play the UHD discs... I have a PS4 Pro which is a 4k system but it doesn't play 4K UHD movies on disc, it only streams 4k. Limits your purchasing options slightly. I have a $300/400 system that can't fucking read movie discs from best buy... That's not ideal. Hence a dedicated UHD player.

    Just buy any run of the mill smart Blu Ray player... And get one with 4k so you can watch UHD movies... This one's on sale https://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-streaming-4k-ultra-hd-audio-wi-fi-built-in-blu-ray-player-black/5855304.p?skuId=5855304

    Mobile jump pack recommendations

    Hey everyone.... Can someone suggest a good mobile jump pack that is compact enough to hopefully store on the bike somewhere? I'd like to have one for emergencies where my battery dies. AZ isn't a very push friendly state, at least not around where I live... Super flat and my bike has a tall seat. Also.... What's the deal with jump starting a bike? I feel like an idiot asking this because it should be so simple, but every time I've ever tried to jump a bike I get smoke come off the battery terminals and it pops the ignition fuse... I've tried jumping off of as car that was not running and also from a car sized battery jump pack.... It's like the big clips were too big for the bikes battery post or something... Last time it broke down I pushed it to the nearby harley dealer and he jumped it with no problem with a little jump machine.... Am I just doing something wrong? I can literally tear a car down and put it all back together but the electrical system on this bike makes me feel like a fucking idiot because I can never figure it out. I paid more dollars in registration than miles I've ridden it in the past year. Time to change that. Took if for a spin the other day and remembered why that POS still gets to live in my garage lol

    Mobile jump pack recommendations

    The one from the link has already come in handy for me and it's awesome. I jumped my 1.5L ford fusion with it and the car was so dead it didn't even register as being hooked up to the meter (it has a manual bypass mode where it sends electricity even if it doesn't detect the battery, for the cases.) And the little tiny clamps were great! I had the car jumped a second time by a tow truck who had a standard car sized jump box (the big ones) and the clamps were so big he had trouble getting a good ground on my car. The bolt on the fender wasn't quite doing it and it took him forever to smash the clamp back in where the negative terminal was. The little jump pack worked so well I didn't even anticipate any problems, and I connected it to that same fender bolt he was trying to use. Also managed to fit it under the seat of my bike, which is a miracle if you could see the pathetic "storage" area I have. This jump box, a kickstand pad, 2 allen wrenches, and my registration/insurance and the seat is CRAMMED down. If anyone is looking for one of these, I highly recommend this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B015TKPT1A/?creativeASIN=B015TKPT1A&linkCode=w61&imprToken=LrCRJISamzRFHqOyKLQObQ&slotNum=0&tag=100568-20&th=1&psc=1

    Need a title...

    Usually when you're trying to clean a stolen bike you go on ebay and order a clean frame w/ title and swap the parts over....without asking publicly for help... 🤷🏻‍♂️ You're welcome.

    Dream Bikes

    I called off my prior engagement and used the wedding money I had saved for a used VFR... Wasn't exactly what I wanted but man did it feel good. I parked it at my mom's house for awhile since I lived in apartments. Didn't want the crazy ex to go fuckin around with new bae 🤣🤣

    Why not just leave it open? That's not very smart.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Scored piston wall... Needed a new engine. What would cause that? I keep up on the oil, Mobil 1. I'm kinda bad about air filters? Could that cause it?

    Hydraulic clutch question

    Finally got around to doing this.. Used dot 4... Set lever back to 3 and it's all good 👍🏻

    Hydraulic clutch question

    So for 11k miles I've been riding with my adjustable clutch lever on setting #3/6....today though, the bike grinded slightly going into first gear from neutral leaving a light and then the next light it wouldn't go into gear at all... I kicked it hard 3-4 times and it went. Tried again at next light and same thing. Pulled over and clicked my lever to setting #4/6 (longer pull) and it works flawlessly again. I don't like the extra length though, the clutch doesn't disengage where I'm used to.... I'm just curious what could cause the lever to need adjusted after several years of no issues. Has this happened to anyone? Maybe the lever is wearing out?

    winter bike ritual

    Educate me.... What is Lipo4? I use cheap batteries from O'reilly because it's all that's available local and I'm usually changing it in a parking lot lol Id love to find a battery that doesn't suck. Even Yuasa don't last. Gotta be the heat out here.

    winter bike ritual

    Agreed. I rode my vfr through an Ohio winter as my only vehicle and the snow and salt wasn't kind to it. Constant battle to keep it clean and free of rust. Also.... Even with a tender, my battery won't survive winter storage. If it sits for more than a couple months it needs a new battery. Maybe it's my bikes weak electrical system, but I think removing and taking inside is probably good advice. Doesn't hurt at least.
