    Glad to hear that Jim 👍

    Ricor Intiminators are worth looking into. I've used them before. Installation is simple.

    I've been putting a lot of effort into simplifying life. Some things and some people had to go. No regrets.

    I remember that ride. That garbage suspension kept pushing you off your line. That would kill my confidence. I think they improved the FZ09 suspension in 2016 or 2017, better but still not great. It would be cool if Yamaha would make an "R" version, like the Street Triple.

    Leaving my company after 13 years.

    I enjoy negotiating. I actually got another $4k AFTER I accepted the offer, because they only partially explained something to me. I told them I would have negotiated harder if I had all the info, it actually wasn't that big a deal. They asked if some more money would make up for it

    Sounds like a win.

    I didn't spit any venom at my manager, or the director above him. They are decent people and not the problem. Our CEO and top execs are the problem. The operate with zero transparency, everyone below them is constantly left in the dark. Locations are closed, entire departments are shut down with not so much as an email letting people know. I've tried to call people that I've just spoken to a few days before, only to find out their department no longer exists. When you fire a bunch of people, stock prices will temporarily go up (due to reduced costs) then go back down. After a recent huge layoff, our CEO just sold over $20 million in stock, per SEC filing. Nice. My company has fucked over enough people there's actually a online forum where ex employees (and some current) share information on what's been happening. I let my manager and director know that I know what's going on. My entire department is likely going to be out on their asses by the end of 2019. I left before I had to take a bite out of that shit sandwich.

    Giving my 2 weeks notice felt even better than I imagined 😄 I am so ready for something new.

    Trump has done some things I agree with, and some that I don't. Imagine if Trump was actually as bad as CNN is trying so hard to convince us that he is.

    What makes you think that? Maybe the toddler-candy aisle-temper tantrums?

    I don't think I met her, but have heard her mentioned. Very sad. Anyone know what happened?
