    2019 Gap Trip.

    I will put the basics together. You asshats have a few days to post up what dates in June that you can NOT go. I will pick a date that works for the most people that I don't hate. I will get us a block from Wednesday through Sunday morning. It will be held at the Two Wheel Inn just south of Robbinsville. http://twowheelinn.com/ We will need someone to design a Fuck Casper T-Shirt also. Fuck off.

    OR Bluetooth communication choice

    I went with something else. Smith and Wesson. Not sure why that wasn't included in the first place.

    When you have locked in vacation time you have to have two plans. If the weather down there goes to shit you have a plan B to go to the Ozarks, or New England or the Black Hills or something. You eat some hotel reservations but you save your vacation.

    You probably shouldn't hang there at night. The bears prefer dark meat.

    As a matter of fact, Domino's can hire a blind partially deaf coder to fix their shit. https://www.cnbc.com/2018/04/24/this-blind-26-year-old-got-a-job-writing-code-at-amazon.html

    Making a website or app usable by blind people is trivial, and the law. Fuck Domino's, and Casper.

    Funny picture thread.

    Steves post above is proof that even a retarded blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then. They are great for scraping shit off something you don't want to scratch. For example the painted engine in my FZ when I had to put a dab of permatex on the oil fill plug for the track. And for scraping off the track sticker from the fairing. Looked great as I drove it off the side of the road and wrecked it I have a pack of them, and a holder for them.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Damn good thing you edited my name and spelled it right. Was afraid I was going to have to ban you.

    Leaving my company after 13 years.

    On my change this spring I screwed up during negotiations. They offered, I countered at +13k. While they pondered that I did some more math and said to myself shit...that 13k isn't enough to cover my old health care bennies and the retirement kickback. They came back at +10k over their original offer so 3k below my counter. I declined, and said my original counter of +13k was also now void and I needed +18k. Took them three days to get over that bombshell but they said yes.

    Lets fix this ear plug BS

    Go here: https://www.legislature.ohio.gov/legislators/find-my-legislators and find your Rep and Senator. Copy and past the below in. Yea, I know I caved on the earphone issue. But if we go for that at the same time we will lose on both. One thing at a time. Hello, I would like to discuss with you a needed change to Ohio law, specifically ORC 4511.84 http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/4511.84 This law prohibits the use of earphones and earplugs while riding a motorcycle. While prohibiting earphones may make sense, the prohibition on earplugs does not. This law is antiquated and does not account for the medical community’s better understanding of hearing loss and it’s causes. In fact the Ohio BMV handbook for new motorcycle riders says: “Long-term exposure to engine and wind noise can cause permanent hearing damage, even if you have a quiet motorcycle and wear a full-face helmet. Whether you choose disposable foam plugs or reusable custom-molded devices, properly worn hearing protection reduces noise, while allowing you to hear important sounds like car horns and sirens.” I have a quiet motorcycle, and I wear a full face helmet. When I don’t wear ear plugs I can clearly tell my hearing has been impacted after a day of riding. They ring and buzz, just like being at a loud concert. Yes, I ignore the law and wear ear plugs as do a great many other riders I know. One of whom just got a $95 dollar ticket for doing so. I can assure you I can hear sirens and horns. Ear plugs are selective in what noise they block. Simply put the State has a law forcing a motorcycle rider to suffer permanent hearing loss. It has no moral right to do so. 4511.84 needs to be amended with an exception for hearing protection for motorcycle riders as many other states have already done. Please let me know what I can do to help make this happen and thank you in advance for your help in this matter.

    We were on the schedule for today, they never brought it up. I don't believe there are any more sessions and we are probably dead.

    I know the story behind this. Currently if you are an over weight truck you have to pull a permit to use a freeway. Not long ago there was a dude trapped in a semi and they needed an overweight wrecker to lift it off him. State Police and the wrecker company said to hell with your law we are gonna do it anyway. They saved his life, there is no debate on that. This addition isn't controversial at all, it won't hold us up. House will vote to accept the change.

    Fuck yeah, we did it again. We are on the agenda for the 27th in the Rules Committee. They are who officially sends it the the floor. There is a session scheduled for the the full Senate on the 29th. We are lucky as hell there are some veto overrides they want to do. Without that there wouldn't be any more sessions after Xmas.

    I have edited the subject so no one will be offended. Unrelated I am dropping out of planning this, I wasn't going to go. Was just trying to help out.

    We are in trouble, we are stalled getting to the Senate floor. There are about a 1000 bills trying to get there and only two sessions left. The only thing that will save us is if we call and make sure they understand this bill is important to get to the floor. You need to make a phone call. Right meow. Call President Obhof’s (614) 466-7505. He is the Senate President and is the final word on what gets to the floor. Tell him this is an issue that needs to be voted on. I have it on good authority these phone calls help, they put check boxes next to the bills that people are talking about. There are only two sessions left, it's now or never.
