    Mini prepping. (Covid-19 thread)

    For milk the ultra-pasteurized stuff, usually organic in 1/2 gallon cardboard carton, has a refrigerated shelf life of 60-90 days. A little expensive if you use alot but prices at Costco is reasonable for families like mine that use about 1gal/week. However we are just using reasonable precautions and doing once weekly grocery runs.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saguaro I think that is a pretty average specimen. The grow over 40ft tall according to the link. They do grow very slowly so that one is probably over 100years old.

    It temporary. Grocery stock turns over quite quickly so shelves will start to fill up over the next couple weeks as the pipeline continues to operate. The stores themselves dont keep much stock so a sudden increase in demand will reduce the available supply short term. I would expect that and food born illness would be detected about the same as normal when the afflicted visit the ER.

    whats the Longest distance for battery powered bicycle

    All depends on how much battery and how much leg There are many variables but if you expect the electrics to do most of the work you are not going to get much more than 20miles. Most claimed ranges are for eco mode where the rider provides > 50% of the power.

    Guess the new bike thread

    Ninja 400 is not equivalent to a Grom. Ninja is a real bike, Grom is a toy. That said I still want a Grom or Z125 😁

    It interesting some people are very brand loyal. My parents have only ever driven GM. On the other hand we currently have 3 vehicles, one German, one Japanese and one American, 2 of those are brands we have not owned previously. 🤷‍♂️

    @TimTheAzn doesnt get it....the only way to ADV is with a full set of lockable Aluminum Panniers, loaded with every conceivable camping convenience and a tool kit to rebuild everything on the bike except the part that will actually fail. 😂

    And those that know usually just say "GSA", the rest of the description is redundant 🤣 My coworker who rides a GSA thinks the same thing...until he was asking for help picking it up

    After his mods and luggage Dan's DR650 is not really light anymore. Maybe lighter than a GSA but that is not saying much I'm hoping to do the KAT next summer but will be riding a DRZ400, I do plan on riding the "hard" sections, so there is that.

    Random Track Talk

    Have you watched ice racing before? Some of those racers have more grip than a MotoGP bike. 😳 Ofcourse when your tires look like this....

    Anyone else order one?

    I love early adopters, they pay the premium to pay for the R&D to make the tech mainstream. I'm suggesting I'm not really an early adopter either. The tech is now mature enough to be good options in some cases and viable options in many. And I think both those groups continue to grow in the next few years. Should you get and EV? it depends... Ofcourse the same answer applies to a pickup truck, sports car, etc. I guess you could say I very happy with my decision. Last year when the Model 3 first came out I thought much the same as you, but after some research I realized and EV was a reasonable choice for my use.
