    Bikeless, For Now...
  1. Question of the day

    $25k wouldn't pay for my next bike...
  2. Has anyone lived in TN?

    Anywhere Tennessee>Anywhere Ohio Born and raised in Oak Ridge, moved to southern Ohio at 16yrs old.
  3. One would think so, but really it's not. You're welcome to take it for a spin sometime, if you've not driven one. I'll trade you: you can drive my car, I just want a ride in yours. For comparison: Chevy SS 4000lbs, 50/50 weight distribution Ford Mustang GT 5.0 3700lbs, 53/47 weight distribution Dodge Charger SRT 392 4400lbs, 54/46 weight distribution BMW M3 3600lbs, 50/50 weight distribution Audi S4 3900lbs, 55/45 weight distribution And some more interesting comparisons: Chevy SS: C/D TEST RESULTS:Zero to 60 mph: 4.5 secZero to 100 mph: 10.8 secZero to 130 mph: 18.3 secZero to 150 mph: 30.6 secRolling start, 5-60 mph: 5.3 secTop gear, 30-50 mph: 9.3 secTop gear, 50-70 mph: 9.3 secStanding ¼-mile: 13.0 sec @ 111 mphTop speed (governor limited, C/D est): 160 mphBraking, 70-0 mph: 156 ftRoadholding, 300-ft-dia skidpad: 0.96 g Ford Mustang GT: Zero to 60 mph: 4.3 secZero to 100 mph: 10.3 secZero to 130 mph: 18.0 secZero to 150 mph: 25.4 secRolling start, 5-60 mph: 4.9 secTop gear, 30-50 mph: 9.3 secTop gear, 50-70 mph: 8.8 secStanding ¼-mile: 12.9 sec @ 112 mphBraking, 70-0 mph: 156 ftRoadholding, 300-ft-dia skidpad: 0.94 g
  4. I purchased all the Holden badging separately. Still has the bow tie airbag though. That mother is expensive! Maybe someday...
  5. Right behind the magnetic ride control, the bi-modal exhaust is one of my favorite features of the car. As my neighbors wife says, "that car shouldn't sound like that."
  6. I read all the hype of this car being the best four door sports sedan since the legendary E39 M5, and I watched all the video reviews of people praising its manners and its ability to be completely ridiculous, yet I was truly not prepared for just how fun this car would be. I've have a few fast cars, but not this fast. I've had a few cars that handled well, but not this well. I've had a few cars that have turned heads, but again I was not prepared for the attention this car receives. People point. People take pictures of it when I'm filling up with gas(which happens often). I've even had two people turn around to follow me so they could look at the car. I do not understand why these aren't selling like hotcakes! How does a car like this sit at on a dealership's lot for seven months and not get purchased? If you are in the market for a mid sized four door car, yet still want an absolute blast of a car to drive, this is as good as it gets in its price range.

  8. My 2015 GT Mustang twin turbo build

    ZRO KIDS Love it!!
  9. Nicky Hayden Bicycle Accident

    This is the way I normally feel as well. But... I'll never forget July 2000, the first and only time I've been to Mid Ohio, and this guy called The Kentucky Kid whom everyone was talking about. I remember he won a truck after a race, then was signing autographs. I didn't know him, or even of him, but my friend did, so we waited in line. A long line! It was almost dark by the time we got up to him, and all I really remember was his smile. Shaking hands, signing whatever you had, smiling, and that accent. He had more than talent, he had charisma. I immediately became a fan, although I didn't get his autograph. I truly feel sorry for his family, friends, and fans. Nicky was a good guy, despite being a superstar.
  10. Who has two middle fingers....

  11. CR, real response?

    "Text now" free app on Andriod or Apple(I think), pick your own area code, it chooses the rest of the number, use it in situations like this, turn it on and off on demand. Almost no one has my "real" phone number. You're welcome.
  12. Ready for the GAP

  13. Weekend trip with my wife. Any destination recommendations ?

    Wife and I just spent two nights at the Inn at Honey Run right outside Millersburg. Honeycomb suite. Fabulous restaurant. Neat little place. Very "relaxing."
  14. I get these every year for work, but always end up just wearing my Redwing boots. Two pairs, NIB. Wolverine 6" Steel Toe Work boots. Black, size 12, medium width. Model# W02420. Retail is around $140, cheapest I could find online(Amazon) is around $115. OR price is $60 per pair, picked up in the Columbus Ohio area. If you want them shipped, you pay actual shipping charges. Text is the easiest way to reach me. Six1Four-4zero6-Eight8six6. Thanks!
