  1. New bike ordered yesterday

    But that only guarantee's you a t-shirt. Wtf did I do? Sorry. Congrats on the Katoom Todd.
  2. hey everyone, I'm here; finally.

    Welcome. It's going to be a long winter for you...lol
  3. All inclusive beach vacations

    Yes, book extras when you get there. There may be different groups offering the same excursion for different prices. They're almost all willing to negotiate some. There are direct flights from CMH and CVG to CUN. Only way to go.

    Also Sting Ray.
  5. All inclusive beach vacations

    We went to Beaches in La Romana DR in September. The week between Irma and Jose. This is the first time we've ever gone anywhere other than the winter time. That won't happen again. It's freaking miserably hot and humid. DR was fine, but resort is outdated. A/C didn't work for about 30 hours after a tropical storm. We got 7 nights all inclusive including air for $2600. That included upgrading to the exclusive adult section, and upgraded seats in the air, among some other small upgrades. We spoke to another couple that used travelbybob to a different resort, and they got a very similar trip for just under $2k. English is not their first language here, and it can be hard to communicate if you don't know Spanish. We went to Riviera Maya two winters ago to a brand new Secrets Akumal Bay. It was really, really nice. About $4k all inclusive with air. January Secrets Negril Jamaica was around $4500. We didn't go to Mexico in September because the travel agent wasn't too comfortable with all of the crap that has been going on. Not to say this stuff wasn't happening before, it just seems a little uneasy down there now. Hope this helps.
  6. WD-40...on tires!

    I buy WD by the gallon. And go through a gallon a year, at least. You dirt riders probably know that it's great to coat the underside of your fenders before riding in wet conditions. Also cleans plastic very well. I typically spray the whole bike except tires, brakes, grips, seat and levers. Water displacement.
  7. Kneeling for the anthem and flag.

    Agreed! I'm very surprised that she had it on, as we have fairly similar "views". I think she may have been surfing and caught that. And I also agree with IP.
  8. Weight loss/ lifting/ dieting thread

    Doughnuts = The Devil
  9. Giving up riding: is it even possible?

    I've "quit" a few times throughout my life for one reason or another. But I always come back. I started riding when I was about 8 years old (now 48), and it has always been at the top of my list of things to do for my own enjoyment. Good luck with your decisions!
  10. Kneeling for the anthem and flag.

    What are peoples thoughts on children taking a knee? My wife was just watching "The View", and a lady on there said that her son should never have to feel uncomfortable exercising is his rights. She said you could feel the tension.
  11. New bike

    Sparkling! Welcome!
  12. Kneeling for the anthem and flag.

    I have to have a line between my personal life and my professional life. I will/can not bring politics or personal beliefs into my place of business, without expecting repocution. These snotty brats can? Apparently I'm a whiney bitch because I can't mix politics/personal beliefs with my money making...
  13. Kneeling for the anthem and flag.

    I will admit that I do not. However, I am not making millions of dollars, on national stage, as an entertainer, portraying negative attitude towards our national anthem (with millions of Americans watching and being influenced by the athletes). I have almost no influence on anyone, and nobody is watching me as a role model. Lol...I guess I bit, huh?
  14. AIM Expo 9-22 & 9-23 who's going.

    I was really hoping for a good un-biased review....is that what this is? LOL It won't be long before Ivan has some of those issues you listed corrected. There has been a lot of complaints about the Raider only having a 5 speed. But the Raider's 5th and the Venture's 6th have such a close gear ratio, it makes me think that I would rather not have that the 6th gear. Your review definitely confirms that.
  15. Kneeling for the anthem and flag.

    Great post! I will not be watching NFL this year. If all "professional" sports start choosing to kneel, I will not be supporting them in any way. I sure hope none of the CBJ players plan to do this. I will really miss watching and going to see them!
