  1. How to become a progressive Democrat

    I figured this out about a year ago and have been living like this. No TV. No news. Do whatever the fuck I want. It's amazing how much better life has been. Not giving a shit about anything helps a lot too. I still don't completely know what happened in South Carolina, and I don't care. What would really make the world a better place is simple: Mind your own damn business.
  2. Starting my Blog soon. How honest to be?

    I'm gonna miss you man. You've influenced my motorcycling life more than you know. Planning any more big trips before you leave? (Not just weekend rides)
  3. Picking up a new bike this month. Any guesses ala Doc

    I read a ride report on ADVrider of a couple from Europe (I think? ) bought a KLR and a DR in Alaska and did the Pan-American highway from Alaska all the way down to south Ushuaia Argentina, the most southern city. The DR ate 3rd gear in Argentina, then I read that it was a common (but not too common) problem. I'll see if I can find the link to the ride report when I get home, it was a great read. Edit: Here it is http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/alaska-to-argentina-n69s54a.704429/
  4. BMW R1200GS Stop Sale and Recall

    When I had my Grom they sent me a recall to replace a stupid emissions sticker on the swingarm. I called the dealer and asked if I could just stop by and get the sticker since I was going to rip it off anyway. "No, we have to have the bike here". I never took it in.
  5. Stupid left coast liberal cucks

    "Bicyclists don't pay road tax" is a bullshit argument. MOST bicyclists also own a vehicle that they already paid road tax on. Yes, I said most, there are exceptions, but not very common. Maybe we should have a "Walker's tax" for people that walk on the sidewalk. Put a tax receipt (License plate) on your ass. Damn I should be a politician.
  6. VFR Questions

    How's the gas mileage and range? I was considering the VFR12 when I bought my GSXS but I seem to remember people had issue with gas tank size and mileage. Didn't Honda increase tank size after a certain year?
  7. August 21st Solar Eclipse

    Anyone riding to view the eclipse Monday August 21st? I noticed the path of totality will pass right over the Deal's Gap area. I'm thinking the top of the Cherohala would be a cool place to view it from. I do have to work until 5 on Sunday and there's no way I can get out of it, so I'd have to slab it down there all evening if I do end up going.
  8. Not sure if satire, or serious......

    There's some jewels in those slideshows.... Top 5 Reasons To Wear A Bandana "Maybe you don't care much for fashion, but rather want that aggressive, tough image. Well, bandanas can accomplish that, too. You might want to remember that wearing a bandana, especially around your face, will make you look like an outlaw on the run. If you are okay with that, then by all means channel your inner Jesse James." Top 6 Reasons Why Riders Don't Wave Back "...Not to mention, many of us Harley owners love polishing on our chrome to bring out that brilliant shine and make our bikes look top notch, so it is very well possible our arms may be a bit too sore to lift off of the handlebars to gesture a wave."

  10. Front brake squeal

    Pretty much since new, the front brakes of my GSXS squeal, but only in the last 10-20 feet of coming to a stop. It is super annoying. I switched to EBC sintered pads, that didn't help. I thought about maybe lightly cross-hatching the rotors? Putting some goo on the backsides of the pads? Any ideas?
  11. Henry AR-& Survival Rifle

    The Air Force is now putting the GUU-5/P in the survival kits for combat, basically a break down version of the AR15. Not much space available in the survival kits to begin with, I have no idea how we're going to squeeze those things in there now.
  12. NC helmet law change

  13. I finally understand this forum

  14. Pay attention to your chain

    Mine broke at the clip. I was going to say No More Clips, but then I remembered it lasted 19,000 miles with no problems.
  15. Ear Plugs, What are you using?

    I use these, but they're molded around earbuds. They work great at blocking unwanted noise, and even with the music going, I can hear what I need to around me (traffic, sirens, etc). http://earfuze.com/ It does get a little old having to plug the cord into the Sena every time I put the helmet on though. I have been thinking about trying just the Sena speakers in my helmet and wearing earplugs, but I feel like the sound quality (of the music) would be awful. Anybody have any input on that?
