The weight is not as much of an issue as the seat height.

But, I have been eye balling both bikes.

Why are thermometers designed to fall/shoot out of your mouth?

Idk how big they get but the truck is about 7ft tall so that cactus is 20+ feet! I've seen big cactus before, but this guy might take the cake lol

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.

Interesting. I definitely have not seen many 40 ft cactuses out here lol. While they may get that big, I wouldn't call 20 foot, 100yr old cactuses average... Makes me want to go check out some of the cactus preservations out here and see some of these 40ft monsters lol... I'd say the "average" cactus I see out here is 10ft or less.

I found this monster on Google, holy damn lol

the brass plunger on the inflator has a divot on it.If i put a bb on top of the tire valve it then lets air through the connection.

Speaking of toilet paper, I once bought some at the store forgetting I didn't have my body sized duffle bag and ended up riding home with my belt through the package/roll tubes and over my shoulder.

Which leads me to the excuse if a cop pulls you over while riding instead of sheltering. Trying to find a store not sold out of toilet paper.

Yeah if I am ever asked while I’m out in my motorcycle, I say I’m looking for hand sanitizer. Dollar stores can be in the middle of nowhere...

I have ridden several times and I get waves and nods from Sherriffs. Are you guys really being stopped and questioned?

I doubt anyone will get stopped unless it is for other reasons.

If I do I will show my out of kitchen pass and tell them I am going to look for herbs for sammiches.

Obviously not in Ohio but I don't understand the shelter in place shit... Are yall not supposed to even be outside? It's odd here, they said shelter in place but then they encouraged people to get outside and explore nature as long as we keep 6ft apart.... So I'm not really sure wtf we're supposed to do... My job printed letters for "essential" workers to carry around but the governor is encouraging people to do things... It's fucking odd 

As for being stopped, I read that police pretty much aren't performing traffic stops right now unless you're being a shit head. I've been comfortably doing 20 over almost everywhere I go with no issue (even past cops)... Then again, the cops here are pretty chill about speeding even before this.

We are the same... Stay in but go out for exercise and to support local food buisness.... Stay in but go check on family and neighbors.... takeout is now allowed to deliver top shelf drinks (or pickup)... 

When out stay 6 ft apart or go golfing... Because some how golfing is essential.
