The only thing keeping us from literally throwing shit at each other is the fact that someone, somehow, convinced us to start wearing pants.

Who designs a jig saw that has a variable speed trigger with a break right at the start of the pull?

Saw a tip to put a spring in a lathe/drill press to grind down the circumference to lighten it's rate.   I just did replacement RC model ones. Should be able to make them progressive too.

The Theory of Relativity supports the idea that our entire universe is merely a divine mastabatory episode that God has yet to wipe off his belly with an old t-shirt.

Can't wait to hear more about the ZX25R.

I hope the bike comes to the US.

If it doesn't, you should take a look and the Ninja 400.  It's a pretty significant jump over the 300.  It's a capable sport bike and does surprisingly well as a sport tourer... ask @Pauly

or @Blitz  and it's super fun to ride.

I was looking at the 650. The 400 is not much of a step up from the 300 but the seat height is right.

The new 250 is a 4 cylinder with a quick shifter and 59hp. I want to see more specs so I can compare them all.

I think the 400 is a better overall package than the 650.  I looked at both of them and the 900.   Still bought the 400.

 I'll let you ride it sometime...

I think @snot would be impressed with the 400. It would certainly fit her better.

I would love to test ride the 400. I know it is lighter than the 300 and has better acceleration. 

I considered the 650 since it is a step up and has great acceleration on the highway (my commute is all highway).

It will be next year before I am ready to buy another bike. So, I have time.

A track friend of mine went from a 696 monster to a track ready 650. She loved it, but found it a bit heavy. She tracked it for the last 3 seasons, but just recently bought a 400 for the track and gave the 650 to her boyfriend. I won't see her till Palmer in August (if everything is back to normal by then), but I can get her opinions on it for you if she manages to make it out earlier than that. As long as the tracks are open, she will.
