I think the ear block he's referring to is the outward pressure from descending from a higher altitude (lower pressure). Our ears self equalize on the way up, but descending (increased outside atmospheric pressure) cause the eardrum itself to deform inward. This is where the eustacian tube, and howe...

Squeeze your nose shut, keep your lips tightly closed and blow. The air will travel up the eustacian tube and press the eardrum back out to the normal position. This is the method used by Air Force aviators, and always worked for me. We did alot of altitude variation in training, as you might imagin...

Thanks everybody! Chris still rides everywhere...no car. He finally dropped his cbr in a girl's driveway and broke his left mirror off...chipped a little of that beautiful red paint off the lower edge of the front faring. Not too bad for all the miles he puts on. He's bummed, but doesn't seem in any...

I looked, and applied for work through january and most of February. Then I heard of a chance to get into a wire manufacturing plant here, through a temp agency. I turn...

My intent was to show a true documented flaw in the science of this particular case of "extinction." Simple existence of fossils doesn't prove extreme lengths of time or evolution, or extinction, or anything else. The fossil evidence of the coelacanthe would indicate millions and millions of years o...

Here's a fish that didn't evolve...supposed extinct "with the dinosaurs" until sombody caught one in the 1930's. Bone for bone match with the fossils previously found. You decide for yourself how this confirms/denies evolutionary theory, or the science behind it. This is a real fish. And a real bloo...

The problem is really macroevolution. Anyone who rejects microevolution shows real ignorance. I agree, sort of...it's worth mentioning that some scientists do reject both theories. Some highly intelligent non-scientists do too. It's difficult to say "anyone who" and avoid the criticism of the oppos...

Except for that pesky missing link...might want to find that first, since everyone wants definitive proof of what we believe. Put your money where your scientific mouth is evolutionists. Prove evolution. Good luck. We'll be happy to walk through all the holes in the theory. After all, we owe you no ...

A guy at church initiates the opposite with me quite often. My 30-year-old "ricer" just rubs him the wrong way, I guess. He's dyed in the wool Harley, but doesn't have one anymore because he can't afford one (his words). I will never figure out why he does it...one day he was out there pretending to...

If a rider sees me waiting for the light to change in the left turn lane, makes a left turn toward me, leans over into the turn and shifts clutchless, pulling away from his/her green light, while simultaneously waving at me, looking me in the eye while nodding because it's just one more thing to do....

My bike did that, and a closer look showed my left shock preload was tampered with so they didn't match. Mine adjust by hand with a twist, yours might not.

Sometimes a simple sprocket change will give the desired result, depending on what you're after. It's cheap, too! My son's Hurricane is down one and up two in the front and rear respectively. Really gets up and goes and is still comfortable at license losing speeds. Not that that's a good idea. Your...

Here's Chris in a 16 foot diameter circle. You can really see the head looking to the destination. Just as important at low speeds, maybe even more. If you relax, like Paul said, you'll notice a huge difference. I also advocate the large parking lot concept. You can make huge confidence strides ther...

I never wore a bicycle helmet until a car stopped in the bike lane to make a right turn. The lady was waving me around her as she sat there. This was after passing me and swerving in there. That was in California, and motivated me to wear a helmet on my road bike. I din't have a motorcycle, and I'm ...
