Thanks for thoughts. This day is getting better... Had some summer midterms today, decided to drive since it was raining and I didn't want to put on jean/shoes. Flip-flops and shorts are much nicer in this weather. Thought I got lucky and found a parking spot outside of the school building, only to ...

Eh it picks up pretty nicely once you're in their system. Figure you put the order in Friday, don't count Sat/Sun ever, 99% of the time you'll have the movies Monday. It's possible that they didn't "get" your order till close of Friday and it's the first thing to do Monday.

Pardon the daft question, but what do duel air intakes do? Do they mainly allow more power to bike?

I stop on a regular basis, be it car or bike that's on the side of the road. Annoys my folks and gf to no end, they're always thinking I'm going to be robbed or killed. :roll: I'm always reminded of that 911 case in NYC several years back where a woman (Kwane Brown if memory serves correct) was murd...

Did you guys see the study just released by (some US congressional agency) that the earth is hotter than it's been for the past 2000 years? They got their data from stuff like tree-rings, ice core samples and what not. Interesting stuff! :mrgreen: Yeah it's really insane. Our winter this year was p...

She's been reluctant to update her blog or otherwise let the forum know of her latest aquisition but, yes, that's more or less what she did. The special edition paint scheme is just plain sick! Pics don't do it justice, though, it's even better in person. Hmm, odd that she's been reluctant. In any ...

It's been a rough couple of days. Two of my friends have gotten into motorcycle accidents. The first one isn't very serious and concerns Ali, who is the other cruiser rider in our group. Ali was commuting home from work on the bike, as he does most days. Stuck in traffic he waited for the signal to ...

So I just started reading your blog today, and enjoy it quite a bit. It's really fun to read about your planning for a cross country trip, and I'm looking quite forward to reading about your adventures once you return. The funny thing is until I started to read your blog, I had no idea you were from...

Congrats on passing! Think about your decision seriously before deciding to not continue your education. I personally regret not completing my degree. I was about 1 year short of completing my teaching degree and decided I didn't like the politics involved and decided to become a paramedic. Great p...

Give it a shot for a month. If you walk into your local Best Buy or search online there are free first month trials availabe. I cancelled about 2 months ago, when I noticed I'd had the same movies for 3 months. :oops: There's just now time these days, but before that I loved them. The movies were de...

Good luck with the tail on the bike! I'd say try painting the tank to look like a horse next. :laughing: Though I understand where you're coming from. My gf hates the bike, and can not understand my interest in it. I've tried many times to cajole her into a short ride around the block on it, but so ...

I-Pass/EZ-Pass Holder

http://www.jjcyclepass.com/index.htm I find myself having to go through quite a few tollways at times, and find it very frustrating on my bike. Unlike cars with the I-Pass I can't cruise through the I-Pass lanes, since I have to stop grab the I-Pass out of my jacket pocket, and wave it around in the...
