Oh Scottie, my first thought when reading your post was, "Deep thoughts by Jack Handy" sorry dude, can't help myself. Roverman.
<Thought Of The Day>I could get so much better mileage if I if I just rode "normally", I bet you in the realms 65-70mpg. My bike has plenty of torque. It takes little effort or throttle to get the bike up to speed in a timely manner. But yet I find myself cracking the throttle at every stoplight, even though a quarter throttle is more than sufficient to do the job. But what fun would that be? I mean sure it is still fun just putting along, and sometimes I do. But when you have gobs of Vinatge Torque idling in your fist, it's hard to NOT put it to work. So life truly is full of decisions. Do I get better mpg's and not fill up as often or do I enjoy the power to be had? I will now call this trade off the MFR, Mileage to Fun Ratio. Scottie J
I have a car port, better than nothing I guess.
I need to vent and elaborate a little bit on my new living arrangement. As I sit here on my patio, smoking a bowl and drinking a Woodchuck praying that the hispanic kids upstairs finally stop jumping through my ceiling after listening to this nonsense for over an hour, I wonder what kind of horrific mistake the wife has made with the choice of this place. I've talked to several neighbors over the last 3 days and most everyone is quite nice and all say this place is GHETTO "welcome to Waterfield Court". I have a car port but I fear the Blackhawk is at risk. I need a heavy duty bike lock. I fucking hate this place and I'm only 3 days into a 13 month lease. FML Scottie J
Yeah, this place makes me want to get my conceal carry. I was laying down uh bed last night and realized I still had my knife in my pocket. I said to my wife "I guess I don't need to bring my pocket knife to bed. On second thought, maybe I should." On 3rd thought, maybe I should get my Bowie knife out of my camping gear. Things can always be worse, but shit they should could be better than this place too.I need some ideas of how to protect the Blackhawk and deter people from wanting to steal it.Scottie J

The early bird catches the worm...
<THOUGHT OF THE DAY>Who needs a therapist when you own a bike?! Road therapy is not only more effective, it's cheaper and more rewarding than sitting in an office and explaining your problems to a person who doesn't really understand anyway. Jump in the sale and ride your problems away!Scottie J
Im actually a massive suporter of this ideaolgy.Before I started riding Ive always had issues with depression and sucidide but now Im the happiest Ive ever been, I get down and go for a ride, all my worries go away and STAY away!
...And whether there's a market for cosmetic injuries. Could be a career in that.....
There is no room for suicidal thoughts on a bike...... There's too many homicidal cagers to worry about! Seriously tho, I haven't been to a therapist in a few years now. Still have to see the psychiatrist to keep my meds in line, but no therapists. And why does my new apartment smell like an elderly couple died of old age while having sex in here?! I've been trying to figure out this smell for 2 weeks, and this is the best description I can come up with. It's not overpowering, but it's there.Scottie J
Definitely better when someone who takes meds for psychosis stays on there meds. I had a roommate once who attacked me for failing to wash a few things that another roommate had left in the kitchen sink. He saw a psychiatrist once a week. I think his next visit he divulged his freakout and moved out a few days later, most likely on the advise of the shrink.
The smell in your apartment is probably due to fat-slap sex. I'm not talking standard run-of-the-mill fat slapping, I'm talking industrial hanging flesh slappin'. Probably has permeated the carpet and walls. There may be grounds for you to get out of your lease if the smell remains. Creepish visual, don't think I would sleep well. Well good luck with that Scottie.
2. People who WANT tattoos and can't AFFORD them and end up with some really REALLY horrible ink preformed by a "hack". (I myself am guilty of 2 offenses in this catagory)
Ok, Scottie - we wanna know... are you guilty of the former or the latter? Did you end up with horrible ink, or were you the "hack" applying it? Or perhaps one of each?
Holding a cut off disc with your hand while pulling the trigger is NOT the correct way to tighten the hub screw. It hurts. Bad.
Hijack!ABOUT THE SMELLY CARPETFabreeze makes a powder to spread onto the carpet then vacuum that off.We started using that lately and I MAY not have to buy new carpeting for three more years.Put some Fabreeze drier sheets onto the inside side of the vacuum exhaust port filter of the vacuum.How bad do you WANT to move?Turn the stereo WAAAAYY up before you go to work one day and then arrange to meet your family for a long dinner later in the day.You will be gone in a week, just sayin'
Good luck, Scottie . Hope you get the job.
You got that right & 'spot on'.
I just spoke with the temp agency and Gunslinger is interested in meeting with me for an interview. I should know more tomorrow.
All dressed up for my interview in 90 minutes! I have to say I'm a little nervous.
yeah, best to not burn your bridge before you've crossed it. Good luck, buddy.
Nor after you've crossed it. Despite how good it would feel - be polite and just walk. God I hope you get that job, Scottie!
yeah, best to not burn your bridge before you've crossed it. Good luck, buddy.0
I didn't get the job.
Sorry to hear you didn't get any of the jobs, but getting jobs for the last few years has become a real PITA. No one wants, or has, to pay anything and regardless of what the pols say about the improving economy and job availability, I would still place the real unemployment figures for closer to 30%. Most of the unemployed have just given up looking. I gave up several years ago. Be glad you still have a job!Bare
That is a fantastic idea Tom! I love it! I already have a few ideas in my head. Yes, let's definitely discuss this over the phone and see if we can come up with a plan of attack.
This is awesome! I'm super excited for this!
Well, I'm going to want my Ace Air Canister touched up with some Madras type stripes top and bottom and an Ace logo in gold... might as well go with the Tom Lyons endorsed paint professional...
Make custom alloy tanks and fenders and bodywork for the Enfields.There is a small, but good, market for that. Most of the good stuff comes from UK with high shipping prices. People would order good stuff from the US.
Thanks Matt! Is that snow melting for you yet? I was just showing my mom the pic of your driveway last night.
And that's just for the putt! Try not to over-think it, Scotty Brown... Scottie, I edited my last post... God as my witness, I don't know how I ended up calling you "mulch-faceted"!
Don't worry Matt. My wife is the grammar Nazi, not me. Well, I'll be working on the house for the next couple of days adding on a sun room to the back of the house. Have to tear down the old screened in area that is currently there, but that shouldn't take long. The room itself should only take a couple of days to build, 1 big wall and 2 small walls, a door, and a bunch of windows.
Sure, just do like my mom did and pay for my travel expenses, materials, and $100 a day, x2 for my brother.
What's Fathers' Day?Never had any kids. None I'm aware of, anyway.
Exactly, I feel the same way. In fact if they had just asked me, I probably would've just given them each 1. That's how it was when I grew up in Wisconsin. And I won't lie, I started sneaking beers when I was 12. Wisconsin life. Hahaha.
+1 I'm 41 and I love my kid-free lifestyle. my buddies are buying braces, mini-vans and Disney vacations and I'm traveling overseas and playing motorcycles. Everyday is fathers day when you can do whatever the f*%k you want with your cash and time. Good times man, good times.
Because we are big and strong and don't need a fuss being made over us on one special day of the year. Most women need a bit more ego stroking than the guys I know and mothers day is a good way to get it done. Plus I get to buy a pressure cleaner on the pretense of it being a gift for her.
Why do I have to do anything for my wife on Mothers day? Isn't that our kids job? She's not my Mother. (Please don't tell my wife what I just said!) ...Jimmy
