A lot of proprietary chemicals are pumped in too, hence the PA water you can light on fire when it comes out of the kitchen spigot.

MSF coaches are adjunct professors, but don't have to interact with staff much. I would think it would be fun to be an adjunct professor. What type of class?

agree with this, riding season is fall through spring for me.

I don't have much interest in riding in the heat/humidity of summer, even when I'll be moving all the time and not stuck in stop/go (heading to the mts).

Have to admit, electrics make it easier...

Hmmm, not sure. I can check

Brian's hot cam kit in my garage (I'm guessing there is some specification on the package). Never had to do any shims on my '03 strom in 50K miles so don't know what they looked like.
