pfft only time the Canadian beer is really really good is when you keep it cold in a snow bank! Adds flavor though the osmosis action of the bottle or something.

Had a good time the multiple times I was there. Can't stay for very long though. I go crazy when the tallest thing I can see is a cell tower thats a five miles away. I NEED my mountains.

Yep, love my mountains! North Carolina was too flat, and had too many snakes, bugs, hurricanes, and too much damn humidity!

And NO good micro-brews!

But I could get a 30 pack of Miller High Life for $10 on base.

Lithium Batteries

So I know a few folks have posted their Lithium battery swap projects. At the IMS motorcycle show last weekend, I visited the Shorai booth and a few others. One company claimed their battery was better because it had it's own cell management system built-in - but it was more expensive. Another claimed it was cheaper because they used "matched cells" however the competitor claimed that wasn't enough to offset management.

All of the companies had limited form factors and universal battery terminal posts, each of their own design. I'm thinking the lighter weight battery in the stock spot would help save my subframe and lighten my load. No reason to try to go the extreme route of inside the airbox.

Comments?
