Nose hair clippers. Here's why, certain RPM nose hairs vibrate and tickle the hell out of me...it's maddening on a high-mileage ride.

I just reach in with my dickbeaters and grab the little hairs one by one and pluck them out by the root.

It was good enough for our primitive ancestors living in caves -it's good enough for me...

I'm pretty sure they just let it grow along with the cheese between the sweaty parts. Not too into the clipping and hygeine those cavemen...

And all that pluckin' makes me sneeze.

But if I lettem grow long enough to hang out past the whole it doesn't bother me.

Have you had a Turkish barber burn the ear hair out yet? You know you're getting old when you damn near set the building on fire.

Best piece of equipment?

My riding lawn mower...w/cupholder for the cold malt beverage. If I fall off impaired, the engine automatically shuts off so I don't hurt myself. I may farkle it with an airbag, DVD player and GPS. It is equipped with a V-twin 725 CC Air cooled B&S engine, 6-speed trans w/reverse...I am considering transplanting an airhead engine. So far, no transmission output shaft seal leaks and I haven't yet converted to synthetic.

arai helmet

My Arai helmet due to my funny shaped head. Since they are the only manufacturer that makes different sizes as well as different shapes.

Great helmet, comfortable on me all day. Will replace it with a new one next year.

One of the gurus mentioned a rawhide hammer awhile back. About two weeks later I found one in a junk store for $3. Hickory handle, cast iron head and two big hunks of rawhide. No bounce, no mar and has a "What is that?" kind of cool.

Just keep it away from the dog.

$20 deerskin gloves from Home Depot. Putting them on is like shaking hands with an old friend.

Bota, I bought years ago. Holds about a quart, and will fold/pack away


Oh, and +1 on the SIG (.45ACP)
