I generally use Wifi to access the internet but when mobile that isn't really an option.

Meef,

I have an iPhone on verizon and use Pandora all the time. Being a techno-noob, I think it streams live via constant internet connection???

Yep.

Perhaps it might "disconnect" for a moment or two if it is "caught up" to allow emails and such to come though, but for the most part it is an open & active internet connection. This is on Pandora, but I assume other stuff like the scanner would work the same.

BTW Meef, Fox & Gibson are switched on and actively helping. I feel like I am finally getting some help.

Pandora will suck your internet usage dry in no time. You're better off downloading MP3s and using a music player. Figure about 5 megs per song.

I know how that is. Tires on the busa determined the oil changes. Typically 1500-2500 miles per rear until I went to sport touring tires. Can't throttle much in a corner past holding speed,but the mileage went up to 4500-5500 per rear. The Pirelli angels I put on are looking better for an inbetween. Higher miles than sport tires,but still grip better than the previous touring tires.

Some day I would love to try a Cummins 4BT install in this thing, it is just collecting dust.


I have (several) 1960 Caddy Coupe DeVilles, A rat Rod version with a 12 valve I6 mechanical pump Cummins would be insane. Just time & money right?

I think Gorman is trying to scare the new guy off. I've got almost 9000 miles on my original rear tire. Quite a first bike though.

Meef,

I use pandora and tinyshark pretty regular in my truck and while mowing. I use about 3gb of data a month between Pandora, tinyshark, google searches and email. I carry 2 spare batteries with me and can go through all 3 in a day if that tells you how much I use it.

Man it seems everybody is over around Columbus and only like 4 guys including me live over here around Dayton. For those few guys I have a question.

Im new to the area (~2 years) and this year I want to go camping, a lot. Now I'm not down with camping in big mowed spaces with grills set up and portapottys within 100feet. Im more of a rugged camping type of guy. My favorite spot down in KY was an island I had to boat for 15 minutes to get to. Any suggestions on nice places to ride to and camp that isn't 100 miles away?

There is a sweet Waggy running around Columbus with a 6BT stuffed in it, Looks bone stock. Problem is that the dana 44's couldn't handle that action. I know where there is a brand new in the crate 4BT that would be perfect for yours. If I were building a rat rod, it would have to be 2 stroke detroit powered, there is nothing like that sweet supercharged noise they make. We built a 55 ford pickup with a 4" chop when I was a pup, I would love to build another around my 4-71.

You should sell me one of those Caddo's. I would like to put together a pink Caddy for Krista, she digs Elvis, so it would be fitting.

If you ever have any questions or need help, let me know, mine's been keeping me happy for almost 65,000 miles (and it looks like it too!)

There's more than four of us but not all are daily posters and some just lurk. As for camping el-natural i Western Ohio. I am unaware of any parks allowing overnight camping out here. But travel towards SE Ohio across 35 and you will find Tar Hollow. Not sure in Wayne has overnight camping or not. But I'm sure there are state parks that do.

C-bus visit

Time for our annual trip to Easton for my wife's ophthalmic conference. I am thinking of heading to Mudflats in Galena after dinner tonight for some Rockabilly. Also thinking of heading to either the Mellow Mushroom or Brews for lunch tomorrow. Anyone care to join me so I don't have to drink alone?
