Slight wiggle could just need a truing.

I bought the wheel with the understanding that it is true... never had it on the bike.

Breakfast? Check! Cash money? Check! Packed and ready to go? Check!

Leaving soon to drop off the dog off at the "doggie spa", then a pit stop at Morton's for a few things and then to D.C. to check out all the new toys! I can't wait to see, sit on and play with all the bikes! If you need anything from Morton's (i.e. filters, parts, etc) text/call/PM me before 9:00 am and I will be happy to pick it up for you.

Hmmm ... I always thought that bit about Thai peppers hurting on the way out was a joke. Guess not. Lol!

Luddite calling for help

Okay, so I've been dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century. Have actually acquired a Go Pro Hero 3 for the trip this summer. Still have to find the right memory chip, but that doesn't matter because right now I'm not even smart enough to open the damn case.

Would anyone be willing to school me on Go Pro use? All the basics of loading it, using it, downloading the files, etc? This one comes with wireless control and wireless downloading. I could spend hours on the "net reading tutorials, but I'd prefer to learn hands on.

So ping me if you want to play with my new toy....... and teach me at the same time. I sure could use the help.

I have an original Go Pro. I could help you. I assume it's all the same as far as controls. I won't be around this weekend though. I'm heading up to Front Royal for a wedding in about 15 minutes.

Be mindful about power. They like to eat. Awesome bombproof cam. As far as the chip recommendation go with the fastest land biggest. What ever go pro sells but shop around. I think mine is 32 gig and class 10. Good luck and congrats on the new toy.

What extras did you get? I might have a few extra pieces of hardware if you need it

Anybody need anything from Nashville besides Carrie Underwood...I have already got her in the truck. Had to bust out Mike Fisher's front teeth but he's a hockey player he's use to that. Glass jaw m****f****r!!! Can't fight without skates on... Lucky me for the lockout;-)

Also made a little money on the deal sold him a couple implants...
