Also the crappy weather today definitely confirmed we made the right decision with calling off the camping.

weird but true.. Potato (juice) will keep your glasses/goggles/faceshield from fogging. rub the potato on the lens/shield til it leaves a damp residue, let it dry and buff. I tried it, it does work.

We even turn anti-fog into a food discussion?

Wtf?

I don't know about you all, but I never want to get caught in my garage, rubbing my potato...... on anything I own.

Maybe if you want the Po-Tat-o-Po-Tat-o sound you have to rub a potato on it.

i know it was wrong to say but...

Yeah, but his bike is definitely bigger than yours... I like the potato idea. I did not know what a pin-lock was until this recent discussion. Makes more sense than locking your shield in the down position as I mistakenly suspected. All of these seem like much better ideas than holding one's breath at intersections.

I use one, mostly for Steph. She gets emails with links to Sat. pictures of exactly where I am/was. The cost for her peace of mind is worth it alone.

I didn't doubt the potato for anti-fog. I mean if you can make a battery out of one, why wouldn't it have other uses. That doesn't mean I won't point and laugh when you pull a spud out of the tank bag and rub it on your visor.

You say Potato, I say Vodka...

How do you get juice out of a potato?

He already told you, you have to RUB it.... and maybe buy it a nice dinner first.

Anyone want a set of R80/100 RT bars?

Could be used as roto tiller handles. Tall and a funky bend to them.

Not perfect. Tired of looking at them.

Will go in recycling on Monday.

I use a SPOT for that reason. Sometimes by the time I get to a campsite I don't have service. Liza can see where I am and I tell her about where I'll be camping so she can keep tabs on me. It's nice to not have to worry about calling.

They're super simple, buy it, register and set up your account. Anyone that knows your password can sign in and follow you along. You can set up links to a webpage and stuff but I didn't bother with any of that as Liza is the only that cares where I am.

I also set it up to send texts to her phone, basically just a predetermined one. "Got here, all is well", etc.

I like it and its nice to be able to go back and see where you were. GPS can do that as well.
