I went totally cellular almost 15 years ago and never looked back. Back then I was paying over $60/month. It has saved me beaucoup bucks over the years.

Yeah, I know, but I gotta go get some brake fluid.

I'm kinda pissed at Bill Eddy's right now. Last time I went in there they didn't have anything I needed, said they could get it for me by 12 (then failed to do so), and overprice anything i do get from there. So I'm kind of boycotting them.

I gonna try and start heading over to NWApowersports more often. Josh, seems nice and will beat any price around.

Brake fluid is brake fluid, go to an auto store. Yeah the Kawi shop is having a rough time right now, they didnt have one piece for the KTM 50 and we had to order everything, back in the day they stocked ALOT of parts. I know Josh at NWA, he;s a good guy. I havent been in that shop yet but I hear good things about it.

ive got a ton of it, and your spring compressor tools.

come by and get a can if you want, i redid my yota rear brakes recently, and have lots of blake fluid left over, its hydroscopic, so it has a short shelf life, id rather you use it, than me toss it out in 6 months.

I called over at Bill Eddys a few months ago to see if they had valve shims. They wanted $12/piece for the damn things. Got them at the Harley shop in Rogers for $1.75.

I have a few bottles that are half full, but they have been sitting too long.

That's the thing. One time I went in there to get an oil filter and he wanted $10 for it. Then I showed him on his own website that it was $7. He made good on the lower price but Geeze! Really?

I'm all about supporting the local economy, but I can get a pack of 10, high quality filters, online for $30.

I'm partial to a glass 3/4 full of crushed ice, two teaspoons of sugar, the juice of one lime plus half the lime, topped off with Captain Morgans "Tattoo". Purely for medicinal purposes of course.

Beautiful day on the river. Funniest thing I have seen over here in a long time was this dog "fishing" a big dead-end puddle that had 5-6 trout stuck in it. He'd catch one, set it alive on the bank, and go for another. I picked this little one up and put him in the main river.
Canine catch and release.
