VERY nice! I really like those v-nose trailers, I bet that really cuts down on the drag.

Yo Doc, is the road from Shores Lake to White Rock still closed? I've got some buddies coming for SLAP and they were thinking of camping at Shores Lake. I thought I heard you saying when that slide was supposed to be repaired?

Looks like a pretty interesting bike, about the same weight as a GS, shaft drive, and looks like convectional bike wet clutch gear box, vs GS dry clutch and getrag gearbox.

(590electrical output on the tenere?im going to guess its lower than a boxer engine with the externally mounted alternator.
Yammi: (590 watts) not sure how that compares

I thought the chores were reasonable, she isn't rebelling against the chores, she is rebelling against her parents, who in my opinion are dip shits.

I hope she succeeds in spite of her idiot parents but so far I would say her and dad are on the same level.

I would of donated the lap top to the Salvation Army, or Goodwill. A little more mature.
When I first saw that video this morning it had 30,000 comments. When Kimberly saw it this afternoon it was up to 98,000.

In about 13 years Elvis I we don't see you on YouTube shooting up laptops with your "gun".

You won't. Adult temper tantrums don't exactly set a proper example.

Speaking of kids. If my wife don't go into labor before Wednesday then we have to be at the hospital that morning at 6 A.M. and they will induce her.

So ready or not, here we go again.

I think all teens say bad stuff about their parents, I know I did. Thank goodness we didnt have internet and all that crap growing up.
Wow that video is up to over 105,000 comments! Here is an update the Father posted that is just as good. Great Dad in my opinion and will have a Daughter that is great as well. And yeah Elvis I don't think this is a temper tantrum but a lasting and good impression. (After all you are a rather new parent compared to me at least, wait until you have a teenage then comment) You of course are most welcome to your own take on this.
Read the updates by the Father.

Well if nothing else the cigarette in his hand was a classy touch and set a fine example.

I just wasted my wife's time too having her watch the video. She didn't think he was too over the top. She did say he was a dumb ass for making the video.
