    So you are just enhancing the stereotype of the "American" tourist who goes to a foreign land and starts getting all judgmental. Thank God that it's a stereotype and as most stereotypes go, mostly wrong.

    I did touch a nerve here looks like. Seems your real beef is with your employer who put the company's balance sheet before the human capital. Am presuming you have shown the same bravado aka "Fuck yourself" etc to them already :)

    I don't know if they'll even let you do this (was going to call today but got lost in Brooklyn instead. I swear Google Maps/iPhone has RUINED my sense of direction) but I would like to switch between my two bikes. I could care less about mounting it on the F650, but I really don't want to mount one on the Monster. Unless you can get them in titanium or carbon fiber, anyway. :lol3

    The real question is:

    Which is worse?

    :rofl

    And no, you don't categorize the US based on Elizabeth. Just New Jersey! :deal

    OK, now that the obligatory put-downs are out of the way...

    (and by the way, yes, GHO100 does do a fair job of sticking it to 'em)

    It is my observation, strictly empirical, that there are indeed many very bright, capable people all around the world, from all races, cultures and walks of life. The brightest and most capable of them all are the quickest to move away from places that lack what most consider to be the most basic infrastructure. The rest stay where they are and provide enough mediocrity and sneaky bullshit to create a solid impression that there is nary person in the entire country capable of doing anything but writing malware to fuck up Pakistani nuke plants.

    One job I had, the folks in Hyderabad were playing recordings of noise chatter and ringing phones when picking up support calls, so they could blow off important calls until their card games were over or they were finished with their cigarettes. In America only unions are capable of even approaching stories of such dickery.

    The job I'm leaving now, a couple of people disappeared mid-job because they were deported. Just this week I had one guy 8000 miles away who waited three hours for me to spoon-feed him an answer that he could have found on Google in five minutes. And I initially told him exactly what to search for. FYI, what he wanted me to do was tell him how to perform his job. If he can't do it without me, WTF do we need him for exactly??

    And don't even get me started on the folks were using in Argentina. Holy shit. I can't even decipher their emails and texts.

    Shit like that is part of why I today am happy to announce that my motorcycle riding will become substantially less torturous. My days of commuting to See-cock-ass NJ (and working with lazy dumb-asses 8000 miles away) are over as of Monday. I'll have more time to screw with you fuckers here and should have more time to bruce the taggers too.

    Hey guys, figured out the problem with my KLR: it was the ignition coil!!! This is the second ignition coil I've replaced on the bke in the last year.

    Anyway, here are some pics of Wednesday morning:

    Bike stalls for the fifth time trying to make it back home. You can see my tire tracks from my first stall (heading south)

    Pushed the bike 1/4 of a mile and waited for a ride

    Nice spot to wait for the wifey

    Replaced the ignition coil with the one from the Tengai and she started right up. Drove into the city yesterday (had a class on 120th and 1st) and no problems at all.

    I'm gonna order a new coil and some spark plugs in case this happens again.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions and be careful out there today, lot's of black ice!!!

    A few weeks ago the CIO of our company was having problems with IE. He called one of the consultants to take a look at his PC and fix it, ten mins later the consultant comes over and asks me what I think the problem was. Since I'm losing my job in 6 months and this guy is taking my position I didn't feel like giving him much information. I just told him to check the version of IE and apply any updates to his PC. He then asks me how to check the version of IE!!!! He also wanted to know how to run a windows update??????!!!! WTF, this guy gets $94 and hour, works 10 hours overtime a week and who knows if he pays taxes (he's on a H1 visa I believe) and he doesn't know how to run updates..... Freaking idiot could've googled the problem and figured it out.

    BTW, the only reason I mentioned in my first post on this topic that the consultants were Indian is because the CIO is also Indian.... I have nothing against people from other races/cultural/religion/sexual preference/etc....

    Brad, the argentinians might not be the smartest people in the world (sorry Juanjo) but the women are beautiful!!!!! :D:D

    I'm 99% sure they dont care which bike/car its on. Tags are registered to the account not a specific plate. Just no motorcycle tags on cars (thry want their money)

    I am not sure if it is still an issue but I have received violations twice for having the tag on the wrong vehicle. Once was in a rented car on the NYS Thruway and the other was on a bike on the NJ Turnpike.
    These were a few years back, but they did happen and something to think about. The thruway one I had to pay to the rental agency, the Turnpike one they let me pay the fine and "waived" the violation as a first offender.

    Thanks guys. I'll call and ask today. I wondered because there was something on the website re: multiple vehicles on account.

    Me too, I swapped the tag from the KLR to the Tengai last summer and got a ticket. Since they will not issue more than 4 tags per houselhold and I had 4 vehicles with tags already I had to swap one over to the Tengai. They dismissed the violation.
